3rd day of riding.
To: Phong Nha
Distance: 225 km
The view and the ride were lovely today! My scooter was able to drive up steep roads at 50 km/hr. I took the Ho Chi Minh Road and not the A1 highway. 5.5 hours of riding.
2nd day of riding today.
From: Ninh Binh
Distance: 210 kms
Today, I was riding with Kevin and he told me the highway 1 is easy to ride on unlike what other people suggest. Usually people ask to take the Ho Chi Minh Road. Also, because of the new year the roads were to be empty so this sounded like a good option.
Took roughly 5.5 hours for the journey. The highlight was that roads were deserted since everyone spends new year at home.
Phoebe averages to about 45 kms per litre of petrol. Not bad at all!
