Travel & Living in Hanoi, Vietnam

Before Top Gear – Vietnam Special

Before Top Gear – Vietnam Special inspired thousands of Brits to book their holidays to Vietnam, Jeremy Clarkson was here before.

Some 25 years ago or so ago, the then youthful TV presenter was on a break from the world-famous BBC 2 motoring show and presenting a solo series called Jeremy Clarkson’s Motor World. Episode Two of the first series was filmed in Vietnam and included a review of Vietnam’s Russian-built jeep. Predictably, Clarkson wasn’t a big fan, going on to conclude the “common car” was the world’s worst. And that’s quite a claim.

Take a look for yourself with this clip from Motorworld. Interesting, too, to see a little glimpse of Vietnam circa 1994. The Vietnam episode first aired in the UK in January 1995.
