North Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Hanoi to Mai Chau - 15 days

Northern Vietnam is a land filled to the brim with the mysterious beauty of nature. From long stretches of flat plains broken up by jagged mountains to clear lakes surrounded by forest greens, the region has something for everyone. Furthermore, tours of this region are often short, with the longest being only 10 days, not enough for a thorough exploration. And as such, we have designed a North Vietnam motorbike tour for a whopping 15 days, including a rest day.

Our 15-day North Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Hanoi to Mai Chau will be covering most northern province, with highlights such as Ban Gioc Waterfall, Ba Be Lake, Dong Van Geopark, Ha Giang’s buckwheat flower fields, Moc Chau Plateau, as well as numerous terraced rice fields, mountain passes, valleys, and rarely-visited tourist spots. Below we have laid out detailed plans for this trip of a lifetime.
