Hanoi to Halong Bay by Bike

Beginning in Hanoi with its special French colonial character, we explore towering limestone karst scenery at Ninh Binh by bike and discover at handle bar level this friendly land. Without a doubt cycling is one of the best ways to explore a country and our complete service includes comfortable geared bikes, a support crew and backup vehicle. Pedalling at a steady pace we journey to Halong Bay and discover craggy and jungle-clad Cat Ba, with its many pristine forests before enjoying the tranquillity of Halong Bay aboard our well appointed junk. Here we swim and relax in the turquoise waters of this truly special place. This UNESCO listed area includes 100's of islands with towering limestone pillars all surrounded by turquoise waters. It is these limestone pillars, hewn by years of erosion into fantastic shapes that have inspired centuries of Vietnamese poetry and paintings.
