Bicycles in Vietnam are the main form of transportation for people from all walks of life. This mode of transport offers a relatively cheap and efficient form of getting around the city.
In remote rural areas, owning a bicycle is not just convenient; it can make a crucial difference to the lives of poor people, creating new opportunities to transport products to markets, and providing transportation to take children to school.

Jolie composition avec ce vélo en vedette mais également les lampions donnant de jolies taches de couleurs et la femme, très bien placée dans l'image.

I remember Hoi An as a very good place for renting bicycles. Not much traffic (this was almost 20 years ago) and a very nice countryside and a beach within easy reach. So this picture is to me like a monument to the pleasures I recall. You found a nice background with fine colourful details and a very nice light.

Looking to this photo I thought you have a lot of bicycle shots, so I would have suggested you are doing a dedicated theme for this. And just after, I notice it is done since a long time :-)
One day, I will take photo of my bike I am using every day, for your collection.

I prefer that they use bycicles as long as possible. I was in China 15 years ago, most people are on bicycles, now they are all on motocycle, it is noise, the air is polluted they are danderous. That is the charm of small tow like this and I want to visit before they become modernize. Great quality shot, the bycicle is the main anchor point, the small street lead us into the other part of the town and the laterns adds some charm and atmosphere.
Thanks and Have a good weekend.
