Description of Tailor made family holiday in Vietnam

This 12 day tailor made family holiday in Vietnam hops between four of the countryís most interesting locations, all in the south of the country. Spend time in Indochinaís largest metropolis, Ho Chi Minh City, explore the Mekong Delta and its unique lifestyle, travel to the Central Highlands and discover French built Dalat, and finally relax on the beautiful beaches of Nha Trang.

Highlights include the famous Ben Thanh market in Ho Chi Minh City and Chinatown. Then enjoy the water based culture of the Mekong Delta, with its floating markets and tiny islands where fruit orchards thrive. Further inland and sitting on the edge of a series of plateaux, Dalat is Vietnamís market garden, blooming with gorgeous flowers, where fruit and vegetables grow in abundance. Here, you can also visit the Crazy House monastery, ride a cable car and see lots of beautiful temples. Nha Trang is a great place to relax at the end of your holiday, and itís the nearest thing to a traditional seaside resort that Vietnam has. It consists of one long sandy beach, lining a beautiful bay, with lots of islands, hot springs and water sports to enjoy here.

This family tour has been carefully designed to include activities that will keep children of all ages amused. All the activities can be tailored, to suit you and your family, and your interests, too. Vietnam is very child friendly, with lots to do and a warm welcome for junior travellers. You will also have an experienced guide who will be able to bring Vietnamís rich culture alive and help everyone in the family interact with local people and share in their daily life. We can even arrange a motorbike tour, using experienced guides who are happy to ride with children and teenagers, so that the whole family can enjoy Vietnam in this exciting, unique way.

You can visit this area of Vietnam all year round, so there isnít really a best time to go, but itís worth avoiding mid October to late December when the sea in Nha Trang is muddy, because of the rains.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We have built strong links with local communities, craftspeople, singers and musicians who are maintaining threatened traditions. We offer visitors an opportunity to meet them, thereby valuing their activities and thus helping towards their survival.

For example, at Vinh Long in the Mekong Delta, the local people will welcome an opportunity to perform their traditional Tai Tu music for you. Youíll help raise awareness of the need for conserving the old houses that are significant relics of the Mekong history.

Wherever possible, we contract local indigenous suppliers, assist them to improve the quality of their services and pay them direct rather than through intermediaries. By booking this tour, youíll be helping us to support Vietnamese service providers, small businesses, boat owners and other poor people in communities in areas such as the Mekong Delta.

Apart from the above, weíre also keen to raise awareness of the need for environmental and cultural conservation among young people. With this in mind, we use local freelance guides with wide experience and knowledge of cultural traditions and ecology, combined with an ability to interpret the milieu in each destination in a way that has meaning for adults and children. For this tour, youíll have several different guides from various provinces of Vietnam.
