Hue to phong nah by motorbike?

Hi everyone after finding the forums and reading up we love the idea of one way motorbike from hoi an to hue which we wil do.

However I've been searching but can't seem to find any info or advice on hue to phong nah to go stay there and visit the caves.

Can anyone please tell me if it's possible to do in a day and what the approx riding time would be?

Or is it better to go by train?

We are a couple in our 40's my partner rides dirt bikes back home so is confident on bike (off road anyway!) and we would be looking to do the trip in the next week.

Thanks heaps for any help / advice

It's only a couple of hundred km, so quite doable in a day, assuming you have a bike that you can pick up in Huế and drop off in Phong Nha.

It's mostly highway though, so think scary, not scenic.

Much better to get a motorbike for sight seeing round Phong Nha rather than just getting there.

You require a motorcycle license from your home country and an International Drivers Permit showing that motorcycle entitlement to ride legally on the roads. Insurance covering that activity is pretty essential too.

The Ho Chi Minh Hwy West is the scenic drive from Hue to Phong Nha via Khe Sanh. It takes most of the day to do but well worth it. Not worth the risk of driving Hwy #1 to Phong Nha as it's very dangerous. Ho Chi Minh East is not as risky but also not as scenic. It's roughly 8-10 km West of Hwy #1.
