The advantage of this route is that it is easy to move and safe. However, this route is quite long (about 500 km) and it will be difficult to go when it rains.
  • The second route: The driver moves along Highway 20, passing through Bao Loc Pass, Prenn Pass to reach Da Lat. The distance of this route is only about 300 km, so the traffic time is also shorter. However, the downside is that this route is difficult to go and often crowded.

Note: The distance from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Lat is about 307km long and takes about 6-8 hours depending on the route you choose to start your journey.

Route for Nha Trang southern vietnam motorcycle tours

There are 2 ways to go to Nha Trang: the mountain road and the sea route

Mountain road

From the centre of Saigon, you go along Hanoi Highway, then National Highway 1A, turn right at Vo Nguyen Giap Street through Bien Hoa, Trang Bom and so on through Da Lat and finally Nha Trang. With this beautiful landscape on this route, you should go in 2 to 3 days, instead of running a circuit to finish.

You will pass through Tri An Lake with the famous hydroelectric plant and Cat Tien National Park. You can choose to stay here if you want to camp, otherwise you can continue to run to Madagui tourist area to rest. Coming here means that you have reached almost half of the road, then you follow Highway 20 through Bao Loc town and come to Da Lat city. This area has many high passes, including Prenn pass with many dangerous but beautiful bends, so it would be the safest to cross the pass early around 10am – 5pm.

Continue north along DT 723 – Khanh Le pass – DT 652 to reach Nha Trang. This road is quite safe and with a length of only about 130km, you will reach Nha Trang after about 3 hours.
