Last month I introduced you to my roadtrip of a lifetime, zig-zagging on motorbikes across Vietnam. We started our journey from Hanoi, and made our way up through Ba Be all the way to Cao Bang in the North of Vietnam. From there we excitedly made our way into Ha Giang province, where we tackled the famous Ha Giang Loop. This loop is world famous for it's breathtaking mountain passes, rolling green rice terraces, jaw-dropping canyons and unique ethnic minorities showcasing their beautiful culture. It is a rider and photographer's paradise.
Our first stop in the loop was Meo Vac, a small charming district known for its unique culture and markets, as well as the magnificent Mai Pi Leng Pass cut into the side of a cliff with views that are truly something to behold.
We were technically doing the loop the "wrong way round" as typically it is started from Ha Giang itself. However, we rebelled and adapted it to suit our needs, and found that the route worked wonderfully both ways. The road between Cao Bang and Meo Vac was long, and we had to stop over for one night. This didn't bother us though, as the roads between the two provinces are phenomenal. The beauty surrounding you while you drive is unreal, and to me it was the perfect way to begin our journey into the loop.
