As part of my travels in 2001 I ventured through Vietnam with Intrepid Travel. Following is an overview of that experience.
[singlepic=946,150,,,right]Vietnam…Scooters…Everywhere. They are your first impression when entering the country and a lasting one throughout. After all…they are everywhere. The best part about Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) were the scooters. If you weren’t zooming around the city on back of one, you had to dodge them. And what fun that was – just like a live action game of Frogger. And since the few sidewalks that are around turn into parking lots for the scooters, you are forced to become one with the traffic. Add on top of that cyclos, bicycles, and the occassional bus or car, you’ve got fun every step of the way. This all goes for the rest of Vietnam as well, on different levels – but it’s all part of the charm.
