Tour of duty - Nam

I've been to almost all the countries in Mainland South East Asia by bike. The last frontier has always been Vietnam. The problem is to ride with your own bike there you need to apply for a permit much earlier, take a guide along etc. Anyway with all the requirements done we left Malaysia , rode through Thailand ,toured Cambodia and finally rode into Vietnam. It was an amazing trip. I'm posting up some teaser pics(35 pictures ) here and the full link(600 pictures ) is below

Nice! Can you share how were able to get your bike into Vietnam? From what I heard it's pretty much impossible.

Its not too hard actually.Just costly.
You need to send them some documents....pink slip copy..International license etc...and they take 3-4 months to get approval.You also need to plan your iternary and choose your hotels beforehand.

If you plan to ride there i can pass the agent details. oh yes ..cost-USD 1500
Just the permits ...hotels etc extra
