I spent the day taking photos and driving around Da Nang and all the way to Lang Co to check some routes for my upcoming motorbike tours.
I started off with a drive to Son Tra and around Monkey Mountain in the morning.
Monkey Mountain is great, it has some great roads, it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere at times and there are many different sights scattered around the mountain. You can spend the whole day (and more) exploring all the different roads and paths here.
After a lunch break, I continued to the Hai Van Pass. The Hai Van pass is the must-do for every visitor to Vietnam and especially for everyone renting or buying a motorbike here.
It's a great road (despite he fuel and pig trucks you'll encounter) with even better views, no matter if you get here on a sunny day, a rainy day, a cloudy or foggy day or even at night.
You'll also find some roads to explore here if you don't stick to the main road to go up and down the mountain only.
There are plenty of photo opportunities and it's worth taking your time and not rush too much.
Lang Co again provides great views over the sea, the lagoon and also over the local life if you explore a little bit.
While I usually take my Honda Wave around everywhere I go, I had a Honda PCX for the day to try it out. It's a bit more photogenic and it's good to have a different bike in my photos so they don't all feel the same.
My tours will start soon and there will be plenty of different routes to take and explore with some fully individual tours coming up, too.
