How many days is it best to follow the Ha Giang loop?
Ha Giang is the most impressive region in Vietnam. Here you will find the most beautiful mountains and the most authentic minority villages. You will regret here if you fall short; the longer the better. But Ha Giang was not developed for tourism, so this also means that accommodations and restaurants are very basic. This gives a more authentic feeling, but can also take some people out of their comfort zone.
What is the quality of the accommodation in the tour?
Ha Giang is not developed for tourism, which means that you will usually stay in simple homestays. A very authentic experience, but not a luxury either. All accommodations have a private room and hot showers. During winter we use more hotels, due to some homestays can get very cold in this period.
What do I do with all my luggage?
You can leave your bulky luggage at the office in Ha Giang City or at your hotel in Hanoi and bring only your essentials. No problem to bring backpacks on the motorcycle. They are located on the back of the bike, so you don’t have to hold it. Suitcases are not possible on the motorcycle. If you are taking the car there is room for suitcases.
How safe is a motorcycle tour in Ha Giang?
There is little traffic in Ha Giang, but the roads are winding through mountain passes and are sometimes of poor quality. But the guides on the motorcycle (Easy Riders) are professional drivers who have done this journey countless times. They can guarantee your safety and let you enjoy a great experience without worry.
Can I drive a motorcycle myself?
It is possible to drive in Ha Giang loop yourself, however we do not offer this option for the following reason: officially it is illegal to drive a motorcycle without a Vietnamese motorcycle license in Vietnam; this also means that your insurance will not fully cover you in the event of an accident. If you do not have much experience or if you are not a confident driver, we do not recommend that you drive yourself.
Is there a minimum age for being on the back of a motorbike?
Minimum age guidelines exist, but it is more important for children to be confident and fit on the back of the bike. Contact us for more information.
Has the route been established?
You can talk to the guide if you want to change anything in the Ha Giang loop. The guide can change the plan within the possibilities of time, weather and distance.
What about the weather? Can I do the Ha Giang loop all year round?
The weather in the mountains can be difficult to predict, but even when it rains you can still follow the Ha Giang motor loop. Your luggage is protected against rain with a rain cover. Even if the weather isn’t perfect, this trip is still one of the best experiences you can do in Vietnam.
