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!
