2009 Cycling Vietnam:19 day Vietnam Tour

2009 Cycling Vietnam - 19 days

Stop for the perfect photo as you cycle down backstreet lanes

There is no better way to truly get to know Vietnam than on two wheels. You don’t have to be a champion cyclist – you will have the help of your Western tour leader and local guide, cycling mechanic and support vehicle along the way. We travel from north to south, covering the highlights and some extra special experiences – like an overnight stay on Halong Bay aboard a private junk, a chance to cycle the spectacular coastal roads between Hoi An and Nha Trang, and a rural homestay in the Mekong Delta. Ride as much, or as little, as you want.

Hanoi, Halong bay, Hue, Hoi An, Quy Nhon, Nha Trang, Dalat, Saigon, Mekong.

Trip grading:  ADVENTUROUS Suitable for travellers with a good level of fitness, full and independent mobility; a keen sense of adventure is essential. Prepare for some long road journeys, basic accommodation in remote areas and a lot of walking. Cycling components are leisurely two to four hour rides and our support vehicle is always on hand when you’d like to sit out.

What's included: 15 nights hotel accommodation, 1 overnight train (soft sleeper four-berth shared cabin), 1 overnight homestay and 1 overnight boat, all road transport by air-conditioned vehicles, use of mountain bikes and support vehicle from Hue to Saigon, all sightseeing as specified (excluding entrance fees), Western tour leader, local English-speaking guides throughout, arrival and departure transfers, breakfast daily, 3 lunches and 2 dinners. *This journey requires a minimum of seven travellers to operate. *Helmets are not included and we recommend you bring your own, as helmets produced in this region do not meet international safety and quality standards.

Tour Leader: Travel Indochina tour leader based on a minimum of 7 people.

Maximum group size: 15 

     

Not Ready to go Home Yet?: We can’t think of a better way to end a cycling trip than spending a few days on a tropical island, enjoying massages, fresh seafood and long walks on the beach. La Veranda Resort on Phu Quoc Island is the ideal spot, and just a short flight from 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

Responsible Travel: When you stay with a local family in the Mekong Delta, you will be sharing both cultural insights and tourism revenue with your hospitable hosts.
