Riding on HCM trails by motorbike between Hue and Hoi An through the forest to explore the spectacular scenery is one of the best things to do in the central VietNam. On this trip, you will also have a chance to explore the daily life of minority ethnic people. The tour will be completed at least two days and the tour guide should be hired because this route is not easy to support in case something unfortunate may happen.
