Full description
Explore the countryside surrounding Hanoi by bike, and cycle through rural villages and farms far from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, head down hidden alleyways to experience the real Hanoi, peeking into open doorways where families prepare for the day. Cycle past children on their way to school, and see what’s available to eat at the street stalls.

Wind your way into open farmland to board a small ferry on the Red River. Explore the small gardens on fertile banks on the other side. Cross back over the Red River at Thang Long Bridge to enjoy a local lunch on the banks of the silted river bank.

Next, explore the north side of West Lake, the largest of Hanoi’s lakes. Rest in the lotus gardens, before riding along the water’s edge to one of the most revered Buddhist pagodas in Vietnam. Explore Tran Quoc Pagoda. Then, peddle the back streets of colonial houses en route back to the Sofitel Plaza and the end of your tour.
