Day 1 Go for a drive from Hanoi to Vu Linh

From Hanoi, you get on the car and move a distance of 18 km to reach Vu Linh. It will take you around 5 hours to drive between the two destinations. On the way, you move through the Red River, where you can enjoy the surrounding countryside with the agricultural lands that are covered with vast rice fields and tree-covered areas. Seeing the daily life of the people here, you certainly cannot hide your surprise. It seems to be far different from the bustling and noisy atmosphere of Hanoi. 

Keep your drive before having a stop in Viet Tri or Doan Hung town where you will enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant. After taking some rest, you continue your journey and get to Vu Linh in the late afternoon. Here you will stay overnight in the stilt house of the Yao people.

BM Travel - OWNER - FOUNDER - Mr Binh Phi

Binh Phi is the proud owner and founder of the Vietnam Motorbike Tours. With a great passion for travel, Binh soon set the goal to become a tour guide so that he had the chance to travel all over Vietnam for free and introduce his beautiful country to international friends. He then realized that though Vietnam had so many things to offer to tourists - from gorgeous landscapes, excellent cuisine to unique cultures and hospitable people, most travel agencies hadn’t yet tapped the full potentials of Vietnam’s tourism and been able to offer a truly authentic and diverse travel experience to international tourists...

Owner - Founder detail


We are enthusiastic, multilingual, and well-experienced Vietnamese people having an endless passion for motorbikes and taking adventures. We have been organizing off-road and cross-border Vietnam motorbike tours for 10 years now and we know how to bring the most stunning experiences for each customer.

Our goal has always been the same: to give our customers the chance to experience Vietnam in a special and unusual way. Therefore, all of our motorbike tours are designed to stay away from mass tourism, help you understand deeply the cultures, be closer to local people, and on top of that, gain the best Vietnam motorcycle touring experiences that you will never forget!
