Discover Vietnam by Bicycle


Vietnam Biking 

Vietnam's time has come — touted as the safest place in Asia, it is a phoenix in flight. Offering stunning landscapes from scenic rice paddies to the quiet jungles of the Mekong, this country showcases it all, while telling the story of its rich and complex history. It's a fascinating place to discover — and we'll take you straight to the heart of it.

Bike through the quiet tree-lined country paths, incredible beaches, banana plantations and thriving local markets. From north to south, Vietnam is a contrast of distinctly local cultures, and our local guides make sure you don’t miss a beat. In the Hoi An market, exploding with more produce than the mind can process, we wade into the crowds to barter and buy. On the backstreets near the Citadel, we bike with trusted friends. Then, in a private home, we sit down to dinner with royal descendants. And at the Six Senses Hideaway (luxury resort), our every whim is catered to with a smile.

Vietnam to Cambodia - Family Biking
Ride elephants through Angkor Wat, tour Hanoi’s Old Quarter, and bike along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Everywhere we go in Vietnam and Cambodia, we encounter children eager to make friends with the foreigners on the shiny bikes. That disarming friendliness permeates all aspects of life here, whether we’re riding elephants through Angkor Wat, touring Hanoi’s Old Quarter with a helpful guide, or stopping to chat with the townsfolk as we ride through the small villages along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
