Go for an adventure in a retro soviet-style sidecar and experience a once-in-a-lifetime escapade with photographic opportunities, unique to Central Vietnam.
The journey begins at either the Old Town of Hoi An or on the doorstep of your accommodation. You’re driven out of town, into the picturesque rice paddies to experience everyday countryside living, stopping for a ride on a water buffalo – a truly unique Vietnamese experience which locals are often spotted doing!
Continuing on our journey we make our way through Tra Que organic vegetable gardens, traditional graveyards, markets and the villages of Hoi An.
We end our trip by driving along the banks of the Thu Bon River and finish at our starting point or at the beach.
* Rates are on a ‘per sidecar’ basis and include:
– Sidecar with driver
– Bottled drinking water
– Ride on a water buffalo
All sidecars are able to carry our driver and a maximum of 2 persons (1 passenger in the sidecar & 1 passenger behind the driver).
One child under 6 might sit in the sidecar together with 1 parent.
Side cars were gifted to Vietnam in the mid 1970s from the former Soviet Union as all terrain vehicles for use by army and security forces. Over time they fell out of use and have been picked up over the years by steadfast enthusiasts. Our vintage side cars have been in use since the mid 1970s and easily have over a million miles on them.
