Who this tour is for
The adventurous rider who is looking to get off the beaten tourist track. This tour can be done on XR150s or CB500s, the sights are stunning on any bike. The route is mostly a beautiful road ride, though there are off-road alternatives if you want to test your skills, and give your team a challenge. Riders can experience different ways of life in Vietnam as we travel through tiny remote villages, quite mountain towns, and relaxing coastal cities.
Ho Chi Minh to Bao Loc
Departing Ho Chi Minh city, we escape the traffic and get into nature. Passing by Tri An lake and up towards Cat Tien, enjoy the green change of scenery. This day has options for light off-road to leave the beaten track and really get you ‘off the map’. Or, if twists and turns on mountain roads are more your thing, you can enjoy them all the way up to Bao Loc. A perfect first day for any rider.
Bao Loc to Buon Ma Thuot
Heading further north into Buon Ma Thuot, we ride through tea and coffee plantations, and roads overlooking lakes and valleys. This day has something for everyone, from sprawling rice fields to mountain passes. Day 2 has plenty of opportunities to tweak this route just for you. With more technical off-road challenges, or tiny back roads through villages
Buon Ma Thuot to Quy Nhon
Enjoy a famous Buon Ma Thuot coffee before departure! Day 3 will have you heading out west towards the coast, and ending in Quy Nhon city. This day includes the aptly titled ‘road to heaven’ (QL19C) which needs to be ridden to be believed. Each turn reveals more sweeping landscapes and you’ll be wiping a tear from your eye at the end.
Quy Nhon to Kon Tum
Day 4 is the most remote ride of the tour, heading east and inland towards Kon Tum. See the real Vietnam, untouched by tourism. This is definitely a day for the lone ranger rider as we take roads that are almost empty, enjoying kilometers of quiet, peaceful mountain climbs. No chance of Starbucks on this route, you’ll be sipping tea with the locals.
