We spent 3 days travelling from Dalat to Nha Trang, with Hoai (Ben). I rode a motorbike myself and my girlfiend was on the back of Ben's bike, We both had an amazing time, my girlfriend wasn't confident riding a bike herself so this was a great way for her to see the country and for me it was also a perfect chance to improve my riding at the same time as seeing Vietnam! Ben was very attentive always making sure that I was doing ok and felt confident riding the bike. We visited many different places on the trip including, local villages, national parks, war memorials and we saw many examples of local life. Ben, our guide, was interested in farming and consequently we had plenty of stops showing us how local people grew things such as Cashew nuts, Cocoa plants and rubber plants etc. we were also shown many examples of how rice was used in Noodle making, Rice cracker making, rice wine etc. Too much to even tell, we had to write it all down at the end so we didn't forget. Each day we had something new to learn about and he had all the information we needed and was always able to answer our questions.
During the tour we had plenty of opportunities to get to know our guide and especially on the first night after our visit to the rice wine, we bought a bottle (very cheap) and drank with Ben and some other local people. We spent the night exchanging information about our different cultures, learning each others languages and just having a great time. Unfortunately we were all very tired, so it was bed at 11pm, probably a good thing seeing as I had to ride the bike in the morning!
When he sold us the trip he said we would see the real Vietnam and he was right! We had an amazing time we orginally decided to do just the 2 day tour from Dalat to Nah Trang, but even though we were on a very small budget we decided half way through to do the extra day because we were having so much fun! We would recommend this trip to everyone and anyone! You will have the time of your life.
