Day 3: Motorbike tour back to Hanoi ( B , L ) .
There are many ways to ride back to Hanoi from Mai Chau. As an Expert for Vietnam Motorbike Tour, we suggest you to take 2 different roads below:
Option 1: Motorbike tour on the old French road along the Da river- 170 km.
We will go back to the road No 6 and take a turn to small and less traveled French road that leads us going along the Black river lake. The view here is like in Ha long bay. This is a good motorbike tour back to Hanoi that we strongly recommend.
Option 2: Motorbike tour on Ho Chi Minh trail back to Hanoi – 210 km.
Vietnam Motorbike -Tours suggests you to take the option 2 if you are experienced motorbike riders. There are more interests on this road, especially you will have chance to have great motorbike tour on Ho Chi Minh trail. However, it is longer and busier road.
