2 Days 1 Night
Pack more memories into two days than most people get in two weeks! We wind our way through the photogenic Thu Bon river delta, capturing a glimpse of everyday rural Vietnamese lifestyles and head deep into the heart of Central Vietnam. Our trail takes us through a number of ethnic minority villages where we stay overnight. An unforgettable two-day adventure.
Hoi An to Tay Giang (or Bho Hoong) (120 km)
Delve into the heart of central Vietnam with this 2-day adventure. We set off from Hoi An on what promises to be an unforgettable voyage of rugged roads, rustic villages and stunning highlands. Pack your sense of adventure and leave behind those preconceived notions of touristy villages: this journey is the real deal. With the wind in your hair, we zip through the Hoi An countryside to Marble Mountain where the thrill-lovers among us can opt for an abseiling adventure into Hell’s Cave. We then head west and climb our way into the mountains. As we wind our way up into the hills towards the Lao border home to the Co Tu minority, we take a break to visit one of the few remaining Co Tu woodcarvers and enjoy a home cooked lunch in his stilted house before continuing our journey deep in to the mountains, meandering through isolated villages where the culture and traditions remain untouched by time making this remote and staggeringly beautiful region home to one of the most authentic hill tribes to remain in Vietnam.
We arrive mid afternoon at our stop for the night, home to the Co Tu Ethnic Minority group.
(For this night we have several options: A traditional basic bamboo hut at Droong village, a basic hotel room in Tay Giang or a more luxurious experience at Bho Hoong Bungalows ***.)
(Accommodation: Hotel – Upgrade to Bho Hoong Bungalow on request)

Bho Hoong Village to Hoi An (150 km)
In the morning, wake up to the sounds of the village coming to life. Enjoy breakfast and a hot cup of coffee as you watch the morning activities of the Co Tu, heading to the fields and preparing the days’ meals. We bid farewell to our hosts and jump back on the bikes for our return journey to Hoi An. Today’s drive crosses the historic Ho Chi Minh Trail, through lush forests and past jaw-dropping views of the central Vietnam Mountains. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more beautiful we arrive at a waterfall tucked alongside a towering peak for a picnic lunch.The afternoon sees us descending back down toward the coast, stopping along the way to explore old bases from the American war, crossing the Thu Bon River by local ferry (motorbike tour only. Jeep tour takes alternate route) and following our unique rural laneway and floating bridge road (motorbike tour only) back into Hoi An.
