We begin our Vespa Adventure as our experienced drivers bring you out of Hoi An and along the coastal road stopping at the north end of the world renown Da Nang Beach to see the locals involved in the fishing trade. Then after a quick break on the suspension bridge overlooking Da Nang City and the fishing port, we head along Da Nang Bay where we stop at a fishermen’s temple. Heading up the famous Hai Van Pass by motorbike, we’ll take in the amazing views over the bays before stopping at the top to see the old war battlements and bunkers and learn about the fascinating history and strategic importance of the pass. We will also fuel up on a local style coffee. Then it’s down the Hai Van Pass for fun hairpin bends and windy hill roads, before taking a brief stop to take in the amazing view of Lang Co Beach and Lagoon from near the level crossing. It’s back on the Vespas and after riding around a lagoon adorned with stilted houses and oyster farms, we’ll have a well-deserved Vietnamese lunch in a delightful local setting (seasonal).
Our fascinating ride continues as we head north on to the quieter coastal road, passing through the magnificent rural countryside. We ride past many ancestral houses and tombs which play an important part in Vietnamese culture, known as the ‘City Of Ghosts’. We’ll then jump off the bikes and head up to a hilltop Buddhist pagoda with stunning views of the huge lagoon. After a break in a local cafe, we visit and learn about the history of a thousand-year-old Cham Temple and the Champa Kingdom. Our final stretch takes us through yet more beautiful rural landscapes and local villages, we visit a local family making fish sauce, pass by many ornate tombs and ancestral houses and check out a local boat building yard before arriving in Hue city. The day and Hai Van Pass tour will conclude in Hue with drop off at the hotel.
