Aside from the beautiful expanse of emerald green rice fields, life along the canals, this trips ends up at one of the most magnificent temples near Hanoi, Bu Thap Pagoda, which according to academics, was the first Buddhist center in Vietnam. For extended adventure, we also have overnight trips and consider combining this trip with two World Heritage Sites, one the prize of Southeast Asia: the grand Khmer temples at Angkor in neighboring Cambodia, and our kayak trip in the nearby karst wonderland of Halong Bay. In the far south, we offer a 3-day cycling trip in the vibrant Mekong Delta.
This cycling day trip cuts through the richest farmland in the north of Vietnam, crisscrossed by the many canals of the Red River Delta. The rich scenery rolls by as you bicycle between the fields of rice, maize, tomatoes, cabbages, and mulberry. Traditional rice villages abound and we'll stop to park our bikes and meet families of the area. We'll also visit a village where they grow mulberry worms, which are fed with mulberry leafs. After twenty days the worms transform into silk moths which build cocoons. It is from these cocoons that villagers produce silk. The footpaths are tranquil and provide scenic cycling.
Bach Ninh is unique in Vietnam as it is here that Buddhism came to Vietnam, even earlier than to China. Over two thousand years ago, the first monks from Tibet came to Vietnam to preach Buddhism, which took center in Bac Ninh region. At the beginning of the trip, your guide will lead you through ancient villages and visit its pagodas, temples, and communal houses that existed form this period. In the late afternoon, return to Hanoi fro dinner.
