Vietnam South Central Coast | Travel with your family in a week

Mud-bathing-helloVietnam

Traveling up and down the length of this S-shaped country may take you at least 2 weeks straight to somehow get to know what Vietnam basically is. However, what if you are only allowed to take a Vietnam family seven-day tour and must save the rest of the trip in other neighboring countries and it seems like you strive for a diversity in just one trip? If this sounds like you, it’s time to go for this advice. Check out what the South Central Coast can offer.

Hoian-tofu-with-syrup-helloVietnam

Hoian tofu with syrup

South Central Coast is the term given for a long narrow area lasting from Danang to Bình Thuận. Its Eastern side faces the giant Pacific Ocean, while the Western direction is enclosed with high and medium mountain ranges named Central Highland area feature a diversity of ethnic communities and their spectacular tribal customs. Because of such, South Central Coast is able to bring you a wide range of experiences within just 7 days. It can be culinary, aqua-related activities, trekking, picnic, festivals and cultural sightseeing. That is the reason why you should not skip this land without a single hesitation.

Cliff-of-stone-plates-in-Phú-Yên-helloVietnam

Cliff of stone plates in Phú Yên

Embarking at Danang seems like a perfect idea. You can choose to tie it up with Quảng Nam Province in a package, or spend half a day exploring the city itself featured its main attractions then start arriving in Quảng Nam. From here, spend 2 days and 1 night in the province itself. Find a good accommodation within the area of Hoian Old Quarter in order to take a walk around Hoian when night falls and get a sightseeing trip out of town. Consider spending the first day in Hoian and its surrounding whilst the second day moving further to Mỹ Sơn Sanctuary. Various Vietnam tours offer daily excursions including all these two cities so you do not have to worry about mapping out a perfect plan.

Mỹ-Sơn-Sanctuary-helloVietnam

Mỹ Sơn Sanctuary

During the rest of the trip, take a train or a sleeping bus further down South to Bình Định – Phú Yên or Khánh Hoà. As you are taking a Vietnam family tour and kids get involved, moving too much does sound that nice. Hence, either Phú Yên or Khánh Hoà is enough. If you are that type of traveler who likes to see what is regarded as sensational and everybody is so into, Nha Trang City in Khánh Hoà Province is a good choice. Otherwise, I strongly recommend the Bình Định – Phú Yên douce, two lesser-known coastal cities with not so many tourists gathering, making them possible to maintain the initially pristine beauty.

Ô-Loan-Lagoon-helloVietnam

Ô Loan Lagoon

Now, your time may have roughly 4 days in its budget. You can choose to either sign up for a local family tour in Vietnam to roam the two cities of Bình Định and Phú Yên mentioned above or spending all four days in Nha Trang with tons of diversified activities. For the group of Bình Định and Phú Yên, besides the spectacular natural sites, authentic delicacies you should go for are Quy Nhon fish roll noodles, Tây Sơn cow intestine, King Crab, Lamprey, coconut rice paper, Bàu Đá wine and the list goes on. While in Nha Trang, there is no need to give any more words as the city has become extremely well-known in both the local wanderlust community and foreign travelers. Mud bathing is a unique type of experience you can consider checking out, apart from its side relaxing selections such as spas and massage.

So, what is in your mind at the moment? Have you been clarified on what you should do during your upcoming trip to Vietnam with your beloved ones? If not yet, no worries, local operators are here to give you the finest Vietnam family tour choices covering all of the places I mentioned above in just one package, and you have zero fear about what to do, what to eat how to transfer from place to place. The deep blue sea may seem to be a focal point that makes Vietnam South Central Coast stand out imposingly, yet the strange topography, native delicacy, historical values and untold stories that only locals know brought that reputation to this place.
