Other Need-to-Know Information about Vietnam
While many people will immediately think of the Vietnam War, and rightfully so, there is much, much more history to this country. In fact, the Vietnamese people and culture can be traced back as far as several hundred years B.C! A Vietnam motorcycle trip will let you experience this culture first hand, and forge a deep connection with the people. The north traces back to the roots of Vietnamese culture and includes plenty of amazing natural beauty, such as Ha Long Bay. Central Vietnam offers both coast and highlands, the latter of which has numerous indigenous tribes, and even a few elephants. Southern Vietnam is mostly built around Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta.
Vietnam is a long, thin country with thousands of kilometers of coastline, and a variety of geography and natural beauty. There are hundreds of species of animals and thousands of species of plants to witness as you travel Vietnam by motorbike. The geography of the country is equally diverse, and includes massive river deltas, flatland and farmland, mountain ranges with peaks as high as 3,000m, even tropical forests. This varied geography brings varied climates as well, which will definitely influence when you take your motorbike trip Vietnam. The weather brings anything from monsoons to snow, but generally spring (March through May) provides pleasant weather throughout the country.
Be sure to check Vietnam’s visa requirements before traveling for any Vietnam motorbike tours, as they vary from country to country. Several European countries, including the U.K. and France are exempt for short trips of less than 15 days. United States residents require a visa regardless of trip length. However, Vietnam makes it easy with their “e-visa” program that allows citizens of several dozen different countries to apply online and pick up their visa at any international airport in Vietnam! Speaking of which, you can find international airports at Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang.
