Countryside Bicycle Tour and Tan My Village - Half Day
Today’s tour will begin at 08:00 or 13:30. See a different, more authentic side of the imperial capital with this half day Hue cycling tour. Transfer out of the city and hop on the bikes to pedal along quiet rural lanes. Cross through spectacular landscapes with rice paddies as far as the eye can see and distant mountains framing the scenery. Bike through small villages, capturing scenes of traditional rural life and stopping to chat to farmers or other friendly locals.
Make a stop in Tan My, a unique village where huge houses and villas line the streets. Built by Vietnamese who fled the country after the American war, Tan My seems out of place in this otherwise traditional region. Take a closer look at the colossal tombs, whose intricate carvings and architecture reflect influences of Confucian, Buddhist and Catholic styles.
Continue meandering through the countryside, looping back toward Hue and arriving in the city in the last light of day. Watch the sun set over the Perfume River and surrounding rice paddies, a perfect way to wrap up a fabulous bike ride.
