Cycling around Ninh Bình
If you like calm, authenticity and small quiet villages, cycling is one of the must things to do in Ninh Binh. Ninh Binh is quiet and you can find small peaceful villages, far from the noise of big cities. If you like biking, dont hesitate, you can do small or big rides. You can freely cycle the following path, however it would be more wonderful to have a tour guide. He or she can be both a translator and a wikipedia for you.
During your bike rides, you will be able to admire the landscape which is beautiful and natural. But also meet the local people when you will cross villages. You will see, Vietnamese people are very friendly and will be happy to help you, don't hesitate if you ever need help to find your way.
Tips for cycling trip:
It is a very nice experience but don't forget to take everything you need with you like good shoes for example, water to cool you down if it is very sunny or waterproof clothes or umbrella in case of heavy rain.
If you are not in good physical condition or if you have any health problems, don't forget to tell your travel agent so they can discuss whether the activities are suitable for you.
You can rent a bike at your hotel or at a small local store, sometimes the bikes are free by the hotel.
It is of course possible to do the tours by motorcycle. The roads are accessible and pleasant for bikes and motorcycles but in my opinion, you won't have time to admire the beautiful landscape if you drive a motorcycle.
