Motorbike tour – Ha Giang Loop

5 reasons to motorcycle in amazing Ha Giang

  1. The mysterious landscape along the Chinese border is probably the most striking in the country : a mythical combination of conical limestone peaks and deep, majestic valleys.
  2. Considered by many as the last frontier for adventurous travel in Vietnam, Ha Giang already has an almost legendary status among independent Vietnamese and foreign travellers alike.
  3. Ha Giang is home to 19 ethnic minority groups. It’s a unique chance to discover north Vietnam tribes dialect and culture : Their clothes, food, music and traditions.
  4. In the last few years road conditions between Ha Giang, Dong Van and Meo Vac have improved, making access to this remoted part of the country relatively easy. With mountain passes hanging onto cliff-faces high above roaring rivers, and back-roads threading through forests of limestone pinnacles, it’s ideal territory for a motorbike road trip.
  5. This is the perfect time to drive the Northeast Vietnam tour; before traveller numbers rise.
Ha Giang is the Vietnam’s northeast province (and also the name of it’s biggest city).
