Mekong Delta day tour – Cai Rang floating market

Mr. Ninh arranged a wonderful trip for us from Saigon to the Cai Rang floating market. I tried to arrange a day trip to Cai Rang with other more reviewed Mekong delta tour groups with no luck. They would only go to Cai Be in one day, which is not the same as Cai Rang.  All in all, a great tour and just what I wanted!

Hoi An: Pre-tour day – day before actual tour

AAT will pick you up from Danang airport and take you to your pre-tour accommodation located in Hoi An.   In times gone by Hoi An was the principal port of the Cham Kingdom, which controlled the strategic spice trade with Indonesia from the 7th to the 10th century and was a major international port in the 16th and 17th centuries – and now the foreign influences of architecture  are discernible to this day.  There will be some time for sightseeing- so, if you can, make your way to Lantern Street in the world heritage old town. Enjoy a break at one of the many bars for a cold ale. . .or 2. At night we provide a welcome dinner, along with a comprehensive briefing of the journey.   AAT will also provide a map of our intended journey. This is a great time to meet the other riders.

Day 1: Hoi An / Danang city tour

Nowhere in Vietnam is changing as fast as Danang. Da Nang marks the halfway point between the capital in the north, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City in the South.  Da Nang is also known as the tourist capital of South Central Vietnam.  This is a great day for you to be acquainted with the bikes and riding in Vietnam.  Our guides will make this a pleasant and safe experience as you follow their lead.  You will ride over the Golden Dragon Bridge, the longest bridge in Vietnam.   We take time to visit the fine white sand of China Beach.  Visiting Mỹ Sơn, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in South-Central Vietnam, and is believed to be the longest inhabited archaeological site in Indochina.  We also ride in the Hoi An countryside.

Day 2: Hoi An – A Luoi (240km)

This is a reasonably long day and you will still have some fun riding. Our destination is A Luoi situated in the North Central Coast region of Vietnam. It is located west in the highly mountainous area of A Shau Valley bordering Laos. You will experience firsthand why our XR150 motorbikes are considered possibly the best touring bike for Vietnam.  This area was the location of several US military bases that saw fierce battles, including Tacon Airport and Hamburger Hill.  You will be inspired by the area’s natural attractions. At most times of the year you’re guaranteed to have flowing waterfalls.  Don’t be surprised you may have the spectacular ridges and valleys of the greater Annamite mountain range all to yourself.

Day 3: A Luoi – Khe Sanh (100km)

Don’t be misled by the short distance. Today we travel along the eastern Ho Chi Minh Highway through the historic DMZ, with a must visit to Tacon Airport Museum.  The battle around Khe Sanh was fought as part of the Tet Offensive, though for the purposes of History it has taken on a dimension of its own.  The Ho Chi Minh trail was used as a supply route during the conflict of the late 60’s and early 70’s. The now concrete highway twists and turns through the valleys that are the borders between Vietnam and Laos. Be ready for some fun.  The scenery is mesmerising.   It is a remote area of Vietnam that gives some extraordinary riding opportunities.

Day 4: Khe Sanh – Phong Nha(240km)

Today we are heading to Phong Nha Township; you will be totally rewarded along the way.  This short journey is packed full of the best riding available in Vietnam.   Round every corner you will find another mountain road with views to blow you away.  The road twists and turns to provide fun for the keen biker and lets you further explore the Jeep’s capabilities.   There is not much traffic along this road but it is still best to remain alert for the occasional truck delivering goods to the remote towns or the occasional cow that prefers the ease of moving along the road or the warmth of the surface for a quick rest.

Day 5: Phong Nha visit caves (riding about 30km or jump on van)

A rest day from the bikes and a day to explore this quiet little town situated in the middle of the World Heritage listed Phong Nha National Park. For the adventurous it’s time to go cave exploring! Visit Paradise Cave, one of the worldslargest caves and marvel at the natural beauty of this spectacular form. Phong Nha is also home to the cave system that takes the name of the town. Entrance is via the river and the system extends for over 38km towards the Laos border. Used as a shrine by the original Champa people and more recently as a refuge during the conflict years. Bring your walking shoes, your camera and be prepared for spectacular photo opportunities.

Day 6: Phong Nha – Hue (227km)

Today you head back to the coast and travel along the eastern HCM Hwy, through the “DMZ”, to the old capital of Hue. Along the way, if time permits, you can visit the Vinh Moc Tunnels where, life carried on up to 3 storeys underground during US bombardments nearly 50 years ago. Hue is home to the UNESCO World Heritage listed old Nguyen Dynasty capital- once the religious, cultural and political capital of Vietnam. Situated only a shortdistance from the modern city, the citadel harks back to the time of Vietnam’s emperors and is considered a must see by many visitors to this country.

Day 7: Hue – Da Nang (130km)

Today you will head down the coast, back towards the starting town of Hoi An. But before we leave the town proper we visit the Citidal.  You will ride up the Hai Van Pass located near Da Nang- a road made famous in the Top Gear Vietnam Special. Plenty of spots for that special photo and plenty of road for that fun ride. Time to chill out again and enjoy a few more drinks while reminiscing about the previous week touring this special part of this wonderful country and discussing when to return and see even more.
