Vietnam Family Holidays

From kayaking on Halong Bay (and sleeping aboard a private junk boat) to making your own spring rolls in a Vietnamese cookery class, a family holiday in Vietnam will let you and your kids fully explore the rich culture and beautiful scenery of this diverse destination.

A thrilling activity for teenagers is the evening Vespa tour, buzzing through the crowded streets of Ho Chi Minh City. As the sun sets you will be whisked through the winding streets, riding pillion as an experienced guide shows you the best street-food treats on offer. 

In the lush mountain region of Mai Chau, you can do as much or as little as you like – perfect for when members of your party prefer different ways to relax! Those who want to chill out can enjoy the luxurious comfort of eco-lodge accommodation, while the sporty ones can set out on cycle rides or treks, or join an expedition to explore nearby caves. 

For a glimpse of traditional Vietnamese life, try a homestay in the village of Ky Son. Younger children will be fussed over by the friendly community, and kids of all ages are encouraged to join in with village life and delve into the history of Ky Son's beautifully preserved buildings and landscape.

The port town of Hoi An is an enchanting place to stay, and kids can even take part in special cookery classes - perfect for budding chefs. The twinkling lights along the harbour are beautiful, especially during the delightful monthly Full Moon festival, when the town is lit up by hundreds of colourful lanterns.

If you’re looking for a luxury hideaway where you can spend quality family-time, the Nam Hai near to Hoi An has stunning villa-style suites where everything is taken care of, and you can simply sit back and relax in the sun while the kids splash in the private pool or play on the beach.
