As the capital of Vietnam for almost a thousand years, Hanoi is considered to be the cultural center of Vietnam; every dynasty has left behind their imprint. Even when the nation's capital moved to Hue under the Nguyen dynasty in 1802, the city of Hanoi continued to flourish, especially after the French took control in 1888 and modeled the city's architecture to their tastes, lending an important aesthetic to the city's rich stylistic heritage. The city boasts more than 1,000 years of history that has been well preserved. On this one-day tour, we’ll start in the morning with a quick drive to Bat Trang pottery village. There, we’ll unload the bikes and begin cycling around the village, stopping to meet a craftsman in his workshop. He will show you know how to make pottery and you’ll have an opportunity to make something for yourself. Afterward, we’ll continue cycling from Bat Trang to Dong Ho. We’ll take a scenic route and pass the beautiful rice fields of the Red River Delta. Dong Ho is famous for its block-printed pictures. We’ll pay a visit to Mr. Che, a craftsman recognized by the state as the “Golden hand man”. We’ll enjoy a local lunch with his family. Then, we’ll cycle 8 km more from Dong Ho to But Thap pagoda, one of the largest pagodas in northern Vietnam. We’ll spend about an hour visiting the pagoda before loading up the bikes for our return to Hanoi.
