JJ’s Mystery Tour will take you to areas in this wonderful country that just are not part of the ordinary tourist trail; Well, at least not the foreign tourist trail. You will see Vietnam as the locals see it with its stunning agricultural landscapes, the green of the jungle as the road rises to the central highlands, and the starkness of the desert landscape where the sands wisp across the roads in a relentless effort to reclaim what was originally theirs.
Airport transfer included: Cam Ranh Airport
You will be staying at various accommodations at different hotels. At the end of each day, you will be staying in clean and comfortable private room accommodation. Hotels will vary in standard but all will offer a comfortable bed, a warm shower, and an opportunity for a cold drink and time to discuss the day's adventure.
So what’s so mysterious about this tour? You’ve seen the photos before of the rice paddies, you’ve seen the photos of the water buffalo, and maybe you’ve even been to Vietnam and visited Sapa and Ha Long Bay.
But have you ridden Vietnam? Have you seen Vietnam as only the locals can show you? JJ has put together a taster, something to whet the appetite. This tour will take you to areas in this wonderful country that just are not part of the ordinary tourist trail - well, at least not the foreign tourist trail.
You will see Vietnam as the locals see it with its stunning agricultural landscapes, the green of the jungle as the road rises to the central highlands, and the starkness of the desert landscape where the sands wisp across the roads in a relentless effort to reclaim what was originally theirs.
You’ll turn a bend and be surprised by the oases secreted in the middle of all the barrenness. You will turn another corner and catch a glimpse of pristine beaches and coastal bays where the fishing fleets await their time. Fish farms, salt farms, rice farms all taking their place in the landscape as you ride on roads that will bring a smile to the face of the casual rider or the rider who enjoys the fun of roads that twist and turn for kilometer after kilometer.
You will be on bikes that seem to have been built for such a ride. Some describe the Honda XR as the perfect touring bike for Vietnam - light, strong, easy to ride, and more than capable with a single rider or two. No day will be a tar-bashing exercise and at the end of each ride, you will relax at your hotel, maybe having a drink or two before a delicious dinner.
Accommodations are clean and comfortable, often amongst the best of what is available in the towns you are visiting. These are not long tours but are for those who don’t have a lot of time to give or who want to see something more than what else is on offer. Beaches, mountains, deserts, jungles, waterfalls, ethnic villages with their handicrafts, rural areas that only see the occasional outsider; These are all part of JJ’s Mystery Tour.
Your guides know all the best places to be. No one is rushed and no one is left out. You will usually start in the relaxing beach town of Nha Trang and enjoy the area before you venture out for the tour proper. Some parts of the ride will have typical town traffic but then, as you venture further, the other road users become less and less, allowing you to relax and take in all that you encounter.
You will not be exhausted by the ride (typical days are between 90 and 150 kilometers) and will get to enjoy stop offs along the way for that special photo or just to stretch the legs, have a drink, and enjoy the scenery. These mystery tours are trips in themselves or just tasters for something a bit longer- tours that will show you even more of this vibrant, beautiful Vietnam.
If you have the time, before or after the tour, consider a few days rest and recreation in Nha Trang. JJ can assist you with island tours and some diving or snorkeling or just make sure your accommodation is what you want as you explore for yourself the beaches, shops, and markets of this rapidly evolving seaside town.
Upon your arrival, LBMT will pick you up from the airport. Then, the mystery begins for your six days of motorcycle tour through the unknown parts of Vietnam, where you will discover new things that tourists rarely get to see.
The motorcycle tour will take place in the less known parts of Vietnam.

All towns will have their own unique aspects whether it is a cultural show performed by one of the many minority peoples, night markets, scenic sunrises, or a game of billiards and pool at the local hall. Take time to enjoy any or all of these and you will begin to experience Vietnam as the locals do.
Some of the hotels you will be staying at provide various in-house services.
