Hi guys,

Mr YUSMAL FaizalI just got back from 9 days in the northern provinces of Vietnam. What can I say… if you are looking for adventure, these guys know how to live by the saying “carpe diem”.

In summary, 9 days, 6 provinces, beautiful scenery, hitting the Vietnamese / Chinese border, early morning mists, endless mountains ranges, tribal village homestays (the real thing… not for the squeamish), celebrating Tet Festival (The Vietnamese Version of the Lunar New Year) all done on 2 wheels (pre-WWII Russian Minsk) on varied terrain… it’s a potent mixture for unpredictable adventure.

Definitely not for the faint hearted because of the riding terrain involved and not for the squeamish due to the sanitation in the villages (or lack of) but you get the unadulterated real deal.

For those seeking to live an adventure and then some… call these guys. You wont regret it.
