1. Racing Go-kart in Hanoi

Ever dreamt of being a race car driver? In Hanoi, you can make that dream a reality! Get your adrenaline pumping with a thrilling go-karting experience.

Go-kart is a type of racing car with a lightweight body and powered by a two-stroke engine. As Hanoi was building the F1 racing circuit, many youngsters developed a fascination for go-kart racing. This is because of the similarity between go-kart racing and the F1 race. For around 200.000 - 300.000 VND, you can drive the Go-Kart for 15-20 minutes.

Here are a few places that you can check out:

  • Hanoi Super Karting: Yen So Gamuda Park.

  • Go Kart Hanoi: AEON Mall Ha Dong’s car park.

  • VS-Racing Vincom Mega Mall Smart City.

Newbies, no need to worry. Before hitting the track, you will receive instructions. These tracks meet quality standards and they also provide full protective gear for safety.

If you are on a Vietnam family tour, it is even greater! Zip around the track, feel the wind in your hair, and see if you can be the fastest in your family.

2. Trekking through the villages of White Thai Minorities

Trekking in Mai Chau is the best way to discover Vietnam’s rural hamlets and to experience the rich ethnic culture. Imagine this: Hike through lush rice fields and small canals, soaking up the beauty of the Vietnamese countryside. Moreover, you can explore the traditional stilt houses of the White Thai minorities. They are super friendly and welcoming people.

Some trekking trails that you can explore:

  • Pom Coong village to Mai Hich village (about 12,9km)

  • Mai Hich village to Ban Buon village (about 9.1km)

You might even get to see a local noodle factory in action and learn how local people made those yummy rice noodles!

The climate of Mai Chau is tropical monsoon like the other places in Northern Vietnam. We recommend you take a hike from late September to early May. The best weather is here, ranging from range from 15℃ to 30℃. The best time to enjoy a Vietnam customized tour.

3. Rowing stand-up paddle board in Saigon

Can you believe in the middle of the modern city of Saigon, you can row stand-up paddleboarding!?

Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP for short) is a sport that involves standing on a large, inflatable surfboard-like plank and paddling through the water. It is common to catch large groups of young people exploring the city’s waterways on SUP. The affordable cost explains why it is so popular. Only with 300,000 VND - 600,000 VND, you can get guidance and glide across the calm water by yourself.

Add this activity to your bucket list, maybe you can even spot a few interesting birds!

4. Riding coconut boats in Hoi An

You may know about Hoi An Ancient Town but another unique experience is calling all adventurers. Riding a coconut boat!

Taking a basketboat tour through the coconut forest is a truly romantic and tranquil experience. You will witness white ducks frolicking in the water and fishermen casting their nets. As you float along the Thu Bon River, local guides will share the historical stories.

One of the main attractions on a Hoi An basket boat ride is undoubtedly the "boat dancing" with the local fishermen. They will spin the round basket boats in dizzying circles, making you feel like you are on an amusement park ride.

5. Cruising along Cai Rang floating market and tasting Gordon Ramsay's recommendation

The Mekong Delta is a maze of rivers and canals, making it a perfect place for a boat trip. In Can Tho, you can explore the famous Cai Rang floating market. See hundreds of boats piled high with fresh fruit, vegetables, and all sorts of delicious goodies. This bustling market offers a glimpse into a unique way of life and is a photographer's dream.

Don't forget to try Hu tieu – Gordon Ramsay even raved about it! He said he had never eaten a noodle dish like Hu Tieu, even though it is the most common dish in almost every market in the Mekong River.

For a truly immersive experience, consider extending your adventure to the nearby Phong Dien Floating Market. You won’t be disappointed.

Bonus: Traveling with family? Vietnam is heaven for family adventures! Explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Ha Long Bay (or Halong Bay), and relax on pristine beaches in Phu Quoc, or Da Nang.

So there you have it! These are just a few of the many amazing things you can do in Vietnam. If this is your first time coming to this beautiful country, we highly recommend a customized Vietnam tour with a tour guide. They will make sure you have the best trip ever.

Ditch the stress, book your tickets, and get ready for an unforgettable adventure!
