North Vietnam Motorbike Tour 14 Days: A Visual Feast To The Eyes

Introduction

The North Vietnam motorbike tour won our hearts for a refreshing vacation instead of sumptuous meals and resorts. Beyond our expectations, we experienced picturesque landscapes, unique cultural values, and, most importantly, valuable life lessons. 

Along with trusted companions, we rode, observed with our hearts and eyes, and cherished our best days. 

Introduction

North Vietnam Motorbike Tour: 14 Days Escape From The Buzzing Boulevard

Day 1: Hanoi - Nghia Lo Motorcycle Route

We gathered in the center, checked the motorbike, and departed from the capital after rush hour. Along the Red River, we moved through many areas, such as Thanh Son, Thu Cuc, Son Tay, and Ba Khe, before stopping at Nghia Lo.

The flat terrain was ideal for a good start for newbies. The tall buildings gradually faded away and gave way to a clear view of the mountains on two sides. The fresh air kicked out our stagnation and awakened our adventurous souls.

Day 2: Nghia Lo - Than Uyen Motorbike Trip

We were informed of two tough challenges for the second journey. Right from the first moments, we had to raise our spirits before the rough roads leading to Lung Lo pass. We couldn't let loose as the higher Khau Pha Pass was ahead.

Winding roads at a dizzying height was not an easy game. On the bright side, our efforts paid off on the top of Mu Cang Chai - one of the "roofs of the North." A borderless view down the passes, valleys, and terraced fields made us aware of the greatness of nature.

Day 3: Than Uyen Motorbike Path To Sapa

The road to Than Uyen stretched between rows of ancient pine trees that reminded us of Da Lat, but its steep slopes were on another level. Cold winds hit us in the face as we tried to turn the throttle hard to climb up.

Our hands were shaking from the cold after a long distance to Sapa. We quickly pulled into a sidewalk cafe for hot tea and captured this dreamy town. It was no coincidence that Sapa had become a honeypot for tourists as the supreme beings have bestowed the best on this land.

Today could be the most scenic motorbike touring in Vietnam.

Day 4: Sapa By Motorbike

Sapa deserved a full day of our motorbike tour. The magnificence of the landscape and the unique values of the minority culture made us lose track of time. We made a long to-do list and rushed to get everything done.

The place to visit that left the strongest impression belonged to Fansipan peak - The top of Indochina. Though the distance was only about 20 km from the town, unpredictable weather made traveling dangerous.

The feeling of victory was poured into our souls when we touched the milestone at the peak. The tour guide also shared his sense of pride even though he had been here many times. Sapa loop is always one of the top motorbike tours in northwest Vietnam.

Day 5: Motorcycle Tour From Sapa To Bac Ha 

The cool air brought us a good night's sleep, so we departed later than usual. Leaving the crowded town behind, we headed to the remote areas of the northern mountainous region, first to Bac Ha.

Not as famous as Sapa, but Bac Ha district possessed its own charm. Nestled in the forbidden forest and rugged rocky mountains, the town was not infringed on by excessive tourism exploitation. Still, it retained the wildness and rusticity of its landscape and the local lifestyle. 

These features were evident from the view on both sides and the silence along the way. We could feel a slow recovery from painful and stressful days when we came so close to untamed nature.

Day 6: Bac Ha - Ha Giang Motorbike Trip

The distance between the point of departure and arrival increased significantly compared to the previous days. Most of the time, we devoted ourselves to riding the motorbikes on the side roads and trails. However, that did not mean happiness did not come along.

It has been a long time since we realized that small things could make our day. The fulfillment filled our bones when we came across the leaves of buckwheat flowers that add vitality to a cold winter or unexpected greetings to down-to-the-earth strangers. 

More than a vacation trip, our motorbike tour left valuable lessons and kindled the human values within us.

Bac Ha - Ha Giang Motorbike Trip

Day 7: Ha Giang Motorbike Tour To Dong Van

We were licensed to travel on the rough mountain roads to Ma Pi Leng. Seen from afar, the spongy clouds covered the mountain peaks like an oil painting of paradise. 

Down to the Nho Que river, the gentle winter sunshine reflected on the emerald-green surface and sparkled like a dancing show of precious jewels. Today could be the most amazing Vietnam motorbike tour.

Ha Giang Motorbike Tour To Dong Van

On the way down, we reached Dong Van, famous for its ancient town. In contrast to the brick walls in other neighborhoods, solid stone fences embraced old houses with clay walls and red tile roofs. Without the Internet or the things that belong to modern life, time slept in this rural area for thousands of years.

Day 8: Dong Van - Bao Lac Motorcycle Trip

It took a short period to continue to the neighboring town - Bao Lac. However, the rough terrain due to construction work hindered our great experience. Stay optimistic! As long as we passed the tough route, the picturesque landscape returned with every step we took.

Dong Van - Bao Lac Motorcycle Trip

Our team was blessed with fairs in the border areas that attracted a lot of minority communities. The bustling atmosphere as a festival stirred our adrenaline up. It was the first time we experienced the trade of fresh goods, essentials, and even animals outside a supermarket or farm.

Day 9: Bao Lac - Cao Bang Motorbike Route

We drove for 5 hours to reach Cao Bang. Instead of crowded places to visit, we fell in love with the masterpiece creations of Mother Nature. The motorcycle tour sneaked along roads around mountains and abysses to satisfy our adventurous souls to the fullest extent.

The guide always reminded us to be careful with our vision ahead as the hidden bends posed challenges for even experienced riders. It was a great test to improve our handling and steering skills. The sharp turns gave us goosebumps, but our young hearts did not waver.

Bao Lac - Cao Bang Motorbike Route

Day 10: Motorcycle Touring From Cao Bang To Ban Gioc

Our motorbikes rolled to the most remote areas where the landscape is far from urbanization. The covering of plants on the surrounding landscape added to the mystery that made us think of Jurassic World movies. Isn't it dumb to fantasize about the unknown creatures lurking in those jungles?

After wandering on the roads, we left at Ban Gioc waterfall. The clear stream from upstream flowed through the floors and poured into a large lake below. If it had been summer, we would not have hesitated to jump into this natural pool.

Motorcycle Touring From Cao Bang To Ban Gioc

Day 11: Quang Uyen - Lang Son Motorbike Tour

It was the longest road, about 240 km to Lang Son, and the most emotional. Stories from our tour guide brought us back to the colonial war in Vietnam as we entered Highway 4. 

We could not believe the two thriving villages of Dong Khe and That Khe had suffered from countless fierce battles in the old days. Time has healed things, but it is undeniable that our peace is at the expense of the lives of our predecessors.

When the sunset embraced everything on the way, Lang Son welcomed our arrival. It was a blessing that we had enough time to admire Nhi Thanh, Tam Thanh cave, and border markets before dark.

 Quang Uyen - Lang Son Motorbike Tour

Day 12 -13: Lang Son - Halong Bay Motorcycle Trip

We pulled out all our energy to make it through the 6-hour trip to Ha Long city. The coal dust from the mines on either side annoyed us, but we could not stop our hearts from dancing for the World Natural Wonder. The long ride consumed our strength and put us into a deep sleep before we could even marvel at the scenery. 

Lang Son - Halong Bay Motorcycle Trip

We scheduled our inner-city tour for the next morning. However, our exploration did not take long, as the cruise schedule was already set up. The giant boat moved far from the shore and approached the small islands in Halong Bay. We then transferred to kayaks and conquered Sung Sot Cave by ourselves. There were no words to describe the masterpiece inside. The glittering stalactites filled the ceiling, while the vast cave was home to weird rocks associated with interesting legends.

It was not the end of a day when we did not complete other fun activities on the cruise. We struggled to pick a few options from the long list of offers, such as cooking classes, movies, karaoke, swimming, or squid fishing.

Day 14: Halong Bay - Hanoi Motorcycle Tour

The cruise stopped at Ti Top Island, where we got off and took a stroll on the fine sand. Overshadowed by other islands, the beach exhibited crystal clear water without waves crawling gently to the shore.

The sea was pulsing rhythmically and kindling its own symphony with its dormant strength, embracing our hearts with joy and peace. Just walking along the beach was enough to water our thirsty souls and trip off all the anxiety, stress, and worries in life.

After a hearty breakfast, we headed to shore, and it was the end of the exciting activities. We returned to our motorbikes and moved back to the capital in the afternoon of the same day.

Halong Bay - Hanoi Motorcycle Tour

Conclusion

Though the North Vietnam motorbike tour lasted for two weeks, we still regret leaving the wild nature and returning to our daily lives. One thing's for sure: we'll be back for another adventure.
