"The several-day loop by motorbike through the Ha Giang highlands in northern Viet Nam is not for the timid," the U.S. newspaper said.

It takes around six hours to reach Ha Noi and the Ha Giang loop takes three to five days depending on the weather.

But it is not an easy trip for amateur travelers due to its twisting, narrow roads and dangerous mountain passes that have claimed the lives of many motorbike riders, including foreigners.

New York Times suggested hiring a guide from QT Motorbikes and Tours to explore the diverse cultures of ethnic minorities such as the Hmong and Tay.

Ha Giang is 300 kilometers from Ha Noi and has become an increasingly popular tourist destination given its topography and ethnic diversity.

In 2019, the province welcomed 1.4 million visitors including over 200,000 international arrivals. 

The northern province of Ha Giang, famous for rice terraces and mountain passes, wants a plan to build Tan Quang Airport to be included in the national aviation development scheme.

Canadian travel site The Travel also listed Hai Van Pass and Ha Giang Loop in its list of 10 'most thrilling scenic drives' in Asia./.
