Itinerary idea in detail

  • Day 1

    You will begin your tour in the historic city of Hue, which was the last seat of Imperial power in Vietnam. A representative from ABT Self-guided will meet you at your hotel to give you your equipment and explain the road conditions in Vietnam. They will also show you how to use the provided technology.

  • Day 2

The scenery will change from rice fields to sandy dunes, and you’ll see farmers’ homes turning into fishing cottages as you get closer to the ocean. You’ll pedal through some hills along the coastline, enjoying tasty Vietnamese food to keep you going. When you reach the vast Cau Hai Lagoon with a backdrop of mountains and a view of the ocean, you’ll find peaceful surroundings with mainly local Vietnamese families. Be sure to try our recommended local eateries for a satisfying meal on your journey.

  • Day 3

    oday, you’ll start cycling on small hills to get ready for the challenging but beautiful climb up the Hai Van Pass. The road up the mountain offers great views of the ocean and lagoon. Since most traffic uses a tunnel, you’ll enjoy a quiet ride with a gradual slope. The descent on the other side takes you along the coast into Da Nang, a busy city. After passing through some suburban areas, you’ll see Da Nang’s famous bridges and visit the Lady Buddha monument.

    Finally, our representative will meet you and take you to Hoi An, an ancient town that has survived floods and wars, maintaining its charm and character.

  • Day 4

    Taking a day to rest will get you ready for the upcoming cycling and give you time to discover the deep history and varied architecture of this old town. You can explore the modern and traditional food options and even head to the nearby beach with a short ride. Follow our app for recommendations or go for a stroll on your own. If you’re eager to cycle more, you can also try our specially planned 28km ride around the city and countryside.

  • Day 5

    Today, you’ll ride from Hoi An to the ancient My Son ruins, where you’ll find Hindu temples in a jungle valley. My Son was once a significant center for the Champa kingdom and is now a UNESCO site.

    Your cycling route will take you through picturesque countryside, on quiet back roads that are only accessible by bike. You’ll pass villages and rice fields, meeting friendly locals along the way. After a day full of smiles and history, you’ll return to Hoi An in the evening.

  • Day 6

    Leaving Hoi An, you’ll see local vendors bringing fresh produce to the market from nearby farms. The ride today goes through small fishing villages on a peninsula where fish are farmed and homes line the windy shoreline. Pedal south towards Tam Ky, the capital of Quang Nam Province.

  • Day 7

    Today, you’ll ride on a busy main road, but it’s well-paved for a smooth journey. After passing through industrial areas, you’ll return to quiet coastal roads and villages for a seafood lunch.

    Next, you’ll cycle to Quang Ngai, a university town. Along the way, you’ll see the Son My Memorial, which remembers the tragic My Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War.
