  • 43 Comments

You will get a safe and tremendously interesting Vietnam cycling tour and see a ‘real’ Vietnam with the assistance of Viet Vision Travel. We have a lot of experience in organizing cycling trips all around Vietnam. For specialized cycling trips through Indochina, whether they are strenuous or gentle, we know the network of paths in mountainous regions and the back roads of villages. We use good quality, well-maintained bikes, and know how and where to use them ensuring safe and comfortable travel. There would be two types of cycling tours in Vietnam that we offer:

Vietnam cycling adventures
These types of trips are designed for someone looking for a really adventurous cycling holiday. We use professional bikes to meet your needs. For each trip, we would ask you to send us your height and we will prepare the suitable bike for you. We have designed our tour itineraries for people who practice cycling often and want to do both sightseeing and have physical challenges.
Every day, you will cycle from 30 to at most 80 km. It depends if you are on good roads or bumpy ones. We always try our best to avoid the crowded roads and using back roads as often as we can. This is a real balance between touring and cycling. For each adventure cycling tour, we have well-prepared support crews and equipment including van, truck, professional mechanic, tour guides; we also have spare bikes, spare tubes, and tools. For each trip, we support enough drinking water, fruits and foods for your needs during this physical trip. However, this is an adventure holiday, not a racing tour, so we will design the trip to balance between adventure, relaxation, and fun in the safest way.

Vietnam easy cycling trips
Travel from one place to new destinations, we take soft cycling tours in Vietnam to visit cultural and historical sites using bicycles instead of vehicles, which allows us to go further out of noisy and touristy places to peaceful and lush country sites and villages. Just need to pick up a good Vietnamese bicycle at your hotel or homestay and spend a couple hours in the afternoon gently paddling on flat lanes to neighboring villages cross rice paddy and back to the hotel or homestay by another way.

Tips and Advice for Cycling in Vietnam

The good time to cycle in Vietnam

The time between October and February is the best time for cycling in Vietnam because the weather is cool and rarely rain. You should avoid summer months when the temperature can reach over 40°C. If you do a cycle trip in summer you should get up early and stop by a coffee shop or street-side restaurant to take a nap at noon and avoid the heat.

Best and worst places to cycle in Vietnam

The big highway which connects north and south Vietnam is considered as one of the worst places to cycle in Vietnam because of the highest number of trucks and busses. While the Mekong Delta is one of the best choices for cycles with hundreds of small roads you can turn off to and get off the beaten track. Traffic there is less intense and people are super hospitable.

Accommodation for cyclers

You can find easily an accommodation along the road with a reasonable price. There is a wide range of hotels with different price fluctuating around 10 dollars for a simple room. The most popular type of hotel in Vietnam is a narrow 3 story with reception area on the ground floor. Every hotel has a space to park cycle overnight.

Foods for cyclers

Vietnamese cuisine is so tasty you can find cheap foods everywhere along your route. Banh Mi is available along the street and is one of the best choices for breakfast. There are a lot of options for lunch such as Bun, Pho(beef or chicken noodle soup with vegetables), etc. The price of a bowl of Pho is around $1.

Vietnamese phrases for cyclers

During the journey you can meet many Vietnamese people, some of them can wave their hands and say “hello” to you. The simplest way to respond is saying “ hello” with a smile, but if you can say some Vietnamese sentences like “Xin chào” or “ Cảm ơn” that ‘s much greater. In case you want to ask someone direction you should use the phrases “ ở đâu”, it sounds like “o dough”. But the best way to find direction is writing it down because it is quite hard for foreigners to pronounce Vietnamese, or using Google map.

Other problems

Cycling in Vietnam you may have to be faced with some problems such as being ripped off, being lost, etc. If you are lost you can ask locals for help, if you lost your bike you can take an independent mini-bus, which serve as the town to town transport in most of the country. Many cyclers may be ripped off when buying something, so the solution is that once you have a sense of how much things should cost, you can bargain for a reasonable price. We operate a variety of Vietnam vacations and tours. Check out our recommended Vietnam cycling tour, if you do not find any suitable tours or day trips, please contact our experts. We will help you tailor a unique cycling tour that is exclusively for you.
