Southeast Asia by Plane, Train and Sea

In recent years, Buffalo Tours has acquired an exciting array of new assets in the form of our own exclusive transportation services. These include private seaplanes to Halong Bay, a luxury train carriage to Sapa, and private speedboats in Thailand. By offering our own range of unique transportation options, Buffalo Tours can ensure the highest levels of safety, convenience and exclusive experiences for your customers.

Private Seaplane – Halong Bay

A private plane is waiting for you, ready to whisk you off to beautiful Halong Bay for a relaxing cruise of this ancient and mysterious natural wonder. On the way, you will get an impressive aerial view of sprawling Hanoi, the lush green countryside, and finally fly over the scenic Bay of Descending Dragons before landing gracefully next to your luxury junk cruise ship.

No mode of transportation is as symbolic of adventure as the seaplane and no experience is as iconic of oriental mystique as sailing a junk around the exotic karst islands of Halong Bay. After a few days of enjoying the breath-taking scenery, lounging on the sundeck, kayaking and exploring caves, your plane will pick you up and fly you off into the sunset, landing safely back in Hanoi.

Buffalo Tours acquired our own seaplanes under the brand name of Hai Au Aviation, in 2011. This allows us to ensure the highest standards of service and absolute safety for our clients. Travellers are able to conveniently fly directly from Noi Bai International Airport, straight to Halong Bay and back.


Luxury Train Carriage – Sapa

The Victoria Express provides unmatched luxury and comfort. Travelling in a wood-panelled cabin, like a precious jewellery box, drifting past scenes of soothing pastoral simplicity. Gold and emerald rice fields, flooded paddies glistening like mother of pearl; there is simply no better way to connect with the atmosphere and history of Northern Vietnam.

This luxury train to Sapa will transport you back in time, to an era of romance, elegance and charm. Originally a market town used by the local Hmong, Yao and Tay ethnic minorities, Sapa became a French outpost in the late 1880s. Due to the mild climate it quickly developed into a quaint little French-style town, and by the 1930s several private villas had been built, as well as a beautiful stone church.

For many travellers, the train journey from Hanoi to Sapa has always been the most rigorous and inconvenient part of travelling in Northern Vietnam, but with the Victoria Express this is no longer the case. Instead, the journey by train is now an integral part of the experience and an opportunity to immerse yourself in the luxurious style and extravagance of a bygone era.

Speedboat – Phuket

Experience absolute freedom on board a private speedboat, sailing from island to island, stopping by a secluded beach in some uninhabited paradise. The wind in your hair, a drink in your hand and nothing but blue skies, white sands, and turquoise sea.

The islands around Phuket are ideal for day trips, diving, snorkelling and relaxing on the beach. The lush tropical vegetation, coral reefs, and the rich marine life makes this an absolute favourite destination for many.

In the summer of 2016, Buffalo Tours acquired our own speedboats in Phuket. This was done in order to ensure that we can provide the very best in terms of reliability and flexibility, giving our guests the highest standards of service.
