Fishing trip , Perfume River TRAVEL Views of Vietnam After years of holidaying around Europe, Jo decided to take her teenagers to Vietnam. Rickshaw Travel helped her create a personalised itinerary of unique ‘bite-sized’ trips… 3 NIGHTS Flavours of Hanoi & Bai Tu Long Bay Stepping off the plane and into the heat, humidity and bustle of Hanoi was a big culture shock for our family. We soon got into the swing of things as we explored the Old Quarter and watched artisans at work. In Bai Tu Long Bay we stayed on a traditional junk boat sailing the emerald seas between jungle-topped islands and sandy coves. 2 NIGHTS Lending a hand in Hue After a short flight, we found ourselves on the banks of the Perfume River cycling through the peaceful countryside of rice paddies and water buffalo. We all had a go at catching fish with traditional river nets and loved the cooking masterclass making Bánh xèo which means “sizzling pancake”. 3 NIGHTS A break by the beach in Hoi An Next was a luxurious resort on the beach; the perfect place for some downtime. By night we sat amongst the hustle of riverside bars, street food vendors and strings of colourful lanterns. By day, we cycled into the countryside, stopping at local temples and thriving markets. 2 NIGHTS Scooting through Saigon If you ask my kids about their highlight, I can guarantee it was the Vespa tour. My fears about sticking them on the back of a moped in the rushhour traffic proved completely unfounded. The drivers were incredibly skilled and calm taking us to places we’d never have found ourselves, from holein-the-wall restaurants to live music venues. 3 NIGHTS A taste of life on the Mekong Next it was time for a slower pace of life in the Mekong Delta. We sailed by boat down the river, stopping to sip rice wine and watching locals make popping Water buffalo, Hue rice and coconut candy. We travelled down a beautiful waterway to our host family on the island of An Binh. Our rooms, though simple, were perfectly cosy and we gained a valuable insight into life on the Mekong. All good things must come to an end Our trip was the perfect balance of planned activities and the freedom to explore independently. The whole experience has given the family a new sense of confidence for travelling. Our next stop… Peru! Rickshaw Travel offer familyfriendly holidays across Asia and North & Latin America.
