When it comes to planning family orientated trips, Rickshaw Travel has expert insight; its Vietnam family offering is full of variety for families with children aged eight and upwards.

They’ll continue their real Vietnam adventure by farming in Hue along the banks of the Perfume River, and they’ll receive a great sense of fulfilment by helping to support a local not-for-profit organisation in Hoi An, The Lifestart Foundation (by taking part in a painting class and learning how to make a traditional miniature lanterns) which helps disadvantaged Vietnamese people become self-sufficient through vocational training.
