Often one can read that when driving in a rented transport in Vietnam for violations on the road is easier to get away with a bribe than to pay the official fine. Sometimes this is true, but keep in mind that in a country struggling with corruption, and if you get to principled policeman, and could fall under the criminal liability. Well, if we broke the rules and feel that you have to extort "bribes" instead of a fine, should at least know the dimensions of the official fines to bargain, otherwise you can pay even more than the official fine.

That explains why you have any doubt, all the time. A "high-risk" advisers recommend not to do a visa, because it seems like you are exceeding the visa-free stay small. To make it clearer:
Russian citizens visa for Vietnam for up to 15 days is not needed, but there is a belief and practice that a slight excess of the period of 1-2 days, the border guards close their eyes. This is true, but it might not be so lucky and will have to pay a fine or bribe, or even problems may arise when boarding the flight back home.
If you are in Vietnam stay clean 18 days, excluding travel time, I would never recommend it. It is better to do things right,i.e. to apply for a visa on arrival. Especially for you (citizens of Russia) it will be free. You only need to register through the online letter of invitation, which costs $ 8, maybe even cheaper than you can find here and all expenses. How to apply for a visa on arrival, we all painted in detail. ...
