Snapshot: Vietnamese Motorbikes
America has moving trucks and Vietnam has…motorbikes.
Narrow streets and a high population density have made motorbikes the primary mode of transport for Vietnamese locals. In photographer Hans Kemp’s eye-opening book Bikes of Burden, he shows the gravity-defying ways in which these two-wheeled workhorses carry everything from baskets and goldfish to hula hoops and entire families. Plus, they’re an incredibly immersive way for travelers to experience Vietnam. Take a seat and a street-level view.
