This is a one-way tour and can be done from Hue to Hoi An or the opposite, Hoi An to Hue. Unlike most other Hue to Hoi An motorbike tours, we avoid the big Highway 1 and instead stay on back roads, taking our time to explore the countryside and several small villages.

We will pick you up in the morning via motorbike and your adventure begins! If your luggage is small, we will take it along on the bikes with us. Otherwise, we can arrange to have your luggage safely transported to your destination on the same day.

When departing from Hoi An, we will first ride along a quiet road across the countryside. Here you can enjoy the incredible views of vast rice fields and feel the wind brushing past your cheek – air conditioning at its best.

We will visit and hike the Marble Mountains. The Marble Mountains consist of five craggy outcrops, one of which has numerous beautiful pagodas, temples, caves, and viewpoints. From the top of the mountain you will witness a spectacular sight of the China Beach Coastal Road.

After this, we will visit the village that has been built at the base of the mountains and specializes in marble sculpture.

We will then ride along to My Khe beach, voted Viet Nam’s most beautiful beach. Here we will stop a while and take some photos. After this, we will go on one of Viet Nam’s most famous adventures: a ride through the Hai Van Pass (“sea cloud” pass) which crosses over the Truong Son Mountain range. The road climbs up to a height of 496 m, with spectacular views of luscious green trees and mountains everywhere you turn.

We will travel downhill to reach a Lang Co Bay restaurant, famous for seafood, where we will eat lunch ‘”Viet Nam style.” Once our stomachs are satisfied, we will ride to Elephant Waterfall, a natural spring where we can relax and swim in the crystal clear water.

Next, we follow a small road to our final stop, a big blue lagoon. Here we will stop and take some photos before we ride into the sunset and finish at our final destination of Hue.


DEPARTURE TIME 8:30 am at your Hue or Hoi An hotel
Meals (seafood lunch), drinking water, gas, motorbike, English-speaking local tour guide, entry fees, rain ponchos (if needed)

My wife and I knew we needed to get to Hue to Hoi An. Do we take a bus/sleeper bus? Taxi? Then we saw/read about motorbike tours and thought, that might be interesting. Being budget travelers this was kind of a splurge for us. We knew that public transportation would be cheaper, but we thought, this could be awesome. So we contacted our friend who had done a 3 day tour with a company he liked and connected us to Hoi An Motorbike Tour Adventures. We emailed them and Mr. Phu got back to us asap. We told him where we needed to go (because what we wanted/needed wasn’t online) and we were able to negotiate with him a day tour from Hue to Hoi An for $62 a person. Again, this was a splurge for us but we soon found out it was worth it. Notes: the price for the tour included all food, drinks, and tickets for any stops.

Phu and Bat met us at our Airbnb in Hue promptly at 8:30am. From there they packed up the bikes and we were off. The first stop was to Phu’s village where he grew up. It was neat to learn from him about how they grow mushrooms and nice to meet his mother and father. After that we visited his brother in-law, a local craftsman who works with marble. From there we made several other stops to Bat’s village where he grew up, Elephant Waterfall (a local river/swimming area), lunch on a lake, the top of Hai Van pass, coffee and tea at a view bar, and then walking around (with a lot of stairs) around the Marble Mountain area.

What’s great about Phu and Bat is the pace of the whole day. Yes it was a full day from 8:30am – 5:30pm but we stopped to rest many times and got lots of opportunities for pictures, drink water/coffee/tea, and bathroom breaks when needed. These are great hosts that are passionate about helping you as guests have a great time and to help you learn a little bit about central Vietnam along the way.

We can’t say enough great things about Phu, Bat, and the entire experience and are looking forward to doing another one of these tours next time we visit, hopefully a longer one. If you are even remotely interested, email them and tell them what you’d like and they’ll help put something together for you,
