Day 3

Hoi An – A Luoi

This is a reasonably long, yet fun six-hour day to your Vietnam motorbike tours. Our destination is A Luoi in the mountainous North Central Coast region, located just west of the Laos-bordering A Shau Valley. Experience firsthand why our XR150 motorbikes are arguably the best touring bike for Vietnam. This area was the location of several U.S. military bases and fierce battles, including Tacon Airport and Hamburger Hill.

100km - 4h of riding
