I’m at the airport now. A mere 20 hours of flying and 10 hours of layover away
Cone awareness is total reality in vietnam but if you are in front you have right of way, no matter how you got in front
Nice! Is that a drone shot?
If you're using a drone here, be sure to stay clear of military or national security installations (e.g. power plants). If you stray into those areas, they may shoot the drone down or they may just follow it back to you; it happened to a friend. If no one with you speaks Vietnamese, you could be in a LOT of trouble.
I just moved to within 100 meters of a military base and don't dare fly my drone from home, in part because a LOT of officers live on my street and if one of them sees it airborne, I could be in the soup.
Where are you? If you get near Dalat, give me a shout.
It’s a long range drone called an Airbus A350 on approach to Noibai airport :)
Maybe not 100% right; but certainly not 100% wrong either...
They won’t sell you dog meat unless you pay $20 us per kilo
This one of my favourite roads in vn .i once saw it in flood with massive waterfalls on at least 220 gully’s . 20 turns per kl for 180 kl lol !
mb. good to meet you the other day. this RR is probably the best so far on Vietnam. amazing country and people. oh the food, the pho and fresh eggroll are couple of my favorites. lots of good Vietnamese restaurants in the suburbs of L.A.
see you around.
Read this report from the beginning and have enjoyed it immensely and for I think the 3rd time Thanks for taking the time & effort to put it on here
on the topic of the Vietnam (American) war, I would suggest people let it be forgotten, most of the Vietnamese people have.
I meant no offence, nor was I trying to belittle others experience. I was trying to say that most Vietnamese people have moved on, so we should to.
We should never forget the lessons of the past.
Great ride report
But never forget all the lost lives, for those who forget are doomed to repeat it.
No thanks, guess you weren't there
Okay, let's forget that this ride report is on a motorcycle site and in a subforum aimed at extended adventures on two wheels and disregard a ride through a beautiful country because of a war that happened quite a few years ago.
please note, I've made an edit to my post.
can we close the topic now and return to the awesome RR.
I rode Vietnam from south to the north last year an wrote a RR here. One of my most vivid memories was at a war museum where a young boy asked me to read an American POW letter to him so he could explain what it said to his father. His father was an ex VC. I'll never forget the 1000yd stare in that man's eyes as he listened to his son.
Politics, history, food, etc all are part of a good RR, not just pictures of bikes. I look forward to more insight into how the Vietnamese people think.....from those of you who have never visited there.
Thanks for the RR. I know I'll never get over there, but pretty scenery. Curious how far apart gas stops are and if they're of the plastic jug variety like Baja?
Gas stops are ridiculously close together, though less ridiculous than on-every-corner-like-the-US, and they're real gas stations. Plastic/glass jug stops are available, though usually unneeded unless you're out in the boonies and I carry a couple 1-liter bottles if I go off-road.
Sorry I am late to the party. What a great ride report and pictures one of the best on Adv .Rider thanks for taking this old man along...
