Day 4: Mai Chau Motorbike Ride Back to Hanoi. ( B, L )
There are some ways to ride back to Hanoi from Mai Chau. As an Expert for Vietnam Motorbike Tour, we suggest you take 2 best roads below:
Option 1: Motorbike tour on the old French road along the Da river- 185 km.
We will go back to road No 6 and take a turn to the small and less traveled French road that goes along the Da river lake. The view here is imposing. The road is winding and lies between the mountain and the lake. This is one of the good Vietnam motorbike tours in the northern area that we strongly recommend. We will count the time to be in Hanoi before rush hours and safely end the Central North Vietnam Motorbike Tour from Hanoi.
Option 2: Motorbike tour on Ho Chi Minh trail back to Hanoi – 240 km.
Vietnam Motorbike Tours suggests you take option 2 if you are an experienced motorbike rider. There are more interests on this road, especially you will have a chance to have a great motorbike tour on the Ho Chi Minh trail. However, it is much longer. We will count the time to be in Hanoi before rush hours and finish the Central – North Vietnam Motorbike Tour safely.
