There is no doubt – it’s with the motorbike. In the last six days, I was exploring the Island of Lombok (The Island next to Bali) and the Gili Islands. And all of that I did with a motorbike. It was not only the cheapest option but definitely also the most flexible option. The negative side is that it is slow, especially to travel from Bali to the Gilis and back takes a lot more time on this way. Therefore it’s also just a fraction of the cost.
At the end there were too many clouds to see the sunrise – However, I still had two fantastic days, saved money and went on a crazy adventure. It was the best decision to visit Mount Bromo without a tour, but I have to admit I would do some things differently. I’ll tell you how I did it but also directly recommend the better way.
This Video is a bit different, I was just amazed at how great the streets in Ha Giang on the loop are that I created a video with the best driving scenes. In the four days we did one mountain pass after the other, hill up hill down – amazing views and one 180 degrees curve after the other. It was so much fun to ride the streets even if they were sometimes in terrible conditions.
The 4-day motorbike trip through the north of Vietnam was such an amazing experience. We had a semi-automatic bike and drove 400 km in 4 days to make a loop and arrive again in Ha Giang. On the third day, we did the most dangerous road in Vietnam. A path only 70 cm wide and on the side, it went down for 400 meters. So basically one wrong move would cost you your life. My body was full of adrenaline, but I’m happy that I did it because it was such an amazing adventure and everything went well.
Is it dangerous? Yes! Is there any comfort? No, not really. Would I do it again? Oh hell, yes!!
The best trip I had so far in my life was definitely the Ha Giang extreme Loop in north Vietnam. It was 4 days full of fun, adventure, nature, food and adrenaline. Friendships were formed, and limits got tested. I didn’t know..
Renting a motorbike and discovering the Island of Cat Ba in Vietnam is definitely a must do. In general, the first choice in Vietnam is a motorcycle to go around the city or in my case on the island. It costs around 50.000 to 100.000 VND (1,75 – 3,50 Euro) to rent a bike for one day and..
