This page provides some details about Vietnam’s customs, traditions & rites. Knowing these things will let you feel familiar once you are here.
Knowing Vietnam’s Customs
Anyone going to Vietnam would be wise to bone up on some of the unique customs and superstitions of the country. Otherwise, they cause confusion, misunderstandings, hard feelings, or even loss of friendship. The old saying, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” cannot be applied to Vietnam. However, it is still very important that you respect certain customs and superstitions of the people.
Many Vietnamese having extensive contact with foreigners have begun to understand Western ways. Some have even adopted some of them for their own use. However, there are thousands of ordinary folks whose customs have not changed in generations. They live mainly in the countryside and have little contact with foreigners.

Offroad Vietnam has been offering professional guided, semi-guided, and self-guided motorbike tours and motorcycle adventures all over Vietnam since December 2006. All guided and semi-guided trips start from Hanoi but could end anywhere in Vietnam. We ride to places that are not easily accessible by cars or other means of transport. This means we see a REAL VIETNAM and experience a true Vietnamese life at homestays. To get on well with the host families and respect their customs, we have the following things to let you know before riding with us in Vietnam. Our guide will explain you one more time on the trip but it’s always better to know this beforehand. This way allows us to deliver the top class of responsible tourism.

Hi , I Josep Vilaseca, from Barcelona, Spain. I am preparing a trip to Southeast Asia, with my motorcycle. The motorcycle will be sent from Spain to Bangkok. The entry into Vietnam will be in the Lao Bao border from Laos. After Hue, Ho Chi Min City, Mekong Delta, and exit to Cambodia in Xa Xai border.
That documentation and permits I need to make that journey? You handled those documents and permits? That cost have those documents and permits?
My motorcycle is a Moto Guzzi NTX 750 cc, 1992 model.
I await your response.
Thanks from Barcelona.
Hello Josep. Unfortunately, we don’t assist in getting a permit to temporarily import your bike for use in Vietnam because the paperwork is very very complicated and costs no less than 1,200$US. Therefore, we never privide any cross-border motorbike tours. Good luck with your research.
