Rooms are en-suite and either twin- or triple-share, depending on what you have booked. If you are a solo traveler, you will always be sharing a room with someone of the same sex otherwise you can pay a supplement to possess a single room.

Day 1: Hanoi to Phu Yen (160 kilometers / 99 miles)

Start this special motorbike tour in northern Vietnam with a short ride to Phu Yen. You start the motorbike ride from the western outskirt of Hanoi, strive to be on a quiet and small road as long as possible to get away from busy traffic.

After a two-hour ride, you will be right in the mountain area with countryside roads between green rice and tea fields. Lunch is in little town Thu Cuc after passing a small corner of Ba Vi National Park. You arrive in Phu Yen town at about 4:30 p.m. Get the room and enjoy a short walk around the peaceful town. Overnight in Phu Yen.

Day 2: Phu Yen to Mai Chau (150 kilometers / 93 miles)

After breakfast in the hotel, you will have another short and enjoyable motorbike tour in the mountain area of Vietnam. Right after the town, you will motorcycle along the Da River on the winding road until the Da River Pier.

Put all the bikes on the ferry and start the great ride on another side of the river. You will go all the way up from 300 meters to 1000 meters above sea level.

This northern Vietnam motorbike tour offers you plenty of breathtaking mountain views. You will stop in Moc Chau plateau for lunch. After that, you will enjoy a great Vietnam motorbike tour on the forgotten French road built in the 1920s. The roadshows you plenty of picturesque views and offers us a lot of chance to visit colorful and happy ethnic people.

You will get to Mai Chau at about 4 p.m., and spend the rest time of the day to walk around the villages of the white Thai people who live in the houses on stilts, or walk on the rice field to see the life of the local and learn how to plant or harvest the rice. Overnight in Maichau.

Day 3: Mai Chau to Hanoi

There are many ways to ride back to Hanoi from Mai Chau. Please choose one of the two different roads below:

Option 1: Motorbike tour on the old French road along the Da River (190 kilometers / 118 miles)

You will go back to the road No 6 and take a turn to small and less traveled French road that leads you going along the Black river lake. The view here is like in Ha Long Bay. This is a good motorbike tour back to Hanoi that Vietnam Motorbiketour strongly recommends.

Option 2: Motorbike tour on Ho Chi Minh trail back to Hanoi (240 kilometers / 149 miles)

Vietnam Motorbike Tours suggests you take the option 2 if you are experienced motorbike riders. There are more interests on this road, especially you will have a chance to have a great motorbike tour on Ho Chi Minh trail. However, it is a longer and busier road. The guide will count the time to be in Hanoi before rush hours and finish the short but best northern Vietnam motorbike tour safely.
