IMO I think that during a travel you've got to stay balanced between monuments and the life of the country: people are a very important part that and I always try to stay as more close as possible to them.

Keep in mind even if you don't have long time: even a 10 days tour in the North will be something amazing.

Salve Mumo et grazie mille

Super trip, I will be free the first two weeks of february, and I was thinking to have a loop in north Vietnam renting a 250XR.

Yes I can confirm that you can get the visam at the airport, but you've got to have the LOI ( Letter of Invitation) I think around 25 or 15 $. You can ask for this to Flamingo Travel. They put your name on a list with other tourists and send this to Foreign Ministery of Vietnam and after to you by mail. You must print it and show to the office at the airport and pay the 25 $.

Ok, my report (the last part) is about a particular french girl, but country doesn't matter: even scottish or peruvian or ...I don't know. The problem was that particular girl

Momi, what an awesome trip, full of simplicity and good vibration... it is also interesting how you make interpretation of whatever people talk in vietnamese only by looking at their gestures, voice tones

one of the best reports i've ever enjoyed, thanks for sharing the pictures, videos and your whole experience

"Reading and speaking" by gestures is a typical italian way of doing...speaking by hands.
Gestures are different around the world. For exemple in USA mime the horn with the hand means face directly a very difficult situation, in Italy means that your wife or girlfriend is having sex with another person

Fantastic!!! I too did solo from Hanoi to HCMC best ride of my life but I dont have your skill as a photographer. And I lost a lot of photos :(
Thank you so much for letting me re-live.the best time of my life. I saw a lot of what you saw but not that narrow street in Hanoi? where you are on a bicycle? can you point to where it is please?

You had a much better choice of bike than me perfect I will go back someday.
I know you must have found free lunch and rice wine while refueling? I love Vietnamese people! and the way of life

Loved the B and D prank on the pimp. Are you sure you didn't go back? haha

Congrats

Terrific ride report. I'm mid fifties and still travel hardcore, looking to Vietnam in two years. I rode Thailand on an XR250 in '85, silly, no helmet. got the worst sunburn on my forehaed. turned into a blister.... just waiting for the Melanoma to arrive. Thanks again for taking the time to share with us.
