Day 1Northwest Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Hanoi to Thac Ba

Today’s destination is Thac Ba Lake – one of Vietnam’s three largest artificial lakes. Being dubbed “Halong Bay on Mountain”, 1331 forested islands are emerging on the lake’s calmly blue and clear water surface, the system of amazing caves hidden deep in the limestone mountains. That mysterious beauty gives Thac Ba a sparkling yet charming look. There are two options for you to choose from. An off-road route is the best choice if you want to experience a more challenging ride.

In contrast, back-road or on-road is a better way to ensure your safety. However, they both lead you to the lake at about 4:30 p.m. With a short time left, take a cruise on Thac Ba Lake to feel the elegance of nature and be laid back. Have a taste of local dishes and spend the night at a homestay of a Yao family.

Day 2Northwest Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Thac Ba to Xin Man

Try to wake up early in the morning and get things done quickly as the riding today will be longer and more challenging. After having breakfast, spend some time riding around Thac Ba Lake on two wheels. Inhale some fresh air and feast your eyes with mind-blowing sceneries. Don’t miss a local Vietnamese meal at the town of Quang Binh for lunch. We then tackle old winding single track through the old jungle that’ll surely give you a little challenge. Drop by a small waterfall inside the forest to shake off the summer heat and snap amazing shots.

You can notice a change in landscapes on the way, from quiet and peaceful local life in the morning to gorgeous mountains mixed with terraced rice fields in the afternoon. Eventually, we will check in at a small hostel in Xin Man to take a rest after hours of riding.

Day 3Northwest Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Xin Man to Sapa

Head to Sa Pa on the Love road, which leads us through amazing rice terraces, old forests, and spectacular springs. To get to know the cultural identity of the ethnic minorities in the north, visit the highland fairs such as Bac Ha, Can Cau, and Nhung Khau Nhin. Along the side of Hoi An, Sa Pa has been named among the top ten places to visit in Southeast Asia in 2018 by Rough Guides. The town is the convergence of serene life and fascinating natural views. Eye-witnessing the winding passes stretching around the green mountains and hills, the dazzling orchid, peach gardens, and the golden terraced fields in the ripe season, even the most fastidious backpackers are captivated by Sa Pa’s beauty. For the night, you can pick between a hotel for quiet relaxation or a homestay for a more memorable time with the friendly people here. This would be one of the most interesting days of the 5-day Northwest Vietnam motorbike tour from Hanoi to Nghia Lo.

Day 4Northwest Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Sapa – Than Uyen – Mu Cang Chai – Nghia Lo

Leaving Sa Pa, make our way to Than Uyen, a large valley endowed with an interlaced river system and endless terraced fields that create various colors for pouring water season. Next, conquer O Quy Ho Pass with cloud-hugged mountains and fog on valleys. Following the challenging pass is Mu Cang Chai. The land appears with rice terraces, which may be considered the most breathtaking scenery in Northern Vietnam. Gasp-worthy views and great photo ops.

The final spot is Nghia Lo, famous for Bauhinia variegata, iridescent sticky rice, brocade, and especially the gentle Thai dance performances. Muong Lo Cultural Market and the service trade network have made Nghia Lo grow up as a socio-economic center of Western Yen Bai provinces. Despite the long road, you’ll feel cheery and revitalized thanks to the amazing Nature. We’ll end the day at a hotel and enjoy supper there.
