Ta Xua Motorbike Tour: 3 Days From Hanoi - Phu Yen - Ta Xua

Ta Xua Motorbike Tour - Itinerary

You can go to Ta Xua in two routes; one is quicker than the other. You can plan for a longer itinerary if you have ample time to travel. Or read on if you want to jump right to the mountain.

Even though you could travel by local bus or car to Ta Xua, we still recommend exploring Ta Xua by motorbike. Why? Suppose you don’t go by bike; you will have to do strenuous walking since many routes here are not designed for automobiles or buses.

It is best to choose a manual or semi-automatic motorbike, as they provide better engine control when navigating twisting, mountainous routes and greater force on the wide roadways. In addition, they conserve fuel and are more economical.

For those who want to go for the direct road, it will take around 6 hours to go 200 kilometers from Hanoi to Ta Xua. However, give yourself some time and explore less-traveled paths if you can; that’s half of the joy of motorcycling.

The route may be completed in a single day, although it isn’t particularly fun and may be quite challenging for novice riders. As a result, we provide you with a 3-day out-and-back trip.

We assist each of our riders in creating a unique Ta Xua itinerary that considers their time constraints and sightseeing goals.
