Village Discovery by Bike - Small Group Tour

Trade in the frenetic pace of hectic Hanoi for an unforgettable bike ride through the Vietnam countryside. Cycle along the banks of the Red River to explore the timeless traditional villages and learn about life outside of Hanoi.

Leave the busy streets of Hanoi behind via a scenic road winding through the citys Old Quarter, through the urban outskirts, and into the countryside.

Experience the beauty of Vietnam's rurality as you cycle through back roads and along the banks of the Red River. See local villagers at work as your guide points out traditional activities and sights.

Stop by a famous local artists house to study some popular trends of Vietnamese contemporary fine arts, including installation, body, and performance art. You will have chance to view them all here at his 2000 square meter estate.

You'll continue your tour by cycling through the tranquil banana and vegetable farming area of Red River Island. There will be lots of opportunities to stop and take photos of the beautiful surroundings and the locals working on their farms.

Next, head off to the pottery village of Quang Ba where ceramics are stacked waiting to be taken into Hanoi by bicycle. This route takes you past the Red River's floating houses and fields of colorful flowers. Depending on the season, you may get to see locals picking the flowers to be taken to market.

Continue cycling along the river to the famous West Lake for a cup of coffee or green tea while enjoying the magnificent sunset. Back on your bikes, return to the meeting point in Hanoi where your guide will be able to assist you in getting a taxi to your hotel.
