Co Loa is a first ancient citadel of Viet nam, which is located 17 km in the North of Hanoi, with beautiful rice paddy fields, Old villages, series of pagodas & temples. Especially with its unique vestige “Three rings of citadel”. It is one of the closest place, where you can see the real countryside of Northern Vietnam.

08:00AM, depart from hotel. Leave behind the hustle & bustle of the city to the outskirt where a small village locates, on the left bank of the Red river- Bac Bien Village. Arrive in local guide’s house. Welcomed coffee, tea and snacks. Tour guide gives a briefing session and self-introduction and about his village, tour, bikes.

Start pedaling through small alleys of Bac Bien village to the Duong river’s bank. Then take a local boat ferry to cross the river to its left bank. Ride a bike along the dike, from villages to villages, where we can see many traditional typical houses; pagodas, temples, local market and be caught in the beautiful rice paddy fields, gardens of vegetables and corns.

We have a rest at a “local bar” in village to have a drink & get interesting historical story about An Duong Vuong’s dynasty (over 2000 thousand years ago)

Pedal through some other villages to a dike of the Red river, cross 2 villages outside of the dyke. We come in a local house in traditional style, have a conversation with the villagers to understand more about their lives, works. Cycling on the dyke along the Red river, we will see the meeting point of 2 rivers. We stop under an old tree by the river for drinks, snacks, and photos. Heading back to the ferry.
