Vietnam and/or Cambodia - safe with kids?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have traveled extensively with and without our children, but we have never been to Asia WITH our kids and none of us has ever been to Cambodia or Vietnam. We are thinking of a trip there next Fall (2011) with them. It looks absolutely stunning and exciting to visit. We would not want to stay in a resort where we were isolated but rather get out with the local culture and explore, perhaps renting a small house on the beach somewhere if that is possible. At that time the kids will be 5 1/2 and 7 1/2. My daughter is a beautiful blond and my son is a very pronounced red head. As I started to plan, I have become concerned about their safety since they will stand out so much in this region. I am also wondering about the health risks - my daughter in particular is very allergic to mosquitos and tends to be susceptible to illnesses. I was wondering if anyone has advice on these risks given our situation. Perhaps I am just being paranoid but if I need to worry the whole time I don't think that would be much of a vacation. :) Any advice is welcome!
