Tour's Program

Our guide will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi at around 7:30 and then we head to the meeting point for getting bike. A short briefing and instruction about biking skills and notes will be given to you before we start full day cycling tour.

Being ready, we will start the trip by cycling along the Red River dyke, passing the Red River through the legendary Long Bien Bridge, the pride and symbol of architecture in the Far East. After getting out of busy Hanoi center, we will join the small biking trail and spend your time leisurely on cycling through the scenic countryside passing the villages with lush rice fields, cornfields, vegetable farms and fruit farms to Bat Trang Pottery Village.

Reaching Bat Trang Village, we will first walk along the village to see the local life and the traditional handicraft and then get a chance to shop at the largest ceramic markets in Hanoi. After that, the tour guide will take you on a visit to the local oldest craftsman’s house to learn about the history of this handicraft village and steps of making a handicraft pottery product.

Saying goodbye to Bat Trang, we will continue biking along Red River dyke and experience the local daily life - with your own eyes seeing “xe thồ” (pack bikes) – the local's means of transporting goods and commodities and other local means of transportation. A short trip on a local ferryboat passing the Red River to Thanh Tri Village will surely give you amazement.
