The city of Xian, among the great capitals of China’s long history, is home to numerous attractions, perhaps most famously the Terracotta Warriors. An entire army of some 8,000 life-like clay soldiers created with individual expressions and details to stand guard for China’s first emperor, were left buried for over two millennia before being discovered by local farmers in the 1970s. Zhao Kangmin, the archaeologist who first recognized the importance and scale of the discovery, recently passed away at age 82. Today, the Terracotta Warriors can be viewed in a massive museum complex, and even after decades of study, have only been partially excavated. The emperor’s guard still holds many secrets. Contact Haivenu about visiting this amazing site.

Vietnam’s capital city Hanoi is now offering, on a trial basis, double-decker open-top bus tours around the central Old Quarter. This has us thinking about getting around - so much of a journey is spent in motion, yet it is easy to forget that getting around can be an integral part of the experience, not simply a way to go from A to B. 

Here’s a question for you - what mode of transport do you prefer to best enjoy the trip, not only the destination? You can now explore Hanoi’s Old Quarter (and many other places) by: foot, bicycle, cyclo, xe om (motorcycle taxi), guided Vespa tours, electric car (glorified golf cart) tours, taxi, and now double-decker bus! 

Of course, any tour with Haivenu includes all necessary transport with late-model air-conditioned professionally driven vehicles, but it is worth thinking about some other options to best experience your destination. Here’s a tour focused on giving you the full range of local transport experiences!

Laos’ former royal capital and current UNESCO World Heritage city Luang Prabang is set to be the base for the country’s first luxury helicopter tours. Recent inaugural flights featured views of Kuang Si Waterfall, Mount Phousi, the convergence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, and the old town of Luang Prabang itself. With plans in place to establish the first helicopter tour terminal in Luang Prabang, projected expansion will bring the service to the capital city Vientiane and Pakse in Southern Laos. Heli-tours are expected to include temples, cultural sites and short city tours, as well as customized flights such as viewing inaccessible jungle waterfalls or made-to-order themed tours. Contact us for details about when you will be able to arrange this new experience in Laos.
