Itinerary

Day 1: Nha Trang to Da Lat (140 kilometers / 87 miles)

The tour starts with pick up and departure from your hotel. You will travel on small roads to the countryside of Nha Trang and visit the Cham temple, the old Japanese bridge, the sleeping mats making, the rice papers making, the rice noodles making, the conical hats making, the rice fields, the Gia-rai ethnic minority village, and the Linh Phuoc temple with the Buddha statue made by thousands of flowers.

The statue has been recognized by the Guinness records book in 2010. You will enjoy the ride on the Omega Pass, one of the most beautiful roads in Vietnam, at 1500 meters altitude, with many waterfalls and sightseeing stops. Overnight stay will be at a two-star hotel in Da Lat.

Day 2: Farm stay in Da Lat (150 kilometers / 93 miles)

Continue to explore Da Lat countryside, visiting coffee plantations, the weasel coffee farm, the silk weaving factory, the mushroom farms, the Pongour (the second biggest waterfall in south Vietnam), and the Kho minority village. You can also test your riding skills on an approximately 50-kilometer off-road trail.

You will do a homestay at a farm owned by a Belgian couple. Overnight stay will be in private bungalows, next to a waterfall, with a flower garden and pool. You can book the family to cook dinner and make a barbecue party, so you can enjoy a cold beer and relax next to a campfire in the evening.

Day 3: Mui Ne beach (150 kilometers / 93 miles)

You will have the chance to travel on this adventure road with beautiful landscape, through high mountains, deep jungles, and minority villages, some off-road. From the highland, you will run down the beach with white sand dunes, through the cashew-nut farms, dragon fruit farms, fishing villages, and arrive at the blue ocean in Mui Ne. Overnight stay will be at a resort with swimming pool on the beach.

Day 4: The Hochiminh Trail at sea (160 kilometers / 99 miles)

Most people would ride from Mui Ne to Saigon on the highway, which is full of traffic and boring. Your own road will be the hidden Hochiminh Trail at sea, the second part of the historic Hochiminh trail along the mountain between Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.

Along the way, you will also visit the famous Long Tan Cross, which is the old battlefield of the Australian army in south Vietnam. Overnight stay will be at a hotel in a small local town, none touristy. It used to be the town where all Australian soldiers would spend their weekends in the 1960's.

Day 5: Saigon (150 kilometers / 93 miles)

After visiting the salt fields in the morning, you will travel to the west, through rubber plantations, and visit the heroic Rung Sac tunnel. You will take a boat trip to cross a part of Mekong Delta to enter Saigon.
