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.

You will spend 11 nights in comfortable hotels, 1-night on a boat with twin share cabins, and 1-night on a sleeper train, with soft-bed berths. The accommodation on this trip is mostly in good quality hotels (mostly 3-4 star), and all nights are en-suite except the train.

During this trip you will spend one night on the sleeper train, this being the best way to travel long distances with the locals. The journey between Hue and Hanoi is quite comfortable although despite being first class, it is still quite basic. You will be in a 4 man cabin, (occasionally 6 depending on season) and bedding is provided, although some travellers prefer to bring their own sleeping sheet. On occasion, passengers of different genders will be required to share a compartment and there will be occasions where you'll be sharing with local people who are not part of your group. Most trains have a dining carriage but people generally stock up on snacks before the journey.

On the boat in Halong Bay, you will stay in en-suite twin cabins. The overnight spot on Whale Island is regarded as an absolute highlight for many, however, it is basic. You will stay in bamboo thatched bungalows each with mosquito nets, fans and en-suite bathrooms. The simplicity of island life and this overnight spot really makes it idyllic but you should be prepared for it to be a bit different to the hotels used for the rest of the trip.

Please be advised that the accommodation listed in each location on the day to day itinerary are the standard hotels used. However, there may be some departures where groups stay at similar hotels of the same standard and quality.

Single supplements are available (on request) and only available for nights spent in hotels during the trip.
