Tour Description

Vietnam motorcycle tour

Rally Indochina is an exciting fundraising road trip in the far north of Vietnam, which directly supports the highly respected Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. The Rally has raised US$321,000 for the Foundation since its inception in 2011. Kick-starting your journey in Hanoi, you will explore remote hill tribe villages, climb high mountain passes and enjoy areas rarely seen by foreign visitors. Not only will you see the world through new eyes, but by working side by side with the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, your donations will go directly towards their fight against child labour abuse and trafficking. Rally Indochina is a fabulous experience of a lifetime.
