Fish on a bike

Personally, I think this is one of the coolest things I have seen in Hanoi. Hanging from a bike, which is parked on the side of a busy highway, are a decent collection of multi-coloured goldfish. There are usually a few fish in each plastic bag, depending on size, which is tied onto a little stand connected to the back of the bike. The seller waits patiently on the side of the road waiting for business.

So, if going to a pet shop is not your thing then you have the option of picking one up on your way home. I have seen the "fish guy" out and about before but I never had my camera handy. After my new camera purchase, thanks Dele!, it rarely leaves my side and I was lucky enough to see him today.


  1. Did you offer him a tip for the photo otherwise the least you could do is buy some fish- what a great place :)
