The first part that the government restricts automatic motorbike in the peninsula is from the intersection of Hoang Sa street to the ancient banyan tree.
One of the most famous destinations in Son Tra Peninsula is Ban Co Peak. If you go to Ban Co Peak to follow the direction of Yet Kieu street, there will be a part of this road that restricts automatic motorbike. It is from DRT Broadcast Station to Ban Co Peak. Manual motorbikes still can go on this route. However, from Ban Co Peak to Bai Bac, it would change into a one-way road. It is because of the narrow road with a dangerous slope.
Another part that not allow automatic motorbike is the road from Yet Kieu street to Om Waterfall (Suoi Om). This road is not in the direction from Yet Kieu to Ban Co Peak. However, it is an interesting destination for those who want to enjoy the peaceful scenery and cool water in the lake which is from the waterfall.
