Charity cycle through Vietnam for the kids

Looking for a holiday with a difference? A holiday that actually means something? Join this charity bike ride through Vietnam for Variety!

Adventurous travellers can support Variety – The Children’s Charity by signing up for a unique holiday experience to Vietnam with actor Shane Cortese in April 2011.

The Variety Cycle Vietnam trip is an exciting challenge over the 13 day tour departing Auckland on 2 April 2011. It includes five days of cycling covering 350kms, a visit to a school and orphanage, and sight-seeing in Hanoi’s vibrant streets, the beaches of Nha Trang and the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City.

“This is a first for Variety – The Children’s Charity and we are so thrilled to help them accomplish their goal to raise funds for their ‘Bikes for Kids’ programme. We have more than 35 years experience in organising adventure itineraries and jumped at the chance to help Variety,” explains Tali Emdin, NZ General Manager for World Expeditions.

“The trend we are seeing in travel today is for people to give something back while having an amazing experience. This type of travel is on the top of most people’s lists whether donating to a cause they believe in or actually going to a destination for a Community Project.”

Only eight places remain with the total group of travellers being 25. The ticket price of $4890 per person includes return airfares from Auckland with Singapore Airlines, twin-share accommodation, comfortable geared bikes, support crew and back-up vehicle, private transport when not cycling, expert bilingual guide, most meals and a $500 donation to Variety. And, the special added bonus to cycle around Vietnam with Outrageous Fortune’s Hayden, aka Shane Cortese!
