    I probably in the wrong forum, because I will do this trip with a car not a bike, i am sorry for this, but this forum is my only hope.... due to the information about crossing border. I believe you guys are incredible... and experience enough to give some advise to me.

    Let start.

    My plan trip is Malaysia - Thailand - Laos - Vietnam - China - Hong Kong
    KL - Sadao - Savannakhet - Nakhon Phanom - Ban Nape - Kim Cuooong -Phu Thach - Vinh - Mong Cai - Guangzhou - Kowloon

    If you go to the maps.live.com and type in Rawang, Malaysia to Kowloon, HK. It will return this route.

    Here the question start.
    My car is registered in Malaysia and is that possible I can do this trip?
    1. Anything I will need to apply before my trip?
    2. There is some alternative route
    - Malaysia - Thailand - Laos - China - Hong Kong
    - Malaysia - Thailand - Myammar - China - Hong Kong
    which route is the perferable?

    I will need every piece of information as possible.

    And last, thanks in advance.

    Almost nobody has managed to enter Vietnam on a foreign registered vehicle recently. I assume Lao and Cambodian vehicles can enter, but if you are not a citizen or at least resident there, then I don't know.

    For China (unless you are a Chinese national), you need to organise your trip with a recognised tour company. Fixed itinerary and guide for the whole time in mainland China are compulsory. Lead times for organising this vary from 2 to 4 months. Expect to pay about 150 $US per day.

    We used Transhimalaya.com. Very professional and fast, but not the cheapest.

    I understand that is almost impossible to crossing border from laos to vietnam......

    So the trip change to Malaysia - Thailand - Laos - China - HK!
    The total milleage is 3030miles............... which 700 extra compare with the vietnam route......

    The Transhimalaya.com is not working.....

    Despite signing govt to govt cross border transport agreements, the Viets won't let in vehicles other than left hand drive. So no rocking up at the border & expecting to drive / ride in.

    Drive Indochina are the S E Asia experts
    http://www.driveindochina.com/
    to consult, if you want to buy a package.

    One question here!

    I heard the Highway 3 in Laos is fill with bitumen from Thailand to China, isn't it true?

    If is it true, then is a good news for.

    I have managed to get the China Government Website to get the information about the china temporary vehicle entry permit.

    The only problem now is with Hong Kong. I heard no car can enter to HK...anyone know about it?
