All About this Tour

Capture an unforgettable snapshot of Vietnam’s shoreline with our tour of the Central Coast. Cycle iconic sandy-white beaches framed by coconut palms, with the sails of junks and sampans floating on the emerald green horizon of the South China Sea. The narrowest section of this unconditionally friendly country holds an incredible number of sights to feast your eyes on, making the ride worth all the effort involved.

Itinerary

Day 1

Meet in Hue, the old capital of the Ngu Yen Dynasty.

Day 2

From Hue, we follow the coast as we ride on roads shaded by coconut palms and dunes scattered with mini mausoleums, pagodas, and war memorials. Overnight at resort on Lang Co Beach.

Day 3

Climb Hai Van Pass for superb views of the bay and ride downhill to Danang for lunch. Cycle to China Beach and then on country roads to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hoi An.

Day 4

From Hoi An, we ride on country backroads past paddy fields to visit My Son, the ancient centre of the Cham civilisation, returning to Hoi An early in the afternoon.

Day 5

We transfer from Hoi An to Quang Ngai where we ride to My Lai, the site of one of the worst massacres of the American War, and then through the Vietnamese countryside.

Day 6

We journey to Qui Nhon and cycle a loop to Ba To Town, riding on quiet backroads where people are unaccustomed to the sight of western cyclists.

Day 7

Ride from Dieu Tri along a remote but well surfaced road. The terrain is gently rolling, with beautiful views of the highland foothills. Transfer to avoid the highway to our hotel in Tuy Hoa.

Day 8

On our last cycle, we soon have mountains on both sides as we ride through a network of lush rice fields in the valley. We ride to the Hon Gom Peninsula and take a boat to Whale Island.

Day 9

Today is free to relax on the beach, snorkel, or scuba dive.

Reviews

We loved Vietnam and getting to see the central coast up close and personal. The rides were awesome, food wonderful and the perfect blend of cultural experiences and stories by the local guides.

Our second ride with SpiceRoads and not our last - to see and experience a country and its culture from a bicycle, is the absolute best way to explore. We would also like to give Tony, the co-guide our best recommendations. He is a really pleasant young man with lots of potential.

Enjoyed immensely my bike ride with spice roads in Vietnam at age 79 years. Best way to visit the country away from regular tourist routes. Already thinking about next Big ride on my Next Big birthday!
