Dien Bien – Tuan Giao (595 masl) – 77 km
Cycling out of Dien Bien was great. Loads off tribal people heading into the city/market for selling their goods. Mung Ang is 40 km away from Dien Bien. Its a very smooth uphill for around 32 km. At km 32 you are 980 masl. From here its 8 km downhill to Muong Ang. From Muong Ang its all smooth downhill going to Tuan Giao.
The last 3 km there is still some minor climbing to do. Ones you are in Tuan Gia look for Hong Ky Hotel. The room comes with a small terrace. Best is the food in nearby “Hong Ky” cafe. By fat the best food in whole Vietnam.
