Bike Ride Day 17 – Phong Nha to Hue

Distance: 260km
Time: 7 hours

An easy ride along good roads and the bike kept on trucking. We did our usual and kept away from Highway 1; going down the coast after Dong Ha along small local roads. We got a bit lost as all the names seem to be different to what we have on the map but thanks again to the locals we found our way. At Dong Ha, we stopped at Tam’s cafe for a quick bite; a nice cafe where the owner helps and trains deaf people (and it had a bonus of having a very cute puppy!)

Despite being the coast road, we didn’t see any coast but did see lots of paddy fields, temples big and small, and ducks. We eventually saw the sea as we were going over the bridge that led to Hue where we’ll stay for 2 nights.
