April 23rd
Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City

GOOD MORNING VIETNAM !!   For those up early, it’s a great time to check out the local markets and  streets of HCMC. 9am: We jump aboard our VIP mini bus and head to The Tunnels  of Cu Chi! An immense network of connecting underground tunnels used throughout  the American war, the 121km complex of tunnels at Cu Chi have been well  preserved by the government of Vietnam. Here, you are welcome to take a look  underground of the former base of operations for the Viet Cong. Above ground  there is also a lot of historic national history to take in, and a shooting  range where you can (for a fee) fire a number of assault rifles such as the M16  rifle, AK-47 and M60. Time for a good local lunch, then our return trip to HCMC  (calling in at the War Museum along the way). In the evening, you will then be  free to check out the hustle and bustle of HCMC at night, which features a wide  array of great restaurants and bars.

 
 April 24th
Day 2: Ho Chi Minh City - Vung Tau
8am: Check-out from our hotel and transfer to the  docks located on the mighty Mekong River. All aboard heading south to Vung Tau  on a 1.5hr  boat journey. Vung Tau, once  famed and remembered as one of the most popular in-country rest and  recuperation (R&R) destinations throughout the American War, holds  beautiful and peaceful beaches that offered a relaxing respite from the  brutality of war just miles away. Vung Tau was used by the Americans,  Australians, New Zealand, South Vietnamese and their allies as an R&R  destination, but even the Viet Cong would go to the city for some rest and  relaxation of their own! After our hotel check-in, we enjoy lunch and head  across to visit the former Australian base camp of Nui Dat.  At its peak, the base at Nui Dat was home to  some 5,000 Australian personnel. Returning to Vung Tau, it’ll be time for our  own R&R, surrounded by the local cafes, bars and restaurants that line the  beach front. Enjoy an evening sip at a local beach front bar!

April 25th
Day 3: ANZAC Long Tan - Ho Chi Minh City - Nha Trang
4am: We will head for Ba Ria to join the dawn  service at the Long Tan. Service will commence at approximately 5.15am, when we  will take in a very moving memorial at the Long Tan Cross. Following the  service, we will return to our hotel for breakfast, check-out, then head off  with a return boat Journey to HCMC. Lunch will be followed by a 40 minute  flight up to beautiful Nha Trang. Vietnam's most famous seaside resort town is  famed for its stunning coastline and great year-round weather with an abundance  of fine dining, cafes and bars. Flights and transfers will have us arriving at  our hotel around 5pm. Your evening will be free, or you can join us at our  preferred super-tasty restaurant! Great food and super cold beers..!

 
April 26th
Day 4: Great ocean road of Nha Trang - Nha Trang (80km)
Let’s Ride..! For those who are up early, feel  free to enjoy a dip in the pool or stroll down the beach. 9am: We head over to  the VMT HQ  for our rider briefing. We  are located on a quiet road, perfect for a quick test ride..! A great relaxed  start to what's guaranteed to be an epic adventure. Riding along the winding  coastline, you can enjoy some outstanding views of the South China Sea. We soon  stop in at Bai Dai Long Beach, with a beach that stretches far as the eye can  see, lined with bamboo huts on the golden sandy shores.. Don’t forget to bring  your swimwear! Take a dip or relax while our lunch is freshly made. After  lunch, we will take an awesome afternoon ride, checking out some local villages  and country back roads. Then, in the evening, you can join us and the VMT team  for a

April 27th
Day 5: Nha Trang - Dalat (160km)
Today we ride into the stunning mountains and  countryside of the REAL Vietnam! With a little morning traffic, we are soon out  of Nha Trang and heading towards the Central Highlands. As we make our way up  the mountain pass, heading towards the hill top retreat of Dalat, you can enjoy  some breathtaking views from high up on the mountains. Famed as the ‘Swiss Alps  of Vietnam,’ Dalat holds some very unique European-influenced architecture and  has a cooler climate than the surrounding areas. Dalat was a popular respite  for commanders and war correspondents alike who were fortunate enough to escape  the front lines. Many strategies were devised here, though Dalat was largely  untouched by the fighting. However, it was in fact home to the National  Military Academy. Dalat today is famed as the city of love; partially owing to  its flower growing, it has become a popular holiday retreat for young  Vietnamese couples.  Evenings are cool  and the local night market is a must-see.

April 28th
Day 6: Dalat - Lak Lake (155km)
Ready to Ride? We’ve got another great day ahead!  Back in the saddle, we ride from Dalat to Lak Lake. Featuring winding back roads that carve through coffee fields and rural farms, this is an outstanding  ride. Plenty of stops along the way allow us to try some local coffee and visit  an old (and very interesting!) silk-making factory. We will then pass through  some small villages, where you will see countless farmers tending crops Vietnamese style! Roads in these parts are often shared by farmers and livestock,  children walking to and from school etc. So keep focused!
You‘ll soon get accustomed to the low speed riding  in Vietnam. Not only is at necessary for safety, but it also allows you the time to really take in the sheer beauty of this truly incredible country. We  will then arrive at our overnight guesthouse, offering quality rooms with  aircon & wifi. Better still, we are located across from Lak Lake and the  surrounding rice fields! Not to mention the constant flow of passing  elephants.. Did anyone mention a cold beer too?! Local foods in these regions  are super fresh and tasty... Lak Lake  is  home to several minority tribes and some traditional villages that are well  worth taking the time to look at. 

April 29th
Day 7: Lak Lake   - Buon Ma Thout (125km)
Easy start into today: We saddle up and ride into the Dak  Nong province, which was the scene of many conflicts and heavy bombing by the  US Airforce. Today these regions are farmed coffee plantations. The roads  winding through the regions provide not only great riding, but also a true  insight of this mighty country. Our lunch stop is at the impressive Dray Sap  waterfalls - great for dip while our lunch is prepared! Back out on the road,  our ride will have us arriving at our Boun Ma Thout Hotel around 3pm. Time to  relax, take a dip in the pool and sip a cool drink... 
 
Special ANZAC bonus: During today’s ride, we will take you for a small visit  to a local school, where you will find out what it means to live as a local in  the real Vietnam. Here at VMT, we try to do anything we can to support the  locals, so we will be gifting some supplies whilst we are there. If you’d like  to help by donating any small items, you have a special opportunity here to do  so. We can assure you that they’ll go a long way and will be much  appreciated..!

April 30th
Day 8: Boun Ma Thout - Kontum (230km)
Venturing deep and entering the legendary Ho Chi  Minh Trail, we will show you the famed supply route that carves through the  most remote mountain jungles of Vietnam. Used by the Viet Cong to send troops  and supplies from North to South throughout the raging war, today the Ho Chi  Minh trail is a joy for riders to behold. This incredible road is simply  amazing! Over the coming days you will see Vietnam from a truly unique perspective.  This is true motorcycling adventure!
We arrive mid-afternoon at our local guest house  which offers a great overnight stay.

May 1st
Day 9: Kontum - Kam Duc(180km)
  Enjoy some truly incredible riding as we travel  along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail. History speaks to you here, through  stunning jungle-covered mountains, incredible views, awesome riding, small  remote villages and much more.
  Stopping in at the War Memorial in Dak, where there  are Russian and Chinese-built tanks on display alongside a story of how the  ethnic villages were caught up in the bloody battles. Some of the most extreme  battles of the war took place here.
  As many of our riders state, they just can't believe  the sheer beauty of these areas and the amazing roads which you simply have to  see for yourself! Overnight we will stay at our Hotel in Kam Duc, featuring an  in-house kitchen that cooks a some great meals. Plenty of cool drinks to be  had, as always! 

May 2nd
Day 10: Kam Duc - Aluoi (200km)
We roll out of Kam Duc and ride over the superb Bach  Ma range, heading towards Aluoi. Fine riding indeed along this section of road  that’s not only in great shape, but is also one of the most incredible roads of  Asia. Later in the day, we encounter the site of hill 937 -better known as  Hamburger Hill. Riding these mountain passes, which stretch skyward with twists  and turns, reveals; giant views over wide and wild jungle valleys, deep  ravines, mist-swept mountains and hairpin bends as the road snakes its way  under lush green mountain jungle canopies. Sections of road wisp in and out of  misty cloud, passing a few remote army outpost buildings and forestry  protection huts. We enjoy our picnic lunch at the entrance to one of two  tunnels we ride through. Making it’s way through the endless twists and turns,  the road eventually drops down into rich farming valleys and a landscape dotted  with small rural villages. We will, soon after, arrive at the small town of  Aluoi, where we can rest at our Home-stay with private rooms and bathrooms, featuring  a finely cooked home dinner.  

May 3rd
Day 11: Aluoi - Khe Sanh
l always have the Cold-Chisel song ‘Khe Sanh’  humming through my mind on the road heading towards Khe Sanh... The twisting  roads that follow Da Krong River hold views across outstanding scenery.  Villagers can be seen taking care of the day’s washing in the river, this place  is amazing! I really feel alive, my veins are always filled with ADVENTURE  here! Old traditional handmade village huts line the roadside, making this a  grand day on so many levels. Vietnam touches your heart in so many ways, rich  in history, deep in culture. Feeling at one with my trusty iron horse. Sharing  the experience with the VMT crew and like-minded riders is something that will  stay deep with you as one your most incredible adventures. This isolated and  rarely used section of road passes through majestic scenery close to the Laos  border.
  We arrive in Khe Sanh and pay a visit to the old  combat airbase, along with an interesting stop at a scrap metal yard which  still to this day receives defused bombs. In the centre of town stands a huge  monument carved from stone which celebrates the bravery of the North. A good  spot to pay your respects to the men and women of both armies. Overnight hotel  stay with great food, splitting the bill on a hearty meal that will cost just a  few dollars.
Rest up, because tomorrow we venture onto the  Western Ho Chi Minh Road. This closed section of road is off the hook in sheer  beauty! 
 
May 4th
Day 12: Khe Sanh - Phong Nha (280km)
Today we enter the Western Ho Chi Minh Road. This  incredible road twists and winds its way through spectacular limestone mountains covered with deep forests, river valleys, roadside waterfalls and  crystal clear rivers for swimming. We ride towards Phong Nha through Ke Bang  National Park, which contains the oldest karst mountains in Asia. Formed approximately 400 million years ago, the mountains are riddled with hundreds of  cave systems and the area is also home to the world's biggest cave - Song Doong  Cave - discovered in 2009. Just when you think this ride cannot get any better, today is huge. The empty road resembles a race track as the landscape unfolds  on this road trip of a lifetime.
Soaring through twist-filled limestone mountains  that seem to go on forever, what more could a rider want? VMT crew and support  comes into its own here, as these areas are remote and our handy support van is  filled with everything needed for such journeys. This is the ultimate riders  adventure! We arrive late in the day into the small town of Phong Nha, with our  hotel overlooking the Son River.
 

May 5th
Day 13: Phong Nha
Enjoy the day to  relax! Stroll through the quaint town and get a chance to explore some of the  world's most beautiful caves. Take a boat journey up river and disappear  underground into Phong Nha Cave. This is an outstanding cave and one of the  biggest in Vietnam, filled with stunning stalactites and stalagmites. After a  fantastic lunch back at our hotel, the afternoon offers a ride over to Paradise  cave, the second largest in Vietnam and considered the most beautiful of all. This  fairly challenging walk is well-rewarded for its sheer beauty. This spectacular  cave, first discovered in 2005, has a length of 31km and looks like a landscape  painting! There are a series of white crystal stalactites resembling glass  pillars and many other formations.


May 6th
Day 14: Phong Nha - Hue (225km)
Our journey today has us winding down towards the  Vietnamese Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), established as a dividing line between the  North and South. We then head across and pay a visit to the Vinh Moc Tunnels,  The Underground City.  Built to shelter  people from intense bombing, these complex tunnels included wells, kitchens,  rooms for each family and spaces for healthcare. Around 60 families lived in  the tunnels and as many as 17 children were born inside the tunnels. From here  we will ride for around 2hrs to reach Hue, located on the banks of the Perfume  River. Hue was the national capital until 1945 and is well known for its  historic monuments, which have earned it a place in the UNESCO list of World  Heritage Sites. Check into our hotel, with each room tastefully decorated with  traditional Vietnamese antiques and great views of the surrounding city. 

May 7th
Day 15: Hue - Danang (120km)
  With our final destination of Danang in sight, this  last stretch of riding includes the famed Hai Van Pass, as featured on  "Top Gear". This ribbon pass offers outstanding views of the South  China Sea. Danang is the conclusion of this epic adventure, with an overnight  stay in our hotel in Danang. Enjoy a night out to say your goodbyes to your new  friends and the VMT team and crew! On the next day, there will be a short  flight to Hanoi or HCMC, which is included in your tour package.
