    Ellarose,

    wrong time of the year for Central Vietnam as the winter monsoons start in September and last thru December/ January or later - so expect rough weather at times with strong winds & rain. Maybe OK down in Nha Trang but not in Hoi An or further north. We have two young daughters & we live here in VN....VN people are wonderful with children so in general you will be OK. Pick your hotels & destinations carefully (research!!!) & lots of time for the kids to stay in one place & run around.
