Vietnam motorbike diaries – Day 1 (Hanoi to Ninh Binh)

First intercity day with Phoebe, after 9 days in Vietnam.

From: Hanoi

To: Ninh Binh

Distance: 130 kms

It was a fun ride. Phoebe runs at 60 kmph comfortably and could go up to 80. I liked riding her between 50-60. Can sound like a helicopter though. Haha. These Vietnamese bikes are barely reliable, let’s see how it goes in the future.

There were some good views on the way:


I came across this temple as well:


My hostel in Ninh Binh has spectacular views:


City looks cool:


And I had the best vegetarian food I’ve had in Vietnam. It was tofu in tomato sauce and tasted really good. Sometimes food in Vietnam can be colourful but lacks in taste, but not in this case. And this was just 25k dong or 1$ for so much food:


Still a long way South and I already feel time is less 😉
