I have ridden a little in Vietnam. I am planning a trip from Kunming in Yunnan Province of China to Hanoi in Vietnam.
Has any one cycled in Yunnan? Particularly what about getting down close to the Vietnam border at Hekou?
In Vietnam we will turn right and go via Sa Pa and out through Son La towards Dien Bien Phu (although not necessarily all the way to DBP).
Has anyone done this route?
Any information appreciated.
