I Rode Motorbike In Ha Giang For 3 Days And You Should Do The Same

Ha Giang – a stunning city of Vietnam that I had chosen to explore in 3 days on a motorbike. What a reckless choice at first, but at the end of the third day, I had no regret. Check out my 3-day experience in Ha Giang and you will think the same, and probably will do the same in the future.

Why did I choose Ha Giang, Vietnam for my vacation?

Vietnam is a small yet stunning country with tons of natural beauty that can hardly be found in other nations. I thought if I want to look for some unique places to visit, Vietnam would be a perfect choice. And Ha Giang - a northern-most province of Vietnam, had become my final destination.

After some research, I found out that Ha Giang was called ‘The mysterious landscape along the Chinese border’, which is a mythical combination of conical limestone peaks and deep, craterous valleys, probably the most striking in the country. Throughout history, Ha Giang had gained almost legendary status among independent travelers. The stunning beauty of Ha Giang had attracted thousands of visitors, making tourism in the city increased remarkably.

After a long way that took us approximately 6 hours, we arrived at Ha Giang at about 12:30 PM, which is the furthest province in the north of Vietnam, nearby China border. Before begin exploring Ha Giang, we took a delicious lunch to regain our energy. The weather was a little bit sunny and hot that day, which is the common kind of weather in Vietnam, so I suggest you prepare some water beforehand.

After lunch, we began our Vietnam motorbike trip from there heading to Quan Ba town which was a well-known place for people who love traveling, also known as the home of Vietnamese ethnic people group such as Dao people, H'mong people, it is also a place has a spectacular view of the mountains landscapes.
