    Default UK to China/Vietnam

    Hi Simon. This sounds great! I am also planning this exact trip next year. France ( Calais) across Russia down to Vietnam. But, insanely, by bike. Just started researching it. It would be fantastic if we could keep in touch.


    Cheers

    Martin

    I've got a friend that recently got back from doing this journey but on a bike. He said it was an incredible experience and that he couldn't recommend it too highly. In short, yes it is entirely possible. He did recommend that you should always carry the equivalent of a few hundred quid of the currency of the next country you're travelling to as border control can be unnecessarily difficult. He was told this by someone that he met along the way that was making a similar trip. Can't remember whether he ended up having to grease any palms but I guess it's worth thinking about. Good luck and enjoy!

    Default I'm driving to Vietnam from the Uk. would love your advice on legal issues.

    I'm driving to Vietnam from the UK in my van, i've made a big S across Europe and now i'm taking a short break to earn a little after the ridiculously over-priced clutch blew up, so i've left my van in Greece.

    I'm planning to hit the road again soon, but have ran into logistical issues as the VAT, MOT and Insurance are all now expired. I was wondering if i could ask what you guys did for those issues as you traveled? (I'm not planning on bringing the van back to the UK afterwards).

    I'd love your help, as your trip sounds amazing and i'm eager to get going again.

    Here's my site about the road trip, and my project which its publicizing, if you're interested: http://focallocal.org/

    Kind wishes,

    Unless you get an amphibious Car (can drive on roads and water) But then you could just miss russia altogether.
    I'm guessing you've never heard of the channel tunnel then??

    You can't drive through the Channel Tunnel though.

    Default Asian Road trip

    I am hoping to travel from the UK to Thailand in my Camper Van with my Yellow Labrador.
    Any advice would be very welcome on problems I may come across.
    Route planned, across Europe, in to Russia from the Ukraine, out via Kazakhstan, and then through China and through to Thailand.

    Regards, Tony
