I survived the Road to Hana
Is it really that dangerous?
The Road to Hana is famous for being described as extremely dangerous to travel. People often tell you that the road is unpaved, has old bridges, and runs along cliffs with no railing.
The reason people think this and continue to portray this area as dangerous is because before the 80's, the Road to Hana was unpaved in sections and had very old bridges. Now the entire road is paved and has railings in most areas, along with newer bridges where needed.
Keep in mind that the road is still perilous because of the many winding turns and the occasional tourist that doesn't pay attention to the road. Drive safe and give the right of way to local traffic. We also encourage you to switch off driving to allow everyone the pleasure of viewing as a passenger. You'll enjoy the ride much more this way. If you're still uncomfortable driving, have an experienced guide take you on a van tour. This way, your driver knows every curve and can also share information about each spot.
