This is one of our unique motorbike tours in North Vietnam, Within 4 days, the experienced team of Hanoi motorcycle tour will take you faraway from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi city by riding motorbike on the back-roads through countryside to the mountain area where you can find difficulties to see other tourists but easily to meet the smiling faces of the colorful hill tribes or amazing view of mountain, and nature. The tour does not offer famous attractions but it really a great short motorbike ride to experience the hidden beauty of Vietnam!
Day 1: Hanoi – Mai Chau: 170 km (L,D – Home stay)
Mai Chau valley’s probably the most famous attraction in this short motorbike tour. Like many Vietnam motorcycle tour organizers doing tours to this beautiful valley, but we promise to provide a unique route to the valley which offers more beautiful view of countryside and more enjoyable ride on back roads instead of riding on the regular highway No 6 to the valley. It must be the highlight of this 4 day motorbike tour in Vietnam.
Day 2: Mai Chau – Phu Yen: 150 Km
After walking around the beautiful village of the Thai people in the valley, we’ll get back to the bikes and keep motorbike touring in northern Vietnam. Distance of 150 km sounds short to ride for a day but it’s not. This Mai Chau motorbike tour to Phu Yen can’t be end early because the ride is mostly on winding passes in which you can stop for the picture on every meters of the road. We will cross the Moc Chau plateau where you can have a short off-road motorbike ride through the green tea fields or large garden of plum and peach trees. After lunch in Moc Chau, we’ll continue the beautiful North Vietnam motorbike tour on the mountain passes and along the picturesque Da river lake. We’ll be in Phu Yen at about 4:30 pm.
Day 3: Phu Yen – Thac Ba lake: 160 km (B,L,D – Home stay)
It’s another short motorbike ride in North Vietnam but it should be another highlight of this 4 day Vietnam motorcycle tour.

Lunch will be in Yen Bai IMAG0805town, after lunch we’ll hit the road down to Thac Ba lake arrive the lake at about 3:00 pm. Leave the bikes in the village of the friendly Dzao people which located on the lake bank then enjoy short boat trip on Thac Ba lake.
