Trouble free tour of vietnam on rented bikes
Following my previous thread about Vietnam, as I spent 2 weeks there touring the North, I can gladly confirm now that we had absolutely no problems at all with the local cops.
So the talks on forums about crack down on tourists renting bikes, may be a bit exagerated.
Only once did the cops try to stop us, we just ignored them as we could not stop safely there, and were not willing to stop anyway! We were entering Hanoi by the big 20 km motorway that takes you through a big bridge - apparently the bridge is not for bikes, we still managed to take it 3 times back and forth as we missed a turning!.
I will update in the next couple of weeks my website and will put all details for those interested.
