But are your kids interested in cultural value? When walking around Hue’s royal citadel in the blazing heat, will they be really attracted? Sadly, it might be no. Indochina travel reviews

The laidback atmosphere of the classic beach town of Vung Tau, which is only a two-hour drive away from Ho Chi Minh City, is great for families preferring to make their own itinerary. The Ho May Culture & Ecotourism park (1A Tran Phu, Ward 1) is the most celebrated activity here. Your family can take advantage of a cable car trip to the park itself, a short horse-drawn carriage ride, access to the amusement park and waterpark as well as a chance to soar on a zipline for around VND 300,000 (USD $13.2) per member.

On day two, why don’t you take a trip to the Binh Chau Hot Springs, located off Highway 55 about 60 km northeast of Vung Tau instead of hitting Vung Tau’s beach, which often suffers from unsightly pollution? The feeding demonstrations at the crocodile farm close by can keep these kids, which are not ready to enjoy the peace of a good soak, interested.

Covering over half of the island, the huge Phu Quoc National Park is an ideal venue where you can camp for one night or two in the subtropical wilderness.

Phu Quoc has been targeted as Vietnam’s next big tourist destination by the Department of Tourism. Opened in 2015, Vinpearl Phu Quoc (Ganh Dau, Bai Dai), which includes a safari, a theme park and an aquarium, is a place to visit with your kids.
