On this adventure, we will take you to ride on the amazing routes in the Northern of Vietnam. The Central North is well known as the area of high mountains and panoramic mountain views. There are many villages of different minority people in the area offering homestays. This is a great chance to experience yourself at first hand, the lifestyle of the local ethnic minorities and wonderful hospitable cozy atmosphere. Whilst, the North East mountainous areas of Ba Be Lake, Cao Bang and Ha Giang offer unique opportunities for rugged motorcycle rides with awesome routes. Compared with the Central North, this area has less tourist travelers, but strongly attracts hardy travelers who crave for going deeply through remote areas and just taking a glimpse of ethnic minority people. Overnight on the fantastic boat in Halong bay and explore Catba island area is both of amazing places in Vietnam has been resisted and recognized by famous Word Heritage Organization.
