- Don't be misled by the short distance of the Hai Van Pass. You will definitely take more time as you would want to stop for a photograph or two every 5 minutes on it. So plan accordingly.
- If you plan to drive all the way to Hue from Da Nang and enjoy Hai Van Pass on the way, then would suggest you to either stay at Hue or return by car if you want to come back the same day. The two-way bike ride from Da Nang to Hue can be a bit tiring given the distance and humid weather.
- We rented Suzuki GZ150 from Motorvina for a one way rental of 45 USD (The two way rental for the bike was around 33 USD). The bike was pretty comfortable and had two luggage racks. You can contact Motorvina at +84 935922866 for any more information. Other gears and accessories (apart from the helmets) were also available at a nominal rent. We came back by a chauffeured car and paid 45 USD for the same. (Use - motovina2018 for 10% discount while booking with them)
- The bike rental agencies usually insist upon keeping the passport towards security. Check with them and instead carry and give them some other ID proof along with a credit card deposit.
