Vietnam for Families

With Young Kids

Children are adored in Vietnam, and while overwhelming cities and long travel times may test the patience of the youngest members of the family, a holiday to Vietnam is a truly rewarding experience. At Scott Dunn, we make sure that your little ones are well looked after through family-friendly resorts, with specialised children’s programmes and a host of entertaining activities.

Villas and bungalows on the beach, over the water, between the rocks, or perched on the mountainside have space for all the family and will make you feel like you’re the only people at the hotel. They come with ocean-view terraces to relax on once the kids are in bed and private pools in which to make as much noise as they like. Incredible activities in the kid’s club Vooc Village will introduce children to the environment, let them be alchemists, pirates and photographers, and take them star gazing.
