Journey into the rural heart of Vietnam and come face to face with spectacular natural beauty, royal temples and rich heritage.

Trade in the frenetic pace of Hanoi with an unforgettable bike ride through the Vietnam countryside. Cycle along the banks of the Red River to explore the timeless traditional villages and learn about life outside of Hanoi.


  • Experience the beauty of Vietnam’s countryside as you cycle through back roads and along the banks of the Red River on our Hanoi village tour. See local villagers at work as your guide points out traditional rural activities and sights. We’ll stop by a famous local artist’s house to study some popular trends of Vietnamese contemporary fine arts, including installation, body, and performance art. You will have chance to view them all here at his 2000 square meter estate. Your journey begins with a one-hour drive from the hectic capital of Hanoi to the Bat Trang ceramic village. On reaching, take a guided tour through the production process in the village. You will have a chance to visit the workshops and have a look at the kilns used for firing the ceramic pottery. We’ll continue our bike tour by cycling through the tranquil banana and vegetable farming area of Red River Island. There will be lots of opportunities to stop and take photos of the beautiful surroundings and the locals working on their farms. We then head off to the pottery village of Quang Ba where ceramics are stacked waiting to be taken into Hanoi by bicycle. This route takes us past the Red River’s floating houses and fields of colorful flowers. Depending on the season, you may get to see locals picking the flowers to be taken to market. We continue cycling along the river to the famous West Lake for a cup of coffee or green tea while enjoying the magnificent sunset. Back on our bikes, we’ll return to the meeting point in Hanoi where your guide will be able to assist you in getting a taxi to your hotel.
