Vietnam by Bike

Without a doubt cycling is one of the finest ways to discover a country where hospitality comes as second nature. Our complete service includes comfortable geared bikes, a support crew and backup vehicle, and nights spent in well appointed and reliable hotels. This journey will offer a true insight into the local cuisine and friendly culture that will be sure to delight. Leaving Hanoi, where better than spectacular Ninh Binh and Halong Bay to start this amazing adventure, before heading south to Hue. Pedalling at a steady pace we explore an ever-changing landscape of tranquil highlands, palm fringed beaches and country roads that lead through mango and coconut groves. Stopping at wayside tea stalls, the villagers' curiosity often translates into invitations to visit their homes. We also savour the bustling, cosmopolitan café culture of Ho Chi Minh City on this unforgettable adventure.

traveller reviews

IN 1988 I got an itch to adventure travel and so I tracked down World Expeditions for some advice. 4 weeks later I found myself in Kashmir trekking through the Himalayas on what was to be a life changing adventure.

24 years later I got yet another itch to seek out the wonders of Vietnam and through World Expeditions … experienced yet another ‘time of my life’ on a bicycle trek through Vietnam.

W/E provided the expertise, the on ground knowledge and the love in what they do best, to bring 15 strangers together to experience the majesty of the many delights of a beautiful country that is Vietnam. Over 15 days we cycled, sweated, laughed and ate our way from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh city .. and in the process, 15 strangers became 15 friends through a never before never again experience seamlessly staged by the team from WE. The scenery may change but the duty of care from WE is a constant.

Go .. adventure …while you can!!
