i went to saigon last month, but i hardly saw any cyclos, mostly a sea of motorbikes!

cyclos have been put away for its clumsiness and slow-speed that blocked those narrow streets in this city...
you went here for vacation?

ahh, i see. i guess i have to go to a smaller town to see them?

yes, i went on vacation, but sadly just for four short days. there's so much more i wanted to see!

sorry i dont think so, cyclos eliminated partly thanks to Japanese motobikes ;>). Instead of spending much energy on pedalling, people use motobikes to carry poor clients who dont have much money for taxis
come back someday and i'll be your tour guide.

The last time I was in a vehicle like this was in Hong Kong in 1964. Then they weren't even using cycles. They were pulling them by hand.
This picture brings back a lot of memories.

manpull cyclo was common in this city back in the first half of 20th century only... people here were in the same styles as of Chinese one, as brothers...
