DRIVING A MOTORBIKE
Experienced motorbikers on slower-paced trips preferred. We want your trip to be safe and fun.
Driving a motorbike in Vietnam, and especially in Ha Giang, is very different from driving a motorbike at home. Not only are the traffic rules and the terrain different, but the motorbikes themselves are different than the ones you will find in the West.
For motorbiking in Ha Giang, we recommend semi-automatic motorbikes like the Honda Blade. Automatic bikes have difficulties handling the steep inclines and are hard to repair and replace because they are unpopular in the region. Manual bikes are slightly more difficult to drive and have the added distraction of having to use the clutch to change gears.
The good news is, if you've ridden a bicycle with gears, you can quickly learn to ride a semi-automatic motorbike.
Take a quick course to be a safe driver. Or already know how to drive? Rent one of our motorbikes for 7USD per day.
