I want & planning a motorcycling trip to Vietnam, riding from HCM to Hanoi in 25 days. Preferably stopping 2 nights at each major cities to look-see. Any idea when is a good month to motorcycle in Vietnam? Cheers!

I am also interested in doing this. Plan to do it in December.(which I think is the best time considering the different weather in north and south)

Looking forward to read some experiences, if someone could share.

Hi paulgk, try this site vietnamcoracle.com It has a lot of information about Vietnam.

Yes. I have completed the trip. It was really amazing. It would be better if I would spent more time there.

vietnam traffic is full of bikes....

In the cities, it's very crowded with motorcycles, scooters & e-bikes. Somehow I survived.

Can you share more info on how you did it?

 

Did you go HCMC to Hanoi or the reverse? Did you rent or buy a bike? If you bought a bike, did you buy from shop or individual, and which mechanic did you go to for health-check and servicing? Did you need a bike licence? Any other details would be great.

never really rode there.. but I've been on a tour previously..

1) never go more then 30 on city and 50 on expressway.

2) wear helmet if possible

3) horn to warn others, do not brake for no reasons..  slowly move to the side and slowly brake.. the other vehicles will give way to you

4) signal light doesn't really work as people can't see your signal light at city.. out of city - just use them.. :) 

5) remember to apply for international license.. :)

*print additional copies of your passport just in case the rental shop need a copy of your passport or might want to detain your original passport.. this depends on your negotiation skills with them.
