New heli-ride offers new perspective of Red River


HCM CITY — A helicopter tour launched by a Vietnamese firm allows a unique bird’s-eye view of the Red River Delta.

Northern Helicopter Company, run by Vietnam Helicopter Corporation, has opened its new Red River Heli Tour, granting visitors a rare glimpse of Hà Nội’s water artery.

With numerous tributaries, the Red River Delta encompasses a major agricultural area mainly devoted to rice, and infamous for experiencing violent floods and seasonal fluctuations.

The tour, with the US-made Bell-505 helicopter, will lift off from Gia Lâm airfield 15 minutes from downtown Hà Nội, and cross major attractions including Long Biên Bridge, Nhật Tân Bridge, Cổ Loa Citadel and Bát Tràng pottery village.

The service is available daily, serving tourists from 7am to 5pm for the price of VNĐ3.5 million (US$151) per person. — VNS
