Take the following recommended adventure, you will have chance to discover the beauty of the North and the Central of Vietnam with the final destination of Danang or Hoian, the perfect stopovers for a holiday.


Hanoi – Thac Ba Lake (180 km)

Different from other motorbike tour operators in Vietnam who take you to Thac Ba Lake on big and busy roads, Hello Vietnam Travel promised to give you an adventure to that destination on unique roads offering back-roads and off-roads as well as beautiful landscapes.

Arriving at Thac Ba Lake at around 4.00pm, we will spend about 1 hour for boat trip around the lake. Overnight in stilt-house of Dao people who are very hospitable, friendly, and especially good at cooking and making rice wine.


Thac Ba Lake – Sapa (210 km)

After breakfast, we will say goodbye to the kind family for a great ride along Thac Ba Lake with a chance to enjoy the nice view of mountains, green lake and immense rice fields.

Following a lunch in Pho Rang Town, we continue the motorbike adventure to Sapa, the destination of many beautiful terraced rice fields with a stop to visit the border to China.

The last 40km of the route to Sapa will take you up the road to the level of 1600 meters where the cloudy Sapa town is located. Something great is that this 40-km route is very scenic and dotted with fields and colorful hill tribes. Overnight at hotel.


Sapa – Than Uyen (110 km)

After breakfast, let’s take a short motorcycle trip around Sapa to visit some rustic villages & the local inhabitants to have an exhaustive look at Vietnamese culture and enjoy the natural beauty of Muong Hoa Valley.

Back to Sapa town for lunch and a short rest. Then, riding to Than Uyen through O Qui Ho pass, one of the longest and most beautiful passes in Northern Vietnam. Arriving in Than Uyen at around 5.00pm, we will stop for overnight here.


Than Uyen – Mu Cang Chai – Phu Yen (220 km)

At good time when we get up and be ready for next day of our motorbike adventure, we will start the ride from Than Uyen, via some other villages of hill tribes to Mu Cang Chai, another paradise of terraced rice fields.

Continuing the motorbike trip along Ho Chi Minh Trail, we will head to the next destination: Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, the home of the largest cave in the world.
