Episode 8 of 8

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May go to Vietnam and are told to travel the length of the country in eight days - a task the US military failed to do in ten years.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May go to Vietnam and are told to travel the entire length of the country in just eight days, thereby achieving what the American military failed to do in ten years.

First they must each buy suitable transport for the trip, but the several million dong they have in their pockets prove to be rather less money than they thought, especially in one of the most expensive car markets in the world.

Nonetheless, the boys are resourceful and, with the wheels eventually sorted, they set off on one of the most spectacular and incredible road trips Top Gear has ever attempted.
