Our northern Vietnam motorbike touring team will stay in the homestay of Dzao people for the 1st night of the trip.
After the breakfast, our motorcycle tour Northern Vietnam crew continues to ride along Thac Ba Lake on a bumpy road, shadowed by the line of trees on 2 sides and naturally decorated by the massive mountains.
