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!

We had very little cycling experience before setting off but we felt ourselves getting stronger everyday. I’d say go for it! :-)
Way to go guys! You have had quite the trip cycling through Vietnam. I hope you have some fab spa planned to indulge your tired bodies at after that feat.

We had a couple of great massages lined up after we finished! We highly recommend the 4 hand massage. Soooo good :-)
I have been really enjoying following your cycling journey through Vietnam. Can’t wait to see where you head off to next. I pinned several of these photos.

We can barely believe we made it, but it was an AMAZING journey. And the bumps… so… many.. bumps… :-p
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.
Ewww…there’s a beetle on your toothbrush! Awesome photos, guys.

Congratulations on finishing! I hope you’re now relaxing on a Costa Rican beach, cocktails in hand!

Xin chào & Cảm ơn!
Thanks so much Shi :-) We love Vietnam and definitely hope to return one day!
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.
