Traveling with a toddler in Vietnam

Posted by missmessy on 29/7/2009 at 23:03

Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences traveling with a toddler in Vietnam. I've been there 3 times before, but in November, it will be the first time with my almost 2 year old. Any pointers? Tips? Things to look out for? Should we take an umbrella stroller or perhaps an Ergo carrier?
We're only going for a week and will probably just visit HCMC, Da Lat and maybe Mui Ne.
Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks Brucemoon for the links. I didn't see the first one because I only searched in the Vietnam forum. All very good advice though. I think we'll keep the stroller at home and use a carrier.
