HEAVEN AND EARTH BICYCLE TOURS
The Heaven and Earth Countryside Bicycle Tour, the brainchild of M. Pascal, provides an off-the-beaten-track experience where you’ll likely meet rice wine makers, pig farmers, craftsmen from Kim Bong’s boatyards and war veterans along the way. An adventure for all the family, the highlight is the opportunity to pilot the area’s unique bamboo basket boats.
The tour wends down small lanes and across tricky river crossings. It explores Cam Kim Island’s massive palm tree stands by snaking waterways and dives down spooky back alleyways. It also provides memorable snapshots of the island’s traditional people and their craft.

As well as the fairly leisurely countryside tour Heaven and Earth Bicycle Tours offers several other tantalizing excursions, catering for all tastes. Consider the ‘Real Vietnam Tour’ where you cycle back in time to peasant life as it has existed for centuries. Or for more serious bikers, how about the mountain bike tour – ‘Just for the Ride’ – or the Adventure Tour which involves a full day’s cycling and includes the amazing Cham temples at My Son. Then there’s the 2-day Homestay Tour where you stay overnight with a Vietnamese family. Truly something for everyone.
