Kayaking Halong Bay
About 170km northeast of Hanoi, Halong Bay needless to say is a must-see destination should be in every Vietnam itinerary. The bay’s water is calm and green, making it the perfect for kayaking. Aboard a boat cruising through the bay is a must, but if you want to zoom closer into limestone karst, rent a kayak and paddle between islands and islets, explore hidden lagoons and secret cave that large boats cannot reach. It will reveal the very exotic perspective of the bay.
Conquering Mount Fansipan
At 3,143m high above sea level, Mount Fansipan is the highest peak in the country and dubbed as the Roof of Indochina. Conquer the summit has been become a challenge for any conqueror. The best time to take conquer Mt. Fansipan is from Sep to Mar when the dry season comes.
Do it right now before the cable car that is now under the construction finished and hundreds of people flocking to the region. With the new cable, it is expected to take about 15 minutes to reach the summit.
Motorbiking through the deep north
Saddle up for the Vietnam motorbike tour of a lifetime in the rugged mountains of Vietnam’s deep north. The roads are absolute rollercoasters, the scenery is simply stunning.
Cycling the Mekong Delta
Forget about those newfangled engines and pedal through the back roads of the Mekong Delta – a patchwork of emerald greens. Stick to the roads less travelled or jump on the odd boat or two for the full Mekong experience.
See a different Vietnam under the water by diving off its dramatic coastline. The colorful coral reef in Nha Trang, or further to the South in Phu Quoc Island or the final frontier, Con Dao.
If all that underwater stuff sounds too deep, then float above it all with something more carefree like kitesurfing. Mui Ne is the unashamed kitesurfing capital, but the sport is taking off up and down the coast.
If those entire underwater things sound too deep, then float above it all with something more laid-back like kitesurfing. Mui Ne beach is a 16 m long stretch of why sand beach on Vietnam’s southeast coast.
Exploring Vietnam’s national parks
Vietnam’s jungle is massive – well at least in some of the protected areas. Track shy wildlife, hike to hidden waterfalls or mountain-bike down paths in one of the country’s remote national parks, such as magnificent Cat Tien.
