  • We mostly ride up mountain and nothing like below video. After 30 minutes we will be in the empty traffic road, mostly we ride back-roads, countryside and trails, tracks so no worry about Vietnam traffic.
  • Helmet is a compulsory equipment for motorbike riding
  • You should use the high-quality helmet which was certified by traffic safety management bureaus or helmets following international standards. If you use the cheap helmet, it could be dangerous in case of injuries and accidents.

  • Be confident and decisive when riding. Don’t freak out or be nervous.
  • Ride carefully and control the speed in different circumstances.
  • In Vietnam, it is acceptable in using horn. Therefore, using it smartly because it could help you avoid undesirable cases. In some routes, there might be blind corners or crossroads, so it would be useful to utilize horn.
  • Give ways to bigger vehicles such as trucks, cars, buses or cart-transporting vehicles. It can ensure your safety and one thing for sure, they would take up for big parts of road surface.
  • Ride slowly when making a turn. It is important for you to push the light signals and sound so the left-behind vehicles are aware of your turn. However, you are advised to use your hand gesture and body language also because it would be more noticeable (waving hand when you want to turn left or right)
  • Show your respect and friendliness to people on the roads. Avoid conflicts with others because you don’t know who you are facing with.
  • Be friendly and chummy to other vehicle controllers when they greet you.
  • Be polite with the police. Don’t show out your abnormal or strange and suspicious behaviors on the road and the police will get no attention on you.
  • Drinking and riding should not be gone along.
