Journey of a Lifetime: Motorbike Routes from Ho Chi Minh City to Hometown Bliss

If you're planning a motorbike trip from Ho Chi Minh City to your hometown for Tet (Lunar New Year), there are several beautiful routes to consider. Below, I'll provide a rephrased version of the suggested itineraries and highlights in English:




Route 1: Ho Chi Minh City to Central Vietnam

Departing from Ho Chi Minh City, popular routes lead to the central provinces, offering picturesque landscapes along the way.


Common stops include the coastal areas of the South Central Coast, spanning from Binh Thuan to Quang Tri. The shortest journey is approximately 200 km to Binh Thuan, while the longest route extends around 1,079 km to Quang Tri.


Instead of sticking to National Highway 1A, you can opt for the coastal roads, passing through ten coastal provinces, including Binh Thuan, Ninh Thuan, Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh, Quang Ngai, Quang Nam, Da Nang, Hue, and Quang Tri.


Notable sights along this route include the stunning coastal scenery of Phu Yen, the combination of blue sea and majestic mountains in Ninh Thuan, and the Quy Hoa Valley in Binh Dinh.


For those choosing the Nha Trang to Quang Ngai route, consider exploring the Central Highlands, visiting Kon Tum's Dong Duong intersection, and experiencing the beauty of Mui Dien in Phu Yen.


This route's travel time varies based on individual preferences. If focused on continuous riding and minimal stops, the longest journey from Ho Chi Minh City to Quang Tri may take around 24-30 hours. However, for a more relaxed pace, consider overnight stays in scenic locations such as Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa, and Da Nang.


Based on experienced travelers, it's advisable to start the journey early in the morning, take breaks before 5 PM, and avoid nighttime travel to ensure safety. Short breaks of 15-30 minutes at roadside coffee shops are recommended. Accommodations are readily available, ranging from roadside inns to city hotels.


Route 2: Ho Chi Minh City to Central Highlands - Dalat


This route is deemed easy and offers multiple directions. There are five suggested routes from Ho Chi Minh City to Dalat, each providing an opportunity to explore famous landmarks.


1. Ho Chi Minh City - Trị An - Nam Cat Tien - Da Teh - Deo Con O - Bao Lam - Deo Ta Nung - Dalat (Approx. 360 km): A day and a half is recommended for this route, with overnight stays in Nam Cat Tien or Da Teh, and arriving in Dalat the next day.


2. Ho Chi Minh City - Ba Ria - Lagi - Phan Thiet - Bau Trang - Vinh Hy - Cam Ranh - Song Pha - Dalat (Approx. 515 km): Plan for a two-day journey with multiple sightseeing stops.

3. Ho Chi Minh City - Ba Ria - Ho Coc - Lagi - Tanh Linh - Ho Dam - Bao Loc - Ta Nung - Dalat (Approx. 430 km): A two-day trip is recommended for this route, with caution on the narrow and winding Gia Bac Pass.

4. Ho Chi Minh City - Ba Ria - Ho Coc - Lagi - Ke Ga - Phan Thiet - Deo Gia Bac - Di Linh - Ta Nung - Dalat (Approx. 443 km): This route should be covered in two days, with care needed on the Gia Bac Pass due to its narrow and winding nature.


5. Ho Chi Minh City - Ba Ria - Ho Coc - Lagi - Ke Ga - Phan Thiet - Deo Luong Son - Dai Ninh - Duc Trong - Ta Nung - Dalat (Approx. 400 km): This route surpasses 400 km, choosing Deo Luong Son - Dai Ninh instead of Gia Bac.

All these routes traverse scenic landscapes and pass through tourist destinations, ensuring a variety of accommodation options. Travelers are advised to plan ahead, book accommodations in advance, and consider local eateries for time efficiency.


Route 3: Ho Chi Minh City to Buon Ma Thuot, Dak Nong

Covering approximately 320 km from Ho Chi Minh City to Buon Ma Thuot, this route is flat and straightforward, passing through famous tourist spots in Binh Phuoc, Dak Nong, and Dak Lak provinces.


Departing from Saigon, take National Highway 13 towards Binh Duong and reach the large intersection known as So Sao. Continue on National Highway 13 to Loc Ninh, Hoa Lu Border Gate in Binh Phuoc, and then follow Provincial Road 741 through Tinh Bien, Phu Giao, with a stop in Dong Xoai.


From here, proceed on National Highway 14 towards Dak Lak, passing through Bui Dang and Dak R'Lap, arriving in Gia Nghia (Dak Nong) around noon.



In Dak R'Lap, there's an option to take the border road, National Highway 14C, leading to Dak Mil (Dak Nong), skipping Gia Nghia. While this road may not be considered scenic, it offers fewer vehicles and a chance to explore beautiful landscapes. From Dak Mil, Buon Ma Thuot is approximately 60 km away, with attractions like Dray Sap and Dray Nur waterfalls located on the route.


This route is often covered within a day. For those interested in sightseeing, a stop in Gia Nghia is recommended. The area offers several homestays and farmstays, including Yumin Farm House, Hoa Dat Garden, and Ngô Gia Trang.

Within a 50 km radius of Gia Nghia, Dak Nong boasts attractions such as Ta Dung National Park, the Nâm Kar Volcanic Range, and Lieng Nung Waterfall.


Route 4: Ho Chi Minh City to Mekong Delta (Southern Vietnam)

For a journey to the Mekong Delta, there are several routes with varying distances and directions. Here are four recommended routes for motorbike enthusiasts:


1. Ho Chi Minh City - National Highway 1 - Phu My Intersection (Tien Giang) - Provincial Road 866 - Provincial Road 865 - Provincial Road 867 - National Highway 1.


2. Ho Chi Minh City - National Highway 1 - Provincial Road 868 - Tu Kiet Road - National Highway 1. Note: This route may experience congestion at Cai Lay Intersection (Tien Giang).

The Mekong Delta provinces are within a range of less than 200 km from Ho Chi Minh City, making day trips feasible. The closest province is Long An, approximately 55 km away, while the farthest is Cà Mau at 179 km. The roads are generally easy to navigate, but travelers should be cautious of speed bumps along certain sections.


During the spring season, consider visiting flower villages such as Tan Quy Dong in Sa Dec (Dong Thap), Phuoc Dinh Mai Village in Vinh Long, Cai Mon Ornamental Village in Ben Tre, Vị Thanh Flower Village in Hau Giang, and My Phong Flower Village in Tien Giang.


These routes provide a diverse range of scenery, cultural experiences, and opportunities to explore the rich landscapes of Vietnam. Enjoy your motorbike adventure and have a wonderful Tet holiday!
