Take in the majestic highland town of Dalat from your bike, see the misty pine forest and then descend to the coast where life in the fishing villages goes on as it has for generations. Ride the picturesque coastline all the way to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Hoi An and experience a side of Vietnam unknown to most travelers. All of this active fun is packed into a seven day cycling holiday with minimal time in the car.
A short flight takes us to Dalat where we check out the colonial-era architecture as well as more modern additions. After cycling through the temperate highlands, we descend to the subtropical environment of the coast, where we ride through the farming and fishing towns to Hoi An.
The Vietnamese coastline is made up of a picturesque variety of windy roads around headlands and sand dunes where colorful fishing boats bob at their moorings. Finish your ride in the world heritage listed town of Hoi An, full of historical significance, amazing food, and a lovely beach- the perfect reward for your active adventure.
Apart from a couple of days that are just a touch short of 100km, the riding is achievable for anyone who cycles regularly as a commuter or recreationally on weekends. Most of the roads are paved back roads with minimal traffic. We encounter only a couple of dirt roads and these are not hard riding at all. There are often sea breezes to keep the temperature down a little. There are a few other small hills, but we always return to sea level, so the up is a nice trade-off for the down.
- Explore the mystical town of Dalat by bike as you pedal past waterfalls and through the pine forest shrouded in mist.
- Visit local village industries such as mat weaving and rice paper making for a cultural experience.
- Pedal through small fishing villages filled with fresh fish markets and friendly locals before taking a boat to Hoi An.
- Enjoy the fresh flavors of Vietnamese cuisine along the way, including tasty fish straight from the sea.
