If one were to visit vietnam, there’s thing that one would not miss, the bicycles. From the urban areas, all the way to villages – bicycle seems to be main transport vehicle. After bicycle, would be motorbikes and then cars. I believe, as the nation develops, more and more motorbikes and later cars will appear.
When i visited Saigon in June, I took the opportunity to take a bike tour a long the Mekong River (i think). A bike tour is definitely a lot more engaging than to take tour buses. In fact, by riding bicycles – i can cover a lot more places! In fact, I would not mine repeating the same tour – but perhaps spend a few nights in the villages 🙂 Its always good to blend in… :p
