Vietnam North East. An Enchanted Landscape
Tiers of rice terraces fading seemingly to infinity as they drop away through a vast valley, karst pinnacles like those from a chinese water painting, minority people whose way of life and dress is little touched by the outside influences of the global village most of us inhabit; North East Vietnam as such is simply stunning. This tour is all about adventure. From Hanoi we take a classic oriental train journey north to within a few kilometres of the Chinese border from where we explore a region overwhelmed with natural splendour. The cycling is on small quiet roads with challenging climbs and breathtaking descents. We follow valley floors, climb through karst hills and past rice fields, cross passes and explore plateaus. If you desire a bicycle adventure through a Vietnam little visited by outsiders then The Painted Roads NE Vietnam Tour could well be for you.

NEW FOR 2015 - beers are on me! For 2015 all soft drinks and local beer on cycling days consumed together with the group until the end of our evening meal are included in the tour price. NB. This is within reason and intended to be taken in the spirt it is intended. It does not mean you and your group of drunken chums get a large wad of cash to drink whisky in the local den of iniquity or cocktails in the nearby five star until midnight.
