The Red River, starting from Yunnan Province in China, travels its course through northwestern China, North Vietnam and rinse out into the East Vietnam Sea. The 1200km river carries along a large quantity of silt which helps to create the huge fertile delta in North Vietnam.

Thanks to the fertile land, the wet rice civilization started in the Red River Delta very early, over five thousand years ago. This helped to shape up the core of the Vietnamese culture nowadays...

Biking the Red River Delta is a one-day adventure tour to discover Vietnam slowly  by bicycle.
