A 19 day motorcyle tour of mountainous region of North Vietnam bordering China. The tour will start from Kuala Lumpur via Chiang Mai in Thailand and Muang La in Laos. The tour is planned for November 2019 and ideally I am looking for 10 riders to share the cost of entry permits and escorts for the Laos and Vietnam leg of the tour.
North Vietnam mountainous regions has some of the best riding and scenic routes.
The Vietnam section of the ride will begin at Dien Bien Phu. Then onwards to Sapa, Lao Cai, Ha Giang, Lung Cu, Dong Van, Cao Bang, Ban Gioc, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Ninh Bin, Vinh and finally exiting at Cau Treo into Laos.
We’ll spent a night in Vientiane (Laos) before heading to Bangkok. The final leg of the tour will take us south to Hatyai and finally back to KL.
There will be 2 rest days in Hanoi and Bangkok.
As the organizer, I don’t require any payment and I will pay for my own expenses for this trip. However we do have to pre-pay for certain expenses susch as entry permits, escort fees and accommodation in Laos and Vietnam.
The estimated cost for food, lodging, fuel, permits, escorts etc is RM9,000. This cost is based on accommodation of 3-star and above. Based on experience, proper lodging and food is important on extended tours such as this. However you may opt for cheaper lodging if you so wish.
