Vietnamese roads are a pandemonium of motorbikes. A staggering 95% of registered vehicles in Vietnam are motorcycles or scooters. Any traveller who has been to Vietnam are bound to have a story (or two) to tell on motorbike encounters. Although Vietnam has undergone rapid development in recent years, the fast growing number of motorbikes have surpassed more than what the road system could handle. For a population of 90 million people, there are 37 million registered motorbikes in Vietnam. Imagine that! Only born and bred Vietnamese are able to navigate through the overwhelming sea of motorbikes on the streets.
Naturally, the raging presence of motorcycles will pose to be a danger to any foreigner unfamiliar with the local culture. In fact, the Vietnamese government only just opened up legislation to recognize international driving licenses since 2015. Self-driving in Vietnam was virtually unheard of before then. Yet the poor standards of driving and disadvantageous legislation remains a deterrent for foreign travellers wanting to attempt to take the wheel on their own. This is why car rental in Vietnam is always understood as ‘car rental with private driver’ in the local context. The Vietnamese will automatically include a private driver for you when booking a car.
Tourism remains one of the key driving forces of the Vietnamese economy, hence rest assured that car rental providers and their private drivers are well-accustomed to doing sightseeing tours in the country. Casual travellers in this part of the world will risk being run down by motorbikes lest they acquire the art of dodging motorcycles in a short period of time. Ensure that you travel safe and sound, without compromise to your journey. Book a car rental in Vietnam and have peace of mind when travelling in this beautiful Southeast Asian country.
The Socialist Republic of Vietnam has an interesting, slender, long S-shaped profile when viewed on the map. The country shares borders with Laos, Cambodia and China, bordering the South China Sea. Vietnam boasts a coastline of 3,260 kilometres, with a landscape consisting of hills, mountains, deltas and continental shelf.
Known for its beaches, rivers, Buddhist pagodas and thriving cities, there is always something worth exploring as you make your way through the country. Map your journey from either north to south, or vice versa – and take heed of the climate change as you move northwards or southwards. Regardless of which city you choose to start your journey, Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh (Saigon, if you will) have an abundance to offer to the eager adventurer. The north boasts rice terraces on gently sloping mountains; while the fabled Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-visit to capture the quintessence of Vietnamese lifestyle. As you make your way down south of Vietnam, check out the Mekong Delta, the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam. The Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam is a vast maze of rivers, swamps and islands, home to floating markets, pagodas and villages surrounded by rice paddies.
