Hanoi Ninh Binh Hoa Lu Tam Coc Ninh Binh Thanh Hoa Vinh Dong Hoi - Dong Ha Hue
This is a fantastic 15 day itinerary combining sightseeing, cycling, driving and train. You don't need to be an Olympic athlete; the cycling is flat and suitable for all fitness levels. Plus, there is a support vehicle the whole way! This itinerary takes you from north to south and covers several major attractions along the way, including the picturesque fishing town of Hoi An , the former Imperial capital of Hue and the vibrant metropolis of Saigon . The scenery is particularly breath taking and by traveling by bicycle you'll have the chance to meet a multitude of people.

Day 1: Arrive Hanoi
You will be met on arrival and transfer to your Hotel. Group meeting and welcome dinner. (D)

Day 2: Depart Hanoi to Hue
Today we have the entire day to relax and see Hanoi 's fine sights. In the evening we catch the Reunification Express train to Hue . (B, D)

Day 3: Hue
Arriving into Hue , we are introduced to our bicycles, each designated bike being then adjusted and fitted with our own equipment as required. A short ride to Tu Duc's tomb may be possible during the afternoon. (B, L)

Day 4: Hue - Hoi An
The morning is spent sightseeing on our bikes around Hue . Time depending we hope to visit the Citadel and the Thien Mu Pagoda. We then get on a bus to Danang before cycling on to the World Heritage town of Hoi An. (B, L, D)

Day 5: Hoi An
A free day to explore the fascinating riverside town. Hoi An is a charming, quaint fishing town that can easily be explored on foot (or bicycle!). Some of its many attractions include the Chinese Assembly Halls, the ancient ancestral homes, and tailors' shops. There is also the pleasant Cua Dai beach 4 km from town. (B)

Day 6: Hoi An - Quy Nhon
We travel by bus to Quang Ngai where we cycle 10 km into the district of Song My, to the better known hamlet of My Lai . After visiting the simple memorial and museum we ride back to our buses and then travel to Qui Nhon (B, L, and D)

Day 7: Quy Nhon to Pleiku (via An Khe)
Today is one more challenging day as we head inland off Highway 1 and tackle the uphill road on Highway 19. We will only expect to part-cycle this, a gain of 750 meters over a distance of 186 km before reaching Pleiku (alt. 785m). Pleiku is in an area of the Truong Son mountain range (running much of the length of the country) which is home to some of Vietnam 's 54 hill tribe minority groups. (B, L, D)

Day 8: Pleiku - Buon Ma Thuot
Today's part-cycle is on an excellent road, Highway 14, taking in 197 km of undulating and scenic uplands. We'll pass by coffee plantations and national parks on our way to the largest town in the Western Highlands , and the capital of Dac Lac Province . (B, L, D)

Day 9: Buon Ma Thuot - Nha Trang
Today's part-cycle covers 194 km on Highway 28 and whilst undulating is mostly downhill towards the coast and Nha Trang. The accommodation for the next 2 nights is situated high on the headland overlooking the islands and equipped with its own private beach. (B, L, D)

Day 10: Nha Trang
We'll have a cycle-free day to enjoy the clear blue waters and relaxed ambience of Nha Trang. The way you wish to spend the rest of the day is up to you; a relaxing massage, a cooling swim in the pristine waters, a pedicure or cool beer by the sea. We can plan to return via one of the local fishing towns for the freshest seafood lunch available. (B, L, D)

Day 11: Nha Trang - Dalat
We begin today on with 95 km to Phan Rang. The cycling is excellent, made easier by the often-present strong tail wind. After lunch we then start the bus ride to Dalat. Dalat is situated at a height of 1500 meters and thus attracts a cooler climate. (B, L, D)

Day 12: Dalat
Dalat is set in the hills north of Ho Chi Minh City and is a renowned retreat for poets and artists. The atmosphere typifies this patronage with typical French provincial villas and lush undulating hills. This morning we'll visit King Bao Dai's Summer Palace and try to imagine this period of opulence and extravagance. We also visit a most unusual guest house (the Crazy House needs to be seen to be believed). Encounter some of the scenic vantage points and places around Dalat's hilly countryside. Close to our hotel there are a number of small French style cafes which boast the best coffee in Vietnam and are a good place to relax and watch the passing parade. This afternoon can be spent relaxing, exploring the lake area or seeking out some of the impressive French architecture throughout the town. (B)

Day 13: Dalat to Ho Chi Minh City by support vehicle
After breakfast, we'll drive south east for 7 hours (approx 350 km) to Ho Chi Minh City . On the way, we'll pass small hamlets as well as tea, coffee cashew nut. (B, L, D)
