Cycling is a great way to experience Vietnam. First and foremost because the travel pace adapts to one’s own desire and likewise, the experiences seem stronger from the saddle on a 2-wheeler than the passenger seat in a car. On this 16-day tour, we have put together a varied program that combines the major sights with local attractions and rural surroundings. You will thus get spicy sightseeing of Vietnam’s recent history of cycling in the cities, and you will become part of the street crowd on your cycling journey around the planned attractions.
The itinerary takes you to Vietnam’s capital Hanoi and the medium-sized cities of Hoi An and Hue, but between your stays in these capital cities, you must sail and spend the night on a boat in the marvelous sea landscape of Halong Bay, live in beautiful natural surroundings in Ky Son, May Chau and in the Mekong Delta. At these 3 places, the starting point for the experiences is beautiful scenery and insight into the daily lives of the people, and you are accommodated in fine and smaller lodges, where a cozy and yes almost homely atmosphere characterizes these accommodations.
- Bike tours at your pace, as you get around the cities and around the green tropical landscapes.
