Capture an unforgettable snapshot of Vietnam’s shoreline with a tour of the Central Coast. Cycle iconic sandy-white beaches framed by coconut palms, with the sails of junks and sampans floating on the emerald-green horizon of the South China Sea. The narrowest section of this unconditionally friendly country holds an incredible number of sights to feast your eyes on, making the ride worth all the effort involved.
Tackle the twists and turns of the Hai Van Pass and reward yourself with a view of the Marble Mountains, a haunting spot created by a cluster of five elemental rocks. Bike past the paddy fields of Hoi An to encounter scenes of Vietnamese rural life. You will surely witness planting and harvesting techniques passed down through generations, some nearly as old as the Truong Son peaks of the area flowing down into the sea.
Remote, scenic back roads snake through tribal and Viet villages before throwing you out onto the Hon Gom peninsular road. Here, the dazzling shore is broken up by wild sand dunes and beautiful rocky promontories jutting out into the water. Afterwards, get away from it all to unwind and enjoy the seclusion of Whale Island for a well-deserved rest at journey’s end.
