Travelers looking for a warm and sunny holiday during the winter months should look no further than Ciclismo Classico’s “Vietnam Splendor” cycling tour happening December: 12/22/13 - 1/1/2014. A land of striking beauty, Vietnam is peppered with pagodas, French colonial mansions, vast white sand beaches, thatched bamboo huts, and Technicolor sunsets. Guests will experience this beautiful land from the seat of a bicycle, the main form of travel for most Vietnamese, peddling through bustling villages, along seashores, and into mountainous terrain on a southward route from Hanoi in the Red River Delta to Saigon. This is a cultural encounter, laden with boat rides, decadent cuisine, visits with local historians, cooking classes, and lots of cycling.

“This is culturally-rich tour with visits to a traditional water puppet theater, a Buddhist shrine, as well as encounters with thousands of cultural and historical artifacts from the Dinh, Ly, Tran and Le dynasties,” said Hefferon. “Guests will experience 200+ miles of epic road cycling that will give them priceless bragging rights and a lifetime of memories.”
