Cycling Vietnam is a truly rewarding way to view its landscapes and interact with its many peoples. With such a diversity of terrain and cultural nuances, the range of experiences to combine with the revolving of your pedals provide for a depth of experience and awareness simply unobtainable with other forms of transport.

Cycling the valleys of the northern highlands, whilst obviously a little on the strenuous side, amply rewards your efforts with superb remote mountain vistas, resplendent with the characteristically colourful shapely swirls of rice paddies carved artistically into the hillsides. You will also be able to enjoy relaxed and friendly encounters with the many and various charming ethnic groups of Vietnam going about their daily chores.

Likewise, cycling the Central Highlands involves some challenging slopes and rewarding ethnic encounters, though the landscape and local character is very different from that found in the north. Here, you can cycle through the lush vegetation of Pu Luong Nature Reserve and Cuc Phuong National Park, and enjoy the opportunity to experience some of the wonderful wildlife to be observed in these areas.

By contrast, cycling the central coast of Vietnam offers an unrivalled experience of the surrounding countryside lanes of its main attractions, such as Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang and Mui Ne, visiting its beaches and historic sights all along the way.
