After a long day with a lot of activities, we know a comfortable place to rest overnight is a special concern. A relaxed and enjoyable accommodation is not only to state the quality of the tour but also to get the energy back for the possibly hard days after.
However, the Trekking and Motorbike tours of Zonitrip are almost at remote regions where accommodations are not like other big towns, so we’ll stay mostly at the standard hotels or home-stay. But don’t’ worry, they’re surely safe and the equipment is comfortable enough for you:
Mostly 90% of Zonitrip’s customers are pleased with staying at homestays.
All the families we choose to stay have special permits and are certificated from the local government. Most of the homestays are nice wood and clean houses on stilts, are owned by warm hosts, who are local knowing well area. Below is the equipment you can expect to have at the homestay: private mats, blankets, mosquito nets, fans, clean toilets, hot water.
We would like to say the food on tours is one of the most important reasons to make our clients come back for more.
We serve almost local Vietnamese food on the tour. Generally, Vietnamese food is light but it’s surely not boring and so healthy. We can be sure all food is fresh with a lot of vegetables, especially for vegetarians.
We sometimes choose a basic roadside restaurant for meals or eating at the homestay but the food is always fresh, tasty and plenty to choose.
Such as famous PHO (rice noodle soup), BUN CHA (special noodle with grilled pork), NEM (Spring rolls)…The local people have different methods to cook so we can be sure you can have different food for each meal during the long adventure tours in Vietnam.

Ha Giang 6 days private motorbike tour
I visited Vietnam at least once each years and this was1 of the most memorable trips in Vietnam.
Incredible landscapes and the roads are the car and motorbike enthusiast dream. The ethnic minorities and their cultures. They are some of the most friendliest and charming people I have met.
One of my main reasons for visiting Ha Giang was photography and I have made some of the best photos of Vietnam.
Nghia is so patient and helpful of my needs and endless questions. She created the customized itinerary to cater for my primary objective of this trip – photography, and I have to say she did a fantastic job.
I am so fortunate to have Hai as my guide and motorcycle rider. He knows Ha Giang likes on the back of his palm. The locals such as Homestay, restaurants and even head of the village all know him. He is also a great rider, I felt safe (though I had to ask him to slow down at times) on the back of him riding through some of the most dangerous roads in Vietnam. He us also very patient and accommodated to my needs of frequent impromptu stops for photography, and occasionally patiently waited for hour for me to capture the magnificent landscapes at ideal lighting and moments.
Best place in Vietnam
I went on a 4 day tour to do the Ha Giang loop in Dec 2019. Having only ever ridden a scooter back home, I decided that it would be better to hire an easy rider to take me around – and it was the best decision I could have made. Happy was an excellent guide / travel companion who made sure I had the best experience this wonderful region could offer. At times the road was very sketchy, full of holes and narrow, but I always felt safe sitting on the back, snapping pics and being a carefree tourist. Overall a wonderful trip!!
10 days private photography motorbike Ha Giang loop
I had absolutely wonderful photography and motorbike tour with Zonitrip in October this year! You will be extremely lucky to have a guide like Nghia, her professionalism, flexibility, patience and dedication to my needs were beyond my expectations. This was my second tour with Zonitrip and will definitely my preferred tour operator when I plan for my next trip to Sapa and Hoang Su Phi. Highly recommended!!
Best adventure – Motorbike Ha Giang Tour
Thank you Ms Nghia & Zonitrip organized well for our Motorbike tour to Ha Giang, the best beautiful destination I’ve visited in Vietnam.
The experience of riding through the winding and narrow road and dangerous rock mountain in Ha Giang was one i will never forget. The scenery was too amzing, stunning and giant, beside the local people in Ha giang is so colorful and interesting.
The riding was fun without being too challenging and Nghia – our tour guide was an excellent guide who showed remarkable patience.
It is definitely the most personal way to see such a beautiful country and would recommend to anyone.
“Professional, Personal, Unforgettable”
I, my partner, father and brother signed up a 6d6n motorbike trip with Zonitrip at Ha Giang Motorbike Loop and Sapa without looking up anything about their road conditions. During the first 20 minutes, we already had 3 casualties (but it was all our fault) and Nghia was well prepped with first aid kits and all though she seemed a bit shocked.
We were feeling very low on our first day but we persevered on. From the second day onwards, the road confidence and fun just kept building up. We underwent a myriad of amazing experiences – visiting a school, playing with children, threshing rice, learning about the village culture, sleeping at homestays, drinking with the locals, smoking from bamboo pipes, etc. It was nice talking to the locals and even nicer talking to Nghia and Dung Ha, who were our guides but I’d really prefer to call them friends.
Everything was very well arranged and we enjoyed ourselves a lot. By the end of the trip, we couldn’t bear to go back. The pre-trip service was fantastic. Nghia was very organized and accommodating even though we kept asking her questions. The post-trip service was totally unexpected. Nghia too the effort to compile a trip video for us 😀
Zonitrip is highly recommended. Go with them, you won’t regret it.
