This trip is a first – a motorcycle trip down the famous Ho Chi Minh trail from Hanoi to Saigon on primarily Honda or Suzuki 125 cc motorcycles. Along the way, you can share discussions with a guide who was part of the war – Le Van Cuong – and visit places that had meaning for him on the trail. During your ride, you will visit everything from Ho Chi Minh’s birthplace to the Chinese fishing town of Hoi An, to the hill retreat of Dalat. This is true Vietnam – a trip like no other. Part is on a new highway, part on dirt roads, part in towns, part in hill tribe villages (Se Dang, Pa Co, Bahnar, and others). Some of the hotels are excellent, but others are very, very basic – the “best available” – so be prepared.
Part of the trip vividly shows the Vietnam of today, and part is recorded forever in history. As one cycler said, “I have traveled all around the world, but this is the first time I have traveled IN the world.”
