On arrival in the countryside, you’ll get to grips with your bike and set off at a leisurely pace past winding streams and typical Vietnamese landscapes. Following a break for lunch, you’ll board a traditional wooden rowboat and explore the waterways of Tam Coc, where photo opportunities abound. At the conclusion of the cruise, you’ll be transferred back to your original departure point in Hanoi.
