Vietnam shares land borders with three countries in Asia, including China, Cambodia, and Laos. However, Laos – Vietnam border crossing by motorbike is one of the great ways to experience adventurous trips and get excited about the Asian lifestyle.

In general, the Laos-Vietnam border stretches from Lai Chau to Kontum. In reality, there are many different international border gates to move between these two beautiful countries. Furthermore, border areas are often known as sensitive places because of their vital position for the employment of Natural resources. Nevertheless, these special destinations are becoming more and more interesting to curious tourists across Vietnam and foreign travelers.

Specifically, Vietnam and Laos have a lot of things in common, such as culture and customs. The lifestyle of ethnic minority groups in the border area is similar. It helps to create a friendly community that attracts millions of visitors to come here every year to discover and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Because of this reason, our Off-road Riding Indochina Motorbike Tour was born. Our journey will take you to travel from Mai Chau, through the Vietnam-Laos border gate to come to Sam Nua, Xieng Khoang, Luang Prabang, Muang Khoang of Laos; come back to Vietnam through Dien Bien Phu, Son La and finish in Phu Yen, a central province of Vietnam.

ITINERARY

Day 1Hanoi – Mai Chau

Mai Chau is located in Hoa Binh, which is about 150 kilometers towards the West of Hanoi. Normally, it takes around 4 hours to travel by bike from Vietnam’s capital to this destination. Speaking of popularity, Mai Chau cannot stay at the same level as its neighbor, Moc Chau Plateau. Despite that, its hidden beauty is an intriguing thing that interests a large number of motorcyclists, not only come for the first time but also come back more several times.

In terms of the roads, it is not difficult to ride the motorcycle on Mai Chau paths. In reality, the Government spends a certain amount of budget on these roads to support tourism service development here. However, it does not mean that you can be careless while riding there even though you are an amateur rider or professional one. After a long riding day, our team will stay in a traditional house of Thai ethnic, stilt-house. Do not forget to sleep well and get ready for crossing the border, come to beautiful Laos.
