Parts of Vietnam can still be described as off the beaten track. Tourism of any type is relatively new to the country, making it ideal for adventure travel. You can trek in the hills of Mai Chau, Pu Luong or Hoang Lien Son forest, while staying at tribal villages along the way, cycle through the countryside and authentic villages of the Red River and Mekong Deltas. Enjoy the frenetic energy of Ho Chi Minh City, visit the tailors and beaches of Hoi An, or wander the vibrant streets of Hanoi. No trip to Vietnam is complete without a visit to Halong Bay, a unique and outstanding seascape featuring thousands of limestone karsts and isles rising out of emerald-green seas. Kayak among the towering limestone karsts and beautiful lagoons, embrace its exceptional mystical beauty and appreciate the ecological significance which has led to it being described as the eighth wonder of the world.
For the more active traveller, cycling in the mountains north west and east of the country offers some of the best cycling terrain in Vietnam. The route sees virtually no tourists and avoids Vietnam’s notorious highways.
Whatever your style of travel Vietnam has an adventure waiting for you.
