Travel Vietnam

Bustling Vietnam

Vietnam is one of Southeast Asia’s most exciting and diverse cycling destinations with foods and flavours to equal the stunning rural, river and mountain landscapes.

Having burst onto the world economic scene in recent years, Vietnam has shedded its image of tragic, war-torn destination, replacing it with a modern and forward-moving vibe great for riding.

From the Mekong Delta in the south, to the dramatic mountains of the north, Vietnam also boasts two emerging world-class cities, a coastline dotted with spectacular beaches and some wonderful historical sites to pedal through.

The country is blessed with diverse and picturesque landscapes, warm, friendly people, a rich cultural heritage, and an appealing, tasty and varied cuisine - all best taken in on two wheels.

Our favourite time: Any time!

Being 1650km from north to south, Vietnam's seasons vary across the country, making it a year round destination for bike tours. This also means that you will probably encounter some rain if you are travelling extensively, regardless of your month of travel.

Northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Ha Giang and Sapa) is cold in the winter months (Nov-Mar), and can be damp and misty, although there are also beautifully sunny days at this time of year.

The central region (Hoi An, Hue & Nha Trang) is wettest from September to December with occasional typhoons, which can occasionally disrupt travel.

The south experiences the regular Southeast Asian monsoon between June and October, with dry sunny weather from November to April. December and January are the coolest months with temperatures rising during April and May leading to the onset of the rains.

When is the best time to visit Vietnam?

Generally, the best time to visit Vietnam is during the months of November to February when the monsoon rains are not as frequent, the landscape is full of vibrant green, and the temperatures in the central and southern regions in particular are cool and provide some relief from the typical heat and humidity. While the north can be chilly in these months, it is still a great time to visit. Once you reach March and April, temperatures soar and you may be less comfortable being active. Intermittent rain showers hit the country from June to December, and although the rain can come as a relief it also causes some flooding that is best to avoid.
