Vietnam with young children
10th July, 2006
Having been backpackers over 20 years ago we are now thinking of travelling to Vietnam for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year with 2 children- 3 and 8. Has anyone had any experience or come across people travelling with young children in Vietnam and can you recommend a route that is not too stretching for such a limited period. We do not want to go down the "organised package" route but would like to explore a little rather than stay in just one place.
look forward to hearing from you

I've met many travellers with kids on board in Vietnam -- most using the train system. The train allows you to visit many of the key destinations without needing to deal with much of the traffic issues in Vietnam. It is pretty affordable and safe.

Watch out for the local custom where a local sticks a dirty thumb in your kids mouth to check the teeth - their indicator of good health.
You can get real milk at Metro and C+ supermarkets throughout VN in the larger centres.

Vietnamese people love children in general, and "white" kids in particular. They will get a lot of attention everywhere. If they can cope with that you will have a great time !
