The best Ha Giang Loop Motorbike tour from Hanoi – run by Vietnam Cheers Hostel.
When exploring Ha Giang, it’s highly recommended that you leave the driving to a professional unless you’re an experienced and legally licensed motorbike driver. Driving a motorbike around jaw-dropping mountain passes may sound exciting, but if not done by an experienced driver, those heartstopping twist and turns around steep cliffs can be insanely d a n g e r o u s.
Further, motorbiking the Ha Giang Loop yourself is not only dangerous, but driving yourself can be illegal if you don’t have the proper international motorbike license – and most tourists do not. As the Ha Giang Loop becomes more popular, police stops are becoming commonplace, and it’s not unusual to have to receive a stiff fine for driving without the proper motorbike license.
This is where booking a Ha Giang Loop Tour from Ha Giang Epic Tours comes in to save the day. With Ha Giang Epic Tours, adventure is priority, but safety is first. All Ha Giang Epic Tours come with your very own professional motorbike driver (also called an easy rider) who’s also incredibly knowledgeable about the Ha Giang region, including its rich cultures, traditions, hotspots and hidden treasures abound.
