The quiet country lanes and picturesque monuments make Hue an ideal place for cycling. This full-day tour is a mix of less visited routes and must-see sites: let you wander through this city of galleries of Vietnam’s history and then explore the other side of Hue, the less touristic one, to explore rural life and country lanes. The tile-roofed Thanh Toan Bridge is an ancient architectural remain with highly historic and cultural values and a tourist attraction. In many guidebooks, the bridge is referred to as the “Japanese Bridge” since it bears some stylistic resemblance to another small wooden bridge in nearby Hoian. On the way to the bridge, we will go through the countryside of peaceful villages. You can take pictures of buffalos, cows, and farmers in the rice field and taste local food.

Best way to discover Hue countryside

Amazing tour out of the imperial city of Hue, see the idyllic life of the people and the village scene with our lovely guide, he told us a lot about the history of the location and Hue too, he was very enthusiastic and helpful.
If you stay more than 1 day in Hue, it is worth spending time on this tour.
