[ more Top-10 Lists ]

This list is our own personal top list based on what we have seen and experienced in our travels. There have been so many good ones that we could not limit this list to just 10. We have included all the different ones that we can think of.

Transport Mode

Inner Tube

Tubing along the river in Vang Vieng, Laos is the best way to go. The weather is warm, the beer cold, and everyone is having a great time. [Update: probably not a great idea, a risky idea with too many injuries]

2. Riding on the back of a truck in Guatemala


Riding an elephant in Laos. We were taken through the jungle to a river, and then the elephant thought it would be fun to tip us off into the water. Maybe not totally safe, but heaps of fun.
