"Parking Mafia" Arround the City Tip by pmarshuk

Arround the City, Hanoi: 34 reviews and 58 photos


Favorite thing: The small lady in the yellow/green top in the centre of the picture obviously supplemented her income by renting out the space in front of her shop as a parking lot for mopeds.
People would bring up their bikes and she would haul them around finding space to fit them in and them get paid when they returned. In the old quarter parking space is at a premium as there are so many bikes around and the streets are so narrow.
Her shop also sold petrol, bike bits and acted as a bicycle repair shop. Pretty good for somthing only a couple of metres wide.

Sorry about my finger being across the bottom half of the picture - ooops.
