Vietnam Upcoming Motorbike Tour Late Availability – Offroad Vietnam Motorbike Adventures

by Anh Wu @ Offroad Vietnam Adventures

Offroad Vietnam Adventure Travel website offers extensive information about preparing your self-guided or guided tours on two wheels, 4 wheels, treks, cruises etc. or any type of adventure tours in Vietnam and neighbouring countries

LATE AVAILABILITY OF VIETNAM MOTORBIKE TOURS WELCOME to the tour updates page of OFFROAD VIETNAM Motorbike Tour Operator! This is a quite extensive website that covers adventure tours in Vietnam. However, most are motorcycle tours. You will find everything you need to know about guided or unguided trips. In addition, we have information about preparing your trips, Vietnam country, and people etc. This specific page offers motorbike tour late availability from Hanoi, Vietnam. Offroad Vietnam provides private and customized motorbike tours in Vietnam. In other words, we don’t run set-scheduled trips. Many of our customers book strictly private (closed door) tours while some of them want to have more riders tagged along to have more fun and save some money. You can either start a ride and we post an update to get more people for you or join one of the existing trips. In fact, an open door trip usually has the rider(s) with different riding experiences. Therefore, if you care about strangers in the group, you’d better book a strictly private tour. Finally, we give no guarantee about getting more riders but will try our best. Please follow this link to find out late availability you could join. Contact us at offroadvietnam@gmail.com for more details.

Conquérir les routes sinueuses du haut, virages en épingle et rencontrer de vraies personnes locales qui accueillent les étrangers en tant qu’invités spéciaux qui apportent la bonne chance dans leurs foyers. La moto reste probablement la meilleure mode déplacement vers la liberté que vous pouvez vous arrêter où et quand vous le souhaitez. Sentir les nids de poule sous votre ceinture, rencontrer les enfants, serrer la main et prendre une tasse de thé vert avec la population locale dans les cafés en bordure de route vous donnent un vraie Vietnam. Les routes de montagne venteux, les rizières vertes luxuriantes, la route historique 6 et la route 4, la légendaire piste Ho Chi Minh, Sapa brumeux, Ha Giang nuageux et la baie d’Halong pittoresque sont que quelques endroits incontournable et bien plus encore vous attend découvrir. Surfant sur la campagne vide et routes de montagne est toujours un sentiment différent des routes encombrées dans les grandes villes. La limite de vitesse au Vietnam n’est que 60 kilomètres par heure et on roule plus lentement tout d’abord assurer la sécurité et d’autre part profiter de la vue impeccable. Pour nos guides, chaque voyage est une nouvelle découverte et une chance de se faire des amis et tisser des relations qui à la fin est une valeur ajoutée pour l’ensemble du trajet. Ils sont tous formés à la réparation mécanique, ils parlent vietnamien, anglais et quelques langues dialectales. Loin des grandes villes, les gens agitent la main et disent “bonjour” lorsque vous passez. Ils se réuniront autour de vous quand vous arrêtez pour vous accueillir, toucher votre peau et essayer de comprendre pourquoi vous êtes si poilus ainsi que de regarder les motos car ils ont à peine jamais vu une comme ça avant. Les aventures les plus populaires que nous offrons sont ceux guidées en moto (plus de 500 visites et plus de 2.000 clients). Offroad Vietnam est le premier et original agence de voyage en moto en organisant exclusivement des voyages en motos japonais au Nord Vietnam.

Die Touren werden von professionellen Fahrern für Fahrer entwickelt, um ein anderes Vietnam entfernt erleben vom Massentourismus. Bei uns können Sie Venture vielerorts weniger gereist, weniger besucht, unberührten und noch nicht in die Führung Bücher erwähnt. Die Eroberung der hohen kurvigen Straßen, Haarnadelkurven und Treffen echten Menschen vor Ort, die Ausländer willkommen als Gäste, die Glück bringen in ihre Heimat. Motorrad ist wahrscheinlich der beste Weg zur Freiheit, wie Sie aufhören können, wo und wann Sie wollen. Fühlen Schlaglöcher unter Ihrem Gürtel, treffen die Kinder, Hände schütteln und eine Tasse grünen Tee mit der lokalen Bevölkerung in den am Straßenrand “Cafés” bieten The Real Vietnam. Windy Bergstraßen, sattgrüne Reisfelder, historische Highway 6, Highway 4 und Dien Bien Phu Schlachtfeld legendären Ho Chi Minh Trail / Road, Khe Sanh combat Basis, Küsten-Highway 1, neblig Sapa, bewölkt Ha Giang, prächtige Ban Gioc Wasserfälle und malerische Halong Bay sind nur ein paar typische Orte, die Sie sehen und vieles mehr wartet auf Sie zu entdecken. Reiten auf leere Landschaft und Bergstraßen ist immer ein anderes Gefühl von den überfüllten Straßen in großen Städten. Tempolimit in Vietnam ist nur 60km / h und wir fahren langsamer zunächst auf Nummer sicher und zweitens in die atemberaubende Aussicht zu nehmen. Entfernt von großen Städten, Menschen Welle und “Hallo” sagen, wie Sie vorbei. Sie werden um Sie herum zu sammeln, wenn Sie sich auf Ihren Besuch zu beenden, berühren Ihre Haut und versuchen zu verstehen, warum Sie so haarig wie auch Blick auf die Bikes sind, weil sie kaum je zu sehen ein, wie dies vor. Jede Reise zu unseren Führern ist eine neue Entdeckung und eine Chance, neue Freunde zu machen und bauen Beziehung, die am Ende ist ein Mehrwert für die gesamte Reise. Die Reiseleiter sind alle mit mechanischen Reparaturen geschult, sie sprechen Vietnamesisch, Englisch und einige Dialekt Sprachen. Mit ihnen werden Sie sehen, das Beste aus Vietnam und haben mehr neue Freunde. Sie sind die eigentliche Asset unseres Unternehmens und wurden führende Motorradtouren für viele Jahre. Die beliebtesten Abenteuer bieten wir geführte Motorrad-Touren (über 500 Touren und mehr als 2.000 Kunden).

Located just 20 minutes by ferry from Koh Samui, Ko Phangan is known as the island famous for the monthly full moon parties. I visited the full moon party around 10 years ago when I was much younger and even then I have to say I really didn't enjoy it and it wasn't what I had expected. It's basically a tonne of very young (18-21) year old gap year kids getting drunk and high off their heads on endless alcohol buckets and mushrooms, while dancing manically to super repetitive hardcore techno music. Not cool.
