1980s Vietnam Vespa





In the past, Vietnam had a lot of nice Vespa/Lambretta models. But from 1990-2000, many foreigners came and exported most of nice, rarely model. Now it's hard to find original bike in good condition.
I love pictures taken by film camera: the color of it and i can keep it longer.
Pictures credit to Saigon Scooter Center and mr Vespa XXX.

A 5000km road trip on a vespa, riding in 22 days.
4 vespas, 7 persons.

Day 1: We ride from Saigon to Nha Trang city, 450km. I had rode this many many times. We choose to ride near the beach pass Mui Ne beach, not on 1st Highway.

Take this picture in Quy Nhơn city. 


 Hoang's vespa have problem with the back shock. Luckily, it's easy to fix.

Banh Mi, the best street food in the world, in Hoi An. 


 My vespa friend Catie, from Malaysia, come and ride with us.
Good hotel in Hoi An: An Hội hotel.
Eat: Ms Sáu restaurant, near An Hoi hotel. Wait a litle bit long for food but good.

Day 4: Hoi An to Da Nang. Hotel in Da Nang: Viễn Đông.

Day 5: Da Nang to A Luoi town on Ho Chi Minh trail.


 Hin - like a monk. :D

Day 6: A Luoi to Phong Nha - Ke Bang on West Truong Son road.
Tips when riding this road:
+ All concrete road, need a good tyres.
+ Nearly 200km dont have gas station, we should bring extra gas.
+ A lot of pass, cant ride fast, we should ride early.
