Tour de Vietnam: Cycling Southern Vietnam

This post was last updated on August 6th, 2014

Welcome to our last installment of Tour de Vietnam, where we share photos taken from the cycling lane. (In case you missed it, you can check out our snapshots from the North and Central region as well.) A massive thank you to everyone who has commented, tweeted, sent words of encouragement and virtual high-fives, and basically kept us inspired throughout our trip. Cycling Vietnam sure wasn’t easy, and if it’s wasn’t for you we might have found ourselves on the first bus barreling past. Seriously, you guys rock!

This is our last installment of Tour de Vietnam, but we have an extensive post cram-packed with anything you could possibly want to know about cycling Vietnam coming at ya on Thursday. We are covering everything from how to buy bikes to cycling itineraries to where we slept and how we found toilets. If you have specific questions you want answered, send them our way and we will address them.

Again, thank you for joining us on our journey. Hope to have you along for many more! And now, here’s a glimpse of Southern Vietnam!

    • Thanks! We still can’t believe we actually made it :-p

  1. Such amazing pictures, I’m inspired to bike around Asia now… Maybe I should get in better shape first though ;-) Thanks for sharing this!

    • We had very little cycling experience before setting off but we felt ourselves getting stronger everyday. I’d say go for it! :-)

    • We had a couple of great massages lined up after we finished! We highly recommend the 4 hand massage. Soooo good :-)

    • Thanks so much for the pins and thanks for following along! It has been quite the ride :-p

  2. Yeah, you made it! I know there were bumps in the road along the way, but it looks like you had an incredible time and experienced some beautiful, amazing things. Can’t wait to hear about the rest of your journey!

    • We can barely believe we made it, but it was an AMAZING journey. And the bumps… so… many.. bumps… :-p

  3. What an incredible feat! And those photos are amazing. It’s not everyone who gets to experience Vietnam in such a personal, close-up way.

    • When we started we debated on doing a multi-country, fast paced tour or a slower, one country exploration. We ultimately decided to do the slow, full on Vietnam experience and wouldn’t have changed a thing.

  4. Ewww…there’s a beetle on your toothbrush! Awesome photos, guys.

    • Thanks! Needless to say that toothbrush ended up in the trash :-p

    • Thanks Heather! We haven’t made it to the beach yet, but it is certainly coming :)

  5. welldone dudes! You’ve made a wonderful journey throughout our beloved Vietnam!
    There are more routes awaiting you to explore. Once you cycling in Vietnam, you would love us more than the others!
    Xin chào & Cảm ơn!

    • Thanks so much Shi :-) We love Vietnam and definitely hope to return one day!

  6. Would you be able to do part of this trip with a (very fit and strong) 16 year old and not as strong 13 year old? Obviously we wouldnt do the whole trip but if you were to take it on for say 5-7 days which part would you do, taking into consideration elevation and traffic.
