    Hi all,

    As I work my way up the length of Vietnam, I'd like to try and see the tunnels/beaches at Vinh Moc (after reading the DMZ feature articles, the many of the other sights don't seem to be worth doing on my own).

    Since Dong Ha seems to be an uncomfortable place to stay (and travel from), and since I'll only be hitting the north side of the DMZ, could I visit the tunnels
    as a daytrip from Dong Hoi? I'd hope to do it on my own by motorbike, if rental is available there; it appears to be only 50km each way.

    Anyone have any experience renting motorbikes/visiting the tunnels from Dong Hoi?

    Many thanks!

    No reason why you couldn't do it from Dong Hoi -- peeps do it from Dong Ha only because it is closer. Can't help on the motorbike hire side of things but I can't imagine it would be too difficult to find a rider willing to take you there.

    Also, if you're in Dong Hoi, don't forget Phong Nha cave -- a new trip report just came in that covers it. You can read it here

    Great blog btw -- lots of terrific pics!

    Thanks for the props on the pics! Means a lot coming from the guru of this site (one that originally inspired me to travel in SE Asia).

    Hopefully there are bikes for me to rent in Dong Hoi ...I don't really fancy riding on a xe om for more than a few clicks, as my legs are too long for the back of most Honda Waves.

    Will fill you in on the status of bike rental in Dong Hoi after I give it a go...
