Vietnam Tours for adventurers

Tours for adventurers

Ben Thanh Tourist is putting on adventure tours, including climbing, rappelling and cable crossing, for tourists who like to experience something different.

Joining the new tours, tourists will also have the opportunity to challenge themselves, build self-confidence and discover their own abilities.

Ben Thanh Tourist is cooperating with Hong Kong-based ASCO, which has experience in organizing such tours as climbing, abseiling and cable crossing, to create its own unique tours.

Paying just VND 500,000 per person, adventurers who are getting bored with normal tours will be taken to the Buu Long Park surrounded by mountains in Bien Hoa City in the southern province of Dong Nai.

After arriving in Bien Hoa from Ho Chi Minh City, tourists will trek around the park, and then set up their own tents. Tour guides will lead them to a rock climbing site for a prompt training session. Learning how to conquer mountains and set up your own tents is part of the adventure tours.

The training session will allow tourists to master the basic climbing techniques.

After the first climbing, tourists will move from one mountain to another by cable and zip line. Going between mountains by cable is interesting but frightening indeed.

Every tourist will be equipped with a helmet, gloves and other safety equipment.

Climbing is an activity that requires cleverness and decisive action in line with instructions given by experienced guides. Many travellers are a bit nervous when they begin, but once they climb up the first couple of steps they will gain confidence.
