Cycling to Bat Trang pottery village

Day 1 Cycling to Bat Trang pottery village

Meals: not any | Accommodation: not included

8:00 AM - You are picked up at your hotel by the guide and hop in a taxi to our bicycles storage. We get the bikes, cross the dyke road and start riding on a piece of History: the Long Bien Bridge. Over the bridge, we head south and quickly get off the main roads. It is a bit over an hour and half cycling along the Red River on a small path across vegetable garden and orchards. You will have a chance to witness daily life of Hanoi’s farmers and to learn a bit more about their products and practices.

We then arrive in Bat Trang village. This ancient riverside village was slowly swallowed by Hanoi’s expansion but its ancestral art remained: ceramic. We will stroll around to visit workshops where are produced most of the ceramics you may find in Hanoi.

11:00 - Make your way back to Hanoi.
Option 1: Cycle all the way back to city centre along riverside. Drop off bicycles at our storage then taxi to your hotel. Trip ends at around 14:00

Option 2: Leave your bicycles with our truck, you take a public bus for getting back to the city centre. It’s a real local experience but can be a cramped sometimes. Trip ends at your hotel around 12:30
