Joining a bicycle tour is a fun, inexpensive, and healthy way of exploring Nha Trang’s tranquil countryside. The six-kilometre-long coastal town has plenty of historical sites that are all grouped close together, so cycling is a popular way to get around town for both the locals and tourists.
Group bicycle tours (with a minimum of two cyclists and maximum of 10) cost approximately USD65, though prices may vary from one tour operator to another. Each tour is inclusive of English-speaking guide, entrance fee, hotel transfers, meals, cycling equipment, and drinking water.
A full-day cycling tour of the countryside offers a scenic route along the coastline, visiting Po Nagar Cham Towers and The White Buddha, Chong Rocks, Ngoc Son Pagoda, before making a stop at Ninh Ich Village. You can also chat with friendly villagers and learn about their daily routine of cultivating rice and making local handicrafts such as sleeping mats, conical hats, and incense. The final stop is at Ba Ho Waterfalls, where you can enjoy recreational activities such as hiking and swimming before heading back to Nha Trang City.
If you’re pressed for time, go for the half-day tour of Nha Trang City which stops at must-visit sites such as Nha Trang Cathedral, Long Son Pagoda, Po Nagar Cham Towers, followed by Chong Rock and Dam Market. Make sure you bring along sufficient cash as you need to pay entry and parking fees at popular landmarks such as Long Son Pagoda and Po Nagar Cham Towers.
There are plenty bicycle tour operators in Nha Trang, though the most popular one is Vietnam Active, which also provides yoga classes, rafting and kayaking along the Cai River. If you prefer exploring Nha Trang at your own pace, there are bicycle rental shops that charge a daily rate between VND 40,000 and VND 70,000.
