Program

Day 1: Central Highlands (200 kilometers / 124.2 miles)

Pick up and depart at VietnamRider Travel office in Saigon. Your professional tour leader will help you to escape from the busy traffic by the small roads through the rubber plantations and stop by the broken bridge that used to be the part of the old HCM trail in Vietnam war, visit the Burning Tank memorial in Cu Chi, visit the secret entrance of Cu Chi tunnel at Saigon river, visit the heroic Cu Chi tunnel where you can do the gun-shooting).

Did you know who were the first men that explored the Cu Chi tunnels? It's the Australian soldiers not the U.S Army. In January 1965, a unique chapter of Australian military history was created when a young Royal Australian Engineers captain called Sandy MacGregor, encountering a Vietcong tunnel system, asked a very pertinent question - does anybody know what's down there?

Sandy's men in three field troop answered that by being the first allied soldiers to explore the Vietcong's tunnels in Cu Chi - US Army protocol was to identify the entrances and destroy them - thereby creating the legend of the Tunnel Rats. You will stay overnight at a two-star hotel at the border town.

Day 2: Challenge off-road ride (200 kilometers / 124.2 miles)

Nobody knows that VietnamRider Travel can arrange this special tour that starts from Saigon and riding only by the off-roads in south Vietnam. Today, they will prove to you by the full day with the challenge ride on the real off-roads in the south of Central Highlands, Vietnam. The temperature is getting cooler on the highlands so it will be easier to travel in the dirt and sands.

This route will take you through the plantations, forests, and high mountains, even a place where you must ride across the small river. Enjoy the good local foods and drink at the rest stop along the way. You will stay overnight at a two-star hotel at a small local town.

Day 3: Farm Stay (220 kilometers / 136.7 miles)

You will travel by some back roads through the cashew-nut farms, minority village, and the national park and to cross the southern Central Highlands. All VietnamRider Travel's Australian riders enjoyed this adventure route a lot, specially when you are somewhere along the 1,000-meter high mountains and inside deep jungles.

Today, you will stay overnight at the Farm Stay, owned by a Belgian couple, in the middle of the rice fields and coffee farms. You may stay at the private bungalows, next to a waterfall, the flower garden, and a pool. You can book the family to cook your dinner and make a barbecue party, have some cold beers and relax next to the campfire in the evening.

Day 4: The beach (150 kilometers / 93.2 miles)

After three days of hard ride on the full off-roads, today you will travel by the good road from the highlands down to the coast where you will have a good relaxing time at a resort on the beach at Mui Ne. In the morning, you will have a 100 kilometer ride through the racing road along the 1,000-meter high mountains and deep jungles. There are some minority villages on the way and the rice paddies, the dragon-fruits farms that will be good to use for the background of the panorama.

Depend on your riding skills, you can travel about 50 kilometers on the real challenge off-road through the sandy farms. In the evening, you can buy some fresh seafood, cold beers, and a good massage at local shops in Mui Ne beach. You will stay overnight at a three-star resort with private bamboo bungalows and swimming pool right on the quiet beach.

Day 5: Saigon (200 kilometers / 124.2 miles)

Your last night will be at a nightclub on the beach with some cold beers and happy hour. What else would you ask for more about this trip? As all of VietnamRider Travel's customers are really happy, having a good time with the ride on the off-roads through the beautiful countryside and that you will never find it yourselves or by any guidebooks or even with the other tour operators.
