Ready For A Real Adventure? Tips For Touring Vietnam On The Back Of A Dirt Bike

If you're ready for some real adventures on the back of a dirt bike, it's time to head to Vietnam. There's never been a better time or a better way to see all that Vietnam has to offer. Most people stick the main tourist attractions when they head to Vietnam, but the real beauty can only be seen by touring the out-of-the-way locations that are only accessible via dirt bikes. Here are some tips that will help you make the most of your first dirt bike tour of Vietnam.

Start with a Trusted Tour Guide

If you've never been to Vietnam, you'll need to start with a trusted tour guide. This is even more important if you're going to be touring the country on a dirt bike. Vietnam is filled with paths that will lead you throughout the country and beyond. You'll want a guide for that first tour to make sure that you don't get lost or end up in another country, which is always possible. You might not realize this, but you can travel throughout Indochina on the back of a dirt bike.

Follow the Ho Chi Minh Trail

If you want a real sense of adventure and you want to see as much of Vietnam as possible, you've got to follow the Ho Chi Minh trail. During the height of the Vietnam War, there were about 12,000 miles of trail, known as the Ho Chi Minh trail. This trail spanned all the way from Hanoi to Saigon. Much of the trail is either gone or has been paved over, but you can still find a good portion of the original trail that can be explored with a dirt bike. Riding the Ho Chi Minh trail via dirt bike will take you through lush jungles and along beautiful waterways.

Choose the Right Season

If you've decided to tour Vietnam on a dirt bike, you'll need to make sure that you choose the right season to schedule your adventure. The monsoon season can be quite treacherous, making it nearly impossible to travel anywhere on a dirt bike. In fact, the Vietnamese monsoon season has been known to wipe out roads and bridges and to cause serious mudslides.

Take Care When Going Off the Path

If you're going to take a dirt bike tour of Vietnam, you'll want to take care when going off the designated paths. You might find more than you were bargaining for. Many of the jungles of Vietnam are still dotted with live unexploded ordnances, left behind from the Vietnam War. Not to mention the occasional Indochinese tigers or bears that you might run into from time to time. In fact, if you're going to be heading off the beaten path, it's best to have a guide with you. They'll know how to navigate around the jungles safely.
