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.

Reviews

Thanks for the best 4 days we had in Vietnam ! we loved our tour and the enthusiasm you showed whilst guiding us. There is no way we could of seen the things we seen or done the things we did if we'd been on 4 wheels or even on foot...thanks mate. P.S. can you make sure you sort the weather out in Dalat if we come back :-) Saigon to Nha Trang 4 days. 05 Sep 2011

Trevor and Pau…

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
