Vietnam North West Motorbike Tours
North West Motorbike Tours give all riders the adventure passion of motorcycling and riding offroad trips to Vietnam Northwest provinces namely Lao Cai, Yen Bai, Dien Bien, Hoa Binh, Lai Chau, Son La…by dirt bike, moped, scooter. This subregion is located on right bank of Hong River. The remote northwest of Vietnam appeals to those wanting to get off the beaten track in one of Vietnam’s most beautiful, unaffected and untouristed areas. The travellers who do venture to Mai Chau, Son La and Dien Bien Phu often do so by way of a hired jeep and driver or do it by motorbike, while those striking straight north to Vietnam’s hilltribe capital of Sapa avail themselves of the comfortable and efficient overnight train to Sapa. Whichever way you’re headed, prepare yourself for stunning scenery as you pass through spectacular ravines and over breathtaking passes. Best known for the burgeoning trekking centre of Sapa, there is a lot more worth investigating in this part of the country. The remote French firebase of Dien Bien Phu remains a drawcard, but it’s as much the attraction of the trip there as the town itself that is worth visiting. A trip to Dien Bien Phu is easily combined with an approach to Sapa via “the back way” over the Fansipan pass (Vietnam’s highest), allowing for more stunning scenery and the opportunity to see some of the less touristed parts of the country. Another popular destinations is Mai Chau whose day-trekking and stunning scenery have helped it develop into a small tourist centre en-route to Dien Bien Phu — many trips from Hanoi run out to Mai Chau — and with good reason. It also forms a comfortable spot to rest those weary limbs before continuing onwards and up into the hills.
