People in Vietnam are friendly to kids, and the food is not spicy and often has a gentle taste.
It can be said that it is a country suitable for traveling with children, but it is also true that there are many worries when traveling.
Recently, mother and daughter trips are also popular.
■ Child-centered scheduling
Try to have a relaxed schedule so that you kids don't get tired. If you want to go sightseeing, it's recommended to stay in the morning or evening, which is relatively comfortable.
■ Hotel selection
Check for facilities such as pools and kids rooms, baby cots and water heaters.
■ Collect information
Check in advance where you can change diapers, where to breastfeed, and where the hospital can communicate in Japanese (or English).
From the airport to the hotel, there are buses, taxis, and tour cars.
Especially recommended is a tour-only car. If you arrange it with a Japanese travel agency, the local staff will greet you and send you safely to the hotel.
By the way, the lowest price is a bus, but only Vietnamese is spoken, and if you don't have a sense of geography, you don't know where it is closest to the hotel.
There are many people around the airport arrival lobby who request a high price after a proper sightseeing, posing as a local tour guide.
These people approach in half-word Japanese, such as “half-day sightseeing,” but you must ignore them all.
This is Vietnam in Southeast Asia, not Japan.
Vietnam is a safe country in the world, but damage such as snatching is frequent.
Shoulder bags and tote bags are particularly targeted.
It is also dangerous to put out iPhones and smartphones on the roadside.
Even in Japan, let's stop to secure a place by placing a bag in a restaurant seat.
If you have trouble, please go to the Consulate General of Japan.
The only way to travel around the tourist spots is by taxi. There is no train running in the city in Vietnam.
Buses have language barriers and motorbike taxis are constantly in trouble.
There are many taxis running in the city, so if you are in a tourist area, you should have no trouble catching a taxi.
However, when you take a taxi, make sure that the meter is moving.
First up is Southern Ho Chi Minh.
Ho Chi Minh has no World Heritage Sites, so tourist spots are mainly temples and museums.
Other than that, a mother-daughter trip with the theme of ""healing"" is recommended.
Most of the museums are also about the Vietnam War and the revolutionary Ho Chi Minh.
The end of the Vietnam War was 1975, and at that time it was broadcast extensively in the world, so there are some scenes that are nostalgic for parents.
However, Cho Lon is not so safe because of the wide gap between rich and poor.
Also, since there are few cafés that are air-conditioned, there are also difficulties when taking breaks.
If your parents are older, it is recommended that you go early in the morning and return to the city center before noon.
We have also gained support for film locations in Vietnam such as ”Indochine” and "L' Amant". Some parents may know them.
Both are located in the center of Ho Chi Minh City and Cholon, so you can visit the site in half a day.
If you are traveling with your mother and daughter, you should definitely enjoy Vietnamese aesthetics.
It is too expensive to go in Japan, but it is very reasonable in Vietnam.
However, if it is a cheap salon, you will not be satisfied with the service, such as requiring expensive chips or cheap technology. Therefore, Ho Chi Minh Town Information introduces beauty salons that can be recommended with confidence.
Made to order is also popular in Vietnam. Clothes, jackets, coats, and Vietnamese costume Ao Dai are also available.
You can decide everything from fabric to dimensions and embroidery.
How about making a new suit for your father? Custom-made suits made of high quality fabrics can be used for a long time.
Enjoying “food” is essential for traveling abroad.
If you are traveling as a parent and child, you want to eat a little expensive and delicious food.
Vietnam also has several French restaurants from the remnants of French rule. Why don't you like to enjoy a more luxurious meal than usual only when traveling?
Hollywood actors Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie came to the restaurant. It is about 10 minutes on foot from Dong Khoi Street in District 1.
You can enjoy Vietnamese cuisine and creative Chinese cuisine, and everyone can enjoy the taste.
Also, the old-fashioned atmosphere is impressive and there is a sofa seat in the back. Why don't you enjoy long stories with family?
The suburbs of Ho Chi Minh City have tourist areas such as Mekong Delta, Tay Ninh Province and Vung Tau.
However, if you go on your own, the only means of transportation is by bus, so if you don't understand Vietnamese, the hurdles are high.
If you have an older parent, you can use the tour because you want to go safely and comfortably.
A world heritage town, Hoi An, there were once trading boats on the Thu Bon River. Many Japanese came in the Edo period. The bridge drawn on the 20,000 Dong bill is "Japanese Covered Bridge".
A symbolic presence in the heart of Hoi An. Take a stroll through a good old town, a World Heritage Site, and spend your time forgetting time. It is a perfect area to heal a tired body from work or housework.
Buildings made during the prosperity of the Nguyen Dynasty, including the Royal Palace, are designated as World Heritage Sites. The building is a Chinese architecture or a French architecture, showing the changing times.
Hue cuisine is a popular dish that sets it apart from pho and fresh spring rolls. Please check the authentic taste.
This is also a World Heritage site. Bus tours run from Hoi An or Da Nang. My Son Sanctuary is known as the sanctuary of the once glorious Champa Kingdom.
Contrary to Vietnam, a Buddhist country, Champa was a Hindu Shiva faith.
There are also familiar statues such as Shiva, Parvati, Ganesha and Garuda, but many were destroyed during the Vietnam War. Restoration and excavation work are ongoing.
How was it?
As I explained at the beginning, “safety” is the motto when going with parents and children. The way of enjoying will vary depending on the area, so let's know the city information in advance.
I think that you can find a different way of enjoying it when traveling with friends and lovers.
That's all for Ho Chi Minh Town information!
