Halong Bay, Vietnam

So, ok, I know what you are thinking, and no, travel tours aren’t
just for old ladies on big buses anymore. The truth is travel tours
have come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and
old ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the
independent, adventure traveler.

That’s right—active, interesting and
adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a
foreign place. The groups are kept small, usually capping out at 16
people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly huge group
of gawking tourists. You’ll be taking in the beautiful vistas of Ha
Long Bay, boating on jungled rivers, and visiting amazing beaches and
quaint fishing villages—these tours don’t just scratch the surface of
the places you visit. In fact, by using a combination of local and
experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than you would
on your own. The local guides know the best places to take you and best
foods for you to try. Oh, and don’t worry, you definitely won’t be
experiencing Vietnam from the window of some bus the entire time. Even
the shorter Vietnam adventure tours have travelers moving about on
boats, by train, on foot, and local wheeled taxis called cyclos.
Between visiting important temples and historical sights, eating the
delicious local cuisine, wading past rice paddies and seeing some of
the world’s most beautiful scenery, you won’t be sorry you booked one
of these three great adventure tours.
