Description

Summary: This classic bicycle exploration of Vietnam, starts in the Hanoi Capital and ends in the Ho Chi Minh City in the south of Vietnam. Along the way we pause to visit the main sites in Halong Bay, Hoa Binh, Hoi An, Hue, and finally Ho Chi Minh City. What makes this tour special is our route hardly touches the frenetic Highway One, as we ride along quiet or little used roads to discover the real Vietnam.
Taking time out of the saddle we have excursions by boat in Halong, Hue and on Mekong river as well as interesting rides to Cu Chi Tunnels. After cycling through the incredible limestone karst scenery of Hoa Binh and boating in Halong Bay we spend a night aboard the Reunification Express Train to Hue then passing the Hai Van pass to Hoi An, an old commercial town from the 17th century. On reaching Ho Chi Minh City, we have time to ride to the Mekong delta and homestay to experience the local life.
 
Tour Type: Land tour + well selected hotel + domestic flights/trains, private guided with your own English speaking guide ( unless otherwise specified), your own driver at your own pace and schedule.
