Vietnam cycling vacations travel guide
2 MINUTE SUMMARY
Most people don’t have enough time to travel the length of Vietnam on one vacation, but by taking the train between Hanoi in the north and Hue in the center, you can cover some serious ground. The train is the famous Reunification Express, built in 1975 as a way to reunify the people after war. In fact, we see cycling vacations in Vietnam as unifying in themselves. They break down the ‘them and us’ barrier and bring you into real communities, such as fishing villages around Nha Trang or small farming communities in the Central Highlands. You will connect with market traders scattered along the Mekong Delta, or with local cyclists on the dedicated lanes in Ho Chi Minh. Consider this Vietnam travel guide as a first introduction. After that, your connection with real Vietnam will be downhill all the way.
