Saigon Motorcycles - Cat Tien (175km) Itinerary (Saturday, September 5th) 8.30am meet Saigon Motorcycles 9am depart 12pm lunch 4.30pm arrive at accommodation 6pm barbecue dinner Ride Notes From Saigon Motorcycles just a 12km ride to the Cat Lai Ferry to get us warmed up. From the ferry this is by far the best way I've been to avoid the traffic getting out North of the city. The police are rather active in this area though and the least friendly I've encountered anywhere in the country. I've mapped around their favourite haunt but just shy of the Expressway underpass they often have a radar and set up to welcome us so we're careful to abide the 50kph bike limit in that area. Once on the North side of the underpass the roads open up and we get a little more liberal with the throttle. Thats my indicator that the funs about to get real.
Three unavoidable short stretches on the main road but some great riding off it. The newly laid hotmix either side of a dam wall we'll ride over as good as it gets.
Quoc, his wife Yen and young family which includes a pack of friendly Phu Quoc dogs are our hosts for the night.
BYO wine or spirits but plenty of cold beer for purchase. We will be providing a barbecue dinner and breakfast in the package.
We generally get an reasonably early night (well thats the plan anyway) and set an alarm for the dawn. The sun rises in front of your cabin while the roosters try and out do each other up and down the river.
If your lucky the Gibbons can be heard singing along also. A lovely experience not to be missed.
DAY 2, Cat Tien - Saigon Motorcyles (160km)
Itinerary (Sunday, September 20th) 5.30am enjoy the dawn (optional) 8am breakfast 9am depart Cat Tien 12pm lunch on Tri An Lake 4.30pm arrive at Saigon Motorcycles
Ride Notes For the return run this is the next best wet season route keeping off the main arterials as much as possible.
We loosely follow the Tri An Lake roads with a great lunch spot overlooking the water.
After lunch follow the Dong Nai River to a nice rest stop with some services before the run back to the rat race.
Trevor 0906849000 to reserve your spot. I have booked the entire eco lodge but only nine cabins available so I have to take a 500k non refundable deposit with your booking so as not let down the accommodation with a last minute cancelation. Thanks for your understanding on that. #saigonmotorcycles #motorcyclingtoursvietnam #fishingtrip #Vungtau #motorcyclingvietnam #motorbiketoursvietnam DAY 1, Map Link Below From Phà Cát Lái Nhơn Trạch to Spirit Garden Guesthouse via ĐT769. 3 hr 50 min (99 mi) 3 hr 50 min in current traffic For the best route in current traffic visit https://maps.app.goo.gl/dB3XEMBGYKNbyhqu5 DAY 2, Map Link Below From Spirit Garden Guesthouse to Saigon Motorcycles, 36 Đường Quốc Hương, Thảo Điền, Quận 2, Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh 70000 via Phú Lập - Nam Cát Tiên and Tà Lài. 4 hr 21 min (100 mi) 4 hr 21 min in current traffic For the best route in current traffic visit https://maps.app.goo.gl/PS4YRBPTADTdC4JD6
