Booking code of this tour: NC201
Day 1: Hanoi – Song Thao. ~160 km, ~6 h.
Today is the first day of this Song Thao 2 days, home staying by bike. Before starting to ride, we will have a short briefing to let you know about the rules. In addition, the guide will show you how to understand him by his body language. We start around 9.30am after the rush hours.
Ride to Song Thao via Hoa Binh, cross the barrage, and then head up north following the dyke road (west side of Black river). In fact, Song Thao is a very small village lost in the hills on west bank of Black river. In particular, this is the place where we grow lacquer trees to collect the precious substance called lacquer.
We are welcome in the house of our friends. You meet Kinh (ethnic Vietnamese). Finally, we propose to stay in the house of the two “uncles”, direct descendant of the ancestor who discovered the property of this tree and the way to use it, about four hundreds years ago (quite recently compared to China who knew about lacquer few thousands years ago).
Day 2: Song Thao – Hanoi. ~180 km, ~6 h.
We spend the morning to see the farm-work of people on the field. Then ride back to Hanoi on nice and peaceful country roads.
We arrive in Hanoi around 3 to 4pm, before rush hours.
