I am planning a trip to Vietnam with my wife and two young kids. Wondering if anyone else has done a trip to Vietnam with children, and any suggestions or tips to make it into a great experience. Are there are health concerns for young kids, like malaria or diseases that we need to plan for? Which areas have got the most attractions for kids, as we might spend only a few nights in the big cities like HCMC or Hanoi but want more time in the more rural, traditional Vietnam. Halong Bay is obviously on the itinerary, but I also like the sound of Cat Ba island for a few days.
Suggestions or advice please!
