Travel : Vietnam - Hanoi with 2E2A3C

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Travel : Vietnam - Hanoi with 2E2A3C

Postby skss » Wed Nov 16, 2011 11:58 pm

I'm planning a trip to Hanoi with my elderly parents, my DH and my 3 primary school kids mid Dec 2011 F&E for 6D5N.

Anyone can advise :-
1) weather - what kind of clothes?
2) places to visit?
3) how to arrange for transfer?
4) commuting around there?
5) food?
6) any other things I need to look out for?

Halong bay cruise is a must, relaxing cruise for the entire family.

Is half a day enough for Halong bay cruise?

Nope, half day is not enough. The journey itself from Hanoi city to Halong bay takes about 2 hours.

Best is if you can spend 2 days in Halong bay, than you must take the overnight Bhaya cruise. Loads of things to do, kayaking, morning taichi on deck etc.

You can check out this website, they are my supplier in Vietnam.
