See a variety of small towns and cities, many of which were ravaged by the recent war. Enjoy a cultural, culinary, historical and definitely active adventure.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Saigon

Put on your biking gear and get ready for an active day! Your driver will take you northwest to the Cu Chi District. From there, you will begin cycling until you reach the Cu Chi tunnels. Walk through the tunnels and learn about the passageways’ history. Imagine during the Vietnam war when soldiers fought and lived in dark, narrow alleys. After your tour, enjoy hot green tea beneath the forests’ shade. Bike to Ho Chi Minh city. Pay a visit to Hoc Mon before retiring to your hotel, The Reverie.

DAY 2: Ben Tre

After breakfast in your hotel, take a car to Can Giuoc town. From here, you will begin your 38-mile ride. Explore the area, and visit the beautiful Vinh Trang Pagoda. Spend the evening in Ben Tre Town - where the Vietnam War began. The town is where the first large scale military action occurred. 

DAY 3: Tra Vinh

Take a short, scenic boat ride down the Ham Luong River. Chat with the locals before beginning your 18.5-mile ride for the day. See the Cho Lach District, a rural area just outside Ben Tre, from your bike. Peruse through the Cho Thom Market for a break. Take a private boat to Tra Vinh. Cycle to your resting place for the evening - the Hotel Palace. The hotel is in classic Vietnamese style - set in a courtyard, with high ceilings and private balconies.

DAY 4: Can Tho

Today’s ride is 45-miles long. Cycle to the Khmer village near Tra Vinh town to visit the stunning Hang Pagoda. This translates directly to “cave pagoda.” Gaze over Ba Om Lake before you continue to the Vinh Long Province. Continue along to the town of Can Tho and stay at the Azerai.

DAY 5: Saigon

It’s another 38-mile biking day. Travel towards Saigon and stop to visit the famous, historic house of Marguerite Duras. The house was used in the film based on the real life woman - Marguerite Duras. The film tells the story of an early 20th century French girl who falls in love with a local Vietnamese-Chinese man. After a dose of unrequited romance, travel to the ancient Cung Buddhist temple. Next, stop and smell the fragrant lotuses as you visit the colorful Sa Dec flower village. Finish the journey to Saigon by car (around 4 hours). 

DAY 6: Dalat

You’re Dalat bound as you take a 5-hour car ride to the Bao Loc Highland. Start the day off right by cycling to the rushing Dambri Waterfall. Continue onto Din Linh - a green, sparsely-populated area in Lien Khuong. After a full day of riding, transfer to Dalat, where you will overnight at the Dalat Palace Hotel - an extravagant upscale hotel where you are sure to feel like royalty. The hotel was a favorite among French colonials for decades. 

DAY 7: Dalat

Take the charming city on by bike! The city is also known as the “City of Flowers.” Pay a visit to the famous “Crazy House,” a hotel with extremely interesting architecture unlike any other in the world. Next visit the gorgeous, grandiose, once summer place of Bao Dai - the last king of Vietnam. Bike to the ancient Trai Mat Village to visit the exquisite Linh Phuoc Temple. Return to your hotel for some well-earned shut-eye. 

DAY 8: Nha Trang

Breathe in the fresh countryside air as you bike 38-miles through Bi Dop National Park. Climb back into the car for a short transfer to Suoi Tien, onto the Suoi Dau Area and finishing the day in the beautiful beach town of Nha Trang. Stretch your legs out on the white sand before calling it a night at the stunning Amanoi or Six Senses hotel. 

DAY 9: Quy Nhon

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before beginning your 38-mile seaside cycle. Follow the coastal road of Tran Phu to Vung Ro. Pause and enjoy the sand at Dai Lanh beach before climbing back on your bike and cycling to Tuy Hoa town. The beautiful seaside town was once an air force base. Continue by car to Qui Nhon (2 hours), where you will spend the night. 

DAY 10: Hoi An & Danang

Begin the day by driving to the Quang Ngai Province. Begin your 12.5-mile bike ride at Tra Khuc Bridge. Continue to My Lai Son My village. This is where what was considered the most horrific massacre during the Vietnam War took place. After visiting the historic site, spend the evening at The Four Seasons Nam Hai resort in Hoi An. 

DAY 11: Hoi An & Danang

Give your legs a rest today and relax in Hoi An. Revel in the soft white sand as you soak in the sun’s warm rays on the beach. Enjoy the welcoming, eclectic vibe of the little town. Try some of the famous Vietnamese barbeque or local fresh seafood pulled straight from sea.  

DAY 12: Hue

Begin your 31-mile ride in Danang. Start cycling at the Hai Van Pass. Stop for lunch in the sleepy seaside town before finishing your cycle to Phuoc Tuong Pass. The pass is considered one of the top ten roads in the world. Reach Hue by car. Spend the night relaxing at La Residence Hue. 

DAY 13: Hue

Enjoy a boat trip to visit the Thien Mu Temple and the King Tomb of Tu Duc. Begin cycling at the local pagoda. Stop for a vegetarian meal prepared special by the area’s nuns. Visit the nearby orphanage and spend time with the children. Continue onto Thanh Toan Bridge where you will be transferred back to the hotel La Residence in Hue. You will bike 31 miles throughout the day. 

DAY 14: Saigon

Travel by a local vehicle called “cyclo,” today. The vehicle is a bike in the back with a cart in the front for the customer. The driver bikes the customer to their destination. This is a typical small Vietnamese town type of transportation. Visit the citadel of the Nguyen Dynasty - the last ruling family of Vietnam. Take an evening flight to Saigon, where you can relax at your hotel.

DAY 15: Departure

After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight home or onward.
