Introduction
Adventure is all about the experiences, let’s go off the beaten path on the packages to Vietnam. Starting the trip in charming Hanoi, on the back of the bike, exploring the city’s labyrinth of backstreets, and admiring the faded glory of the architecture around the French Quarter. Next, travel out of Hanoi to a rustic, rural region that feels a world away from modern life. Mai Chau is an inspiring combination of stunning scenery and fascinating local culture. Afterward, we visit the spectacular terraced mountainside of Sapa and North Vietnam. Bring your hiking boots and head out into the hills, stopping at minority villages to witness traditional local life first-hand.
 
Then deep in the misty, vine-clad mountains along Vietnam’s border with Laos lies Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, one of the country’s most beautiful and unspoiled regions. Moreover, discover the breathtaking enormous cave complexes which riddle its towering peaks and explore Tu Lan Cave, accessible for all levels as a part of the Son Doong Cave system, reputedly the largest cave in the world. Leaving Quang Binh behind, you’ll then fly to Ho Chi Minh for another spot of urban exploration. A restored Army Jeep will take you to get around the bustling street and to the city’s historic landmarks, from the Opera House to the Notre Dame Cathedral. Lastly, for a full picture of Vietnam’s past, you’ll stop by the War Remnants Museum which offers powerful insight into the Vietnamese War years.
