Road Condition

We select the best paths, single track and country back roads for our cycling tours. Mostly, routes are paths, single track that are too small for vehicles. Country back roads are less traffic which A/C van could support riders. Vietnam Backroads offers fascinating cycling tours to discover this diverse country. Bicycle touring from the capital of Ha Noi or Ho Chi Minh City to central coastal provinces and west Chi Minh trails along mountain ranges are our top bike tours in Vietnam. Its the best way to meet locals, to enjoy breathtaking views and to receive an extremely warm welcome from the hospitable locals. You will travel through colourful fishing villages, green rice paddy fields, across mountain ranges and through the jungle, ride rolling hills and pedal up the the peak of Ha Van Pass. Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ha Long and exlpore Hue Citadel and Hoi An ancient town. In general, mixed of roads; single track, dirt track are rough and but asphalt country back roads and coastal back roads with smooth surface allows you touring the Charm of Vietnam.
