    Quick question- on my travels i've found a few interesting pipes in Laos and plan to bring them with me throught the rest of my trip. i'll be heading to vietnam (probably via bus) and was wondering if this is a bad idea. The pipes have never been used in any way, and were simply bought as souvenirs for the mantle. please advise what i should expect. thank you very much!

    Pipes, what kind of pipes? If you are talking about bongs I would think no trouble at all although I had one confiscated at Hanoi airport because they deemed it a potential weapon!Bongs are used in Vietnam to smoke tobacco. if it's an opium pipe I don't know.Though I doubt you'll get into trouble if they are clean.

    As long as they're clean and not clogged up with hash, then I'd expect no problems at all.
