Travel Theme: Transportation in Vietnam
During the ten weeks I spent in Vietnam this summer, I encountered many examples of transportation. Some more bizarre than others. Click on an image for more details.
I saw several dogs on bikes while I was in Vietnam but it was very difficult to catch one on camera. I can’t imagine my own dog managing to keep still enough to be driven around cities like this!
It’s incredible how much you can carry on two wheels. Most people can’t afford cars or trucks so they pile as much as possible onto bikes.
These colourful cars have a lever so you can control how fast you whizz along the track down to the base of Datanla Falls in Vietnam. They’re also a great way to avoid climbing back up the hill, although the pulley system brings you up at a slower, controlled pace.
It’s common to see babies and children on motorbikes in Vietnam but I didn’t see many of these child seats!
This poor pig really doesn’t look too comfortable. We were in a car behind this truck travelling around the central highlands near Dalat in Vietnam.
These three lifeguards are using this round boat as their base from which to watch the swimmers at Ang Bahn beach near Hoi An, Vietnam.
This dragon fruit float was part of the very colourful and decidedly strange fruit parade at Suoi Tien Buddhist Theme Park near Ho Chi Minh City.
