The rally

Over the last couple of weeks, an amazing event has taken place here in Vietnam: a motorbike ride from Hanoi to Hoi An, over 12 days, with about 30 riders on Soviet-era Urals exploring the country in style.

And along the way, they've raised some significant funds to fight against child trafficking. 

This was the second annual ride - known as Rally Indochina - and it was such a huge hit that there'll be a 3rd in 2013. Keep an eye on their website because the places fill up fast!

Here are some shots that the organisers and riders took along the way.

The riders always took time to make friends with local people...

And safety was always the first priority... but you might need to take our word for that.

There were plenty of surprising finds along the way!

Switching pace for a day, the riders took a boat to visit the Blue Dragon centre in Hue.

All up, it was a brilliant ride. The Rally Indochina team deserves a huge THANK YOU for their support, and hats off to the riders who raised so much support to stop trafficking!
