If you’re always on the lookout for a different travel experience, cycling is a great way to burrow into a country and unearth its lesser-known sights and sounds. We uncover the most impressive biking trails around the world for cycling pros and enthusiasts alike.

Bikes and Beaches: Vietnam
Imagine whizzing down the sandy coast of Vietnam while taking in the fresh and salty sea breeze. This 1,200km route connects Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s two biggest cities, passing by stretches of beaches along Nha Trang and roads less travelled by tourists.
However, it’s no picnic by the sea. The roads vary considerably, from country lanes to twisting mountain roads, and feature natural obstacles like the Hai Van Pass, the historical point of division between North and South Vietnam.
If you’re up for conquering this journey from North to South, you can sign up with biking tours that cover accommodation, equipment and, of course, delicious Vietnamese food detours.
