Countryside around Dien Bien Phu
Stunning but hard to get the most out of
What we say:
To get up close and intimate with the stunning scenery and local life, it is possible to hire a motorbike and head out of town for a self-guided drive.
Unfortunately, despite the rewards of the scenery and the friendly and inviting villages, without a map (which we couldn't find in town) or any guidance from the hotels or anyone else we asked, it's difficult to get the most out of this trip. Still worth it though if you're happy just to drive around without really knowing where you are or what you're seeing.
