Leave behind the frenetic and fast-paced city of Hanoi for the day and go on an unforgettable bike ride through the Vietnamese countryside. Whizz along the banks of the Red River to explore the timeless traditional villages and learn the peaceful ways of life outside of Hanoi.
After a quick safety briefing, fill up your reusable water bottle and leave the busy streets of Hanoi behind. Pass Hanoi’s oldest bridge, The Long Bien, built by the famous Eiffel Construction company in 1902 and immerse yourself in local life and experience the beauty of Vietnam’s countryside. First stop, a bonsai garden where you'll learn about this intricate art and see some of the beautiful plant creations. Then it's on to the home of a famous local artist to admire some Vietnamese contemporary fine art. Back on your bike and off to a local temple. If you are lucky you will have a chance to see the Hau Dong ritual performance. Next up, a local market to taste some tropical fruits. Your ride continues through the farming area of Red River Island. There will be lots of opportunities to stop and take photos of the beautiful surroundings. Depending on the season, you may get to see locals picking the flowers to be taken to market. You'll continue cycling along the river to the famous West Lake for a cup of coffee or green tea before returning to the starting point in Hanoi.
