We go to bed most nights with the intention of getting out bright and early the next morning, but that is not always the case. We found a place nearby that had good reviews for serving lots of eggs for breakfast (the best kind of place). After breakfast we refueled the pikes and headed for the Hai Vân pass. To do this drive you start out on highway QL1A going north, but instead of continuing on this road take the coastal road onto Deo Hai Vân. The winding roads up the mountainside were so fun to drive along. We took pictures along the way, and also at the road summit, but disclaimer, none of these photos do justice to the incredible views. Here are some of them.
If by chance you are reading this post as part of research for your own trip, I will give this advice: Do not ride the Hai Vân Pass on around or after sunset if you are not a fan of high winds. Considering the top readers of this blog are mine and Charlie’s parents (followed closely by our many other parental figures) I will spare the details. (Love you guys!)
