Breakfast at the hotel in the morning, we have a boat ride on Dong Nai River to Dao Tien, the Monkey Island. It's the Dao Tien Endangered Primate Species Center, where you can find many naturally releasing primates. Many of them had been victims of unlawful wildlife trades but now protected carefully in the forest. Then we go back to the hotel to do check out. Then we carry on our bike adventure; from the park, we ride on the dirt track to sub-Nam Cat Tien forest via Dak-Lua, the lush eco-system of a semi-evergreen forest and wetland-flooded evergreen forest.

Mostly, routes are too small for vehicles, but every 20 to 30km, there are many small roads connecting paths where you enjoy riding. These are also the places where your support vehicles standby in case you wanting to get on an A/C van. All tracks allow you to admire the fascinating countryside in a diverse country. A great team with local knowledge in different regions and route navigation will make bike riding more accessible.

Reviews

From Nha Trang we went to Hon Ong, where we spent three days before returning to Ho Chi Minh City and back home a week ago. In Sweden we have plenty of snow and a crisp -18 degrees celsius (see attached photos). I guess every country and climate has its own charm... Back to your question about the tour - We are very happy with our four day bicycle tour!! Phuc was a very good guide who made sure the biking and pace was up to our capacity. He made sure to stop to point out interesting things and enable us to take photos of views, coffee, tea, pepper and banana plantations. He made sure we had snacks and drink stops along the road. We got to stop and meet friendly people along the road. He took us to genuine and very good eating places and was all-over very friendly!! Hoang - our driver - was also very good. He was a skilled and very careful driver and we always felt safe with him behind the wheel. He was also very attentive and made sure we had water along the road, sheered us on and took care to wipe our eating sticks and plates when having meals. The trip was perfect for us - a mix of national park, jungle, farmland and back roads and with a one day stopover and sightseeing in Dalat. The fairly rough accommodation in Nam Cat Tien and the very good accommodation in Dalat was a good combination. We always felt very safe and we definitely had our share of adventure and sightseeing. I cannot enough express how happy we are with our biking with Vietnam Backroads Bicycle Tours. This was the best way to experience Vietnam!! We will sure recommend you to everyone who might be interested!! I can honestly not think of anything that could have been different - not even the rainy day we had between Dalat and Nha Trang. Kind regards..and please extend our praise to Phuc and Hoang as well! 2013
