Vietnam is filled with motorbikes. Google the term “motorbikes everywhere” and your computer screen will be filled with images and articles about Vietnam. Watching the constant flow of motorbikes on the streets was eye opening for us. We saw motorbikes carrying families of four, ducks, pigs, small trees, huge bouquets of flowers, giant bags of trash…the list is endless.
