Vietnam (part 9)

Leaving Dalat  with the van . Busy road with motorcycles transporting anything  they have to. Most people don’t own a car.

On this post  it will be again more photos than text. Take time to look at them and imagine the life over there.  On the first photo you see a gray van. This is one of the two van our group use while traveling between places when we are not cycling.

We passed a  smoky landfill.

After about 2 hours, we started our cycling day.

We had lunch in a small restaurant. In the middle of nowhere.

After that lunch,  it was a ride downhill for 10 km ! I will never forget that ride.  And then another 5 km. It was then very hot : 40C. We shuttled to Phan Thiet  where we would be spending 2 nights.

Facing the sea. Very windy  but charming area !

Are you thinking it would be  fun to explore this country ?  I heard that more people want to go in Vietnam than a few years a go .  More on this area on my   next post ! Thanks for reading and leaving a comment.

  1. Tout un périple de visiter un pays à vélo. On prend le temps et on savoure les petites endroits inusités. Merci du partage , France.

    • Merci de ta visite Martin. Ce fut un voyage très interessant. A pied ou a vélo on voit différemment qu’en voiture ( ou en bus ou en train). C’est plus lent et peuà peu on enregistre tous ces lieux en memoire ( et carte mémoire !) La semaine prochaine…la suite.

  2. It is indeed fascinating to see this country, so different from our own, and with such a history.
    I loved the little restaurant in the middle of nowhere, and seeing people carry such huge loads on their motorcycles!
    As for photography, the last photo in the list is a winner…. it is gorgeous, and if it wasn’t honored with “Explore” on Flickr, then it SHOULD have been! Beautiful beautiful!

  3. Ça devait être très difficile de rouler alors qu’il faisait 40°. Il faut être en bonne condition physique.
    Tu as encore de très belles photos de là-bas, particulièrement celles de la plage. Vous aviez aussi une belle chambre; j’imagine qu’il n’y avait pas de climatisation… mais les nuits doivent être plus fraîches.
    Toujours très intéressant de te lire France!

    • Nous avons eu un peu de tout pendant nos jours de velo au Vietnam. la pluie, le soleil. Faut dire que cette etape etait un peu eprouvante. On a eu droit a une bonne biere froide … Pour la climatisation des chambres – je ne me rappelle pas. Je crois que non. Nous logions dans de tres beaux hotels et tout etait tres bien.
