Don your nón lá to protect you from the sun and join us on this leisurely bike tour away from the big city. Relish the sights and smells of rural Vietnam as you see farmers working in their fields and enjoy a traditional lunch before boarding your Sampan and rowing towards the alluring Galaxy Grotto…..

Your experienced guide will be waiting for you bright and early in the lobby of your hotel to take you on the journey south to a traditional village in the Ninh Binh area of the beautiful Red River Delta region. On collection of your bike you will embark on a leisurely journey on this most traditional mode of transport through the village, experiencing rural life first hand.

It’s time for a rest and the chance to really get down with the locals. Take a break from the bike and enjoy some traditional activities – such as learning how to fish with the residents. This is a unique opportunity to learn about more about life in the countryside.

All this fresh air and activity will have given you an appetite, and what better place to break for lunch than a traditional house on stilts, where you will sample some of the mouth watering food for which Vietnam is famous.

Following our lunch break you are in for another treat – a relaxing row in a traditional wooden boat along the Ben Dang. Here you will be blown away by the wildlife and lush scenery along the route. But that’s not all – disembarking, your guide will lead you to the famous Galaxy Grotto, where you will learn about its origins and wildlife, and of course see the weird and wonderful stalactites that adorn the caves. Watch out for the bats!

Back to the boat, you will return to the village and have opportunity to take a few photos as your guide prepares everything needed for the drive back to Hanoi.
