What is the quality of the accommodation in the tour?
Ha Giang is not developed for tourism, meaning that you will mostly stay in basic homestays. A very authentic experience, but also no luxury. All accommodation include private room and hot showers.

Traffic is low in Ha Giang, but the roads are winding through mountain passes and sometimes from poor quality. Nevertheless the drivers (Easy Riders) are proffesional drivers who have done this trip countless times. They can ensure your safety and let you enjoy this amazing experience without a worry.

Can I drive motorbike myself?
It is possible to drive the Ha Giang loop by motorbike yourself. But please be aware of the following: officially it is illigal to drive a motorbike without a Vietnamese motorbike licence in Vietnam; this also means your insurance will not cover you fully. If you don’t have a lot of experience or if you are not a confident driver, we don’t recommend driving by yourself. If you do want to drive, we support you and you can follow the guide.

Is there a minimum age?
Minimum age guidelines do exist, but it is more important that children are confident and fit sitting on a motorbike. Contact us for more information.

Is the itinerary fixed?
You can talk with the guide if you want to change something in the Ha Giang loop tour program. 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 tour all year?
Weather in the mountains can be hard to predict, but even when it is raining you can still do the Ha Giang motorbike loop. Your luggage will be protected by rain and wear a rainjacket. Even when the weather is not perfect, this trip is still one of the best experiences you can do in Vietnam.

How many days is it best to do the Ha Giang loop?
Ha Giang is the most impressive region in Vietnam. You find here the most beautifull mountains and the most autentic minority villages. You will regret staying too short here; the longer the better. But, Ha Giang is not developped for tourism, so this also means accommodations and restaurants are very basic. This gives a more authentic feeling, but also can bring some people out of their comfort zone.
