Motorcycling is popular with locals and tourists alike. As motorcycling is the main mode of transport in Vietnam, it can give a particularly authentic impression of travelling in the country.
Renting or buying a bike is possible in many towns. Also consider motorbike adventure tours, which take you on multi-day tours to remote areas of the country. Most tours include accommodation, fuel, helmets, drivers and tickets to local attractions. Guides are usually fluent in English or French and offer tailor-made tours on request. Motorbike sightseeing tours are similar but more local, specific to a city or region, and may focus on dining, shopping or sightseeing.
