Even with its vigorous economic growth, Vietnam is as charming, picturesque and wondrous as the first time we cycled here more than a decade ago. Certainly, the country is thriving, but that just means the roads are a bit better (making our bikes a little happier), and even more luxurious hotels pepper the coast. But the people remain the same: gracious, warm, and infinitely inviting—and you’ll meet a lot of them on this epic journey from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. In between, take in all the highlights, from the floating markets to the Imperial tombs to endless miles of scenic, colourful country and coastal roads.
