Vietnam by motor bike | Mui Ne, Dalat
After a great trip in Sri Lanka, delivering me lots of adventures, memories and photo’s, I was ready to visit something completely different. I was ready to visit Vietnam. Completely different was also the way of transport for the coming month.
During our stay in Ho Chi Min my friend Maartje and I decided to see the rest of the country in the best way possible in vietnam, by motorbikes. We drove for weeks trying to get from south to north. In Dalat during a simple oil change I got captured by the beaty of the mechanics and their work environment and when they started welding the real magic happend.
Our first Stop on our bikes actually took us somewhere else. After leaving Saigon we went for Mui Ne. Which took us 8 hours of driving, but delivered us some amazing scenery’s.Mui Ne is a beach town which for it self is not al that special. The nature surrounding Mui Ne tough is a different story. We had seen a red and a white dessert, a fishermans village and the most beautiful scene of all, the fairy streams.
The Fairystreams with it’s amazing colour pallet.
At the fishermans village where hundreds of round boats are lined up waiting for a good catch.
Next stop Dalat. Just getting to Dalat on our motorbikes was worth it. Another 8 hour drive through the mountains on sometimes almost impossible terrains delivered us some amazing views,and of course it was a very fun drive as well with all its riverlike twists up and down the hill.
A stunning view from a coffee form close by Dalat. This coffee farm makes weasel coffee. The weasels eat the coffee berry’s where they get fermented in their stomachs. After the whole process of digestions the beans are collected to make an very specific tasting coffee.
In the center of Dalat we visited the marketplace.
The marketplace in Dalat is a vibrant place where you see something interesting happening on every corner.
For now we get on to our bikes again and head back into the mountains, only to wake up the next day on a beautiful beach.
