Captain Obvious: Vietnam

  • Can anything and everything- up to and including a crate of live chickens- be carried on the back of a motorbike?
  • Are seatbelts optional extras?
  • Are carseats for children clearly unnecessary?
  • Is customer service taken so seriously it is practically a religion?
  • Can you see evidence of the notion that if you can’t fit four people on a motorbike then you’re not trying hard enough?
  • Is incessant honking the unofficial soundtrack to HCMC?
  • Should only those with balls of steel get on the back of a xé ôm in Hanoi or HCMC?
  • Can you get some of the best and most unusual noodle soups you’ve ever tasted in your life?
