How to get to Du Gia?
There is no way to come directly from Hanoi to Du Gia without private vehicle.Du Gia is about 75 kilometers from Ha Giang, If you want to travel to Du Gia from Hanoi there are some options after an overnight bus from Hanoi to Ha Giang 7 hours:
1. About 3.5 hours by the local bus from the bus station in Ha Giang city. How the bus is? Really local experience, basic 29 seasts bus with no A/C, open window. It should be quite tired with many passes and bumpy road and you cannot have the full view of the scene which is limited by the window of the bus.
2. Taxi or rent a car? It is expensive and you can still not enjoy the full view and the real feel of being at the place.
3. Get a bus to Ha Giang city and rent a motorcycle and ride it yourself to Du Gia. It should be good option for locals or experts in motorcycle but not ordinary tourist. Why? The road is dangerous for someone who do not get used to drive motorcycle and it is not allowed by Vietnamese law without an international license.
4. You can also book a tour with an easy rider. It should be the best option, you are free to enjoy the scenery. It is safe and it is very meaningful to support the locals here. There are some good companies organize tour and EPIC Motorbike Tour By CHEERS is trusted by many customers
