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, for a city tour by bicycle.

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 Heritage Site Hoi An.

Day 4

From Hoi An we ride on country back roads past paddy fields to visit My Son, the ancient centre of the Cham Civilization and return to Hoi An early in the afternoon.

Day 5

In the morning 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

Today we leave early for the journey to Qui Nhon and cycle a loop to Ba To Town, riding on quiet back roads 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 foothills of the highlands. Transfer to avoid the highway to our hotel in Tuy Hoa.

Day 8

On our last cycling we ride from our hotel and soon have the encroaching 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 on Whale Island to relax on the beach, do some snorkeling or scuba diving.

Day 10

We transfer back to the mainland and then onto Nha Trang for any onward connections.
