    Backpack. Roads are crowded u don't want the little one in something u can't move out of the way of a moto that said, there are no real traffic regulations- or lights- make sure to teach the kids how to cross: walk forward slowly. Don't stop, don't run and let the traffic swerve around you about 9 years ago

    • Thx for the comment. I was in Vietnam 8 yrs ago & met a unscrupulous taxi drivers... but it was just money, not a safety issue. Now got 2 kids & want to go somewhere beyond your boring family holiday destination. The Vietnamese seemed to love kids - seems Original Nomad (below) agrees?

    In Ho Chi Minh, I think backpack is definitely better. I am sorry about the Farra Hannah's experience. I have taken many vans and taxis in HCM and never had any problems. You ask the fare for a trip and then get into the taxi. /youngsoon about 9 years ago

    Backpacks, as other recommended :) you also can buy almost everything essential for kids in VN, either market or convenient stores so dont worry too much. Just remember bring hats and waters when walk outside as you may fear to buy street drink for kids. It's safe to buy though, but the look may not be that attractive :) about 9 years ago

    We were there when our two were 2 and 4 and took both backpack and strolls. Both were useful. You can find tips for travel with children on my blog plus photos of the trip to Vietnam - a highly recommended experience. The Vietnamese are great with a young family ... As are most people in the world in fact. about 9 years ago
