In sleepy villages, children pedal alongside you, three or four to a bike. From soaring heights, vistas of green hills and azure seas spread before you. In bustling cities, French colonial splendor and ancient pagodas stand side by side. And amidst the most rural reaches, rice paddies and water-coconut palm forests point the way to welcoming communities, where you’re invited to share in a fresh bounty. This is a VBT Vietnam bike tour, and you’re sure to never forget it.
To explore Vietnam on a VBT bike trip is to fall under the spell of some of the world’s most enchanting cycling routes. Follow the Perfume River past houseboats crowned with reverential shrines, pausing in villages where duck and fish farms thrive. Make a thrilling ascent to the “Pass of the Ocean Clouds,” where panoramas from 1,600-feet reward your climb. Reel among the grapefruit and papaya groves of the lush Mekong Delta.
Along the way, immerse yourself in the rich and varied history of Vietnam’s cities. Among the tree-lined boulevards of Hanoi, nibbling a Parisian-style croissant and riding a cyclo-rickshaw in the Old Quarter adds a Euro-Asian flair to your discoveries. And Vietnam’s dynasties of old whisper amid the splendor of Hue’s ancient Imperial City and the remarkably preserved lanes of Hoi An’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Your VBT Trip Leaders connect you with local traditions in the most meaningful ways: Peruse the colorful offerings of an open-air market … delight to the intricacies of a traditional water puppet show … visit the family temples and gardens of an ecological village … all simply because you’re on a VBT bike tour.
Each day, you’ll feast on the freshest, most mouth-watering fare in this land of famously delicious food. Indulge in luxury accommodations that reflect Vietnam’s diverse landscapes, from a beachside boutique hotel in Hoi An to lovely villas nestled in a palm forest. Simply put, you’ll experience all the nuance and personality of Vietnam’s rich cultures, from cosmopolitan cities to tiny villages, up close and face to face, in a way no one else can show them to you.
