This route takes you from the charming coastal city of Phan Rang to Cam Ranh on Vietnam’s south-central coastline.
This 77km promontory ride is set alongside the East Sea and forms the Nui Chua National Park. A remote and untouched park, with considerable flora and fauna, including the black Asian bear and the black mountain goat. Up until recently, the area only had local dirt roads, but with a new coastal road now in place, the area is open and becoming more and more popular.
Go soon, before it’s splendor has been lost!

This national park was an absolute highlight for us, and actually one of the places we definitely want to go back and cycle. Surprisingly sections of this park look very similar to Europe, with tiny fishing villages and cliffs that could be set in Sicily or Croatia. That being said, you can turn around another bay and see tropical, dense jungle, making you feel like you’re in Hawaii! This national park is a must do, and one of our favorite rides in Vietnam.
