About us Vietnam Motorbike Tours Club

Due to many reasons, prior to 2000, there were very few motorcycling tourists in Vietnam, as they had to rent motorcycles, buy street maps, and drive motorbikes from the city center alone, since no tourist agencies organized tours. Although they knew it was very dangerous, they had no choice. Faced with such a situation. Given this situation, Vietnam Motorbike Tours Club Team is destined to take you to remote mountainous regions with beautiful mountain scenes, stunning waterfalls or magical terraced rice paddies, or just to talk to rustic locals or live in natural, simple villages.

However, we only recommend you to buy a brand new motorbike if you tend to go on tour for above a month. And the cost of buying a new motorcycle is quite expensive as it costs you up to 200$. But for renting, it saves more for you. Renting a motorcycle costs at a average price of 25$. If you want to rent a motorcycle which is bigger and stronger engine, the cost can be up to 55$. check more detail about our Dirt Bike here: http://vietnammotorbiketoursclub.com/tcnt-mn354/our-dirt-bikes.htm


The scon daily expense is about accommodation. When you have rented a motorbike, you need to think about where to stay during the tour. To save money, you can choose to share your room with others. Here are some common accommodations when touring off-road:

  • Guest Houses & Hostels
  • Homestays & Airbnb
  • Camping
  • Hotels & Resorts

Guest Houses & Hostels:

If your tour is going to last for several days, you will spend some nights staying at guest houses or hotels. You can easily found them anywhere within the country even the rural regions. And they often cost a great value. According to the average accommodation cost, it is from 10$ to 20$ for a double, twin, triple, or quadruple room. With this price, it is best suitable for a couple staying overnight. It is also cheap for travelling alone if you bargain politely, you cost can be only 7$ for a night.

Homestays & Airbnb:

For some regions in Vietnam especially which are in the northeast of Vietnam, stay overnight in the stilt house or wooden house can save best money for you. For instance, when touring to Ha giang or mai chau, it costs only from 2$ to 4$ for a night. If you have a tight budget then you should choose homestay for accommodation. Airbnb is as cheap as homestay. You can find one in many religions like Mekong delta.


Choosing to camp is another way to save your money. It is recommended as a special option when you take a ride on ho chi minh road or ocean road. This could be an interesting travelling experience. However, if you have a tension of wild camping, you should be careful when choosing where to place your tent.

Hotels & Resorts

For popular tourist destinations or in all cities, it is easy to find a wide range of hotels and resorts. If you are a mid-range traveller, you should stay overnight in this type of accommodation since it offers standardized quality and cleanliness and safety. The cost often ranges from 20$ to 40$ per night.


the amount of money you spend on fuel will depends on what type of motorcycle you are riding and how far your driving distance is. Usually, the long distance of riding on Vietnamese road is about 300 km and 100 km is for the short riding distance. Most motorcycle with fuel capacity containing 3 to 5 liter can help you ride for 100km to 250 km depending on the model and road conditions. The petrol price in vietnam is always changing but the average fuel cost for one day of riding will be from 2$ to 4$.

Food and drink in Vietnam Motorbike Tours

the cost for food and drink is slightly different from person to person. If you eat local street foods for all meals, it costs you 1$ to 2$ for each. For many travelers, trying Vietnam street food is such a great experience. If you choose to eat locally, a hearty breakfast, a lunch with coffee or soft drinks is just up to 5$  per person. The cost for dinner is cheap too. However, after a long day of riding for far distance, mostly, motorcyclists will have the need for some cold beer and maybe a small night party. The cost can double from 10$ to 20$ per person including a small party with alcohol. And if you are traveling along the coast, it is a pity to not try any seafood there, but it can be more costly. Once you choose to have seafood at a restaurant, the eating cost also increases. Therefore, for a hearty breakfast, lunch together with coffee or soft drinks, and a big dinner with beer, it is about up to 50$ per day. For some isolated areas, you probably can have noodles and local rices for your meals.     

Additional cost

Remember in your mind that, there are some additional costs per day from 1$ to 5$. They can be entrance tickets when visiting attractions, sites, or museums and even roadside snack and water to avoid being hydrated. Perhaps, sometimes, sitting next to the window of a hotel and being overwhelmed by the majestic view in front of you can make you have a “luxurious” drink or a meal cooked in a western way after days of having local rices as you travel to mountainous regions.
