Twelve rally Indochina motorbike riders started their 9-day journey through the spectacular mountains in the north of Vietnam. While having the experience of a lifetime, they are raising funds for the fight against human trafficking and to change the lives of Vietnamese children in crisis.

Riders are driving Vintage 125cc Russian Minsk motorcycles or modern Honda dirt bikes down the Ho Chi Minh Trail to experience some of the best riding that Asia has to offer.


According to organisers, Rally Indochina is open to any motorcyclist with a sense of adventure and a desire to support children with less fortunate living circumstances.

The riders will head deep into the northern mountains, crisscrossing the massive Hoang Lien Son mountain range to arrive in the wide valley of Dien Bien Phu. After visiting a Blue Dragon project in a remote village, they will travel to Sapa to experience the region’s famous mountains and ethnic minorities.

Held annually in Vietnam, Rally Indochina is the largest annual charity motorbike ride in South East Asia. Open to any adventurer with a desire to put something back into Vietnam, 500 USD of the entry fee is directly donated by the rider to the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. The Foundation uses these funds to fight against child trafficking from the central coast and northern mountains into illegal sweatshops in Ho Chi Minh City.

Over the past few years, more than 100 participating motorcyclists from around the world have raised more than USD257,000, a large part of which goes to fight child and women trafficking./.
