Vietnam Bike Tours

A Feast for the Senses

From north to south, Vietnam’s a contrast of distinctly local cultures, and our local guides make sure you don’t miss a beat. In the Hoi An market, exploding with more produce than the mind can process, we wade into the crowds to barter and buy. On the backstreets near the Citadel, we bike with trusted friends. Then, in a private home, we sit down to dinner with royal descendants. And at the Six Senses Hideaway (luxury resort), our every whim is catered to with a smile.

Trip Details

Hotels:
Signature

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Day by Day

Having explored Hanoi by cyclo, we head south for our first ride on the outskirts of Hue, pausing by the Japanese Bridge to have your fortune told.

Board our private riverboat and cruise up the Perfume River to the tomb of Minh Mang. Dine tonight with Royal descendants in a wonderfully intimate setting.

Having visited the Citadel and the Forbidden City, we make our way to Da Nang, cycling past rice paddies and war memorials.

Pedal past local vegetable gardens and fish farms on the outskirts of Hoi An. Browse the markets of this UNESCO recognized town and pick up your new tailor-made clothes!

Fly to Nha Trang and cross the Cai River, past temples, on our way back to the stunning coast. Sip champagne from the privacy of your boat-access-only beach villa as you take in an unforgettable sunset.

Indulge in luxury at the Six Senses Spa (this is a vacation, remember). Take up the offer of a more challenging coastal ride before returning to the hotel for some beach time.

Enjoy lunch today with a local friend of ours in rural Nha Trang, before heading on to the glitz that is Saigon. Dine out this evening in the city that never sleeps.

Take a private speedboat along the Saigon River and explore the Cu Chi Tunnels, a visible reminder of the war. Embark on a stunning ride before heading back for cocktails and a final night party.

Enjoy a farewell breakfast at the hotel and tam biêt in Ho Chi Minh City. Or continue your exploration of the region with our Cambodia Post-Trip.

The Pilgrimage Village, Hue

The luxurious and relaxing Pilgrimage Village is located in the peaceful countryside just 4 km (2 mi.) from the centre of Hué. You’ll come to appreciate this after learning that the only thing the Vietnamese love more than waking up early is honking the horns on their mopeds! The rooms are simple but comfortable, personal, and stylish, and guests will find every need is cared for. View hotel website »
