When I was in Hoi An, I saw a very curious scene. Boats would carry a large number of motorcycles to nowhere.
I wondered if they were new motorcycles, being shipped from the dealer’s to the wherever they sell motorbikes.
So when I saw one of the boats passing by while I was on the boat ride back to Hoi An from My Son, I looked carefully.
There are people sitting in the boat, shaded from the sun under a small roof while the motorcycles were out in the sun.
I realized that the boats carried the motorcycle drivers and their vehicle across the river. It totally makes sense now. A lot of people ride motorcycles in Vietnam and somehow they need to cross the river.
