One of our travel experts shares her experience from our Cycle Saigon to Hanoi trip.
“Over the course of the first few days, we'd head out of the city early, to avoid traffic and the heat of the day. Cycling was a brilliant way to see how the country changed even within small pockets of countryside. On one of our first rides in the Mekong Delta, we stopped to watch as coconuts were harvested, buying them to crack open so we could drink water before eating the delicious meat. We were in the moment, enjoying the fruits of people's labour, knowing we were supporting the local community. It was a great introduction to the rural Vietnamese people too; while cycling, people were swinging on hammocks at the front of their houses, waving hello as we passed by. ”
