The best thing in Vietnam !!!

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us.

Ha ha ha... Bingo man... please explain your pissed off attitude about tired old cliches! Sounds a bit like you!
Please explain how my Chinese neighbor who has a clothing business managed to get his hands on AID money to pay for his Lexus?
Silence, exile, and cunning.

This guide is worth a read even if you are not planning on going to Vietnam and you have never ridden a motorbike. Great photos too.

Ho Chi Minh Road: Motorbike Guide

Last updated May 2016 | Words and photos by Vietnam Coracle
INTRODUCTION | GUIDE | MAP| RELATED POSTS

The Ho Chi Minh Road is fast becoming famous as one of the most scenic routes for a motorbike road trip in Asia. Although it will eventually stretch from the southern-most tip of the country to its northern border with China, to date (2016) the Ho Chi Minh Road has been fully paved from Saigon in the south to Hanoi in the north: nearly 2,000km of unbroken road, cutting through some of the most spectacular landscape in Vietnam. The best scenery can be found along the central section, where a landscape of endless limestone mountains, covered in a thick fleece of tropical rainforest and dissected by clear blue rivers, stretches to the horizon: if you only ride one part of the Ho Chi Minh Road, make sure it’s this one. Below is my full guide to the Ho Chi Minh Road, including route information, places to stay and eat, and things to see and do along the way.

My family owns a cafe restaurant on that road, and it's been completely screwed over and has since gone out of business since the began tearing up that road.

Most of my family that lives out that way now has moved into the city because driving would take 2 or 3 hours a day.

I had the bright idea once of going from Snooky to HCMC.....it doesn't look far on the map,well ,it looks nearer than going SHV-PP-HCMC ,which is the route most touted by the bus companies in Snooky....big mistake....5 changes of buses interminable delays stuck in god knows where....a ferry crossing over the mekong delta,3 hours on a mini bus with a belligerent old yank who insulted the rest of the passengers,ie
some old Vietnamese women who he deemed were talking too much........a journey I'll never forget....over 12 hours ,leaving Snooky 8am ,arriving HCMC approaching 9pm....

saying that,I love Vietnam,but I much prefer Hanoi to HCMC .....tho' I found the food much better in HCMC.
