Vietnam family holiday with teenagers
Description of Vietnam family holiday with teenagers
Take your teens into Vietnam on this nine day tour that focuses on cultural immersion and keeping active outdoors (four days of cycling) in and around Hanoi, Halong Bay and Hoi An. From bikes and boats to hiking and kayaking this family holiday is all about immersing older kids in the weird and wonderful world of Vietnam via a range of exciting and eye opening experiences.
Northern Vietnam is an absolute pleasure for families with rural regions, such as Mai Chau and Ninh Binh, often overlooked by fast-moving backpackers. Keeping teens on the go, as well as allowing down time moments to make new friends, is part and parcel of this tour with loads of opportunities to learn, laugh and live in lifestyles very far removed from their own.
A couple of nights spent afloat on Halong Bay will also show teenagers that there’s much more to life than tech before a flight to Hoi An takes you further back in time as well as placing your family temptingly close to the beach.
From cycling through paddy fields and the streets of Hanoi to kayaking and living on board a junk boat in Halong Bay, this family holiday in Vietnam covers all bases to allow teens, and parents, to keep active as they travel as well as having fun with newfound friends.

PlanetOn this tour, all travellers will receive a reusable cloth bag to use throughout the trip. Plastic pollution is huge issue so this small gesture for our clients will assist in campaign to stop the use of plastic bags while shopping and visiting market places for souvenirs.
Responsible travel is one of the pillars our company is built upon. All of our travellers are provided with information regarding responsible travel at all stages of the booking process and while travelling with us. Our leaders are also trained extensively in responsible travel and will advocate for this throughout our trips. On our vehicles we supply drinking water so travellers can re-fill their water bottles.
On this trip we try to use local transportation where we can. To assist in minimising our transportation impact we ride bikes 4 days of the itinerary. Which is also a fantastic way to see and discover this amazing country.
PeopleAn important part of travel is mixing with the locals and experiencing “real life” in the destination. On this trip, we visit small cafes and restaurants and buy locally produced crafts and produce. This gives locals the opportunity to earn money directly and our travellers the chance to interact with locals. Our travellers experience an overnight stay in the Mai Chau region. Mai Chau is home to a variety of minority groups with their own unique culture and languages. We stay in a local homestay. We use only Vietnamese leaders as well as local guides in many destinations.
All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by Vietnamese (most of whom live locally) including all our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides, and accommodation providers.
We have a Foundation which was set up to empower travellers to have a positive impact on the communities they visit. Our Foundation now supports over 50 local, grassroots projects around the world. Over the past 15 years, The Foundation has distributed over AU $5 million to projects tackling areas such as sustainable development, human rights, child protection, environmental conservation, wildlife protection, education and healthcare. On this trip we join our friends at KOTO for lunch. KOTO stands for 'Know One, Teach One'. An organisation supported by The Foundation, it trains street kids for careers in the hospitality industry.
This family trip has a maximum group size of 16, to minimise our impact on the places we visit. Overtourism is an issue we are very conscious of and we are taking measures to ensure our impact on the communities we visit and their environment is our top priority.
