Photographer's Note

Just as in all other cities in Asia, cyclos are widely available on every corner in Hanoi particularly in the Old Quarter. They are part of chaotic streetscape, popular amongst the local and visitors alike, less expensive and there is no doubt that they are a nice, relaxed and exciting way to get around. Definitely they are much safer than the vulnerable feeling of being on the back of some random guy's 'motobai' (motorbike) though.

So hop onto one of these cyclos and feel part of the crazy street traffic. It is a wonderful way to see Hanoi in style and at a human pace from the roadside, you can hear all the noise and at times it is even nerve-wracking when the rider managed to worm around his way through small gaps in the traffic! Real fun but very educational experience to first-timer.

So enjoy the ride....
