Tour Activity/Theme: Adventure, Motorcycling, Ecotourism, Ethnic village, Sublime nature, Off the beaten track, Mountains, Plateau, Waterfall

The motorcycle tour embarks you on an adventure journey to the less visited Central Highlands and the scenic coastal region in southern Vietnam in 10 days 9 nights.

Riding a motorbike yourself allows you the freedom to travel at your own pace, to stop for photos anywhere you like and to venture into secret corners which are not accessible by the crowds who come by bus.

The Central Highlands in Vietnam are characterized by rolling hills, serene lakes, sublime waterfalls. The region is home to a number of ethnic minorities and still off the tourist track by far. The coastal region in southern Vietnam is known for a myriad number of beaches most of which are still untouched by mass tourism. On the trip, we ride most of the time on scenic quiet roads; the only busy road is the last leg of the journey from Vung Tau to Saigon.Nha Rong in Kon Tum
