Day 1: Hanoi – Song Thao. ~150 km, ~6 h.

Today is the first day of this Roof Roads 7 days Vietnam motorbike tour. Before starting to ride, we will have a short briefing to let you know about the rules. In addition, the guide will show you how to understand him by his body language. We start around 9.30am after the rush hours.

Ride to Song Thao via Hoa Binh, cross the barrage, and then head up north following the dyke road (west side of the Black River).

In fact, Song Thao is a very small village lost in the hills o the west bank of Black river. In particular, this is the place where we grow lacquer trees to collect the precious substance called lacquer.

We are welcome in the house of our friends. You meet Kinh (ethnic Vietnamese). Finally, we propose to stay in the house of the two “uncles”, the direct descendant of the ancestor who discovered the property of this tree and the way to use it, about four hundred years ago (quite recently compared to China who knew about lacquer few thousands years ago).
