Vietnam is a beautiful, diverse and heavily regional country. With tropical beaches in the south, dense jungle in the central highlands and rugged, karst mountains in the north – this is a country that will surely suit every cyclists’ taste.
When you mix in the mouth watering food options, delicious coffee, abundant cheap accommodation, interesting Sino-Asian culture, varied religious outlooks, approachable language and friendly locals — it’s really hard not to like Vietnam!
Whether you’re looking at getting a 15 day, 1 month or 3 month visa (like us), Vietnam has more than enough to keep you cycling & energised every day. Lots of cyclists make use of Vietnam’s great overnight buses to cover more ground and see more of the country. We did this a couple of times and would definitely recommend it if you’re short on time, or you want to pack in some highlights!
