However, you’ll need an hour or more with a coach to practice the sports before doing it for real. But when you’re ready, show the world your awesome stunts. The cost might be a little expensive from VND 800,000 - VND 1,200,000.

Kayaking: Kayaking in Ha Long Bay is a much more gentle experience but still one of the must-try extreme sports in Vietnam. Use the paddles to take your kayak anywhere you want. Because the water is still, you don’t need to be experienced to paddle. You can paddle and surf through the pristine water to explore the mysterious caves and take the most panoramic photos along the way.

As one of the ancient cities in Vietnam, Hue is the most unlikely yet the most thrilling place to try extreme sports in Vietnam, namely Zipline and Highwire.

Highwire: With the cable system above the wildest forests, Zipline is sure to sweep you off your feet. In this sport, you’ll have to overcome your fear to conquer the obstacles along the way with a height of 6 meters. There are 3 courses you can choose from such as the Discovery course and the Adventure course. The Discovery course is suitable for a family trip and the height is only 1,1 meters. However, with the Adventure course, you need to bring your A-game to get to the finish line with many tough challenges such as walking on wooden planks, crossing the net-bridge, keeping balance on wooden blocks and bridges. So where is the extreme? Yes, you’ll be doing this up to 6 meters above the ground and there’s no going back.

Zipline: Ever want to be Tarzan swinging from one tree to another in the jungle? Well, this sport is even cooler than that. You’ll start on the top of the mountain, sliding down with the cable wire with a dizzy height. Dangling in the air, you’ll witness the beauty of mountains and forests here with the bird’s eye view. The ticket for these two extreme sports in Vietnam costs only about VND 120,000 - VND 180,000 per person.
