Vietnam is perhaps one of Asia’s finest destinations for biking, considering its extensive use in day to day life. There is no better way to get close to people in the countryside and to take in the extraordinary sights, sounds and smell of rural life in Vietnam.

Guests are picked up at the port at 7:30AM and transferred out of the busy city to a drop off point in Tan Phong ward, district 7. From there, each guest will be provided a bicycle and, as a group, we will cycle through villages and local markets on both paved and dirt roads toward the Tan An township of Long An province

On the way, we stop for a coffee or a cold drink and to chat with local people. This is a relaxing and insightful ride to discover the simple but enchanting way of life in the Vietnamese countryside without journeying too far. The ride will be from 20 to 35km depending on group ability and includes a local lunch. Return to the port around 3:30PM.
