WHAT TO EXPECT

In the afternoon, make your way to a central meeting point in Hanoi where you’ll be outfitted with bicycle and helmet, then follow your guide through the Old Quarter and the outskirts of the city. Take a scenic route over back roads at a leisurely pace and cross the cantilevered architectural wonder of Long Bien Bridge — built in 1902 by Gustave Eiffel — which leads into the Vietnamese countryside. Get a glimpse of rural life and local villagers as you pedal along the banks of the Red River en route to the estate of a renowned artist. Here, stop to admire the installations as you learn about contemporary trends in the country’s fine art. Then continue alongside the banana plantations and vegetable farms of Red River Island, stopping for photo ops and tastings along the way. On arrival in Quang Ba, your guide points out stacks of pottery awaiting bicycle transport into Hanoi. Cycle past floating houses and flower fields en route to West Lake, the city’s biggest lake, located in the center of Hanoi. Enjoy the colors of sunset while sipping a complimentary cup of coffee or green tea before you return by bike to the starting point.
