At 8:00 a.m., pick up from your accommodation and travel to the launch site in the western side of Hanoi. At about 9:00 a.m., begin Hanoi motorcycle tour to Mai Chau. We will hop on the motorcycles and ride for 45 minutes to get closer to the countryside, after which we will slow down and ride on back country roads to Hoa Binh city. We'll have a fantastic trip over some magnificent routes via some hill tribal communities and a nice motorbike ride along the Da river after lunch in Hoa Binh. The highlight of the first day of the tour in North Vietnam is this. At 5 p.m., we'll arrive at Mai Chau. Staying at a Thai family's home is a unique experience.
After saying our goodbyes to the host, we continue our motorbike journey across North Vietnam to Moc Chau, renowned as Vietnam's calm and lush plateau, where we will have lunch. After lunch, we'll ride our motorcycles all the way down from 1000 meters above sea level to the foot of the mountain, where we'll take a ferry across the Da River to the other side of the mountain. Let's have a wonderful motorbike ride along the river before approaching Phu Yen; it's a lovely ride between the huge river and the mountain. It's one of the highlights of our 15-day motorcycle tour in Vietnam. We arrive in town around 5:00 p.m. and stay at the hotel for the rest of the day.
It's a short motorbike ride to Son La; the morning trip takes you over twisting mountain passes, passing through numerous rural communities of Thai, Tay, and Muong people who grow maize, sugarcane, and green tea instead of rice, turning the mountains green as you pass. We will have lunch after the simple but enjoyable motorbike ride over the mountainous passes, and then rejoin the calm road to Son La, where we may stop at several local colorful markets to experience the local custom and learn more about the culture. Arrive in the city at 4:00 p.m., dismount, and walk a short distance to the Son La jail, where the renowned Vietnamese political prisoners were held by the French. The visit will assist you in learning more about the Indochina war/French conflict, in which North Vietnam played a key role for the French. This has to be the highlight of the Northern Vietnam motorcycle tour.
It's another lengthy ride with lots of pauses for photos and visits. Today's ride might be one of the best of this Northern Vietnam motorcycle trip, as it includes both on-road and off-road motorbike riding, with the scenery of the mountains changing with each kilometer. We will pass over the Pha Din pass, which is one of Vietnam's longest and most difficult mountain crossings.

In addition, we may go to the villages of the Dao, Thai, or Lu people, and if you arrive on the correct day, you might be able to witness the colorful market of the local hill tribes. We'll descend all the way down to Lai Chau after lunch in Sin Ho. It's a short trip, but it may be one of Vietnam's greatest motorcycle excursions. Finish the day in a local motel.
Start the short Sapa motorbike tour at 9:00 a.mWhen the mist has cleared, we may have the most pleasurable motorbike ride and the finest view of the O Qui Ho pass, which is one of North Vietnam's four longest and most scenic passes.

After saying our goodbyes to Sapa, we will get back on our bikes and ride all the way down to Lao Cai, where we will have the option of riding on a smooth road with a wonderful view of rice terrace fields or riding on the back, rough roads by some H'mong and Dzao villages. Because the trip begins in Sapa, at a height of 1600 meters above sea level, you will get a spectacular view of the mountain from any of the options. After a fantastic short motorbike tour from Sapa, we'll stop at the China border gate near Lao Cai for some hot coffee and a view of China from Vietnam. After Lao Cai, we continue our motorcycle tour of North Vietnam, traversing several mountain passes and backcountry roads to Xin Man, a peaceful village where we will spend the night.
We spend the night at a quiet hotel, recharging our batteries in preparation for the next epic motorbike trip to Ha Giang.
This short Hagiang motorbike tour is one of the most important days of the Northern Vietnam Motorbike Tour. Right after we start the ride, we'll undertake the challenging off-road motorbike ride to Hoang Su Phi, which is known for its magnificent terrace rice fields and bumpy rough roads. The final 30 kilometers to Ha Giang are a simple motorbike ride on a smooth road. At 5:00 p.m, We'll arrive at the hotel in Ha Giang.
The motorbike ride from Ha Giang to Dong Van is one of the most beautiful parts of this motorcycle tour in Vietnam; it offers one of the most beautiful views of mountains in North Vietnam, and the imposing view of the rock plateau will not disappoint any motorcyclists; we can stop to take pictures every few meters along the way. Aside from that, we may go visit some of the local hill tribes, such as the Lo Lo or the Hmong, to learn more about their culture and the challenges they face in their daily lives. At 5:00 p.m., the pleasant Ha Giang – Northern Vietnam motorbike trip will come to a close at the guest house in Dong Van.

The motorbike journey to Bao Lac in the afternoon is nearly entirely downhill, following the Nho Que and Gam rivers. At 4:30 p.m., the lovely day comes to a close at the hotel on the river bank of Bao Lac town.
Return to the motorcycles after breakfast and begin the motorbike journey to Cao Bang in Northeast Vietnam. The trip nearly entirely takes place on mountain routes that ascend and descend, passing through several ethnic settlements. After lunch in Cao Bang, we continue our Vietnam motorcycle tour to the north of the nation, going closer and closer to the Chinese border. We'll finish the day at 5:00 p.m. at Quang Uyen town, a tranquil town surrounded by some rustic Tay and Nung villages where you may stay in a guest home or in a stilt house with a local ethic family.
Another highlight of our 15-day motorcycle tour across North Vietnam is this. After leaving Quang Uyen, we'll ride straight north to the Vietnam-China border, where we'll see the most magnificent waterfall in Vietnam, Ban Gioc. We'll try some off-road riding near the waterfall after lunch at the falls. snapping photos of breathtaking landscape or swimming in a beautiful pool fed by the Ban Gioc waterfall's pure water. After saying our goodbyes to the Ban Gioc waterfall, we'll take a motorbike ride back to Cao Bang city, where we'll spend the night in a hotel. The motorbike journey from the fall to Cao Bang provides a spectacular mountain view; the route is not very steep, but it is peaceful and distinct from the roads we have previously traveled. It is without a doubt one of the highlights of our Vietnam motorbike tour.
The tour's second day is simple and relaxed. After breakfast in the hotel, get back on the bike and continue the motorbike ride through North Vietnam to Ba Be Ba Be Lakelake. The ride is almost entirely on smooth roads until we get close to the lake, at which point we must slow down and ride on a narrow, bumpy road while taking in the scenery of the National park. For lunch, we'll stop in the Tay people's tranquil village. After lunch, we'll go a short distance to a local dock for a brief boat trip on Ba Be Lake, Vietnam's largest natural lake. The peaceful time on the lake after a lengthy motorbike journey in Vietnam is amazing. A swim in the lake is also an option.
We'll have a fun motorbike ride to Thac Ba Lake after breakfast with the Tay family, almost on back roads. This 15-day Vietnam motorcycle tour continues with another short and peaceful motorbike ride. To approximately 3:00 p.m., we'll arrive at the quiet village of the Dzao people, park our bikes in the village, and enjoy a boat trip around Vietnam's largest man-made lake, Thac Ba. Thac Ba lake is known as Halong bay on land because of its almost 3000 islets and emerald water. It's undoubtedly another highlight of my motorcycle trip across Northern Vietnam. Finish the day about 5:00 p.m. and spend the final night of the journey with fascinating Dzao people.
We'll end our North Vietnam motorcycle trip with a brief off-road motorbike ride through the villages surrounding the lakes, attempting to stay as far away from the main roads as possible.
