What are the roads like?

All the roads we cycle on are sealed, although there will be some rougher sections with potholes etc. The Vietnamese are rapidly improving their road infrastructures so you may encounter some construction. Although Footprint choose off-the-beaten track with quieter roads for our tours but it is hard to get away from people, & you will still encounter some traffic. This traffic will include bicycles, motor bikes, rickshaws, buffalo carts & motorized vehicles and buses/trucks - this is we think interesting for you to see. Traffic is heavier in the towns & cities, and in certain sections on days one & two. However, the tour is designed so that if you are uncomfortable about biking in the urban areas or on busier sections of the road you can use Footprint's support vehicle.
