 Overview:

Between the contrasting cosmopolitan cities of Saigon and Hanoi, Vietnam boasts spectacular beaches, forest dappled mountains and a wealth of modern and ancient history.

 Our cycling adventure begins in the vibrant city of Saigon, better known as Ho Chi Minh City.

Despite the vibrant bustle, Saigon's timeless temples sit peacefully amongst modern architecture and traditional street vendors.

Heading out of the city we visit the famous ‘Cu-Chi Tunnels', where the North Vietnam Army resided in a subterranean world, tormenting their enemies for many years.

The following day we take a short domestic flight to the charming hill town of Dalat. Over the next two days we seek out quiet country lanes and tackle the Hon Giao Pass (2062m) before enjoying a rest day on the soft sands of Nha Trang Bay, famous for its junk boat journeys. Combining a balance of private vehicle transfers and cycling, we continue northwards as we ride through friendly Viet villages and take in stunning coastal views.

The ancient UNESCO trading port of Hoi-An, with its delicious cuisine and colourful market vendors, is worthy of a two night stopover and a visit to the nearby My-Son Cham ruins. With our cycling legs in good shape, we ride onwards to the historic Nguyen Dynasty town of Hue via the sensational Hai Van Pass and explore the banks of the Perfume River.

An overnight train transports us North, where we intermingle boat and bicycles to experience the best of the North. Cycling across Cat-Ba Island is followed by an unforgettable day of cruising as we discover the limestone pinnacles of the UNESCO listed Halong Bay.

With our last night in sophisticated Hanoi, provides a show stopping finale to this Vietnamese cycling adventure.

“Vietnam & Cambodia” A small group of 8 of us cycled for 12days through the Mekong Delta to Siem Reap for charity, with Joe as our guide. We all had a amazing time thanks to Joe and once in Cambodia the Cambodian team - Sim & Handsome. Thank you for making it a memorable experience. Visited. Nov.2016

The real Vietnam experience I have used Countryside Adventures twice and also travelled in Vietnam on my own. I have to say that what you can experience with Countryside Adventures is very difficult to get on your own. Cycling through back road in remote villages, experiencing real life of local people, local food was great. And Joe, Thai and the rest of the team are just amazing, you can rely on them for everything and you always feel in a safe pair of hands. They travelled with my group for 12 days, guiding us from Saigon to Hue once and from Saigon to Angkor Wat another time, I feel very grateful for this opportunity. Highly reccomended!
