Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Biking & Hiking in an Emerging World

Your journey through Vietnam will probably be unlike any other travel experience. The people you'll meet and places you'll visit will likely stay with you for a very long time. As wonderfully fulfilling as travel is in this region, it's not always easy. These are developing countries and even something as simple as crossing the road can be a challenge.

Our itineraries and Trip Leaders remove as many obstacles and inconveniences as possible, making your next extraordinary encounter always within reach. Of course, we can't remove haze and noise from the air, or replace a poorly maintained road. But if you can be flexible and approach the region with an open mind, you'll enjoy your trip to the fullest!

Due to the varied road conditions on our biking routes, we have specially fitted our bikes in Vietnam to maximize your comfort and control. In central Vietnam, you'll have the choice of Backroads bicycles with upright or drop handlebars. In the Mekong Delta, you'll have a local bicycle with upright handlebars, which are safer and more comfortable over the area's mixed-surface roads.
