Ho Chi Minh Trail, Vietnam

Having visited Vietnam before but not explored on the bikes when I returned a year later I was determined to do a tour on the bikes, and whilst in Hoi An we planned the perfect route into rural central Vietnam to go and explore.

From Hoi An we drove out towards My Son, but along the way we stopped off to sample some local coffee and to see how they made rice crackers. About 50k later we reached My Son, the whole area is surrounded by two mountain ranges and it felt like Jurassic park when we were driving through the entrance gates! My Son is a cluster of abandoned and partially ruined Hindu temples constructed between the 4th and the 14th century AD by the kings of Champa. The temples were destroyed badly during the war and some of them are just piles of rocks, they are trying there best ti rebuild. 

After a hot day of the bikes our next destination was a dip in the stunning waterfalls, where we went for a swin and a cool down. We were quite far off the beaten track so we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves, it was beautiful.
