Although Vietnam is a developing country and you will visit some remote places, the quality of the accommodation has improved greatly. In small towns, you will be staying at local private guest houses. The rooms are double and are provided with air conditioning, a private bathroom with hot water, and mosquito nets on each bed.

In some locations, the local homestays are available and the sleeping arrangements are made usually in a house on stilts, all in one room. Each person will have a mattress, a pillow, and mosquito nets, and will be sharing a toilet or shower.

Program

On this tour, you will do many exciting things outlined in the highlights and much more. There is no set itinerary because it depends on the level of your experience and weather conditions. Therefore, Free Bird Adventures will take care of all the minor planning so you can relax and experience the unprecedented adventure of the north.

Free Bird Adventures will introduce you to the glory of Northeast, motorbike through karst pinnacles erupt from the rice paddies, forested mountains, and colorful ethnic markets to create a biker’s playground. Your heart will stop beating. It is that awesome.

Even though many roads in the mountains are surfaced, you will still be able to get close to dangerous cliffs and experience steep, narrow off-roads, bridges, overpasses, and mud. During the right season, you will be as high in the mountains and you feel will like driving through the clouds.

In this tour, Free Bird Adventures will try to show you more amazing place like Ha Giang Province, so, they made a plan ride from Hanoi then take the overnight train from Lào Cai City (China border) back to Hanoi to save time and spend less time in the heavy and boring traffic in the city. The Northeast is the perfect place to ride for who has less than 10 days in Vietnam.

Day 8 of the tour will be the day you arrive in Hanoi and there will be no further activities planned for the day.

This tour provides you with 3 motorcycles which are Honda CRF 250cc, Honda XR 150cc, Honda Win 110cc. The Honda Win 110cc is for lack experience riders. If you don't really feel comfortable or confident on the big bike, this bike is made for you.
