Safety and Preparation

Above all, safety is the most important factor in a motorbike ride, especially a group ride. It is important that all participants understand the differences in traffic and driving behaviors of the country they are visiting to then take the necessary precautions.

Our guides will always brief customers on what to expect on the road, all the necessary hand signs and a few rules for the safety of the group. Be mindful that traffic in Southeast Asia can be complicated and tends to surprise visitors. Ultimately, every rider is responsible for their own decisions and actions, our guides’ role will be to care for the group to minimize potential road risks and to maximize the group’s pleasure during the ride. We request that all customers pay attention to the guide’s information.

Customers are encouraged to pack as light as possible to make the ride more comfortable. All extra luggage can be shipped from the starting destination to the end one to alleviate the customer.  

Visas

Visas is a complicated topic in Vietnam, most nationalities require a visa to enter Vietnam.

Nationals of the following countries can obtain a free visa on arrival for 45 days: South Korea, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Belarus.

ASEAN nationals do not require a visa to enter Vietnam but may be required to present proof of a return ticket/onwards travel or proof of funds.

All other nationalities must apply for an e-visa on the government’s portal.

Be aware of visa scams online that are quite common. For safety, we may assist you in the visa application process. 

Safety Gear

Customers are encouraged to bring their own gear. Shipping from city to city is easy to arrange, so don’t worry if you have bulky luggage. We will take only the necessary on the road and ship the rest.

We provide some rental gear such as helmets (full-face or open face), gloves, pants and jackets. Boots may be arranged if requested in advance. All rental gear is second-hand gear, some may be old.

Customers are expected to ride courteously and show respect to fellow road users, especially those in our tour group. Mutual care fosters a supportive environment. In the true spirit of motorcycling, selflessness prevails; there is no room for selfish actions on our tours. It is important that each member follows the guide’s directions to ensure the safety of the group. 

Riding in Vietnam

Riding in Vietnam is not as simple as riding in other countries. Depending on the provinces, several cars and large vehicle drivers are inconsiderate of smaller vehicles. It is important that all participants drive carefully while assuming that all other vehicles around may do something illogical and dangerous on the route.

Your guide will warn of the potential behaviors expected from some drivers. In the most difficult cases, should an inconsiderate driver block the way of the group while making overtaking impossible, your guide will put himself on the way and block the driver while allowing the group to overtake. Should these cases arise, please do cooperate with your guide.
