Detail Itinerary

Day 1: Hanoi Arrival
Welcome to Vietnam Scooter and Cruise!
Undoubtably one of the most memorable ways to see Vietnam is on the bike - two wheels in any form. This lesuirely ride allows for ample opportunities to stop and enjoy the moment and the stunning scenery that will surround you.
Upon arrival, we will meet you and transfer you to your hotel. Located in the heart of the CBD you will have the opportunity to step out and witness first hand the motor and pedestrian traffic.

Day 2: City Tour and warm-up ride (B,L)
We meet today for a full day warm-up ride around Hanoi. Taking in the boulevards, lakes and local attractions we will offer many opportunities for reviving cafe breaks and stops for sightseeing.
In true Hanoian style we will break for lunch at a highly popular restaurant and learn the art of parking!

Day 3: Ha Noi-Mai Chau (B,L,D)(Riding distant of 130 km)
Today we pack light and take the scooters westwards for a 3 hour ride to Mai Chau. Traversing the rice paddies and limestone outcrops of Kim Boi we will ride the mountain passes of Hoa Binh. Nestled in amongst those steep mountain ranges is the stunning plateau and our homestay destination of Mai Chau.
Hosted by local families, we will spend the afternoon exploring the surrounding villages.

Day 4: Mai Chau-Ha Noi (B,L)(Riding distant of 130km)
We farewell Mai Chau and return to Hanoi via the local roads. Riding at a relaxed pace this leg of the trip meanders through many small villages, local markets, farming communities and scenerey common throughout rural Vietnam.
Arriving in Hanoi in the afternoon, you are free to explore at your own pace with or without scooter.

Day 5: Ha Noi-Ha Long Bay (B,L,D)
Today we head to the world reknown Halong Bay. With vivid descriptions such as "The Bay of the Descending Dragon", Halong is a great place to sit back, relax and reminisce about your recent biking adventures. On board our well appointed replica junk boat we will spend the day cruising secluded bays and limestone outcrops. Meals on board will include freshly caught local seafood.

Day 6 : Ha Long Bay- Ha Noi (B,L)
Sunrise on the bay is a unique experience. Enjoy another day of swimming, kayaking and relaxation. After a leisurely lunch on board we will return to Hanoi. Balmy nights in Hanoi are great for experiencing the lively local atmosphere. Squeeze in some last minute shopping for your loved ones or take a sidewalk tour of the old quarter.

Day 7 : Ha Noi Departure (B)
Today is the final day of Vietnam Scooter & Cruise. After a classic Vietnamese breakfast we invite you to join us on a complimenting Niche TravelTM experience. For those departing Vietnam, we will accompany and farewell you at Noi Bai Airport.
