Day 1: From Hue to Aluoi to Prao on Ho chi Minh trail
Leaving Hue we take highway 49 to the small town of Aluoi and then over the beautiful Ma Oi pass, where we stop for swim at the Mau waterfall and see the handicraft needlework of the Van Kieu ethnic minority.
After lunch in Aluoi we spend the whole afternoon on the legendary Ho Chi Minh Trail to the mountain town of Prao where we stop for dinner and the night.
Day 2: From Prao to Hoi An
On the second day you have two options for getting to Hoi An.
Option 1: After breakfast in Prao we continue 52 km along the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the village of Thanh My where we will cross the river on a small local boat and drive along a country road to My Son, the ancient Champa Kingdom of the Cham people and a UNESCO World Heritage site. We stop at My Son where you are free to explore the ruins at your own pace. Then we continue on to Hoi An where we finish the tour.
Option 2: After breakfast in Prao we drive down the *** mountain pass to the city of Da Nang. On the way we visit the many Ethnic minority villages and tea fields dotted along the road. We continue down the pass to historic China Beach, the perfect place for a swim with its pristine water and unspoiled white sand beach and then on to the Marble Mountains where you can climb to the summit for stunning views.
