Motorbike renting in Ha Noi


Well the visas are organised, so onto step 2.

We will plan a 1 night sleep in Ha Noi, then on the road to Ha Long Bay.
And we to plan 1 motorbike for carry 2 people from Ha Noi to ha Long Bay.
It's not very far, and Google suggests 3-4 hours, but we will take a full day to do it minimum.

I have my own motorbike in UK, which is 750cc Africa Twin, but appreciate, a big bike will not be available, or shall I say, at a reasonable price, in Viet Nam.

I feel I will be happy enough with a 250cc, as we will be carry little clothes, just in a back pack.

I read that Cuongs shop, Flamingo travel, and Voyage Vietnam Mototours rent out bikes.

We will want the bike for about 7 to 10 days, so any thing more than $10 a day, will get expensive ( for us any way)

Can the wise persons of HUBB, please suggest who I should use for bike hire?

I don't wanna be the bad guy telling you, but for 10$ a day you'll very probably not find a 250cc bike. They are still rare.

But you'll easily get two 125ccs for under 10 bugs a day, together they make 250

Hi Timae,

Thanks for the reply.
How much do think I could rent a 250cc for ?
I would want it for about 7 to 10 days.
