Asia’s Top Location for Kite Surfing is Vietnam

September 3, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

We can definitely say that Vietnam is an outdoor adventure destination. Trekking in Sapa and kayaking and rock climbing in Ha Long Bay are some of the most popular outdoor activities that guests can experience when they come to Vietnam. Sapa is the mountainous area northwest of Hanoi that offers outdoor enthusiasts a mix of adventure, outstanding scenery and community-based ecotourism. Your travelers interested in rock climbing will be reassured to know that the climbing outfitters use the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA) standards for harnesses, shoes and helmets. Feel safe and secure to scale a limestone cliff and enjoy the view of the emerald green water below.

Lately, Dalat (Da Lat) and Mui Ne have come on the scene with some of the most adventurous and coolest activities in Vietnam. Da Lat, the city of eternal spring, offers mountain biking with fantastic views throughout the ride and a great sampling of terrain such as lakes, pine forest, small country farms and a remote minority village. Hiking in Da Lat means beautiful vistas yet challenging hiking in the area of the deepest jungle of Vietnam. Walking quietly through the vines and foliage is a great opportunity to spot wildlife such as Da Lat’s famous birds or a troop of monkeys that live in this area.

For surfers and beach lovers, Mui Ne is becoming not only the capital of kite surfing in Vietnam, but also in Asia. People from everywhere in the world come to Mui Ne to try its waves. The winds are good, the water temperatures are pleasantly warm and the tidal zone has no reefs or rocky hazards. The area is suitable for beginners to the advanced. Within a day, guests take a chance out in the waves to learn the basics and start to ride standing up on the board.
