Hanoi - Ba Vi - Duong Lam village - Hanoi

Day 1 Hanoi - Ba Vi - Duong Lam village - Hanoi

Meals: lunch | Accommodation: not included

8:00 AM - We leave from your hotel, bikes packed in the minibus. After a 2-hour highway drive out of the bustling capital, we reach a small tea village bordering Ba Vi National Park. Time for a cold drink if you like while your guide preps the bikes.

Our biking route was made up around local villages, corn fields, orchard garden and tea plantations… and leads to the ancient village of Duong Lam for a lunch break at one of the village local houses.

Two options are offered in the afternoon. You can choose to spend more time to walk throughout the village, visit other houses, meet other families and visit the local temple and pagoda. Or you may prefer more cycling with another loop in a beautiful rural atmosphere. The loop would also end at the pagoda and you could have a quick glance at it before returning Hanoi. Trip ends at your hotel in Hanoi around 17:00
