Guide to the Hai Van pass
Hai Van Pass is always the route that any traveller wants to conquer because of its grandeur and beauty. One side is the immensity of the sea, one side is the grandeur of the day. Hai Van pass is like a silk band winding around Truong Son mountain range. This road is in the "Top 10 most beautiful coastal roads in the world". Everyone who loves travelling once wants to come here to enjoy the coolness of the sea and to hear the murmur of the mountains.
The best time to visit Hai Van Pass
The best time to ride is at the end of the dry season in September. At this time the weather is not too hot, the temperature has decreased compared to the middle of the dry season and it has not rained much because the rainy season has not yet come. Conquering the Hai Van Pass is always a great trip any time of the year, but care must be taken when it is wet. Due to the nature of the pass, sometimes the top can be hidden in the mist, blocking the view. The fog gives it a wonderful atmosphere and with the lush forest, it can feel like you are riding a horse into Jurassic Park.
When traveling to Hai Van Pass, make sure you have the necessary things with you: Sunscreen, long sleeves and pants are useful to minimize the use of motorbikes. During the cooler months, a thin and waterproof jacket is also recommended as it can be quite cold on the top of the pass. You should also prepare a few bottles of water because walking on the road will be difficult for you to find where to sell it.
Rent a motorbike
One of the most popular ways to see Hai Van pass is to rent a motorbike and visit it, even going all the way to Hue. You can stop where you want and detour to wherever you like along the way without depending on anyone. We recommend that you have the experience of riding a motorbike before trying to pass a mountain pass because there are many bends on the road, the road can be slippery. If you have the skills and experience, you will be able to react quickly and promptly in unexpected situations.
