Vietnam’s long coastline and mountainous, jungle interior are ripe for adventure. Popular activities include rock-climbing, kayaking, snorkeling, caving and trekking.

The best spots for boating tours are in Halong Bay, the Cham Islands, and Mui Ne. For snorkeling, head to Phu Quoc Island’s lovely beaches or visit the Cham Islands to see the rainbow reef that grows around this archipelago.

Whether you are a seasoned rock-climber or a climbing novice, you’ll find a provider that will suit your experience.

In Halong Bay and Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park there are rock faces and caves to suit every level and guides will give plenty of safety information and lessons to help you tackle the adventure at hand.

Light layers in breathable materials are your best bet for most national parks in Vietnam. Layers help combat bites from bugs and cooler winds at the top of mountains. Breathable clothing helps with the heat and humidity. Always bring more water than you expect to need, especially when hiking. If you tend to get hungry quickly, snacks are a good idea as restaurants are usually located near park entrances. Make sure to bring mosquito spray, sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.

Vietnam's top activities appeal to history buffs, adventurers, and fun-loving sightseers. Make sure to budget enough time for tours and activities in your chosen destinations.

Hanoi has some of the country’s oldest temples and centers for learning.

Cooking classes are one of the best ways to sample a variety of dishes. Learn to cook delicious Vietnamese food in Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City.
