From the Mekong Delta to the China border, the country will astound you and the people will capture your heart. Riding on the right in chaotic conditions is challenging, exhilarating and a lot of fun – riding in the country surrounded by every hue of green is a real joy.
While visiting this fascinating country you will experience bustling Saigon with its mix of modern, colonial and traditional architecture. You can enjoy a cup of coffee at the Hotel Continental where Graham Green’s “The Quiet American” was set, or bargain for that ‘must have’ purchase in the busy markets. After a tantalising first day’s ride, we will relax and laze in a boat while cruising down the tiny waterways off the mighty Mekong River and in the morning take in the spectacle of the water markets. We will also ride the scenic mountain roads of the Central Highlands and along the China border; we’ll visit the ancient imperial capital of Hue, the golden beaches of the South China Sea and stay in the distinctly French colonial capital of Hanoi. And lastly, we experience the serene magic of World Heritage listed, Ha Long Bay with its 1,969 pinnacle islands.
On this Vietnam tour, you can participate in the excitement of a new culture, indulge yourself in the gastronomic delights of the fabulous cuisine and meet the friendly people in a beautiful, safe and welcoming country. All this and more, while satisfying your passion - riding a motorcycle!
In this itinerary and also nearly everywhere else, you will notice the southern commercial capital of Ho Chi Minh City being referred to, especially in print, as HCMC and also Saigon. The reason for the abbreviation HCMC is simple, expediency, but the name Saigon is a little more interesting. When the south fell at the end of the Vietnam war, the north renamed the city in honour of their leader, Ho Chi Minh. However, the name Saigon has not only lingered for sentimental reasons and habitual use, but is also the accepted and official name for the city centre and CBD (also known as District One).Contact us.
