We depart early at 7:30 for idyllic biking to Dong Ha today. After you are met at the hotel, followed by a short vehicle transfer to Pha Tam Giang lagoon. We cycle on a quiet country road along the Tam Giang lagoon. Enjoy the stunning landscape along the peninsula, views several fishing boats on the lagoon, see water buffalos working on rustic farmlands, and pass some vibrant local markets. As we leave the lagoon behind, take a right turn on the dirt track to coast. The trails are flat through small hamlets with tiny thatch houses, colourful temples, and blue beaches. There are many coffee breaks along the coast. Then we cycle toward Dong Ha, and the paths are mainly through the countryside with lotus fields, rice paddies and rivers that crisscross the vast farmlands. The ride is unique; cross through charming villages, rustic farmlands of vegetables takes us to the urban District, and finally, a transfer takes us to City Center.

We walk on the historic bridge of Hien Luong, take plenty of photos, view the peaceful Ben Hai River, and visit its History Museum before cycling on quiet back roads along this river until we turn left the minor road through the countryside. The rural roads are gentle and mixed with concrete and asphalt, crossing the tranquil hamlets and rustic countryside villages. The local guide will take us through all levels and see how people live during the bombardment as we reach the tunnels. Then we follow the coast, ride to Cua Tung Beach, and have a seafood lunch at a local restaurant by the sea. After lunch, relax on a vehicle driving on the coast to Hue.
