More About This Experience

Seeing that our Fear Factor Challenge in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap have been sniffed out by travelers as an alternative and fun way to experience a tiny bit of Cambodian culture, our team in Hanoi have been inspired. And as a result, we are introducing the Hanoian chapter of the fear factor challenge that's worthy of its Cambodian counterpart :) The Hanoi fear factor challenge introduces a whole new set of fear inducing food that has completely toppled over the food chain, defying the "natural order' of things in a way that is both absurd and exciting. The tour will take you right through Hanoi to all the local hideaways that serve up some of the most bizarre food. Expect to sample the famous duck fetus, wrestle with "muscular' crickets and devour live worms. The tour will be entirely customized to your preferences and threshold for the bizarre. But nevertheless, it is advisable to bring a lot of culinary prowess ;) The fear factor experience, as scary as it might sound, is a activity for everyone. Individuals, couples and families have all seen themselves through backstreet's fear factor challenge and all we can say is, we've had as much fun hosting them as they did experiencing it!

Additional Information:

  • Pick-up location: Exact pick-up location address along with map direction will be sent to your email instantly after booking
  • Be at the pick up location at the tour start time
  • You also have the option to be picked up. Simply select this option from the add-on section
  • Camera to capture those absolute fear inducing yet fun moments!

I highly recommend this tour! I was the only person on the tour but I still had a fantastic time. There was a great range of weird food to try which definitely did a good job of putting me out of my comfort zone. I wasn't sure about doing this tour but it exceeded my expectations. Really glad I did ... Read more

This was a really alternative experience and was so glad that that I did it. Realised what I could and couldn't eat, and MT really went out of her way to make sure the places she selected prepared the food properly. I was extremely impressed!

My brother kinda pushed me into this activity but I came out of the whole experience quite pleased with myself actually. :) Didn't have the heart to try the dog meat but the bugs went in easier than I thought. This is definitely a side of Hanoi that a traveler wouldn't normally dare venture on their... Read more
