Accommodation

Vietnam Motorbiketour endeavors to select a combination of good quality hotels that reflect the character of the local area as well as being as centrally located as possible, all the while striving to keep the cost affordable. Your trip will stay in a range of hotels / guesthouses with standardized quality.

Please be aware that some hotel rooms, especially those in major urban centers or older cities, may be smaller than what you are used to in other parts of the world. Standards and ratings may also be different from your home country.

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.

If you are traveling as a couple and would prefer to have a double bed, please officially request a double room with Vietnam Motorbiketour. Vietnam Motorbiketour never presumes that two people traveling together are a couple, even if you share the same surname, unless informed otherwise.

Day 3: Hue to Phong Nha

After an early start, you take small country roads up the coast. Crossing the former border between North and South Vietnam at the 17th parallel, you arrive at the Vinh Moc tunnels, where an entire village went underground in the 1960s to survive the bombing.

After exploring the tunnels, you head to a local beach where you can cool off with a swim followed by lunch. You then head away from the coast on the eastern branch of the Ho Chi Minh Highway to Phong Nha-Khe Bang national park.

Awake to the sounds of rural Vietnam.

Day 5: Phong Nha to Khe Sanh (Ho Chi Minh trail)

Today’s ride is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Obtaining special military permission, you are able to drive the remote western branch of the Ho Chi Minh Highway through majestic limestone karst and spectacular old-growth jungle.

  • Meals: Breakfast, lunch

Optional Abseiling at Marble Mountain on day 7

You walk up Marble Mountain into the rappelling area, which takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The first rappel is a short walk from the practice area and enjoys a fantastic view of the ocean. This 22-meter line has great exposure, fantastic scenery and makes you feel like you are much higher than you actually are.

Then you do your final rappel; a monster 50-meter drop into a gaping hole so deep and dark that you can’t see the bottom. This fantastic cave rappel drops right out of the jungle down into a temple chamber. Get ready for a full-on Tomb Raider experience!
