The Buffalo Run

buffalo-run

We love Vietnam and want you to love it too. That’s why we designed our Buffalo Run tours – to get you off the beaten path, to introduce you to our favorite spots, to help you interact with real people and to have amazing cultural experiences.

Most of all, we designed the Buffalo Runs to be a social experience. Sure, you could make your own way down Vietnam’s well-trod banana pancake trail. Or you could travel with us, a few new friends, and an expert local guide who will ensure a healthy balance of culture, action and of course a bit of a party.

THE ORIGINAL CASTAWAYS ISLAND, HALONG BAY

Over the years, several imitators have popped up, but we are the original and still the best. See why.

Enjoy one of the world’s greatest attractions, Halong Bay, by day. Cruise and kayak the dramatic karst rock formations. Enjoy high-speed tubing, wakeboarding and rock climbing all included within the price.

Then, after your evening feast, party with a level of abandonment that can only be reached on a private island paradise in the stunning middle of nowhere.
