Dutch online travel agency Booking.com has revealed the leading six best places in the world for visitors looking to go on a cycling vacation, with the results based on a survey of travelers.
Hanoi is named among top six global cycling destinations
According to the website, the capital is renowned for its centuries-old architecture, lakes, parks, and over 600 temples and pagodas, offering a network of fantastic cycling paths that allow travelers to explore the area amongst locals on bicycles and scooters.
“Visitors can park up in the city’s colorful Old Quarter and refuel on delicious Vietnamese street food such as beef noodle soup and shrimp cakes,” says Booking.com.
For those who prefer taking a day trip out of the city, the website recommends a Tour of Hoa Lu with Boat & Bike Ride that will allow them to explore the former imperial city, followed by a traditional sampan sail alongside rice fields and a leisurely cycle around a local village.
Other ideal cycling destinations listed by Booking.com include Uyuni in Bolivia, Valencia in Spain, Moab in the United States, Riva del Garda in Italy, and Carretera Austral in Chile.
The survey was commissioned by Booking.com and conducted among a sample of 48,413 respondents across 31 markets globally.
Respondents were required to have traveled at least once for business or leisure over the past 12 months. In addition, they also must be planning to travel this year and be either the primary decision maker or involved in the decision making process in their journey.
The survey was taken online and took place in January.
