Pictures of some special means of transportation in Vietnam:

Since 2006, we've traveled to different places from the north to the south of Vietnam, mostly by car. I always sat on the passenger side of the car and had the camera ready to take pictures of interesting scenes on the roads. Because most of the roads in Vietnam are relatively rough, it is difficult to take good pictures. The most common way of transportation in Vietnam is motorbike (2007). You can see the whole family of 4 people on a small motorbike on the streets of Saigon or Hanoi. Motorbikes are used for everything from "xe ôm" (motorbike ride) to transporting goods including pigs, chickens, refrigerator... At every corner of streets in Hanoi or Saigon, you can see motorbikers waiting for customers.
