This beautiful motorcycle tour especially prepared for ladies is also accessible to newer riders! This 10 day tour will bring you close to the real Vietnam, which charmed us so much. The tour is made special by lush vegetation, impressive landscapes, winding mountain roads, very comfortable hotels and the visit of historical sites.
We will start our Vietnamese adventure in Hanoi, in a comfortable hotel located in the heart of the old quarter. Also the clothing shopping heaven! We’ll then head towards the incredible Mai Chau viewpoint. The Nam Son and Phmng Nah caves with their giant stalactites are next. It is the largest cave system in the world! The Doong, the Phong Nha Dark Cave and the Paradise Cave can also be visited! We’ll certainly make a stop to see the ancient water wheels, originally created by ethnic Thai people, but still in use today to irrigate the rice fields. Back to motorcycling, we’ll have a chance to test our cornering skills too, along beautiful mountain roads surrounded by jungle. We’ll then slowly make our way South towards the jewel of central Vietnam: Hue and Hoi An. The Vinh Moc Tunnel complex will take you back to the Vietnam war era. After riding in the jungle of the A Shau valley, seeing the mountains and the tunnels, one wonders what led Americans to think they could win. One of the last stops will be Hue, famous for the Vietnamese emperors’ tombs. We end our motorcycle journey in Hoi An (Unesco site), known for its unique french colonial touch, but also for the gorgeous A Bang beach!
Traveling through different regions of the country we will also have a chance to try different types of Vietnamese cuisine – no comparison with the fast-food joints back home! Those who think Vietnamese food is essentially Pho soup and spring rolls are in for a pleasant surprise! Vietnam food is varied, always fresh and delicious.
If you want to see Vietnam at a pace which allows you to visit and also take in the moment: feel, taste and experience. If you want a tour that goes beyond just riding but has also relaxing moments just for you in some of the best hotels. A motorcycle adventure during which you feel you reconnect with yourself and have the chance to bond with other like-minded female riders. If you want all this mixed with some beautiful motorcycling moments along scenic routes, this tour is for you: Join us!
Those who wish could extend their stay with a 5-star cruise (1 night/2 days) in the world-famous Ha Long bay.
We chose the KLX150 for this tour: it is light and predictable, has low seat height and has enough power to make it enjoyable on Vietnamese roads.
