Vietnam Caravan Tours

For those travelers who love traveling to Vietnam on their personal vehicles, a Vietnam caravan tour is such a popular type of travel. Aside from spectacular roads crossing Vietnam, the route through Laos ” Cambodia ” Thailand ” Myanmar lately has become a new trend for this kind of travel.

The word caravan is derived from Karwan (in the Kurdish language) meaning group of desert travelers. Then comes the word caravanserai or karwansiray which means a large inn enclosing a courtyard providing accommodation for caravans and caravansara ” an inn surrounding a court in eastern countries where caravans rest at night. And nowadays, caravan is used to describe a group of travelers journeying together by car or on a motorbike. They often go with 2 or more vehicles, running on roads through many regions, countries to visit the stunning landscapes, historic ” cultural sites. Caravan tours are more and more popular with a bigger meaning. It™s the journeys of friendship, the passion for discovery, especially the connection with no boundaries, distances, social status. They all are just Caravan spirits. 

It is the freedom and comfortableness in moving and living activities during the whole trip that connect the community to enrich life experience. That™s why caravan tours have developed quite strongly around the world, especially in developed countries. The trend has gradually spread to Southeast Asian countries, especially Vietnam.

Vietnam is one of the top destinations among Southeast Asian countries and getting attention for its beauty and distinctiveness of nature, cultures, and people. As a tourism magnet for backpackers, especially those who love to enjoy their adventures on a motorbike ” motopackers, crossing into Vietnam from other countries with personal bikes is growing incredibly fast irrespective of its price and rather tough conditions. 

In recent years, crossing into Vietnam from other countries with the personal bike (Vietnam caravan tour) is legally possible as the Vietnamese laws have been loosening to welcome more international tourists. However, it’s still difficult especially for novice travelers and impossible for those who don’t work through an international travel agency. In this article, BM Travel Adventure will give you detailed information about conditions & procedures for foreign motorbikes to cross the border and join traffic in Vietnam. Let’s scroll down! 

8 reasons why you should take a Vietnam caravan tour

1. A great way for adventurous travelers to experience a real Vietnam

During a Vietnam caravan tour, you are free to stop or go anywhere you want and plan your own travel itinerary. On the way, you will also have time to travel, discover, take photos of beautiful sceneries of this beautiful S-shaped country, and join any festivals you meet. 

2. A trip with your family 

You and your beloved family can visit and uncover the new roads together as well as learn more about the distinctive cultures of Vietnam. It™s sure to be a memorial trip to anyone in your family for years to come.

3. Experience of driving yourself abroad

Driving your car/ motorbike abroad is such an unforgettable to any tourist. If you are in Thailand, drive in the left lane. But when you are in Vietnam, run your set of wheels in the right. 

4. Traveling in a group is safer

Safety is the most important for each trip. And for a Vietnam caravan tour, it™s the top priority for each group of passengers. Depending on the number of vehicles, we can arrange as follows: 2 to 4 well-experienced tour guides who know all about the terrain and region, which vehicle goes first or last, along with equipment for each caravan to easily contact each other during the tour.

5. Conquer spectacular routes in Vietnam

Taking a Vietnam caravan tour gives bikers and drivers a chance to challenge their riding and driving skills. It™s when they carry themselves crossing the amazing routes that they have never been through. And get exciting when driving legally at the speed of 100km while enjoying the unspoiled beauty along the coastal line of southwest Cambodia or passing the winding Ba Den Pass. Every when escaping from the tough sections or at the end of the trails stop for a break and a photoshoot at an ideal and idyllic spot for viewing the beauty of nature, breathing fresh air, and relaxing.
