How much rent a bicycle Hue
When you arrive in Hue, you will see bicycles everywhere. Cycling is a popular mode of transport for tourists wanting to explore the Hue and for locals to get around. There are two main hire options: fixed gear town bikes and mountain bikes.
The majority of hostels and hotels will have bikes that can be rented either free or for a very small fee—usually less than 25,000 VND (1 USD) a day. They can also be hired from countless places around town.
These bikes are great if you are planning on cycling around Hue’s Old Town or to the beach. However, because they don’t have any gears or suspension, they are not so good if you’re going further afield. If you’re planning on cycling into the countryside or anywhere outside of the city of Hue, then we definitely recommend getting a mountain bike.
