The two forms of rowing which enable rowers to enjoy beautiful landscapes—including kayak (sitting rowers) and SUP (stand up paddleboard, standing rowers)—may be perfect combinations of sport and travel. The author of this article followed rowing clubs to experience those trips on rivers and lakes in Vietnam’s northern provinces, such as the Quay Son River in Cao Bang, the Nho Que River in Ha Giang, the Ba Be Lake in Bac Kan, the Na Hang Lake in Tuyen Quang, etc.
These trips may be suitable for rowers who want to enjoy the cool summer breeze and beautiful landscapes at the same time.
These rowing occasions also help diversify tourism products and honor the natural beauty of Vietnam.
