5. Motorbiking, Ho Chi Minh City, VietnamHo Chi Minh City
is famous for street food, bargain shopping and chaotic traffic. Motorbikes swarm like angry hornets, vying for space and jostling to squeeze through gaps in the congestion. Biking in this urban jungle is stressful to say the least and at worst, deadly. So keen motorcyclists should head for the highway between Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi instead, for memorable scenery and an open road without exhaust fumes clouding the horizon.
6. Digging into Sichuan food, China
Powerful combinations of garlic, chilli and Sichuan peppers make this cuisine
quite possibly the boldest and most pungent of chows. Originating in the South Western province of Sichuan
and today available widely across China, its fiery flavour will quite literally knock your socks off. When dining out, we advise to taste tentatively, thus avoiding unappealing chilli sweats and the unmentionable after effects.
