First Timers with children

We are contemplating Vietnam with an 11 year old and a 7 year old next year. The problem is that I don't know where to even begin planning a holiday to Vietnam.We would be looking at two weeks. Any advise would be appreciated.

we've just spent 7 days in Vin Pearl Resort in Nha Trang- the kids (many many many of them ;-) ) were having an absolute ball- there is so much to do on Vin Pearl Land-

in other places, i think the most important decision you can make is to book hotels with swimming pools as the kids do need to keep cool and have fun after walking around

The other thing I think is probably important is not to try to fit too much travelling around with children of that age- perhaps choose either north or south and central.

start from Ha noi or Ho chi minh (depends on where your flight in VN), If start from Hn, so HN (Ha long, Sapa) - Hue - Hoi an - Nha Trang- HCM(mekong delta)

Lots to do here in Nha Trang. It's very kid friendly. You can book a hotel with a pool or go to Louisiane, they have a pool there as well as a nice beach. The new mudbaths (I-resort) is also good for the family. Vinpearl has a waterpark, amusement park, and aquarium.

You can see many places in 2 weeks if you want.You can start your trip in SaiGon or either Hanoi, But it might be cheaper if you fly in and out in the same city and Saigon seemed more popular to start with, but gain depends which month of year you want to do this trip.VietNam has lots to offer for family with kids.Many beautiful beaches such as Mui ne, Nha trang, Phu Quoc, Con Dao, Danang, Hoi an etc.

Mekong delta is also a great place for family to experience local life lots riverine culture.
