Motor bike tour to Nha Trang

My son and girlfriend want to take a motor bike tour from HCMC to Nha Trang. As he is very tall (6' 5") I am wondering if that is likely to be a problem?! They would like to get something organised before they go so they can be picked up at the airport and wonder if anyone can recommend a suitable company or persons to take them. Could you also provide some sort of guide as to how much they should expect to pay for such a trip?

I haven't had any experience of guided motorbike trips in that part of Vietnam so can't make any personal recommendations.

A word of advice though. While there are some very good motorcycle guides around there are also a heck of a lot of cowboys who don't and can't live up to their claims. There are bound to be some of the latter lurking behind the scenes on this forum, so please ignore any offers you receive by personal message (which is against the Trip Advisor rules anyway) or your son's trip could turn out to be a disaster.

Another consideration is that the straight run north between HCMC and Nha Trang is nowhere as scenic as other parts of southern Vietnam so they might consider the more indirect route via the Central Highlands.

For a Vietnamese rider with an acceptable standard of English and good local knowledge the cost starts at about $65 per person per day, including 1-star accommodation.

From Saigon the most scenic and enjoyable route is traveling up the general route of highway 14 but using the smaller roads, and skirting the Cambodian border is quite an adventure as some of the roads have only recently been open to foreigners. Until lately, tourists were forbidden. I might suggest overnighting in Dong Xoai, Gia Nghia, Buon Ma Thuot and finishing in Nha Trang.

No Problem with a tall fellow. One of my partners took a body builder that was the same height.... must have weighed 125 kilos. Creaky is pretty close to the price for a local "easyrider". It can be more or less depending on accommodation, food, and other factors. I know some very good and trustworthy riders that I can recommend if you wish.

Having traveled on a fantastic 4 day motor bike tour of Central Vietnam arranged by Owee I would suggest contacting him to arrange the trip for you.

I traveled to Da Lat last year and my first time trying motorbike was there, it was very cool. But after living in Ho Chi Minh 4 years, i realize that i still can not do it alone, the street is too busy here. About 500 km from HoChiMin to NhaTrang, you need a lot energy for your trip. Last month, my company organized an event there, we went there by car and it took 12 hours. Normally, i prefer going by motorbike to the country site with my Vietnamese friends, it is more interesting than going in the highway with me sometime feel dangerous. Nha Trang has somewhere i do not remember are very nice for motorbike trip with rice field and mountain,... we tried last month. You can visit : www.anopenhandtravel.com . They are professional in touring in Viet Nam.

Have a nice trip.

"let do from Saigon to Da lat"

Posters 6&7.... please be aware that there is a Dam under construction at it is not possible to get from hwy 14 to Dalat unless driving some very poor roads. Doing the trip on HWY 20 is much busier and not as interesting.

Thanks very much for all your comments! As the route from HCMC to Nha Trang doesnt seem particularly interesting they are now wondering if it would be a better journey from Nha Trang to Hoi An? Alternatively as they are short of time they are considering getting the overnight train to Nha Trang and possibly do a motor bike tour just some of the way towards Hoi An and get a train the rest. Any thoughts on that one please?

Nha Trang to Hoi An is usually done in 5 days and is over some beautiful country and visit very interseting villages and hill tribes. A typical route would overnight at Lak Lake, Buon ma Thuot, Kom Tum, Kham Duc and finish in Hoi An. You can make the trip as long or as short as you wish, after all, it is your holiday.
