Continuing the journey, the motorbike crew comes to a route in Lang Son province with constantly changing landscapes from mountains to forests.

When you zoom out, you can even discover the time-colored stilt houses of the Tay, Nung, and Dao ethnic groups.

The favorable terrain and weather in the valley allow people to grow two main crops. Suppose we have the opportunity to do Vietnam Motorbike Tours during the harvest season; we can enjoy golden rice fields stretching as far as the eye can see.

We will stay in the hotel here one night to regain strength for the next day's trip.
