Saigon Motorbike Trip - A 9-day Journey

Kick-off your journey to Dong Xoai 

Let's start one of the great motorbike tours through the roads of Vietnam. We begin with a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels, a vast network of subterranean tunnels located northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. 

You may also explore cashew and rubber fields, as well as see the production of rice wine and rice paper. As for the rest, you can spend the night at Thanh Sang Dong Xoai hotel.

There are two different seasons in Di Linh, the rainy season beginning in April and ending in November. Full of vitality, lush green greenery. The dry season, which lasts from December to March the following year, is marked by the heady scent of vast coffee estates.

Buon Me Thuot to Pleiku

The distance between Buon Ma Thuot and Pleiku is approximately 177 kilometers. However, the road from Buon Ma Thuot to Pleiku is primarily a mountain pass and is quite difficult to travel. Therefore it will take you around 4 to 5 hours to go between these two places. 

Pleiku, the capital of Gia Lai province, is a location for discovering Vietnam's distinctive culture, as well as the raw beauty of the Great Thousand with Ho Che sea, Ho T'nung beach, and Ham Rong mountain. 

Riders normally ride to Pleiku to marvel at the magnificent scenery, learn about the local culture, and sample the local delicacies.

Now fasten your helmet and go for Hoi An on Highway 14E. You may observe how incense and chopsticks are created and take a ferry over the Thu Bon River to My Son, the Cham Pa Kingdom's home. The adventure will come to a conclusion when you reach Hoi An in the afternoon.

Hoi An Historical Town is a well-known city in Quang Nam province, an old town with more than 1000 architectural monuments ranging from streets, residences, assembly halls, community houses, pagodas, shrines, ethnic churches, ancient wells, and traditional foods. 

Visitors will be captivated by Hoi An's ageless charm, which is incredibly rustic and beautiful.

Riding to Quang Nam without seeing the "symbol of Hoi An," the  Pagoda Bridge, would be a mistake. This location is also known as the Japanese Temple, and it is located near Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street and Tran Phu Street.
