Ho Chi Minh City police confiscated 10 motorcycles with Thai license plates after their Thai riders who entered Vietnam as tourists were caught violating traffic laws on Wednesday. 

According to traffic police, the foreign riders entered a car lane on the Hanoi Highway, District 9.

They failed to present driving licenses endorsed by Vietnamese authorities and could also not produce the vehicles' documents, police said, adding that the riders only presented their Thai-issued driving licenses.

However, police released the bikes later that day after representatives of Binh An Trade, Tourism and Services in Hanoi presented a letter signed by the Ministry of Transport allowing the caravan of Thai motorcycles and cars to take part in traffic in Vietnam for tourism between November 16 and 23, an officer told Thanh Nien.

The tour started in Thailand and entered Vietnam via Laos at the Bo Y international border gate in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum.

The caravan also travelled to the beach town of Phan Thiet in the central province of Binh Thuan, HCMC, the resort town of Da Lat in the central highlands province of Lam Dong, Pleiku Town in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai, and ended at Bo Y.
