When in Vietnam, everyone tell you to take a Halong Bay Cruise. But wwhat are the reasons for that? Because, a Halong Ba cruise is one of a kind. A huge bay, with nearly 2000 mostly uninhabiteed limestone cliff rise vertically from water, the view are breath-taking. Taking a cruise allows you to savor the beauty and tranquility. But finally, its's the activitites you will do on the cruise that will impress you the most - you will get to swim, you will get to go caving, you may get to kayak or go go to visit a fishing village. that is exactly why I suggest you take this cruise. Thruly this is a cruise that is not to be missed. For a great Halong Bay tours.
2. Visit Floating Markets and Islands on Mekong Delta, Vietnam
To see the real Vietnam, go to the floating markets in the Mekong Delta Region, which are the best places to know how people in Vietnam live their lives. Farmers from the region row their boats to the floating markets to sell what they have such as fruits and vegetables. All big boats have a pole hanging with what they sell. In this way, people on small boats know what's on offer from a distance. Smart and interesting, isn't it? On the journey to the floating markets, you can drop by some islands to visit the local workshop and tropical fruits garden, listen to local girls singing loacl songs or sample delicious home-cooked cuisine in a local family.
3. Eco Tour in Hoi An, Vietmam
I especially love the eco tour in Hoi An - and I think you will love too. Sit in a round-shaped bamboo basket boat, let the boatman take you through tranquil waters, get close to the nature, and learn how to cast fishing net from local fishermen. How funny it can be?
4. Crawl through Cu Chi Tunnel, Vietnam
The Cu Chi Tunnel is an immense network of underground tunnel and was once used by Vietnamese soldiers as a hiding spot during the Vietnam War. If you are in Ho Chi Minh City missing the Cu Chi tunnels would be a tragedy. If you're small and agile enough, try to "crawl" through various lengths of the tunnel and take a picture. And you will know how smart the Vietnamese are!
5. Cooking Class in Hoi An, Vietnam
Sampling Vietnamese cuisine is exciting enough, not to mention to cook it hands-on under the guidance of a local chef! In Hoi An, cooking class is very popular and it's totally worth it! First, you will have a guided tour to the markets where the guides talked about the different produces and where they prepare the food. Finally, it's time to cook on your own. And you will get recipes and do enough to be able to recreate delicious food at home yourself.
6. Volunteering at Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai
Here, you will not see an elephant ride or elephant show, what you will see is love and respect for animals. It's where rescued elephants, dogs, cats and many other animals live peacefully and happily. You can choose to be a volunteer in the park, staying for a week, to feed, bath and take care of elephants every day. Through close time spending with them, you will find these giant animals that people used to hold in awe are actually as sweet and nice as angels. If staying for a week is not feasible, them only one day's time spending with these free-roaming elephants and other rescued animals is also sure to bring you an incredible experience.

9. Baloon Ride over Bagan, Myanmar
A ballon ride is not rare, but how about a ride over a landscape dotted with thousands of golden temples - fantastic! Bagan is an unusual place in Myanmar. Originally therewere over 10,000 temples but only 3000 survived and remain intact. The balloon trips have been running in Bagan for over 10 years. The balloons are big enough to see the stupa-filled landscape beneath you. Go for it unless you re extremely scared of height!
