Vietnam Motorbike Tours

Day 1: Hanoi – Vu Linh (180 km – , L, D ) Home staymotorbike tours vietnam

We meet at 8 am at our company office in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. After a short briefing session we exit Hanoi from the West end on a straight road along the Red river (Song Hong). Easy drive to on the sealed road to Thac Ba Lake and follow the little road to Vu Linh. Vu Linh is a Dzao village by the side of the lake, very friendly people and the welcome is exceptional.

Day 2: Vu Linh – Ha Giang ( 180 km – B, L, D ) Hotel stay

After breakfast, ride along the Thac Ba lake on a small road lined by palm trees and scenic mountain views to join the main road heading up to Ha Giang where we stop for the night and apply for a permit.

Day 3: Ha Giang – Dong Van ( 180 km – B, L, D ) Hotel stay

After getting the permit to ride in border areas at Ha Giang’s Immigration Police, we ride on small challenging mountain roads (but vietnam motorbike toursincredibly beautiful) on the land of colorful mountain hill-tribes.

Head up the Ma Pi Leng Pass. Here is yet another amazing place, with cloudy mountain ranges and the poetic Nho Que river winding off in the distance. Ride on a zig-zag track until Dong Van, a remote area and meet the hard-working local people here. It is inspiring to see how they survive as they manage live in the rocks. When we reach town we will have some extra time to wonder the ancient streets lined with H’mong homes of clay bricks and tiles roofs built centuries ago.

Another option is to stay in Meo Vac in a home stay or a hotel. From our experience, Dong Van is a nicer place than Meo Vac to overnight.

Day 4: Dong Van – Bao Lac ( 80 km – B, L, D ) Hotel stay

The road is still under construction and tracks what make the ride relatively long in spite of few kilometres. The landscape is amongvietnam motorbike tours the most beautiful of Vietnam, and the slow tempo is only more appreciable.

We cross the wild regions of the mythical province of Ha Giang. Stop for the night at Bao Lac, the ethnic crossroad of Northeast Vietnam. Many other ethnic groups on the two sides of the border meet at the market every Sunday.

Day 5: Bao Lac – Ba Be ( 150 km – B, L, D ) Home stay

Beautiful ride down to Ba Be. We descend from the high mountain range down to the world’s largest lake on karst stone – Ba Be lake. If time allows, take a boat cruise on this picturesque lake in about 2 hours. Overnighting with a Tay family for the night.

Day 6: Ba Be – Hanoi. ( 240 km – B, L )vietnam motorbike tours
Quite a long drive but easy (early departure is better) from Ba Be to Hanoi. The most busy part of the road is from Thai  Nguyen back to Hanoi but we believe after 5 days riding on different terrains in North Vietnam you will be alright. Arrive in Hanoi before rush hour – 5 pm. Finish your unforgettable Vietnam motorbike tour to Ha Giang arranged by Offroad Indochina – Vietnam Motorbike Tour Asia.
