Traveling with children to South Asia is not only possible but incredibly rewarding! As a travel professional, I am often out exploring the Indian subcontinent and beyond. When possible, my three children accompany me on trips abroad. From staying healthy to scheduling, here are my tips for comfortably exploring South Asia as a family.
On your next visit to Vietnam, skip the big bus tours and spend a few days exploring the magnificent landscape of Sapa. Established as a hill station by the French in 1922, Sapa overlooks the terraced rice fields of the Muong Hoa Valley. Thick mist and low clouds across the valley add to the panorama, now mostly populated by H’mong, Tay and Dao hill tribes.

Did you know that Sodha Travel offers private and custom tours to Vietnam? Vietnam is a country that honors the past and celebrates the future. Sharing borders with Cambodia, Laos, and China, the topography varies from coastal plains to mountain ranges. The Vietnamese culture has evolved on the basis of the wet rice civilization, and the local lifestyle is closely related to its village and native lands. The diversity of the 54 ethnic groups is apparent in the many traditional and cultural treasures. More popular destinations include Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Sapa, Da Nang, and the limestone pillars of Ha Long Bay.
