What is the weather going to be like?
February is a relatively dry season for this region, but there is still a chance of rain, particularly in the northern part of Vietnam. Temperatures in the lowlands will average about 80 degrees (Saigon, Nha Trang, Hue, Hoi An, and Angkor Wat). It will be cooler in the mountains around Dalat, with an average temperature in the mid 60s. We suggest packing some warm clothes for the two days spent in the mountains, otherwise the weather will be fairly warm and humid.
What are the daily rides like?
|Rider Type | 2||Average Daily Mileage | 30|
|Terrain | hilly||Average Daily Elevation | 700|
On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Vietnam & Cambodia is best suited for our Type 2 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Type 3 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is mostly rolling hills with a few short steep hills and a few longer more gradual grades, mostly on quiet winding roads. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.
What are the options for a non-rider travel companion?
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. See Included In The Trip Price for more information.
Some non-riding options on this trip are:
- Hit the beach
- Opt to visit the spa
- Local visits to different sites
- Market visits, wander among the various local trades people
- Hire a local guide for the day
- Take a cyclo ride (someone else does the pedaling)
- Jump on the back of a Xe Om (motorbike where you sit behind the driver)
- Tai chi
