Hanoi Bicycle Tour 1/2 Day

You will be met at your hotel by our guide and transferred across the Red River to collect the bicycles. After riding through the narrow streets we board a little ferry, along with the locals and their bicycles and motorbikes laden with produce and goods, and cross the river to the farmland. The scenery in the rice paddies will vary depending upon the season. The route takes us along a little narrow path through the rice paddies where you can stop to take photos of the paddies, farmers and buffalos. There will be an opportunity to sample some local street delicacies from a passing vendor, perhaps a steamed bun, sticky rice, fresh coconut or sugar cane juice. Or you may like to sample the local beer at a street side bia hoi.
