Our first stop in Vietnam was Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital and also the country’s second largest city. One of the first things we did after arriving was hop on a tuk-tuk and go for a cruise along the streets – a great way to see the city, and still not get exhausted by the high temperature and humidity that covers the city in the warm summer months 🙂
If you wonder what a tuk-tuk is, the best way to explain it would be to call it a bicycle-powered rickshaw – the work tuk-tuk is actually the Vietnamese version of the word rickshaw, so… If you look at the picture below, you will see how they look like! In Hanoi each tuk-tuk is only for one person (when I travelled in Cambodia and Thailand the tuk-tuks were for several people each), and they are actually quite comfortable. Another plus is the price; a tour around the neighbourhood is very cheap!
I’ve got plenty of pictures, as we went on quite a long tour, and I hope you like them! Enjoy, and have a lovely day everyone! 🙂
