You will meet your fellow cyclists and tour guide in Hue, where you can bond over a cycle around the city.
Your first cycle of the trip will be down the coast, on a route which gives you a taste of Vietnam, sheltered by coconut palms, dunes and pagodas leading you to Lang Co Beach, where you will stay the night.
This morning will be a challenge, a 10k climb to Hai Van Pass which Jeremy Clarkson described as a ‘deserted ribbon of perfection’. The descent will take you to Danang for lunch, then you’ll cycle along flat land to the city of Hoi An, so stunning it has been awarded UNESCO Heritage Site status. Take a wander to soak up the atmosphere and vibrant streets and make sure you stay out late enough to see the town light up with lanterns lining the river at night.
This mornings ride will take you to My Son, a 4th century centre of Cham civilisation. The journey to My Son will be scenic and, although multiple temples were destroyed during the war, the remaining ones are still sure to impress. You will take a transfer or cycle back to Hoi An.
The day will begin with a transfer to Quang Ngai (around 2.5 hours) followed by a cycle to My Lai, sight of one of the worst massacres in the Vietnam War. After a tour of the museum you’ll continue cycling through the countryside reaching Highway 1, where a transfer will take you to the hotel.
It’s an early start so we can begin the expedition to Qui Nhon, capital of the Binh Dinh Province. The route takes us along peaceful tracks to Ba To Town, where the locals may be surprised to see western tourists.
The cycle from Dieu Tri is parallel to a railway line, with stunning scenery of the highlands. You will explore countless tribal and Viet villages, don’t be alarmed by the animals and children you may need to cycle around!
For your last cycle, expect beautiful landscapes with stunning mountains either side, tranquil rice fields and enchanting valleys. Take a break for refreshments and an optional swim at Dai Lanh Beach then cycle along moonscape land en route to the Hon Gom peninsula, where you will depart for Whale Island.
Today you can enjoy some well deserved rest and relaxation time before enjoying the final day of the trip on Whale Island.
After a transfer to Nha Trang it will be time for you to depart for your homeward travel.
