Day 1: Hanoi-Mai Chau-180km (B, L,D)
Of all the surrounding attractions around Hanoi, Mai Chau is possibly the most ideal choice for the short motorbike trip from Hanoi. Even though Mai Chau seems not be new with many bikers, what we promise to bring to riders is the countryside back-roads, where you can truly feel the beauty of mountainous areas around northern Vietnam.

Just with Vietnam Exploration Booking, you can get around the winding trails of paddy fields or the rocky mountain, instead of the smooth roads or the popular itinerary.

Mai Chau by motorcycle would be the most interesting thing and the highlight of the whole motorcycle journey. We come to this lovely valley at around 5 pm and it comes to the end of the 1st day motorbike of north Vietnam.

Day 2: Mai Chau-Phu Yen -170km (B, L, D)

We kick off the morning of the 2nd day with motorcycle trip North Vietnam by short walking around the rustic village of Thai people. Afterward, the journey is continued by riding motorbike upnorth to the Phu Yen. With the distance of roughly 170km through the mountains, forests and the winding trails, you can really revel in the scenery of nature and stop for the stunning photos.

Before getting to Phu Yen, our Vietnam  motorcycle crew will tumble down to Moc Chau Plateau, where you are surrounded by the scent and the enormousness of the tea farm and the colors of the garden of plum and peach. A lunch in Moc Chau will be the relaxing moment to completely feel the beauty of this land.

After the lunch, the Vietnam Exploration Booking keeps crossing many mountains and Da River lake. We finally reach Phu Yen town at about 4:30 pm and finish the 2nd day of northern Vietnam motorcycle tours.

Day 3: Phu Yen-Thac Ba Lake-170km(B, L, D)

Although the riding today is short, it promisingly bring you tons of memorable moments and could be the spotlight of the motorcycle tour in Vietnam. The morning is followed by the joyful riding to the North on the winding paths through the vast green tea fields. We will have a stop-over in Yen Bai to enjoy a traditional lunch and take a rest.

After the lunch, our motorbike riding team will descend to Thac Ba Lake at around 3: 00 pm. The long riding hours is worth savoring the relaxing moments by joining a boat tour on Thac Ba Lake to sightsee the glorious views of 2 sides.

We come back to local Vu Linh Family home-stay at late afternoon and end the 3rd day of the motorbike tours North Vietnam.

Day 4: Thac Ba lake-Hanoi-185km(B, L)
After the traditional-style breakfast with the friendly local people, our motorbike tour Northern Vietnam hits the road back to Hanoi.

The ways back are so varied and it is up to the demand of motorcylists. If you are in the hurry to come back to Hanoi, we can follow the smooth roads and highway. If you are still interested in the tranquil beauty of Vietnam, we would gladly take you through the countryside roads on the Red River Delta for you to admire the pristine beauty of this region.

We are back to Hanoi at roughly 4: 30pm and ends the 4 day journey with Vietnam Motorbike Tour Asia team. Although 4 days are not a long time but we hope that the moments with Vietnam Exploration Booking did give you a lot of unforgettable memories.

You Need Travel Insurance!

Make sure you wear a freaking helmet! Trust me. A motorbike landed on my head and I would not be writing this if it weren’t for that helmet.

Also, make sure you have travel insurance, and don’t scrimp on it either! We recommend world nomads for their good adventure travel coverage. The other option you can check out is Save wings, although their coverage for adventure travel is minimal.

If you’re planning on driving a motorbike through Vietnam, it’s important that you have the right type of licence for it in order for your insurance to fully cover you.
