Ho Chi Minh Trails Motorcycle Tours
Ho Chi Minh Trail Motorbike Tours offer the complete Vietnam motorcycle experience of riding from North to South or vice versa. The Ho Chi Minh trail was a logistical system that ran from the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) to the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) through the neighboring kingdoms of Laos and Cambodia.
The system provided support, in the form of manpower and material, to the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam. It was named by the Americans for North Vietnamese president Ho Chi Minh. Although the trail was mostly in Laos, the communists called it the Truong Son Strategic Supply Route, after the Vietnamese name for the Annamite Range mountains in central Vietnam.
According to the United States National Security Agency’s official history of the war, the Trail system was “one of the great achievements of military engineering of the 20th century. Northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Bac Ha, Cao Bang, Cat Ba, Cuc Phuong National Park, Dien Bien Phu, Dong Dang, Dong Hoi, Ha Long Bay, Haiphong, Lao Cai, Ninh Binh, Sapa, Bac Giang) harbours some of the most magnificent views of Vietnam as well as the capital city and the chance to visit indigenous hill tribes.
Central Coast (Cham Islands, Da Nang, DMZ, Dong Ha, Hoi An, Lang Co, Hue, My Son, Na Meo, Nha Trang, Qui Nhon, Thanh Hoa, Vinh) with the ancient city of Hue to be the home of the still recent Vietnamese kings and Hoi An which features one of the nicest old seacoast towns in Vietnam. Central Highlands (Buon Ma Thuot, Dalat, Kontum, Ngoc Hoi, Pleiku) offer the lush forest-covered hills featuring indigenous tribes and the occasional elephant.

However, it would be much easier for motorcyclists if they follow the rules and traffic laws of Vietnam & other country rigidly. To ensure that you have a safe motorcycle trip and lifetime experience in Vietnam, there are some regulations that you need to bear in mind:
- Helmet is a compulsory equipment for motorbike riding
- You should use the high-quality helmet which was certified by traffic safety management bureaus or helmets following international standards. If you use the cheap helmet, it could be dangerous in case of injuries and accidents.

- Give ways to bigger vehicles such as trucks, cars, buses or cart-transporting vehicles. It can ensure your safety and one thing for sure, they would take up for big parts of road surface.
- Ride slowly when making a turn. It is important for you to push the light signals and sound so the left-behind vehicles are aware of your turn. However, you are advised to use your hand gesture and body language also because it would be more noticeable (waving hand when you want to turn left or right)
- Show your respect and friendliness to people on the roads. Avoid conflicts with others because you don’t know who you are facing with.
- Be friendly and chummy to other vehicle controllers when they greet you.
- Be polite with the police. Don’t show out your abnormal or strange and suspicious behaviors on the road and the police will get no attention on you.
