Need help to travel SE Asia

I am planning a several wk trip thru Vietnam Laos Cambodia. I would like to know the specifics on getting me n my bike between these countries. Can I buy or do I rent? Should I buy privately n keep bike in Asian owners name? I have done some research and am finding getting valued info difficult. Any help from knowledgable persons would be greatly appreciated. Again, I understand the travel in within Vietnam, it's getting in an out of Its neighbors I am confused about. Thanks

Hi,

Its impossible to take bikes into other countrys but very easy to rent 125cc bikes in Thailand, Laos and Cambodia etc for just 5 Dollars per day. To get into another country you just take a cheap bus.

This is how I did it: http://schoene-motorradreisen.de/?re...ailand_bangkok

Enjoy your trip :)

Not entirely true, it is possible to take a Thai (registered in your name) bike into Cambodia and Laos, Vietnam is more difficult but can be done also.

Current info and document requirements is usually available on the RideAsia forum.

If you are going to each place for a week or 4 then it would be A LOT less hassle to rent at each place. If you are going to be there for 6 to 12 months...buy.

Hi Nickel,

Bushpilot is right - buy the bike in Thailand, register it in your name and make sure you keep all the papers with you.
If you buy the bike in Vietnam you may struggle riding in other countries and their borders with your Vietnamese plates.
If you buy in Cambodia you will be fine going into Laos and Thailand (if registered in your own name) but again you will struggle at the Vietnamese border.
