1 Day Motorbike Tour Ba Vi Mountain
Ba Vi Mountain National Park is only a couple of hours ride due west from Hanoi. It’s a popular weekend retreat for the Vietnamese capital’s residents and makes for a great 1-day motorbike tour. In fact, there is so much to do and see at Ba Vi and its surrounding area that a longer 2-day tour does it more justice.
Basic Itinerary for a one day Motorbike tour
We depart from downtown Hanoi at a time of your convenience although the earlier the better. We’ll eat a local breakfast and then head to the city’s outskirts.
Our first stop is at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism. The 1500 ha area gives visitors an insight into the lives of Vietnam’s 54 different ethnic minorities. Here we can see local style housing, handmade crafts and meet minority artisans. After refreshments we will continue on to the base of Ba Vi and begin the picturesque 12km climb to the top. Along the way we visit temples, French Colonial ruins and even a cacti garden. Once at the top riders can choose to hike to 1 of the nearby temples or simply take in the scenery before we descend around halfway for our lunch.
