As you might know, exploring Vietnam by bike is one of the one of the best ways to see a country known worldwide for its two-wheeled culture. On this 14-day, mostly-cycling adventure, World Expeditions will steer you through some of Vietnam’s most iconic spots, from Hanoi in the north to Ho Chi Minh city in the south.

Here’s what World Expeditions says it offers for this trip: comfortable geared bikes, a support crew and backup vehicle, nights in reliable hotels and accommodations.  And “pedaling at a steady pace we explore an ever-changing landscape of tranquil highlands, palm fringed beaches and country roads that lead through mango and coconut groves.

Here’s details from this well-priced, well-supported adventure; for photos of this trip see operator website.
