Our Favorite Routes

In the glorious Vietnam

The best of the best…

We spent 3 months cycling the country from south to north. Our 3,123 km route took us from the gentle, coastal roads in the south; to exploring the remote Ho Chi Minh Road in the central highlands and finally ending up cycling the impressive Ha Giang Loop, hugging the Chinese border in the extreme north all the way to Dien Bien Phu, where we crossed in Laos.

We did a lot of riding in Vietnam, both super remote and in the bustling cities. Below, you’ll find a collection of our favorite routes, complete with:

  • Annotated google maps
  • A komoot map so you can check out elevations
  • Essential statistics
  • Important considerations
  • Our highlights & lowlights
  • Things we’d do differently…

Our favorite routes & rides

The Ho Chi Minh Road

Our favorite route! We just wished we found it sooner...

The Ha Giang Loop

The infamous Ha Giang Loop. Scenic, breathtaking and well, well worth the effort

Giving China a hug

A completely accidental route, but ever since we rode it, we’ve been telling anyone that’ll listen to us about it. This is a must ride!

Coconuts, palm trees & white sand

A national park that's easy to miss... But boy you'd regret it if you did!
