Living in a densely populated country, the Vietnamese primarily move on two wheels, so it’s not surprising why Vietnam is considered the home of motorbikes. This mode of transport is a preferable and cheaper choice for millions of local people, and tourists are catching on.
In the beginning, off-road motorbike tours in Vietnam were organized in response to the demand of small groups or clubs. After much positive feedback, this type of trip becomes more and more professional.
Vietnam Motorbike Tours will satisfy your desire to explore the landscape no matter if you can ride by yourself or not; let us be your guide and traveling companion.

3: Phu Yen to Son La Motorbike Tour

We make a stopover on this third day to cruise the other tourist attractions in Son La province.  It is quite a long distance (about 130km) from Phu Yen to Son La, but idyllic villages and the farming of ethnic people along the journey are worth seeing. Get a break at Son La around lunchtime and spend the afternoon visiting the former French prison & museum.

5: Than Uyen to Sapa By Motorbike

Leaving behind the undisturbed town of Than Uyen, we move on to Sapa, one of the tourist hotspots in Vietnam.  It’s really an adventure to transport on  Sky Gate (other names are  Tram Ton or O Quy Hop) crossing the Hoang Lien Son mountain range. 

This is the longest and tallest winding pass of VietNam, connecting Lai Chau & Lao Cai provinces.  Hunt for the sea of clouds on its top before descending to Sapa valley. You will love Sapa at first sight for its cold, foggy  weather and terrific panorama.
