If travelling to Vietnam, the odds are quite high you’ll end up going to Ho Chi Minh at some point. It is pretty kid friendly- apart from the roads. There is a fair bit to do, and a variety of things to eat. What’s more, the people are nice and love children (though this can mean random cooing and touching your child’s face, much to Daisy’s dislike).
Here’s what I did with my three-year -old during our short stay in Saigon, plus a few tips on getting around this bustling city.
What we did:
Following a friend’s suggestion, we went to Saigon zoo- a bargain at only 20,000 Vietnamese Dong (about a dollar). It was a good way to ease Daisy into things as she loves animals and there were of course lots of other children there.
First off, we took the train around (you have to pay extra for this but I found it good for orienting myself) then wandered to see the different animals. It isn’t a huge zoo but it’s ok.
It also has some mini fairground-rides with a section especially for little children.
