Advice for family with kids

We are arriving in Hoi An Sept 17 with 2 kids aged 7 and 10. What day trips should we do? Love the look of Cham Island and a cooking school (don't know which one?) and also want to do My Son. We are staying at Swiss-Belhotel. also open to restaurant suggestions that are child friendly. Should we expect wet weather? We are there for 9 nights so heeps of time.

Swiss-Belhotel is a great choice for families.. We love the pool. However this hotel doesn't have the best customer care.....Just be aware and enjoy... There is an Adventure Playground for kids at Dingo Deli, 229 Cua Dai Road, on the right on your way to the Ancient Town. Make sure you also check out both beach scenes Cua Dai Beach and An Bang Beach....and the town is easy to ride bicycles around take the kids off into the back alleys and rice paddy fields for a ride. It is the best way to see the local life and is safe riding.

I would recomend cooking class at Gioan restaurant by the riverside, much cheaper than Red bridge or Morning glory cooking school but the Chef is friendlier and you will have market tour included.

The bike Ride to Tra Que village is very nice and quiet, safe for kids as its small path and no trafic and it take you through villages so quite authentic.

I think you should expect wet weather and that will possibly mean Cham Island is doubtful - but carry a poncho each everwhere you go and you will still have a great time!

As for restaurants I have yet to find one in Vietnam that isn't child friendly.
