Who this tour is for
Generally this tour is for the experienced ADV enthusiast. There are plenty of offroad oppertunties and chances to test your skills. Although very much a road tour, there are opportunities to be creative. We also find ourselves in parts of the country where foreigners are not found, with this, comes slightly rougher living conditions and authentic Vietnamese food/culture. No hiding from the “real” Vietnam on this tour, get stuck in, from the luxurious to the rough.
Ho Chi Minh to Bao Loc
Choice 1 : We leave Ho Chi Minh City to head toward the Dong Nai river. We pass the Tri An lake before heading into the scenic countryside along a valley road which takes us to Bao Loc town.
Choice 2 : After leaving Ho Chi Minh City we continue north with mild offroading along the Dong Nai river. We head into the middle of nowhere (quite literally) on a single-track paved road which turns into a brief section of dirt road. We may select the following roads based on the level of challenge we choose to face.
Bao Loc to Buon Ma Thuot
We head northward out of Bao Loc through narrow coffee plantations. We take a mild gravel track with a few craters for some fun. This location is remote even for the countryside but will one day be paved. As of now, it is still perfect for the adventure seeker.
The day continues onto roads overseeing rivers as we approach the coffee capital city of Buon Ma Thuot. We have the option to stay in the Lak lake area which offers high-end accommodation options and even camping.
Buon Ma Thuot to Central Vietnam
We head into the midlands where no tourists have ever been. These are among the most scenic remote country lanes in Vietnam. As we will be well off the tourist path, our only accommodation option won’t be the best but decent enough. However as it sets us up for the 4th day, the trade-off is absolutely worth it!
Centre of Vietnam to Tam Ky
We ride on brand new roads that cut through the centre of Vietnam, these will one day become highways but for now they remain empty and perfect for a smooth ride. Plenty of activity around with kids playing and adults in their daily farming. Overall it is a spectacular way to see the Vietnamese countryside and remote traditional cultures. We finally head into Tam Ky on the coast where we spend the night.
Tam Ky to Danang
We go back inland onto new roads that few have ever rode. It eventually connects to the main highway that goes between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City on the Laos border. We finally head back to the coast to our final destination, Danang City.
