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.

I am so happy I went on this trip. Wasn't sure what to expect but it was wonderful. Everyone from guides to fellow riders couldn't have been better. I got to see this beautiful country and enjoy their food. Thanks to our guides, it was a trip I won't forget. Outstanding trip!

The best thing about SpiceRoads is the guides! While the countryside is always beautiful, and the cycling fun - it's the guides that truly make the trips amazing. Our guide in Vietnam, Mr. Lee was so knowledgeable, friendly and committed to our safety and pleasure. We felt so well looked after!

I loved everything about this tour! This was my first time taking a bicycle tour and I didn't really know what to expect, but I can't imagine a better experience. I have traveled to Vietnam several times in recent years, but only to the major cities. This tour gave me a great opportunity to see the villages, countryside, and back roads of this fascinating country. The service provided by our SpiceRoads team was outstanding. After every stop, our water bottles were refilled, we never had to check into a hotel or carry our luggage as that was all handled, and every little detail was handled smoothly. The highlight of trip was definitely our outstanding guides Lee and Anh! Their true professionalism, their fascinating insights and information about the country and their friendly sense of humor were all delightful.
