2008 Cycling Vietnam - 19 days

Stop for the perfect photo as you cycle down backstreet lanes

Get to know Vietnam intimately when you discover the country on two-wheels, the method employed by the vast majority of Vietnamese! But there's no need to be Lance Armstrong in order to jump on your bike and hit the street – you will have the help of your Western tour leader, local guide, cycling mechanic and support vehicle along the way. Ride as much, or as little, as you want while you explore the best the country has to offer.

Hanoi, Halong Bay, Reunification Express, Hue, Hoi An, Quy Nhon, Nha Trang, Dalat, Cu Chi Tunnels, Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)

Ask our Travellers: "Cycling Vietnam definitely exceeded all expectations. We felt like one happy family, and were sorry when the time came to go home. When cycling in the country all the children lined the street and everyone would sing out “hello” to us."T. Wallace - Australia
