Hue

Hue was a good chance to rent mopeds for the first time in Vietnam. We rented two from our hostel and rode to the surrounding sights of the city:

Our 100cc/110cc beasts:

A quiet beach we stumbled upon:

…Which we agreed would be a fitting setting for our group photo haha:

One of the main reasons I would recommend renting mopeds, aside from their ease of use, is for the hilarious road users and obstacles you pass along the way. Which for us included motorbikes with entire families crammed on, chickens crossing the road, both drivers and passengers carrying the most awkward of objects and a motorbike with a basket full of live ducks attached to its side.

The rest of our days in Hue were pretty chilled – a bit of wandering, some nights out and a little sight seeing:
