| Vietnam north west highlights:
Adventure tours Vietnam, Northern West loop with the major highway No 6 links 6 provinces, stretched along the border with Lao and the border with China. Tens of hill tribe people living here, H'mong, Black Thai, White Thai, Red Dzao, Giay, Lao, Muong and so forth. The wonderful scenery suddenly appear and you are shocked by its beauty. Only for this trip people over 60 years old are not encouraged to join this tour unless you surely prepare good health.
North east highlights:
Northeast Vietnam is a destination most tourists who go to Vietnam do not visit. It is a pity, because sceneries here are fabulous. In some of the places I will show you, tourism is still very scarce.
To get to the Northeast you will have to book a tour. You will find some tours available in most tour agencies in Hanoi. If you come to Vietnam in the summer time (June-August), it won't be difficult for you to find a group tour. If you come here during the off season, you may have to book a private tour. Private tours are more expensive, but they are much better. In my case I went on a private tour, and I really think this is the right way to visit this off the beaten path destination.
