1. Choose the right advisor for perfect family travel

At the beginning of a journey, you often think about where to stay, what to eat or how to move with the most convenience during your trip. These works require you to manage, arrange carefully and take you a lot of time.

It is better to have a good knowledge advisor of a travel company who helps you plan your itinerary to save your time. You will be less tired in choosing the location, form of travel or eating.

2. Plan a suitable itinerary for the family in Da Nang

Travel with Baby
  1. If you want to travel together with your family, especially when you have young children, you should choose a suitable form of itineraries. You should range a trip 3 days 2 nights or 4 days 3 nights at least. The more days you have in Da Nang, the more relaxing you can enjoy. 
  2. Selecting the short itinerary per day, not a long day trip, fits your family with a baby. And, when you will spend less time per day outside your hotels or resorts, your babies feel more comfortable.
  3. Vietnamdrive recommends you should not book package tours which you join with other people. It’s because these tours make your family feel rush.
  4. We recommend you choose the open-tour form to travel. You just book a private car to transfer to the tourist destinations to visit. This helps you be flexible to move around with your children and finish the tour when your babies want to. And, you have a private space for your small family, save your money, but still get luxury travel in Da Nang City.

3. Best time to visit Da Nang for babies

Young children are often sensitive to weather changes, so you need to pay attention to time correctly. If you want to travel to Da Nang, you should come from March to May. This is the best time to visit this city.

One thing to note is that you should not go on Tet holidays (usually at the beginning of February) or hot Summer holidays ( June to September). It is because this time is so crowded with visitors, and you cannot avoid the cramped places. That will make your children seem hot and tired.

Bringing food and water will help you to be more flexible in feeding your baby. You can bring other things like milk bottles, pies, sausages, fruits, and water.
  • Trolley: For babies under five years old, the cart will make it easier for you to move your children. Also, a covered trolley will help children to avoid sun exposure. So, they can sleep when being tired.
  • Hygiene: Diapers, toilet paper, wet towels, and toilet paper are indispensable items for children.
  • Clothes and toys: You should bring a hat, a sun protection suit and baby clothes for your children. Besides, young children often cry, so their favorite toys are easy to fascinate them quickly.
