• Cycling Northern Vietnam

Start your cycling adventure with some days in Hanoi. Why not enjoy your early morning in Hoan Kiem Lake by practicing exercise with the locals or taking a sip of coffee with stunning view of the lake. At night you can watch culture shows like water puppet show, ca tru, cheo and so on.

Your adventure by bike begins with a half day of peaceful cycling along the Hoa Binh reservoir to Mai Chau - home to the Thai ethnic minority. Take in the view and learn more about the ethnic Thai people that lives here.

Settle in before the next challenging cycling to Pu Luong. The scenic drive definitely gives you a feast for your eyes with its diverse scenery from pristine forests to the farmlands, from limestone to valley, dotted with the settlements of ethnic minority villages and traditional water mills of Thai people. Spend a night with a Thai family in their warm & traditional stir house.

Next morning, explore more hidden gems in Pu Luong by bike before transfering to Tam Coc, Ninh Binh.

Spend the next morning to explore the area with a visit to temple and pagoda. Then, take an enjoyable rowboat trip meandering through the towering limestone peaks and right into the limestone caves of Trang An- a world heritage site.

The next day, cycle up-hill further into the jungles and enjoy the nature surrounding, followed by a visit to Primates Rescue Center.
