Ninh Binh sports some of Vietnam’s best, relaxed cycling through some of the country's most scenic terrain. Main roads are usually in good condition and tend to be quiet. There are also lots of wonderful lanes through villages and rural scenes that are perfect for getting lost.

The main sights around Ninh Binh town - Tam Coc, Trang An, Hoa Lu, Hang Mua and Bich Dong Pagoda are all easily reached by bike. Ideally you’ll leave the main roads and travel between places along picturesque country lanes. A guide can be very helpful in locating the best of these. Hotel maps tend to be confusing.

A day on your bike visiting all the main sites may see you cover 30 - 40kms on mostly flat terrain.

Most bikes for hire tend to be pretty ordinary but the cycling conditions aren’t terribly challenging either. If you want a better quality bike, check out the Thuy Anh Hotel in Ninh Binh town (55A Truong Han Sieu St, Ninh Binh). They’ve recently purchased some better quality bikes and rent them out for US$5 per day.
