Hoi An Countryside

Overview

Cycling around Hoi An is one of the most popular things to do in the UNESCO city of Vietnam. But do you know that the surrounding countryside is as excellent as the city itself?

Within a short ride out of the city center, you can mingle with nature and enjoy a glimpse into the Vietnamese country life. By the rivers, you can see fishermen checking and reeling in their nets. Meanwhile, in the paddy fields, farmers and water buffalo are working endlessly. If you’re cycling at the right time, you have a chance to observe huge mounts of rice grains drying out in the street. Quite a view for those who spend their entire life in a city, right? And keep your eyes on the road since you may be distracted by the stunning views of the lush greenery and rustic local life that Vietnamese countryside has to offer.

On this ride, you’re going to loop around the Hoi An countryside before returning to the city from a different way. The route runs out to the beach and turns off the main road between the rice paddies on the way back. As you’re looking at the map, you can see there are many branches off the main road that you can use to expand your exploration.

This route is less than 15km, so it can be done within a few hours if you’re fit enough.

Terrain

The land around Hoi An is pretty flat which makes it an easy and low-intensity cycle.

Access

To start this ride, head to Hai Ba Trung Street which is one of the main streets of Hoi An. This route will take you all the way to the beach. The terrain isn’t challenging at all, so it’ll be a comfy ride.

Food and drink

Vietnamese street food never ceases to amaze everyone. One of the most delicious dishes is Banh Mi which can be easily bought from food vendors. It’s great for breakfast, fantastic for lunch, and ideal for a quick dinner! You can grab one in the morning or save it later for mid-day during your lunch break beside the beach. You can also find some eateries along the beach front, but the price may be high. So make sure to bring a comfortable amount of cash with you.
