1 wk beach trip in Vietnam Oct 2012 for family with 1 child

Hi, we are flying to Ho Chi Min on 28 Sept for one week with our 9year old, and would love to spend 2 days in HCM and the rest of the week at a quiet beach resort. Any advice please? Was hoping to not have to drive too far from HCM. I hear Nha Trang is lovely, but think the drive may be too long for us. I read in the forum that the airport at Nha Trang is military only.

It's less than an hour to fly to Nha Trang. New local airline, Vietjet is doing some very cheap fares at the moment. Plenty to do and see in Nha Trang and good for kids.

Othewise drive to Mui ne, much quieter but nice. Not so much to keep the kid busy. Takes about 5hrs.

Nha Trang airport is now moved to Cam Ranh and its only 30 minutes drive from the city Center so you should not worry.The flight from SaiGon to Nha Trang is less than 45 minutes too.

Enjoy your holidays1

Cheers,

How old is your child ? Nha Trang is better suited to young kids but not so much for toddlers. Mui Ne would be better if your child was a toddler as its a much more laidback type of place that is not into Disney-like attractions.
