43/50.-Hanoi, Hang Dao Street


During the hottest months action does not start in the streets of Hanoi till the sun sets. In the narrow streets of the Old District you only see tourists walking around and locals with their motorbikes during the daytime. Around five pm is rush hour. Millions of motorbikes take workers home, or to a local restaurant. After dinner, around six, many Vietnamese go for a walk in streets like Hang Dao. Many others take their lovers for a ride with their bikes. A good motorbike is a symbol of status in Vietnam.
