Cycling Hanoi to Saigon Tour 15 Days

Summary: It is a really enjoyable trip biking from the north to the south of Vietnam, it is Fascinating cultural experiences in the tribes, spectacular and relaxing Halong Bay, the madness of Hanoi, and the sights of the rest of Vietnam. A couple of days of trekking, but more walking after that. Still tiring due to the heat/humidity, early starts and some long bus rides. Well worth the experience. Cycling down the stunning coastline of southern Vietnam past turquoise bays, white beaches and palm tree-lined rice fields.Explore the majestic Royal Tombs of Hue and ascend the Hai Van Cloud Pass for vast views of tropical mountains falling into the sea.Drift back in time while walking the cobblestone streets of Hoi An, a 2,200 year old trading port and relax and swim at the beach resort of Nha Trang
