The Hai Van Pass is perhaps the most legendary stretch of road in Vietnam, and for good reason. The scenery is truly incredible! Don’t take our word for it… The team at Top Gear had this to say:

A deserted ribbon of perfection – one of the best coast roads in the world

To take this breathtaking route on the back of a bike, or an open-top jeep is an experience you will be talking about for years to come.

About the Hai Van Pass

Linking two of Vietnam’s most important historical cities, Hue and Hoi An, the pass crosses over a spur of the Truong Son (Annamite) range that emerges from the West
and just into the South China Sea, forming the Hai Van Peninsula and the adjoining Son Tra Island. The pass, which once formed the boundary between the kingdoms of Dai Viet and
Champa also forms a boundary between the climates of Northern and Southern Vietnam, sheltering the city of Da Nang from the “Chinese Winds” that blow in from the Northwest.

Vietnam Backpackers

South East Asia Backpacker has tried and tested adventures across the region and handpicked a selection of only the BEST companies to work with.

Why we chose Vietnam Backpackers Hostels?

Vietnam Backpacker Hostels are legendary on the Southeast Asian backpacker trail for one reason. They provide so much more than just a bed. The second a backpacker arrives at one of their hostels or signs up for a trip – they become part of a huge family that looks out for one another – meaning that it’s impossible to ever be lonely again!

Their value-for-money trips are designed for backpackers who are wanting to cram in as many activities and meet as many people as possible. Be prepared for non-stop fun when booking a trip with these guys!

We first met the Aussie owners of the hostel chain, Max and Mick, almost 10 years ago when they only had one hostel in Hanoi. They now have several all across the country and their success is a testament to the fact that they understand backpackers and know how to organise some of the best trips in the country! Having been backpackers themselves back in the day, they know what a backpacker wants and how to provide it to them.

With their awesome team, you’ll get to visit exclusive and off-the-beaten-track destinations, hang out with like-minded travellers, enjoy incredible activities and feel safe in the hands of a professional tour operator and Vietnam’s best guides!

  1. John Rayner

    Fabulous way to travel from Hue to Hoi An Excellent service from the tour company and drivers. Tony and Nguyen were excellent tour guides, friendly and they both looked after us.
    The weather was not kind too us, however Tony and Nguyen provided us with waterproofs and strapped our cases on and we were off. It is a must way to transfer from Hue to Hoi An or via Versa. The Hoi van pass is beautiful, you have regular stops for photos, food and drinks. The guides really do look after you and are very friendly. You also visit Marble mountain which is Beautiful. Thank you for making wonderful memories.
