travellers are accustomed to traditional vacations, but recently a new kind of travel has been rapidly expanding. Adventure travel is popping up all over Vietnam, and there are many opportunities for young people who are interested in these exciting activities. Adventure touring is a new hot trend, which can provide a unique perspective on a destination.

During this 4-day-holiday, Thao and her friends left the busy city to join in an adventure tour in Bach Moc Luong Tu mountain in the mountainous province of Lao Cai. Thao started joining tours like this about 2 years ago.

Adventure tours are currently attracting a lot of young people. Their destinations are often in the mountainous region's waterfalls where the terrain creates challenges for those who like to discover and experience new things. An adventurous vacation gives them the chance to live in nature as well as to test and overcome their limits.

This kind of tourism is still new in Vietnam and adventure tours still lack management. That's why local travel agents have to set up their own regulations to ensure safety for tourists.

Due to uncontrolled management, a number of accidents have occurred. To ensure their own safety, before joining an adventure tour, visitors should research about the travel agents to see whether they have a license for organizing such tours or not. Visitors should always equip themselves with some skills and learn more about the places that they're going to. With numerous exotic destinations available to visit, this trend of adventure touring is going to continue to take up a large share of the tourism industry.
