    Vietnam North West Motorbike Tours
    North West Motorbike Tours give all riders the adventure passion of motorcycling and riding offroad trips to Vietnam Northwest provinces namely Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Dien Bien, Hoa Binh, Lai Chau, Son La…by dirt bike, moped, scooter. This subregion is located on right bank of Hong River. The remote northwest of Vietnam appeals to those wanting to get off the beaten track in one of Vietnam’s most beautiful, unaffected and untouristed areas. The travellers who do venture to Mai Chau, Son La and Dien Bien Phu often do so by way of a hired jeep and driver or do it by motorbike, while those striking straight north to Vietnam’s hilltribe capital of Sapa avail themselves of the comfortable and efficient overnight train to Sapa. Whichever way you’re headed, prepare yourself for stunning scenery as you pass through spectacular ravines and over breathtaking passes. Best known for the burgeoning trekking centre of Sapa, there is a lot more worth investigating in this part of the country. The remote French firebase of Dien Bien Phu remains a drawcard, but it’s as much the attraction of the trip there as the town itself that is worth visiting. A trip to Dien Bien Phu is easily combined with an approach to Sapa via “the back way” over the Fansipan pass (Vietnam’s highest), allowing for more stunning scenery and the opportunity to see some of the less touristed parts of the country. Another popular destinations is Mai Chau whose day-trekking and stunning scenery have helped it develop into a small tourist centre en-route to Dien Bien Phu — many trips from Hanoi run out to Mai Chau — and with good reason. It also forms a comfortable spot to rest those weary limbs before continuing onwards and up into the hills.

    1. 10 Days North West Vietnam Motorbiking 10 Days

      Day 1: Hanoi Motorbiking – Mai Chau. ~160 km, ~6 h.

      Once out of the Red River Delta, which brims with traditional farming activity, we pass through limestone monoliths and into foothills populated by Muong people. We head straight at the main range before breaching a high and beautiful forested pass, which descends into the hidden valley of Mai Chau where we spend the night with friends in a traditional Thai stilt house in a Thai village.

      Day 2: Mai Chau Motorbiking – Xa Linh Motorbiking – Hang Kia. ~60 km, ~3 h.

      We head up the main range and follow the road to Xa Linh. Hang Kia is 5 km from Xa Linh, home of Flower H’mong people. There are 2 possibilities for accommodation: stay near Hang Kia People’s Committee or ride 14 km up on the track that leads to Thung Man, Thung Man is a H’mong village and still no electricity.

      Day 3: Hang Kia Motorbiking – Son La. ~200 km, ~8 h.

      On good road looking high over distant mountains we head up into a forested region populated by H’mong people before descending into a mountainous tea-growing region. Soon after we follow a long valley floor covered in a sea of rice surrounded by Black Thai villages all the way to Son La with its bargain-filled market. Sleep in a hotel.

      Day 4: Son La Motorbiking – Lai Chau. ~200 km, ~8 h.

      15 passes. Very nice road and stunning landscape. Probably the most beautiful journey of the whole trip even the road is in poor condition.

      Day 5: Lai Chau Motorbiking – Tam Duong. ~150 km, ~7 h.

      The most demanding and remote section of the drive takes us upstream along the left side of a Black River tributary through forest on a bumpy dirt road past isolated pockets of Tay, Thai, H’mong and Man peoples before breaching a pass to enter the Tam Duong plain, which is covered in shark’s teeth like limestone karst. We would visit a Mang village near Sin Ho, the guide will buy some food to give to the head of the village, and he later distributes our donations to the villagers. We stay O/N at Phuong Thanh Hotel.

      Day 6: Tam Duong Motorbiking – Sapa. ~100 km, ~5 h.

      Tam Duong market in the morning. There are colourful Montagnard groups living in Tam Duong: Black H’mong and Dzao. ~10 am: beautiful ride at slow pace on bumpy road to Sapa. We will have a big breakfast because there is nothing to eat on the way, just us with the wildness. We stay O/N in Cat Cat Hotel.

      Day 7: Sapa Motorbiking – Bac Ha. ~120 km, ~4 h.

      The ride from Sapa to Bac Ha takes ~4 hours, down from Sapa to Lao Cai (34 km) and up to Bac Ha (70 km) with stunning landscape. We check in Dang Khoa Hotel and have lunch. In the afternoon, we trek to Lung Phinh village of Flower H’mong people. Stay overnight in Bac Ha.

      Day 8: Bac Ha Motorbiking – Can Cau Motorbiking – Bac Ha. ~50 km, ~2 h.

      Can Cau is the most beautiful and colourful weekend market in Bac Ha. The road is rough and pitiless; without a 4WD or strong two-wheeled transport such as Minsk, do not even think of it.

      Day 9: Bac Ha Motorbiking – Luc Yen Motorbiking – Vu Linh. ~180 km, ~6 h.

      Bac Ha market in the morning. Then we start from Bac Ha and ride down to Luc Yen. Ride to Vu Linh in about 2 hours around the lake on small road lined by palm trees and scenic mountain views. It will be dark already. The welcome is exceptional and we hope you will not be too much tired.

      Day 10: Vu Linh Motorbiking – Hanoi. ~200 km, ~7 h.

      Dao market in the morning. Pass through the lake with motorbike by boat. Come back to Hanoi by Song Thao. Very nice road.

    General rules for motorbike riding in Vietnam & Other country

    It is claimed that riding motorbike in Vietnam & other country is not easy, especially for the inexperienced ones. However, it would be much easier for motorcyclists if they follow the rules and traffic laws of Vietnam & other country rigidly. To ensure that you have a safe motorcycle trip and lifetime experience in Vietnam, there are some regulations that you need to bear in mind:

    • Helmet is a compulsory equipment for motorbike riding
    • You should use the high-quality helmet which was certified by traffic safety management bureaus or helmets following international standards. If you use the cheap helmet, it could be dangerous in case of injuries and accidents.
    • In Vietnam, we follow the right hand side rule of traffic
    • Be confident and decisive when riding. Don’t freak out or be nervous.
    • Ride carefully and control the speed in different circumstances.
    • In Vietnam & other country, it is acceptable in using horn. Therefore, using it smartly because it could help you avoid undesirable cases. In some routes, there might be blind corners or crossroads, so it would be useful to utilize horn.
    • Give ways to bigger vehicles such as trucks, cars, buses or cart-transporting vehicles. It can ensure your safety and one thing for sure, they would take up for big parts of road surface.
    • Ride slowly when making a turn. It is important for you to push the light signals and sound so the left-behind vehicles are aware of your turn. However, you are advised to use your hand gesture and body language also because it would be more noticeable (waving hand when you want to turn left or right)
    • Show your respect and friendliness to people on the roads. Avoid conflicts with others because you don’t know who you are facing with.
    • Be friendly and chummy to other vehicle controllers when they greet you.
    • Be polite with the police. Don’t show out your abnormal or strange and suspicious behaviors on the road and the police will get no attention on you.
    • Drinking and riding should not be gone along.
