When to go:
We were there in February, when clouds often smother the hills and
temperatures hovered in the 50s and 60s fahrenheit. Vietnam is a country
of microclimates, but the best months in the far north are probably March
through June, when sun is common.September through November are
cooler, not as wet as midsummer nor as cold as winter.

went out a few times, and my brakes were reversed (right lever controlled
the front brake) — you should bring your own bike. He also rents a variety
of mountain and touring bikes.Cyclocross bikes with strong wheels
or stout touring bikes would be perfect on the roads in Ha Giang.
