Vietnam. Just the name of this Southeast Asian pearl conjures up images of awe inspiring beauty. From the coral islands of Halong Bay to the French influence in Dalat and Hoi An or the simplicity of a villager under a traditional conical hat tilling the rice fields, there are astounding sights around every corner. This is a nation dedicated to traveling by two wheels, so by cycling this magical land you are opening the doors to every single one of these experiences on this adventure of a lifetime.

Given how popular the bicycle is it will come as little surprise that you will be sharing the road with many companions in Vietnam, so much so that you may find yourself struggling to keep up with all the smiles, waving and people saying ‘hello’ throughout your trip. With such a fascinating and tragic history it is important to take the time to delve into Vietnam’s past and so you'll begin the tour by taking a gentle ride out of Saigon to visit the famous Cu Chi tunnels used by the Viet Cong in the war.

You'll soon escape bustling Saigon for the quiet of Dalat via a brief flight and this is where your riding experience really cranks up a gear. Pointing the bikes north to Hanoi is the eventual target but the path ahead holds so many special experiences.

Having lapped up Dalat’s cool mountain air you'll take countryside roads descending down into the beach resort of Nha Trang. The transitions are swift but you'll still be able to take things at a leisurely pace and rest in the likes of Hoi An and Halong Bay. There will be a majestic boat cruise on the last day around the archipelagos which makes this one of the wonders of the world.

It is important that you grasp the magnitude and sheer beauty of this country and that’s why there will be experienced locals to guide you and offer all the best insights. Additionally, cycling on the highway is avoided so that you can delve into the back roads and get a raw view of what Vietnam is really like.
