Getting to the race and where to stay
The race location is quite remote and transport and accommodation is not easy to arrange. This is why we have developed our own range of packages that start from $99 and include transport, meals, and accommodation. Everything will be taken care of from Hanoi, to the race and back again.
If you would prefer to arrange your own transport and accommodation, you can check this page.
