What's included in this trip
Cycle Vietnam SummaryAdd to Shortlist
With a vibrant Old Quarter to explore, delicious food to discover and a city where ancient meets modern with ease, no wonder Hanoi is a favourite with travellers.
Misty mountains, emerald green rice paddies, stilted houses and smiling hilltribe locals inhabit the delightful town of Mai Chau, a slice of rural paradise.
Ninh Binh is picture-perfect Vietnam - lush green fields, towering limestone mountains, tranquil waterways, charming historic sites and friendly locals.
From Ninh Binh, explore Tam Coc and ancient Hoa Lu. Settle in on an overnight train to Hue.
As the former imperial capital of Vietnam, Hue holds the treasures of Vietnam's royal past and is a curious mix of bustling streets and tranquil settings.
With lantern-lit streets, vibrant markets, skilled tailors, artisan shops, ancient houses, colourful temples and beautiful smiles, Hoi An is a Vietnamese wonderland.
Sitting on the Vietnamese coast, Quy Nhon has great beaches, mouth-watering cuisine, few tourists and a relaxed pace of life.
Nha Trang is a charming town on Vietnam's southeast coast with pristine beaches, consistently good weather, a vibrant nightlife and excellent diving.
With an appealing Swiss-French feel, along with pleasant lakes, palaces, flower gardens and pagodas, Dalat is often called the 'city of eternal spring' for its temperate climate.
Make the journey to Bao Dai's regal summer palace before discovering the wacky and weird architecture of Hang Nga Crazy House. Echoing Gauldi's unconventional designs, and described as a 'fairytale house', explore the twisted tree roots, cave shaped hallways and animal themed rooms of this surreal guesthouse. Pedal to Ke Ga, another delightful seaside village.
Formerly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is an exciting and dynamic city brimming with street vendors, cyclos, temples, shops and colonial architecture.

Cycle Vietnam, May 2014
Simply amazing. Every part of the trip was very well organised and all the sights and side excursions were a perfect way to experience Vietnam and its people. Most of all the trip was made memorable by our group leader Long Le. He never stopped smiling and did everything he could to make our experience one to remember for a lifetime. Because of Long and I am already looking to book another Intrepid tour, and have already recommended Intrepid and the Cycle Vietnam to not only friends but also to people I meet on the street!

Cycle Vietnam, April 2014
This tour was amazing, enjoyed every minute of it. The team involved were outstanding, the tour leader Long Le was exceptional. He made sure that I was happy the entire time, kept things fun and was very informative about the history of his country.
