The eight-hour motorbike tour from former imperial capital Hue to the ancient town of Hoi An costs $74.77 per person and allows visitors to explore famous tourist attractions in central Vietnam like Lang Co Beach, Hai Van Pass, Da Nang, the Marble Mountains and Hoi An itself.

Organized by HCMC-based tour operator Saigon Back Alley Tours, the food tour by motorbike would take visitors around four hours to delve into the street food scene in Vietnam's southern metropolis. The tour costs from $40 per adult, including beverages, food tasting, dinner, snacks and hotel pickup and drop-off.
