8. What type of food is typical of Vietnam?
Vietnamese cuisine is quite varied from the North to the Centre and to the South, having had many external influences over the years that have created an interesting mix of cooking methods and ingredients. French presence in the recent past has led to the assimilation of French cuisine influence, and is often attributed with Pho noodle soup's rise to popularity. Most meals include rice, as well as fish sauce which is a popular condiment added to almost every meal throughout the country.

13. Do you do "familymoons"? We need to take our children with us but also want to have a romantic honeymoon experience.
The world is pretty much split into those who have children and those who do not. But the familymoon is a wonderful opportunity for all family members to spend time together and form those important new bonds. For us, the important factors to consider are going somewhere that you feel confident and comfortable to leave your little ones in the hands of the hotel for a few hours so that you can steal a few romantic hours together… but also to feel that you can spend great time together as a family too. We recommend you to book a package with upper hotels/ resorts where provide "children zone with toys".
