Meet your guide at your centrally located hotel in Hue, then start your bike ride near the village of Vinh Ve by Tam Giang Lagoon. Pedal at a relaxed pace with plenty of time to enjoy the views—you’ll cover 7.5 miles (12 km) during the 1.5-hour ride. Take in the traditional lines of historical pavilions, elegant remnants of pre-war Vietnam that survived extensive bombing.
Leave the city behind for picturesque rice fields—alternately green or gold, depending on the season—and watch farmers at work in their paddies. When you reach Chuon Lagoon, trade your bicycle for a seat on a boat. Learn about daily life and culture as you explore, stopping to visit the houses that local people build on stilts, elevated above the surface of the water. Relax over a grilled seafood dinner with Vietnamese beer, then finish the day at your Hue hotel around 7pm.
