This Best 5 days Roof Roads motorbiking is one of the best rides on two wheels in Northern Vietnam. Due to long riding hours and bumpy roads, riders need to have intermediate or advanced skills. In return, you will have stunning views, friendly and authentic hill tribes, and the super delicious food of Vietnam.
In case you don’t have five days and still want to ride this motorcycle route then we can make it 4 days. However, it also means we have to ride a bit longer, merging day 2 and day 3 as one day.
