Vietnam By Motorbike 2023 Route Recommendations
Central Vietnam Motorbike Trip
Day 1: Hoi An – Prao Motor Trip
We began the first day of our motorbike in Vietnam trip by visiting Hoi An Ancient Town, a historic port city that boasts quaint traditional handicraft villages and serene natural beauty. The architecture and street layout of this unique cultural monument were a reflection of the mix of native and foreign influences.
Then, the crew visited Dong Giang, which boasts breathtaking scenery and pleasant weather typical of a majestic outskirt. After that, we headed to Prao Town to learn more about the fascinating culture of this mountainous region.
Day 2: Prao – Khe Sanh Motorcycle Tour
Prao is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life by connecting with nature and taking in the fresh air, thanks to the warm climate and uninterrupted sunlight throughout the year. After leaving the jungle, we reached a magnificent mountain waterfall for lunch and a quick break.
Then, our team stopped in Quang Tri to tour Khe Sanh Combat Base, an impregnable American defense station. Here, we learned more about the ferocious battle in Vietnam and the resilient nature of the Vietnamese people.

Day 3: Khe Sanh – Hue Motorbike Trip
After breakfast, we hit the road and stopped at a few historic locations in the central coastal area before advancing past the Seventeenth parallel of the temporary military demarcation.
Along the way, we stopped and visited the Vinh Moc Tunnel. In the 1960s, the underground settlement of Dong Ha’s Vinh Moc Tunnel served as a crucial civilian bomb shelter during intense bombing strikes. We headed down the coastline to Hue in the late afternoon.
Hue at night was like a shy, charming maid with something old, something new, something peaceful yet still youthful. The pace of life seemed to be slower there. If you choose this motorbike tour, never skip a cyclo tour in this ancient city.
Day 4: Hue – Hoi An Motorbike Tour
One of the first locations visitors to Hue see was the Hue Imperial Citadel. Hue is renowned for its white-sand beaches, so make sure to thrill yourself by dipping into the water and trying the regional cuisine.
We continued riding through Hai Van Pass, a well-traveled mountain road in the country. We got an opportunity to view a variety of sceneries while traveling along the winding roads and stop at My Khe beach for a refreshing beverage before continuing to Hoi An.
Central Highland Motor Tour
Day 1: Da Lat – Lak Lake Motorbike Tour
We started the Vietnam motorbike trip by heading to Van Thanh flower village. It was the first time we saw such stunning views of the flower gardens as well as the coffee farm, mushroom farm, etc., on both sides of the road.
Then, we rode to the Elephant waterfall, the largest waterfall in Central Highland. Standing in front of the waterfall, we felt like a fish plunging in an ocean of freedom. The water seemed to wash away our stress and worries in this hectic life. This is where you should not miss if you carry on this motorcycle tour.
Afterward, we rode on a winding country road to Da Don River. Following lunch, the crew continued the journey and arrived at Lak Lake before dusk.

Day 2: Lak Lake – Buon Me Thuot Motorbike Trip
Lak Lake was the highlight of today’s trip. The eco-lodge, the surrounding mountains, and various crops, such as corn, rice, coffee, etc., were all beautifully visible as we traveled along the lake.
We had a short visit to Jun Village, home to hill tribes in their original state and amazing natural beauty. The locals’ livelihood is planting coffee and cereals, so they invited us to stay for lunch with simple yet delectable dishes from rice and corn. They also gave us some packs of ground coffee. How friendly and hostile they are!
Following lunch, we rested in the long house at Lak Lake. Then, we carried on our journey of 50 kilometers to Buon Me Thuot.
Day 3: Buon Me Thuot – Nha Trang Motorcycle Tour
After a hearty breakfast, we went to Dray Sap, the most impressive waterfall in Central Vietnam. The sunshine shining through the vegetation made the waterfall seem more impressive, allowing us to capture the moment beautifully in photographs to save the memory.
After lunch, we said goodbye to Buon Me Thuot and headed to Nha Trang. Along the way, we were amazed by the stunning rural landscape with buffalos playing in the rice fields and herds of cows being carried along the roads.

South Vietnam Motorcycle Trip
Day 1: Sai Gon – Can Tho Motorbike Trip
Our journey started with a ride from Sai Gon (also known as Ho Chi Minh) to Tan Phu Trung village. From there, we rode to the Cu Chi tunnels, the most well-known tunnels in Vietnam, which were dug by Vietnamese soldiers during the American war.
We set off on our motorbikes via the lush rice fields leading to My Tho’s picturesque rural city. Along the way, we took in the view of the fishing harbor, stilt homes, boat construction shops, and many islets. After a short break to enjoy seasonal tropical fruits, we hopped on our motorcycles and rode to Can Tho.
Day 2: Can Tho – Chau Doc Motorcycle Tour
The second day began with a ride to An Binh Market, where we boarded a boat to the famous Cai Rang Floating Market, among Southeast Asia’s busiest fruit markets. Here, we got a chance to discover the hidden appeal of the market with its gorgeous colors and delectable flavors of fresh fruits.
As we traveled on, we stopped at Binh Thuy ancient home, whose design is a flawless fusion of traditional Vietnamese and French architecture. Then, we headed to Chau Doc and spent the night there.
Day 3: Chau Doc – Sai Gon Motor Trip
We woke up early to enjoy the peaceful dawn and had a filling breakfast at the hotel. Then, the crew rode to the center to board a small boat and explore several floating homes.
What impressed us most was the floating market that we had to wake up at the crack of dawn to see. This was where people sell everything on their boats, each boat offering one kind of goods. We bought some pineapples and coconuts, which were super sweet and juicy.
We also visited the well-known Mubarak Mosque and observed the inhabitants weaving in an old-fashioned way. Hopped on our motorbikes, we traveled back to Sai Gon on the main road, crossing the vast rice fields of the provinces of Dong Thap and Long An.
