We believe that seeing somewhere from a bike is the absolute best way of doing it and this is certainly true in Vietnam, perhaps more so than any other country in Asia. During this stunning cycling holiday, you will explore Vietnam’s finest backroads, interacting with local children cycling to school, smelling delicious wafts of street food cooking, seeing stunning scenery and feeling the incredibly varied Vietnamese weather on your skin.
Your journey will begin in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon. The city has managed to retain a lot of its historic charms while evolving in to a bustling modern metropolis. From here you will head north to the Cu Chi tunnels where you'll get a real insight into the Vietnam war from a local perspective. Next, it’s off to the stunning coastline at Miu Ne where you can enjoy a swim and a fantastic sunset across the South China Sea. From the coast, head inland to the former French colonial hill station of Dalat and then descend all the way to Nha Trang - famed for its 6km beach, crystal clear water and fantastic seafood.
From Nha Trang the route follows the coast north, riding through tiny villages, past rice paddies and well away from the tourist trail, before heading on to the UNESCO world heritage site of Hoi An. From here, travel to Hue where you will spend a couple of days exploring this fantastic area, before boarding a sleeper train to your final destination - Hanoi. You’ll spend a day in Hanoi exploring this fascinating city, taking in the sights and the sounds, before flying home at the end of the holiday.
It's nearly 1800 kms from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, so in order to fit in the best bits of cycling and to miss out some of the busier urban sections, this cycling holiday in Vietnam uses transfers to get you out of the cities and onto the quieter backroads. Don't let this put you off however - it just means you can save your energy for the great riding that can be found off the beaten track.
This holiday is ideal for a leisure cyclist with a good level of physical fitness. The cycling distances are between 20km – 100km per day on varying terrain, with some steep climbs occasionally included.
