Top Gear’s Christmas special kept me entertained last night and caught all three presenters heading to Vietnam and riding motorcycles in epic rainstorms for eight days during the wet season.
The current series was ended in style as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May travelled to Vietnam. Their aim was to travel the entire length of the country in just 8 days. Jeremy became very frustrated with his vesper and Richard Hammond commented on how difficult it was to ride in such heavy rain!
First they each bought some suitable transport for the trip and, despite having several million Dong in their pockets, this proved to be of rather less value than they originally thought, especially in one of the most expensive car markets in the world.
Nonetheless, the presenters were resourceful and, with their wheels finally sorted, they set off on one of the most spectacular and incredible Top Gear road trips ever attempted! Great geographical entertainment!
