With a history over 4,000 years old, our heritage bicycle tour fuses the beauty of Vietnam’s central landscape with a glimpse into its rich, evocative past. Concentrated to just 250 km, our journey envelops the area surrounding the Hai Van Pass in central Vietnam. At Hue, the former Imperial capital of the Nguyen Dynasty, step into the past to enjoy manicured gardens and the sprawling complex of stunning palace buildings. Then our bicycle tour through Vietnam continues on down the coastal road to My Son, built by the kings of Champa between the 4th and 14th centuries, now the site of the most extensive Cham remains.
Cruise the Perfume River, enjoying the tropical scent of flowers from which it gets its name, up to the impressive seven-story Thien Mu Pagoda. Cycle Vietnam through quiet country lanes,as we make our way to Phuoc Tich, an untouched settlement of 500-year old 'ruong' houses, symbolic of the region. Surrounded by a backdrop of lush greenery, explore the beautiful village to catch locals making colorful incense and pottery.
Wander southerly Hoi An, a port city famous for colonial influences, which has worked hard to preserve its highly traditional culture. The Ancient Town still standing as a historical example of graceful architecture cut through with canals. Sample age-old Vietnamese dishes and local delicacies served street side. For a genuine understanding of Vietnamese life and culture, look no further than this lavish heritage tour of Vietnam by bicycle.
