Rally Indochina is an exciting fundraising road-trip in the far north of Vietnam, which directly supports the highly respected Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation.
Kick starting your journey in Hanoi, you will explore remote hill tribe villages, climb high mountain passes and enjoy areas rarely seen by foreign visitors.
Not only will you see the world through new eyes, but by working side by side with the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, your donations will go directly towards their fight against child labour abuse and trafficking.
Rally Indochina really is a fabulous 9-day experience of a lifetime.

Working hand in hand with the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, Rally Indochina has raised over US$284,000 supporting the fight against child sex trafficking and illegal labour.
Rally Indochina not only challenges its participants on an epic adventure but works closely with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation to help put an end to child sex trafficking and illegal labour. All funds raised by Rally participants go directly to Blue Dragon to rescue and support the recovery of victims of trafficking.
In 2002 Michael Brosowski arrived in Hanoi from Australia. He soon found himself teaching English to shoeshine boys and organising football matches to lift their spirits. This was the start of a foundation that was to change thousands of lives to come.
Seventeen years later, Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation supports over 1,500 Vietnamese children across the whole of the country. Blue Dragon has made an everlasting impact on the streets of Vietnam and continues to rescue children from sex trafficking and labour trafficking..
Blue Dragon has rescued more than 850 victims of human trafficking. Funds raised will go towards rescuing more women and children from labour and sexual exploitation, and provide housing, counselling, education and training so they can rebuild their lives. Funding also helps to build communities and provide education about the dangers of trafficking to eliminate the chance of them ending up in a sweatshop or as a sex trafficking victim.
Rally participants will visit Ha Giang, one of the most beautiful and poorest provinces of the country, where Blue Dragon has a team working alongside local authorities to support survivors of trafficking rebuild their lives, and crucially, to prevent other young people and women from being trafficked into sexual and labour exploitation.
Rally Indochina starts in Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, which is a bustling city to get the senses going. From there you will set off on an epic convoy into the most beautiful regions of the country, making a large loop that ends back in Hanoi.
The route explores the remote mountains that straddle the border with China, cruising through breath taking scenery, visiting hill tribes and interacting with the locals.
En route to the most northern region on Vietnam, you will visit a Blue Dragon Foundation facility and see the beautiful work being done for the disadvantaged children there.
Surrounded by lush forests and rice terraced mountains, the overwhelming beauty becomes addictive, and the positive feeling the Rally produces amongst its participants is always very special and emotionally charged.
This unique route was meticulously designed by bikers who are all long-term residents in Vietnam. Over the years each road, historic site, scenic pass and valley has been studied to ensure a perfectly balanced adventure.
Rally Indochina is an annual event held in May. In 2020 Rally Indochina kick-starts in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Sunday, 10th of May. It’s an 9-day adventure that finishes on May 18th.
