Mountain Tribes and Markets of North VietnamKenu & Kundo War Canoe Festival
The mountainous Northwest of Vietnam is not only dramatically beautiful, with towering peaks and dramatic tumbling rice terraces, it is also home to a plethora of colourful tribal minority groups that have largely retained their traditional ways of life. This a land for trekking and cultural discovery.
The Kenu and Kundu Canoe Festival is a spectacular event that showcases many of the fascinating cultures of Milne Bay including other participating provinces in Papua New Guinea. It takes place in the charming town of Alotau on the eastern tip of the Papua New Guinea mainland.
The Marovo Lagoon is the largest saltwater lagoon in the world. The waters are calm and the sea-life abundant. Turtles, dolphins, rays and the occasional whale, magnificent coral gardens and prolific tropical and pelagic fish life abound, all surrounded by magnificent beaches and rainforest. Sea kayaking is an ideal way to get back to nature, to discover this stunning environment, while also sampling genuine Pacific Island hospitality and culture whilst staying in Eco-lodges within villages dotted around the lagoon.
In a country that still has little infrastructure except in the main collecting points of Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville, there can be no better way to explore the Jungle Temples than by taking your own accommodation along with you... in style!
