Vietnam is a country best explored by motorbike. The roads are winding and the scenery is beautiful, so it's the perfect way to see everything that this amazing country has to offer. There are many places where you can rent a motorbike, and it's the most affordable way to get around. Just be careful! Driving in Vietnam can be dangerous, so make sure you know what you're doing before hitting the road. credit: Matthew Nolan…

My friends and I rented motorbikes for a trip to Vietnam, and we had no idea what we were doing. When we got pulled over by the police, we were shocked—we didn't know you needed a license to drive a motorbike in Vietnam. They took us to the police station and held us until our friend (who speaks Vietnamese) could come down with the money.

We learned our lesson, but it definitely would've been helpful to have known this before our trip, haha.

I have never considered renting one before but this is pretty helpful if I do. 

I think it can be useful and even fun depending on the area I would be staying in!

Sure, I'd be glad to assist you with that! Renting a motorbike in Vietnam is a common way to explore the country, but there are a few things to keep inmind. Firstly, make sure you have a valid international driver's license. Secondly, be prepared for the bustling traffic in Vietnam, so always drive attentively. Lastly, take pictures of the bike before you rent it to document any existing damages. Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

I've been to Vietnam three times, and I love it! I do have one word of caution: the drivers there are crazy! Seriously, they'll drive right up on each other's bumpers on the highway. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled when you're out there—they don't seem to follow many rules of the road, so you have to be on your toes!

Great information. I had considered doing this for my next trip just because of the area I wanted to visit. I would need to be able to get around easier and I think this is probably the easiest and cheapest way.

And let's not forget the absolute beauty that lies along Vietnam's coastal roads and mountainous regions, like the Hai Van Pass and the Ho Chi Minh Trail, where you can experience unforgettable moments and witness breathtaking views that will make your time in Vietnam truly remarkable. Just remember to stay cautious and prepared on the road!
