Typical traffic in Hanoi

One size bike
There are many motorbikes. Hanoi, the capital,
has 3.5M people and 2M motorbikes. There
doesn’t seem to be any laws relating
to these motorbikes – crash helmets
are a rarity, children often stand up, they
often carry up to 5 passengers (sometimes
5 adults), carry what you like no matter
what size, even a coffin..
There are also many bikes, especially in
the country. We didn’t see any children’s
size bikes – all bikes seem to be the
same size and the children have to manage.
Often one pushes and another rides as they
can’t reach the pedals.
