Experience the real Vietnam by bike from Saigon to Hanoi on a 14-day cycle adventure. You will ride from vibrant Saigon in the south to the chaotic capital of Hanoi in the north on this two-week cycling tour, travelling on tarmac roads through colorful fishing villages, folding rice terraces and mountains cloaked in jungle. The vast shoreline of white sandy beaches is yours to discover along the way, with time to swim in the sea on a tropical island retreat.

Extra Bike Bits

Recommended Cycling Clothing
Padded cycling shorts (with loose 'over-shorts' where recommended), breathable clothing, and a lightweight waterproof/windproof top. Shoes with relatively stiff soles are better for biking but are not essential unless you are cycling long distances. Most people want to carry certain items with them during the day while cycling, for this we recommend a large bum-bag or small close-fitting daysack.
