So, yeah Ha Giang! Ha Giang is a province in the North-East of Vietnam. It is very close to China, a cheeky cross over the boarder? Hmm, maybe, lets see! I think it is the most beautiful place in the north, breathtaking scenery, such an incredible drive through the mountains, forest and towns. I highly recommend you to do it either with a tour group such as Flipside or buy a motorbike yourself and be your own guide. Have a look at their website, Flipside Adventure Travel
To discover the north of wonderful country, Vietnam! The trip between Yen Minh and Dong Van, and then across the Mai Pi Leng Pass to Meo Vac is quite mind-blowing and so spectacular. The most amazing road, and my, what a ride!
There are so many great passes to discover in Vietnam, Mai Pi Leng is one of them.
You will not regret it! It is the best thing I have done so far in Vietnam. You get to see small towns that are not properly developed for tourism, but many homestays and motels. If you have got the time and money. I urge you to do it! I have recommended this to a few travelers in Hanoi, and they went for it and they did say. “That’s the best thing I ever did” So, don’t think…Just do it!
Motorbike Adventure! Vroooooom Vroooom!
So, with this adventure, I did it with Flipside tour because:
- Iv’e never riden a motorbike in my life.
- Going with a tour guide gives you peace of mind incase of break downs or run out of fuel ( That happened to a person who went on the tour with me!)
- Moments you could never have.
- And meet new friends.
Did I cross over to China to have a beer? Yes I did!
