Explore Hanoi Rural Life by Bicycle
Head off the beaten track and take to two wheels to explore the rural villages along the banks of the Red River close to Hanoi. Cycle through lush countryside, stopping off to learn about day-to-day life including local cultures and beliefs.
After collecting your bikes, cycle through the narrow streets of Bac Bieng village before arriving at the Duong River, which you will cross via local ferry. On the other side of the river, continue your journey, passing verdant rice paddies and gardens, traditional houses and pagodas. Visit a local family for a cup of tea and learn about their daily life.
Stop at a temple to learn about spiritual beliefs and religion in rural Vietnam. Practices in the countryside can be notably different to those in the city. If you are lucky, you may see people taking part in the practice of Len Dong, an unusual ceremony where participants enter a trance-like state to act as mediums for spirits. You will then cycle back to Hanoi.
This tour can be done in the morning or afternoon. Helmets, water and snacks are included.
