Hanoi Explorer Cycle Tour,
Vietnam, Hanoi and The North
Info : Hanoi Explorer Cycle Tour
Get a glimpse of Hanoi life off the beaten tourist track with this full day cycling tour through farmland, gardens, hidden laneways, and along the Red River. Beginning at West Lake, you will eat from market stalls on the streets, ride through back alleys, and see what life is like in the real Hanoi. After leaving the concrete city streets, you traverse the Red River, ride by ferry along a dyke road, cross the Than Long Bridge and enjoy a riverside lunch break.
Ride past tranquil lotus gardens and contemplate the very special Tran Quoc pagoda after lunch. The ride winds through quiet country back roads with little traffic and lovely colonial style buildings. This tour covers 40km on flat tarmac roads with lots of breaks for sightseeing and photos.
We feel that we've seen Vietnam and Cambodia in some depth. The real parts, not just the tourist areas. The holiday has provided us with great insight into both countries. David was right when he said it would be better to have our own Guide and driver. It really did make a big difference to the holiday overall!
