Kicking Back; Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

A man kicks his feet up for a nap on his motorbike near a busy intersection in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City (Siagon), Vietnam.

Motorbikes are the most popular means of getting around Vietnam, and account for 95% of all registered vehicles. Roads are often packed thick with other vehicles, and as a result the roads are amongst the most dangerous in the world, averaging 67 deaths per year per 100,000 vehicles (compared to 12 deaths per year per 100,000 vehicles in the United States).

Bangka By Night; San Vicente, Philippines

A traditional Filipino bangka (banca) boat sits anchored offshore of San Vicente on the island of Palawan in the Philippines.

Bangkas (or bancas) are the traditional wooden boats of the Philippines, which you’ll see scattering the coast anywhere you travel. They’re characterized by their double-outrigger style, which provides enough stability that the vessel itself can be kept long and narrow, and therefore more hydrodynamic.  These boats are still very popular today in the South Pacific, and are used for anything from transportation to commercial fishing.
