Travelling by motorbike in Vietnam carries significant risk says Gov.UK in its latest update dated April 10.
There are frequent road traffic accidents and fatal crashes. Compliance with local road regulations by drivers is poor.
According to World Health Organisation statistics, you are over eight times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident in Vietnam than in the UK (an estimated 24.5 deaths per 100,000 people in Vietnam compared to 2.9 per 100,000 people in the UK).
A number of British nationals have died in motorbike accidents in Vietnam, and many more have been involved in accidents, with some injured very seriously says Gov.UK.
