Bike Tours in Vietnam
Vietnam is probably the most popular country in Asia for bike tours with hundreds available. It is very much a developing country although is further ahead than neighbouring Laos and Cambodia. If you haven't been before, the legacy of the Vietnam War may be foremost in your mind. And while this is still a hugely important factor particularly in Saigon, there is so much more to this country that has moved on considerably in the last three decades.
November to April is the best time of year to tour to avoid the wettest weather and the summer heat - however winter can get quite cold in northern locations. Food is amazing year round across the country and is traditionally one of the world's healthiest cuisines. The national dish is Pho, a (usually beef) noodle soup, and fresh vegetables abound. Coffee and baguettes are also very good with the latter having been held onto from the French colonial era. A little known fact is that Vietnam is the world's second biggest coffee producer after Brazil.
Ride the classic length of the country from Hanoi to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), or any region such as Hanoi-Halong Bay, the Central Coast (Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang and Dalat) or the Mekong Delta in the south. Look out for the traffic and the often poor road confitions though. Fortunately there are plenty of bike tour operators here who will take you on the safest and most interesting routes. Prefer mountain biking? No problem, the mountains in the North-West offer some of the best trails in South-East Asia.
