Me and my boyfriend are currently in Mui Ne and have heard about the corrupt police scam on westerners riding scooters. I have read some previous forums on this topic and some people are saying the police are using the fact that it is illegal to ride/drive on the roads without a Vietnamese license. I find this quite hard to believe, as in America and Spain for example, I am able to rent a car with only my British license. Surely the reason must be that we would not be insured out here? Anyway, it seems the best way to get about here is by scooter. I have tried to research the areas to avoid whilst on a scooter and it just keeps saying the road near the red sand dunes. Is this the only place to avoid? And where is this road? As we don't know the area we don't just want to accidentally end up on it. Thank you!
