Bike Tours

When we say bike, we don't mean the motorised kind. We're talking about pedal power, sans internal combustion engine. Free-wheeling from Ho Chi Minh City to the hills of Dalat or coastline of Phan Thiet gives a totally different perspective on Vietnam and provides a glimpse of Vietnamese rural life, smells included. In Saigon, check out Vietnam Bike Tours for group and private tours. Rustle up a pair of wheels and get going, as bicycling provides one of the best ways to travel leisurely while maximising your sightseeing.

There are a number of bike tour companies based in HCMC. Try Vietnam Bike Tours, established in 2005. They run a variety of tours including multiday treks through the Mekong Delta. The relatively flat topography of southern Vietnam means bicycling is fairly effortless. The predominance of bicycles in the Saigon region means that you are never far from a repair shop should a gremlin climb inside the gears.
