Cycle Vietnam

Map Image

30,000,000 Vietnamese can't be wrong - handle-bar height gives you the best view of Vietnam. Cycling through this beautiful country provides opportunities to meet the local people and experience the local culture in a way that wouldn't be possible otherwise. So come with us and get active as we travel from Hanoi to Saigon, down country lanes and over spectacular mountain passes. And all the exercise gives you the perfect excuse to indulge in delicious Vietnamese cuisine.

Itinerary

Days 1-2 Hanoi

Visit the imposing Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum complex. There’s time afterwards to cycle the Old Quarter - a shopper’s delight.

Days 10-11 Nha Trang

Continue the journey to the coastal resort of Nha Trang. Relax on a boat trip to offshore islands or let the hands of a skilled masseur soothe those tired muscles.

Days 12-13 Dalat

Tackle challenging, winding mountain roads or take it easy and flag down the support vehicle en route to delightful Dalat, located in a region filled with fruit orchards and verdant coffee bean plantations. There’s plenty of time here to explore the surrounding temperate forests, beautiful gardens and gushing waterfalls.

Days 14-15 Ho Chi Minh City

After a final cycling stint through the winding Bao Loc Pass, it’s on to bustling Ho Chi Minh City for a well-deserved celebratory feast of tasty Vietnamese cuisine.

Day 3 Mai Chau

Leave Hanoi behind and head to Luong Son. Here, it’s time to saddle up and let pedal power take over. Cycle past spectacular karst cliffs and admire the lush panorama of the Mai Chau Valley, famed for its breathtaking scenery and friendly hilltribe people, on the way to stunning Cun Pass. Enjoy a homestay in the village of Pom Coong.

Day 4 Cuc Phuong National Park

Ride along rural roads to the ancient rainforests of Cuc Phuong National Park. Meet furry-faced monkeys at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center before falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle.

Day 5 Ninh Binh

Cycle to Ninh Binh, stopping along the way at the ancient citadel of Hoa Lu. Later, board an overnight train to Hue.

Day 6 Hue

Arrive in Hue and hop back into the saddle to see the many tombs, temples, palaces and pagodas packed into this former imperial capital. Hue is famous for its food, so be sure to try local specialities such as ‘banh khoai’, Hue’s answer to the pancake.

Days 7-8 Hoi An

Conquer the long Hai Van Pass and be rewarded with stunning views of the coast on the way to laid-back Hoi An. Rest weary legs or, for those still with energy to burn, perhaps bike to Cua Dai Beach or take a stroll through fields of rice, sesame, banana and peanut plantations. While here, why not have some new clothes made by the talented local tailors?

Day 9 Quy Nhon

Take the road less travelled all the way to the beautiful beach and bay of Quy Nhon.
