Day 3: Mai Chau Motorbike tour back to Hanoi. ( B, L )
There are many ways to ride back to Hanoi from Mai Chau. We suggest you take 2 different roads below :
Option 1: Motorbike tour on the old French road along the Da river- 190 km.
We will go back to road No 6 and take a turn to a 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 – 240 km.
We suggest you take option 2 if you are an experienced motorbike rider. There are more interests on this road, especially you will have a chance to have a great motorbike tour on the Ho Chi Minh trail. However, it is a longer and busier road. We will count the time to be in Hanoi before rush hours and finish the short but best northern Vietnam motorbike tour safely.
