The Streets of Saigon on Motorbike

By Paul Tocatlian.

See what it’s like to ride through the streets of Saigon from District 1 to District 2 on a motorbike. Taste the fervor of the traffic. See what it’s like first-hand as this video is filmed from the backseat of a motorbike. Ho Chi Minh City is a motorbike-crazed place, streets filled with two-wheelers zipping along at all hours of the day and night – my kinda place!

The video was taken with an older – but still very capable – iPhone 6 Plus with the help of a DJI Osmo Mobile that helped stop camera shakes and turned every shot into a cinematographic masterpiece – if I may say so myself 😉

You might also enjoy some of the pictures I took last year of motorized bikes zipping through the streets of Saigon, Da Nang, Hoi An, Hue, Halong Bay, and Ha Noi. What a spectacle watching thousands of motorbikes in – almost – perfect harmony.

Still looking for more? Feel free to download any of these high definition wallpapers to dress up your desktop/laptop computer background. Many of these pictures were taken during my first trip to Vietnam in February 2016 that took us from Ho Chi Minh City to Ha Noi.

If it has two wheels, you’re likely to find it on the streets in Vietnam. Feels the exhilaration of riding through the streets of Saigon on a motorbike. […]
