DAY 1: HANOI COUNTRYSIDE

Cycling distance: up to 60km  

You will be met up a guide at your hotel in Hanoi. Leave the Hanoi busy town behind. You cycle across the Long Bien Bridge, the first steel bridge spanning the Red River in Hanoi, built by the French (1899-1902) and named for Doumer, read as though-love (the name of Governor Paul Doumer Indochina).  Once you are on the other side of the town, you will cycle along the dyke, goring into the rural area of Hanoi. Visiting an ancient village that is located by the Red river will help you know further the real life of Vietnamese people. You may want to visit a master of martial who practices Vietnamese Kungfu for years or a retired person who has lots of beautiful Bonsai. Then take a ferry crossing the Duong river. You will arrive in the area where people live in agriculture. You cycle from villages to villages, through rice fields and friendly people. You will arrive at Co Loa citadel around noon. This old fortress attracts many foreign tourists for its historical and cultural value. It would be interesting for tourists to find that this Citadel is not only built on a large scale but also took a very long time to construct. Especially, it has also been the source of various relics of the Dong Son culture of the Bronze Age. This would be a precious chance for tourists to explore such a large site and its potential beauty. This spiral-shaped complex will take you to the mysterious ancient Vietnam thousands of years ago. Lunch will be provided in a local restaurant or picnic lunch can be arranged. In the afternoon, it is possible for you to cycle for some more kilometers before being picked up and brought back to your hotel in Hanoi.
