Indochina Road Classic
A name full of history and memories of colonial times!
The term Indochina refers to the intermingling of Indian and Chinese in uences in the culture of the region. Real independence did not come to the region until after the Geneva Conference of 1954.
The French left a multitude of colonial buildings and infrastructures while the Americans dotted war relics along the way in Laos and Vietnam. The rally is a drive through Indochina’s colonial past and the amazing landscapes forged by the Mekong River.

Crossing the border into North Vietnam, you will discover famous places like Dien Bien Phu, Sapa with its amazing steep rice terraces.
