Itinerary Details

Plan for the day

You will be picked up from your Hanoi hotel at 8:30 AM and take a short transfer to the bike garage where you can finally hop on the bikes and head down hidden back alleys to see where the real Hanoi lives. After winding your way through you will leave the concrete of the city behind to open farmland along the banks of the Hoang Giang River. You will visit a broom making village as you head towards Co Loa, an ancient spiral-shaped citadel that dates back to the third century BC.

After riding around the citadel and a stop at An Duong Vuong King Temple you'll have a break for a local lunch. Next, you will cycle on top of the dyke along the Red River, named for the reddish-brown heavily silt-laden water, where you will see where two great rivers meet. Ride along the water's edge to one of the most important places of worship in Hanoi, Tay Ho temple, where you can learn about the legend of the golden buffalo calf. You’ll pedal on through quiet back streets, admiring the colonial architecture, before transferring back to your Hanoi hotel around 3:00 PM.

To make sure you don’t miss an important cultural event, this itinerary may be adjusted if there is a festival or other special activity nearby.
