What To Expect
The starting point is the old capital of the Ngu Yen Dynasty, Hue. From there we will cycle over the Hai Van pass into the Vietnamese countryside, passing rural villages on quiet back roads. We visit the Cham Museum in Danang, the Marble Mountains and China Beach on the way to Hoi An and the Cham temples at My Son. We visit May Lai, scene to one of the worst massacres of the American Vietnam war. After relaxing at Whale Island we head to Nha Trang for onward connections.
We cycle over 450 kilometers in 7 cycling days. Lots of time on this tour is spent sight seeing and exploring Vietnam. Participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views as the rest of the group. There is one long day with a 10 km climb at the end, and fit and experienced riders usually find it sufficiently challenging. Our route is designed to take us off the main roads as much as possible, and we explore scenic back roads. We spend very little time on Highway One, cycling only on the quiet and particularly scenic sections.
