TOUR SUMMARY

This classic cycle exploration of Vietnam, starts in Hanoi Capital and ends in the Hochiminh city in the south of Vietnam . Along the way we pause to visit the main sites in Halong Bay , HoaBinh, Hoi An, Hue, and finally Hochiminh city. What makes this tour special is our route hardly touches the frenetic Highway One, as we ride along quiet or little used roads to discover the real Vietnam.

Taking time out of the saddle we have excursions by boat in Halong, Hue and on Mekong river as well as interesting rides to Cu Chi Tunnels. After cycling through the incredible limestone karst scenery of HoaBinh and Halong bay. We spend a night aboard the Reunification Express Train to Hue then passing the HaiVan pass to Hoian Old commercial town from 17century. On reaching Hochiminh city, we have time to ride to Mekong delta and overnight in Vietnamese homes and try to be the vietnamese one time.
