Cycling Vietnam’s Central Coast

Vietnam Central Coast is packed with cultural points of interest and scenic rides. You will have a chance to experience the historic monuments of Hoi An and Hue to the relaxing beaches of Whale Island. This adventure is a delight for those wishing to explore the heart of Vietnam. We will set the starting point for this adventure to be the old capital of the Ngu Yen Dynasty, Hue. The cycling commences with a ride through the Vietnamese countryside with a challenging climb over Hai Van pass where you’ll have a panoramic view of the bays; passing rural villages on quiet back roads, the peacefulness of the surroundings are in sharp contrast to our destination of My Lai, the site of one of the worst massacres of the American – Vietnam War. This trip is combined with history, culture, some superb cycling and ending at the island beach resort, this trip covers it all!
