We promise you, the words 'I’m bored' won’t emanate from your children even once during your Vietnam family holidays. With jaw-dropping scenery, incredible food, atmospheric temples, and significant cultural sights at every turn and idyllic beaches that plead with you to be photographed, it’s easy to lose count of the mesmerising experiences on offer here. The UNESCO-listed Halong Bay is one of the main tourism magnets in Vietnam and is a must-visit. It offers a classic image of the country – towering limestone pillars topped with lush green vegetation litter turquoise waters, as do the colourful
boats that bring a multitude of visitors to swim and kayak in its hidden caves – all of which will delight mini travellers. Next up, make your way to the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi for a fantastically frenzied hit of culture that will give curious minds a serious workout. While there are naturally many city tours to choose from, wander around the Old Quarter without a plan and you’re guaranteed to bump into just as much adventure. Visit the hub of Ho Chi Minh City for a fantastic blend of old meets new, where you’re just as likely to stumble across a sleek designer hotel as a historic temple that honours ancient traditions. End your stay with a daytrip to Mekong Delta, an enchanting floating gem where markets, houses and boats bob on the water. Sail the labyrinth of quiet canals and waterways on a traditional sampan among coconut trees and market stalls and marvel at the otherworldly beauty of Vietnam.

Holy everything! WOW! We adored the Park Hyatt and our suite (which was a massive surprise) was gorgeous. What a lovely, chic and very classy hotel that is. Not over the top and deeply comfortable. We look forward to returning there. Six Senses is also an extraordinarily beautiful place.
What can you find on a Vietnam family holidays that you won't find anywhere else?
With its unbeatable blend of culture and adventure, families will love Vietnam. Every trip we arrange is entirely tailormade, but all Vietnam family holidays should include a visit to fun foodie city Hanoi, where we can arrange a private tour with a resident food blogger. Then head off to cruise and kayak around the lush limestone landscapes of Lan Ha Bay. Enjoy a bike ride through verdant rice paddies near Hoi An, take part in a Vietnamese cookery class with a family in Saigon, and finally lounge on the beautiful beaches on Phu Quoc Island.
There will be plenty of highlights on your trip, but we'd definitely recommend riding pillion on vintage Vespas on a street food tour in Saigon; visiting one of Central Vietnam's last remaining hill tribes on a 4x4 tour past verdant green rice paddies and cycling to see the UNESCO-protected Imperial Citadel in Hue. These are the sorts of memorable experiences you can expect on one of Original Travel's Vietnam family holidays, and we believe these trips work particularly well for families with teenagers.
