Adventure Life’s Vietnam Tour in the New York Times

The New York Times ran a nice story on Sunday, November 8th highlighting Adventure Life’s Vietnam Adventure Tour.

On this new trip from Adventure Life experience some of the best and more hidden parts of Vietnam. Exploits on this 12-day trip include: trekking through Hmong villages, exploring the enchanted city of Hanoi, spending two nights on a junk boat in Ha Long Bay, and the flexibility to choose your own adventures such as rock climbing or cycling.


After arriving in Hanoi, spend the first day walking and learning about the incredible history and architecture of this enchanted city in the company of a renowned local historian. On day 2, now having shaken off the flight, the trekking begins to remote Red Zao and Hmong villages in Sapa to experience first-hand their way of life.


The next adventure involves spending two nights on a junk boat cruising around the towering limestone islands in the emerald Ha Long Bay. Excursions include exploring the Cave of Surprise, Drum Cave and Bright and Dark cave; a climb up Titop Mountain for a panoramic view of the bay; and swimming and hiking at Titop beach and Soi Sim Island.


On the way back to Hanoi from Ha Long Bay stops include Bat Trang pottery village with a visit to its ceramic factory and a rickshaw ride along the bank of the Perfume River to the Hue Citadel.


The remaining days of the trip offer the flexibility to choose cycling or rock climbing or even a trek to the world’s largest cave, Son Doong Cave. Only recently opening to the public, you can be among the first to see this truly massive and otherworldly underground paradise.


This 12-day trip starting from Hanoi is priced from $2560 per person and includes: internal flights, nightly accommodations, most meals and local guide service. See details of this itinerary at
