We get out of Hanoi as quickly as possible so that we can spend time on the smaller roads enjoying the views and being out of the traffic. We can get off onto some of the smaller ATK roads for detours and wind our way over to the Pu Luong Valley before ending up at our secluded homestay.

This is a long run southwards to where the Ho Chi Minh Trail starts at Km 0 in Tan Ky. We stay on the quieter roads but it is still quite busy with traffic dropping off the further South we get. We can make good time on this road and we start to get into the hills later in the day.

We now get into the quieter regions of Vietnam and begin to skirt the border with Laos. You will see a mixture of people here, due to the proximity of the border. Also, we get into the hill country and the views start to improve as we enter the thick jungle and have to take some very windy roads up and over the mountains.

There is plenty to see and do in Phong Nha. Take your pick from ziplining, caving, mud bathing or hanging in the homestay by the pool. If you want, you can take a ride around the area or even head to the coast for a dip in the ocean. Today is your day and the world is your oyster.

It’s back onto the HCM Trail today to head down to Khe Sanh. We drive on some pretty isolated road through the jungle but, luckily enough, it is pretty hard to take the wrong road. Here you can move at your own pace and we’ll meet up just on the outskirts of town. There should be plenty of time to visit the war memorial and airbase.
