Early in 1990s, tourism in Vietnam was at the beginning of a new era. It’s said first tourists landed in the North of Vietnam all had to come Northwest. As because people knew and curious of Dien Bien Phu, last battle field in French war and Sapa, ruined town in the clouds. And following, numerous bikers had done the same route for long long time, two decades since then. Northwest is always the most picked route to ride, and an absolute be-loved region to travel in Vietnam.
We come with an idea to bring most authentic and spectacular Northwest motorcycle tour as it originally should be. It’s about Thai ethnic culture in the homeland of Thai people in Vietnam. It’s about all single tracks through unwholesome environment which are still unknown to the crowd of tourists. It’s about all mountain passes that the names had become legend in Vietnam: Pha Din, Khau Pha, O Quy Ho. And it’s about valleys of terraced rice-fields now recognized as National Heritage Sites.
The nature in Northwest features lust and green plateaus, high mountain ranges including the peak of whole Southeast Asia, Fansipan mount. Rough terrain here creates most exotic villages settled beneath hill and mountain foot. All those narrow valleys are lively with full crops in season.
Vietnam Northwest motorcycle tour reflects a real fun riding into its nature, at the same time, gives you an unexpected chance to experience a land of rich culture.
