Joseph Steel Cycling on the China - Yunnan tour with redspokes

Joseph Steel, Rosenheim, Germany
China - Yunnan

Joseph Steel from Rosenheim, Germany rates our China - Yunnan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This cycling trip was truly amazing. The cycling was hard, with many long, high climbs although most came with long, fast descents. The scenery was outstanding and something of a surprise. I wasn't really expecting it to be so good! 

The accommodation throughout the trip, although it varied in standard, was always good - hot water in the shower, plenty of electric points for charging, and wifi in nearly all our rooms. In particular, the hotel in Shaxi was excellent.

Our guide was a great help - very knowledgeable and keen to share information about the places we were in and give his views about China. He took us to many different restaurants for some very good food.

 Kathrin Wieczorek from Rosenheim, Germany rates our China - Yunnan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was probably the most scenic cycling tour I have ever done. Yunnan is simply stunning. I wish more people would go.
The trip is tough with very little flat roads, but the climbs are really rewarding with spectacular views. We were a very small group (n=3), and together with Jia and Ken it felt like 5 friends on the road together. What a lovely team they are. Everything was planned perfectly, from the arrival to the hotels, luggage transfer, food ordered, the daily cycling and the few but well deserved rests. I highly recommend this trip!
Couldn't have a better guide than Jia who also provides valuable insight into the local culture. Bikes provided are good, and food is plenty and (for Chinese standards) quite varied. Customers should bring their own snacks, as shopping is sometimes non-existent. Bars are essential as they are not easily available even in bigger shops, and the long climbs are energy zapping. Some gatorade powder or similar also recommended, as only water will be provided. Must like Asian food, otherwise will come back very thin. Food is less spicy than expected. One or two chances for Western food the entire trip.

This is an extraordinary trip with challenging uphill cycling but you are rewarded with stunning scenery, adventurous cycling, unbelievable terrain from mountains to rivers. An insight into how the people live in the countryside in north east Vietnam are so reliant on their annual crops and community. Phong is an amazing guide and such good company. He makes everything seem effortless but you know there is a lot of work behind the scenes. Halong Bay was a great addition. Very touristy but so beautiful and the overnighting on the junk was a great way to end the trip. Thanks very much.

Diane Tenbuuren from Hope Valley, England, UK rates our Vietnam N.E cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

We are back from a wonderful holiday with Red Spokes in Vietnam and Cambodia. We had the best guides we could wish for, Le Trung Keen in Vietnam and Art Ourn & Phea (Sim) Ousaphea in Cambodia and fabulous drivers/back up support - a lot of knowledges, very kind, everything you asked they arranged, nothing was too much or impossible. We loved it! Despite the weather, rain at the first three days, we enjoyed the Vietnam N.E. tour.

Magnificent scenery when the clouds were gone and not much traffic on most of the tour – it felt like we did get to see unspoiled Vietnam. And the culture tour in and around Siem Reap was great! We did get to see Angkor Wat and other nice temples, seen how the mushrooms are grown, visited the village on stilts and were moved by the personal account of our guide at the war museum. And this all with the most beautiful tracks to cycle on!

Marie Clune from Raworth, Australia rates our China - Yunnan cycling holiday at 4 out of 5

I enjoyed this tour because of the challenge of the hills especially at altitude, the scenery and our group. The accommodation and food was good throughout the trip and Tony our guide did a great job at selecting the foods to suit different dietery needs. The picnic lunches in quiet little spots off the main roads were also a nice change from Chinese food and eating in restaurants. The support crew were always there to help out if anyone needed a ride or drink as well as prepare the lunches. Tony also had great knowledge of the different minority groups their foods, culture and history.
The bikes were brand new and had all the gears needed for the hills. On Day 2 it was amazing to have snow falling as we rode across all 3 passes.

We cycled through a unique landscape in the Geo park. Kien made sure we had everything we needed and was excellent at doing first aid on my bruising after a fall. We had a great time.

I had not realised that there had been another long war with the Chinese since the American departure. Such a beautiful country with gracious people but a tragic recent history.

This was my first redspokes experience even though I've been on several cycling tours before. This NE Vietnam tour was certainly one of the most memorable and exceeded all my expectation (not that I had that much). First of all, my one other tour buddy and I were spoiled rotten with all the extra attention. Second, our tour leader Phong was everything you've read in these testimonials and much much more...I felt I'd learnt just that much more about Vietnam despite having visited this beautiful country many times either on business or for pleasure. One other fun fact, apparently I had the honour of being Phong's first customer from hustle bustle Hong Kong which made this experience even more special. Well done redspokes!
