5 Reasons to Travel By Motorbike in Vietnam

Vietnam is said to be one of the best choices for tourists for their Indochina tour packages thanks to its many world heritages, well-preserved nature, long-term history and rich culture. Among a lot of travel services and various vehicles, many tourists from different countries choose motorbikes as their friends to discover Vietnam more deeply. If you are wondering why, we would like to bring to you 5 reasons to travel by motorbike in Vietnam.



1. A combined trip of cultural and natural discovery

Touring by motorbikes helps you get into the mysterious regions of Vietnam, which you cannot experience in other normal group tours. Particularly, you can challenge yourself travel on the most dangerous passes of northern Vietnam, or narrow rugged jungle paths or hill trails where no cars and buses can reach. Moreover, the motorbike tours in Vietnam always guarantee you the opportunity to explore the real life of local people, especially those in remote areas. Thus, you will be able to not only admire stunning landscape but also extend your knowledge of Vietnamese culture.


2. Good Food

Vietnam is widely well-known for a rich culinary culture with a lot of beautiful specialties. Travelling to this country will sure offer you the chance to taste some of them, which will definitely delight you. Actually, you can choose among a wide range of choices of transportation to transfer from regions to regions in Vietnam during your culinary tour. However, you can only experience a unique cuisine in remote areas in Vietnam by motorbike. Because riding a motorbike is very convenient for you to pay a visit to some local families in mountainous areas of Northern Vietnam or some floating villages in central Vietnam, where you can observe and experience many unique dishes made by the local.


3. Beautiful Routes

It is understandable that Vietnam is an ideal destination for motorbike expeditions thanks to its diverse terrain and magnificent scenery. If you come to Vietnam just to have a look at some outstanding attractions or famous and touristy ones like Halong Bay, Hanoi, Hoi An, NhaTrang then you will not see the real Vietnam. Our real Vietnamese routes for motorbike are located far away from the cities, they can be the tranquil countryside roads where you can admire rustic villages and immense rice paddies, they can be the adventurous pass roads where you can conquer the highest mountains in Indochina, they can be long seaside roads where you can experience a wide range of terrains throughout 3 regions in Vietnam.


4. Friendly Locals

When travelling by cars, buses or boats, you might reach your destinations easily and stably but you cannot meet and communicate with the locals during the trip like travelling by motorbike does. Not like the ones who are running business or selling stuffs in big cities, the Vietnamese local people in the countryside are always helpful and friendly. Most of them just are not familiar with seeing foreigners in their areas, so do not feel unsecure when they glance at you all the time. You will soon recognize that they are always ready to help you in every situation. Ride and meet some now!



5. Flexibility

Taking a motorbike trip will offer you the opportunity to enjoy the most comfortable experience ever when you can do whatever you like, rest whenever you need or stop wherever you want to take beautiful photos. Besides, you can feel free to choose your own roads, or experience many obscured trails firsthand.

Explore The Charming Inle Lake

The peaceful life in Inle Lake

The image of boats sailing in the early morning, fishermen rowing boats and birds hunting for food… have featured Inle Lake, one of the two-largest freshwater lakes grasping peaceful and romantic beauty in Myanmar.


If you visit Myanmar without drop by Inle Lake (or inlay), it must be a big regret. The name of “Inle” means a large lake – one of two largest freshwater lakes. The lake belongs to Shan State, about 600 kilometers from Bagan and spreads an area of about 220 km2, the deepest about 6 meters.

From Bagan, you might take a bus to get Inle Lake. In order to fully explore the beauty of the lake, you should get there from 8 p.m to 4.30h of the next day. The bus fare is 11,000 kyat per person and visiting fare is 12,500 kyat per person. This visiting expense does not offer the train. Therefore, you must hire a boat which can carry 4 guests at the price of 12,000 kyats per day.


The ideal time to visit the lake is at 5.30 a.m. You definitely enjoy the cold air and foggy frosty weather of the morning at 15oC.

The sun begins to rise at 6 p.m. The very first sunlights of the morning that shine into the mist create a sparkling and alluring scene. This definitely makes you love at the first sight.

In addition to the immense beauty, Lake Inle impresses its visitors by the “weird” fishing method- rowing with one foot of fishermen.

The fishermen clamped their other leg in a cage. This cage will be raised high and lowered into the water.The thin nets around the cage prevent fishes from escaping. Some of them thrash the oars into the water to chase fishes into cages.


This traditional fishing method is considered to be environmentally friendly and safe for the ecological system of the lake.

The hovering seagulls on surface of the sea…

The fishermen start their catching journey when the frosts evaporate from the surface of the lake. Morning light probably makes it alluring as a charming water painting.

The sun climbs higher in the sky at 8 a.m. The gentle lake reflects the shadow of traditional stilt houses.


Inle Lake is home to Inthar people, a minority ethnic group in Myanmar. In Myanmar, Inthar means "lake-dweller".

You might see baby boys and girls selling Thanaka, a long-lasting traditional powder of this country. Thanaka Powder is said to be cool to the skin, tighten pores and prevent X-rays of sunlight.

Thakana powder is shaped in cubes. To put it on your face, you have to rub it on the “kyauk pyin” (a special dish made of stone), mix the powder with the water, then apply a thin layer on your face. All Burmese people use Thakana and consider it a great pride.


The Charming Phu Quoc during Rainy Days

As being raised and educated in the midland, I have long been familiar with the sea. However, I still dream of a “must – be – memorable” trip to Phu Quoc,  the “pearl” island of Vietnam.


On the first day, I was available at Tan Son Nhat Airport at 12:30 p.m to do the procedures for the flight to Phu Quoc at 2: 30 p.m. I stepped foot in that amazing land at 3 p.m. There was one thing interesting that the pearl island “welcomed” me by the drizzle. Therefore, I immediately thought of the situation that a young lady greeted her lover by an unknown emotion.


In the evening, I made an appointment with a group of friends on a business trip there. At 7 p.m while it was still raining outside, we met at the locally famous 343 restaurant that offered a variety of tasteful dishes at reasonable prices. I dropped night market where fresh seafood restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs gathered as Bui Vien Street in Saigon. In addition, the market sells unique souvenirs and local specialties, so you might buy as gifts for friends or family.


On the second day: We woke up in the early morning to greet the very first rays of sunshine penetrating into our room. Then, we made a visit to Sao Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The beach was 25 kilometers from our hotel, so we got there by motorbike. Setting foot on the beach, we were immediately overwhelmed by the pristine blue sea water, smooth sandy beaches, and fresh air. Therefore, we couldn’t help staring at the sea. Imagining that you lie leisurely on the beach on a sunny day and listen to the melodious songs of the wave kissing the shore, you definitely find your life wonderful. Thus, the beach could be an ideal place for those who want to “escape” from the hustle and bustle of the urban life.  


We got back to the hotel to begin our journey to famous tourist attractions on the island. We had lunch at Le Giang restaurant and grasped our time to relax after that. Interestingly, it was still raining as if a “’ falling  - in – love” young lady was crying. Thus, I fully enjoyed the change of season on that amazing island.


Our first destination in the afternoon was Dinh Cau temple, the symbol and hottest tourist spot of the island.  It is an odd-shaped natural formation in Phu Quoc Island, in which the fishermen pray to before heading out to the open sea. Located just next to Duong Dong Fishing Habor, it features a brightly-coloured lighthouse and Buddhist shrine, making it a popular spot for photography among travelers.


Dinh Cau Temple was constructed in 1937 to commemorate Thien Hau (the goddess of the sea), whom the locals believe in providing protection for fishermen heading out to the open sea. There are 29 winding steps to reach this temple’s rooftop terrace, where you can hold panoramic sunset views of Dinh Cau Beach, traditional fishing boats, Duong Dong Town, and neighboring islets.


We also dropped by Son Sim Wine shop (at Group 1, Cua Lap Hamlet, Duong To Commune) to learn the process of processing the special wine made from a local fruit named  « sim », a specialty of Phu Quoc. Moreover, you definitely enjoy this flavor wine for free. How amazing!


In the late afternoon, we made a visit to the famous Van Ninh fishing village to explore local daily life. Sauntering around the village, we saw an 80 – year – old grandmother immersing herself in water to sell what she did catch, so we did support her. Additionally, we enjoy fresh seafood right on the raft boat of a fisherman.


The next morning, woke up in the early morning to have breakfast in Duong Dong Market and buy some specialties as gifts for friends and families.



Before leaving the amazing island, we visited the bee farm to explore the process of breeding bees and processing honey. Bees are bred in small boxes placed in the durian and rambutan garden. Bear in mind, you should wear a special hat to avoid being bitten by queen bees, drones, and worker bees. Moreover, you definitely observe the whole process of making honey if you buy it and enjoy tasteful products made of honey.


Thus, we came back Ho Chi Minh city while still thinking of the marvelous island. 


Exploring The Cloud – and – Star Paradise 150 Kilometers from Hanoi

If you do not have enough time to travel to the Northwest of the country to explore the “breath – taking” cloud paradises of Ta Xua and Y Ty, you could definitely make a visit to the charming Dong Cao wild prairie that is only 150 kilometers from Hanoi.


Located in Thach Son commune, Son Dong district, Bac Giang, the 600 meters – high Dong Cao Steppe has fascinated visitors by the flat terrain, vast lush green lawn, and cool and fresh air all year round. Therefore, it is undoubtedly an ideal destination for camping for families and young travelers. Giving it a try, you surely grasp “unforgettable” moments and “nice” pictures to “show off” with your friends.


Passing such a winding road of the gentle terraced rice fields and the scattered Dao village, we “embraced” two memorable days in Dong Cao. Tent, fire, all necessary gadget were all available so that we could fully enjoy 2 – day vacation in this amazing land. There is one thing interesting that the local residents offer firewood, place of setting up the tent, even burn the fire for you, so every thing is ready for a warmly BBQ party, dance, and sing. How amazing!


When it was getting dark and the fire was burned, we faced an amazing scene that seemed to “melten” our little heart. We saw the sparkling “full – of – star” sky that we could not see in the city. To fully enjoy that “extraordinary” scenery and moment, we just lay leisurely on the grass and reach the hand to the sky. Surely, you also can’t help being “mesmerized”’ by that scene.


If you get there, you should wake up early to greet the charming dawn and “hunt” the cloud that seems to be touched by your hand. You must be “overwhelmed” by the cloud paradise facing you. The images of the thick white clouds “blanket” the whole valley and the golden sun “bathed” the sky are surely “ one – of – all – kind” scenery that you have a chance to witness in your life. I called my friend to climb up to the mountain to watch the exhilarating sunrise and captured that moment with the camera on our hands.




The higher it gets, the more extraordinary and immense the cloud paradise is. Only a moment later, we had a chance to see the first rays of sunshine sparkling in the thick clouds, red and yellow color mixed to create the most charming dawn that I have ever seen. Then the sky is blue and the sunshine bathes in the whole prairie. 


Standing on the steppe, you definitely see little boy raising buffalos. Thus, you will see how peaceful and tranquil the life is. As a result, Dong Cao is really an ideal place to "escape" away from the urban life for those who do not have much time at the weekend. 


The best time that you should make a visit to Dong Cao is the summer (from June to August) to avoid rain and the autumn (from September to November). Bear in mind, you should prepare all necessary things for camping and clear the garbage before leaving.
