An irrepressible sense of freedom, a winding, open road, lush green jungles, and you. Sound incredible? Oh, we’ve ignored the most important element in this scenario – a thumping, pulse-pounding engine, cradled between your legs, rocketing you to destinations, unknown, and adventures aplenty. Strap on your helmet, don your leather boots and prepare for the trip of a lifetime. Tag along with thrill seeker, Anton Swanepoel, as he treats you to a virtual trip along one of the world’s most notorious highways (Ho Chi Minh Trail) and other equally alluring hotspots.
This is a guide like no other. The writer lives in Cambodia, and uses it as a base for extensive exploration of the Indochina Peninsula by motorcycle, documenting places and events in text and film. His experience, and the knowledge gleaned from such, is the backbone of this detailed guide. Touring in a country, perhaps thousands of miles from home, may seem dangerous, even foolhardy, but find peace in the words of one who’s been there. Ride every mile he’s ridden and walk every path he’s trod, avoiding the pitfalls, which are few and far between.
Learn the lay of the land, what to see and what to avoid. With the help of Mr. Swanepoel, choose a motorbike that’s right for you – no detail has been spared. Find your way, and prepare, by viewing dozens of pictures, which act as landmarks to further simplify the trek.
