Tips & Advice for Vietnam Biking Tours

The time between October and February is the best time for biking tours in Vietnam because the weather is cool and rarely rains. You should avoid the 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.
The Best & Worst Places to Cycle in Vietnam

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.
Foods for Cyclers

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 $2.
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 by 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 for the direction you should use the phrase “ ở đâu”, it sounds like “o dough”. But the best way to find direction is by writing it down because it is quite hard for foreigners to pronounce Vietnamese, or by using Google Maps.
