4 of the most unique adventures you can experience from Hanoi

We may be a little biased but we think Vietnam is one of the best destinations in the world for adventure lovers. From hiking to mountain biking, sandboarding to swimming, you name it and you will probably be able to do it here.

Often, our guests can be on a pretty strict time schedule as they explore from city to city so we get asked quite frequently about what our top recommendations would be if they were to head out of Hanoi. Everyone is different so we decided to put together a list of a few of the adventures we offer here from Nexy…

Experience… Sapa

 

If you haven’t heard of Sapa before, it’s a famous market town in the Northwest of the country which is 1650m above sea level and looks out onto plunging valleys, terraced paddy fields and towering mountains. Heading out on a two-day adventure, you will first get the opportunity to meet Sapa’s local tribes and enjoy welcome drinks while tasting their delicious homemade food before hiking through the rice terraces along Muong Hoa Stream and enjoying the views of Hoang Lien Son mountain ranges from Lao Chai village.
 
After an adventurous trek, you will get the opportunity to sit back and chill out with a beer in Ta Van village as the sun sets on another day. It’s a view you don’t want to forget so be sure to snap some photos with your fellow travellers and make memories to last a lifetime.


Experience… Mai Chau

 

Learning about and experiencing local life in the places you explore is one of the best ways to truly get to know a place, right? Well, if you’re looking to get an insight into the daily local life of rural Vietnam, a trip to Mai Chau is the one for you. With a real emphasis on experiencing village life, you will cycle alongside an expert guide to some of the typical Thai ethnic villages to meet some of the families who live there.  
 
Of course, adventure isn’t far away either in Mai Chau as depending on your level of adventures (and the tour you have chosen to go on), you can choose from a variety of different experiences including cycling around the beautiful valleys, trekking in the Pù Luông Nature Reserve, taking a boat trip on the stunning Song Da Lake and more. So, who’s coming with us?

Experience… Ninh Binh Province

 


Only got a day to spare? Whatever the amount of time, there will always be an adventure in Vietnam to be had. Gather up your fellow travellers from the hostel and head out on our one-day trip to Ninh Binh province where you will be able to tick off some of the most famous tourist sites in the country. From trekking up to Mua Cave Peak for incredible panoramic views to swimming at the Wonderland Bungalow pool, this unique experience is set to be the day trip to beat all day trips. 

 

Experience… Ha Giang

 


Ha Giang is known as being almost totally unaffected by the passing of time. With its untouched scenery and traditional way of life, our Ha Giang experience really is totally unique to anything you will head out on elsewhere in the world.
 
With a local expert guide, you will get the opportunity to visit Lung Tam linen factory to learn about the traditional costume of H’Mong people, stop at Lung Cam village to see traditional H’Mong houses before heading to Vuong villa to get to know more about the story of the H’Mong king.

Be sure to snap a few photos of the stunning Ma Pi Leng mountain-pass as well as the Tu San Canyon and hey, if you’re really loving your time here you can even stay an extra night and head out on a trekking and boat trip experience in Dong Van.
