Where to stay

We are finalising our 3 week trip to Vietnam with our two children 12 &15 next April and I can't decide whether to stay at the beach or near the old town. Thinking maybe Life resort while we do all our activities or Red Bridge villas and then moving to the beach for a couple of days to relax. Which resort would be best for teenagers?

We like to be active what activities would you suggest with teenagers- thinking cooking class with Red bridge, would like to do a bicycle ride -where is best and who with?. Is it save to go on a guided motorbike ride with teenagers? Non of us want to drive just be passengers.If so where to travel to? We are real foodies andcan't wait to try many of the fabulous restaurants mentioned on this sight.

we stayed at the Hai Au and loved it.Very reasonable,clean,buffet breakfast and wonderful staff.Big pool and rooms too.They can help you with tours too...It's in a great location,10 minute stroll to the centre..and a nice bike ride to the beach.(2 beaches...ask the hotel for details of the local beach)

Hoi An Kids is a great service..we went to the Island on their free bike tour and it was fabulous..we were going on a pay bike trip as well but felt this was fine.

Red Bridge Villa is stunning - but you are a little bit out of town, I'm sure you will be provided with bikes to get around but it might be worth asking if there is transport back at night as those roads do get dark. The facilities are great though and they have a pool, the cooking classes and food are amazing and the villa has a great kitchen if you want to cook. Its difficult to find family friendly hotels in town, but things are changing.

Nearer the beach there are a few new villas opening on An Bang beach - our friends are staying in one next week - a stunning Vietnamese beach house that has just been completed. There is also a new homestay - An Bang Beach Village, which is a set of 4 little houses a few meters from the beach starting from $40, I hear they are going to have a tree house too. I'll post and let you know what are friends thought of the one they are staying in. They are two adults with 2 teenage kids. We did struggle a tiny bit to find them anywhere in town, the nicest we could find was the Long Life River Hotels family room which is well located on An Hoi just over the bridge from town. Hope this helps.

Life resort is nice place to stay as its near the ancient town and a river side property. Red bridge is good place for cooking class but expensive.

I would recomend Ms Hanh from Gioan restaurant that offer cooking classfor much cheaper price and really good too, plus market tour is included.

Cycling tour, should contact with Heaven and Earth in Hoi an they specialize on biking with beautiful route.
