Cycles of history

cyclo_banner-wow-factor
Cyclos were one of the main mean of transportation in the old time

From symbol of the bourgeois to war machine to tourist
attraction, the cyclo rolls on

The patent for the pedicab, which first appeared in Marseille, France, was registered in the 1930’s. Its first recorded appearance in French Indochinese colonies in the Far East was in 1936, when two men took turns to drive a cyclo in a marathon from Phnom Penh to Saigon in order to prove the superiority of the vehicle.

Before that, there were rickshaws, introduced in the late 19th century from Hong Kong to Hanoi by a French ambassador. The image of a sweating coolie, bent over to pull a rickshaw with a master or a passenger on it was described by the famous Nguyen Cong Hoan as a ‘man-horse’ or ‘horse-man’. It made one feel uneasy, as social awareness and democratic spirit was being elevated. Shortly after the liberation of Hanoi (1954), they were eliminated as a symbol of the ‘man-exploiting-man’ way of life that the new regime wanted to eliminate. Only then came the stardom of the cyclo.

Before the August 1945 revolution, there were only a few cyclos. During the Occupation (1947-1954), because the war increased the city’s population, Hanoi’s few tram routes multiplied. Taxis and private cars were still rare; bicycles were the main means of getting around.

Our cyclos are nicer than their counterparts in neighbouring countries. There, the cyclist is seated in the front, and the passenger’s view is blocked by his back. Cyclos in some other places have the cyclist seated at one side like the motored three-wheelers, but even then a side view is blocked.

The cyclos used in Hanoi seem more elegant because the passenger is seated in the front, the cyclist at the back, so we don’t see the fatigue of another person and can enjoy a complete view. If the cyclist happens to be good-natured and loves to tell tales about people and places in town, the ride can be wonderful.

cyclo-4-wow-factor
Cyclos in Ha Noi

Fabulous writer Nguyen Tuan, back from visiting Saigon after the country’s reunification, remarked that the cyclos there looked smarter, with shining frames and spotless white seats, but the seat is too narrow in the back and is very uncomfortable for couples. He also said that the motored cyclos in the South carried heavy loads and run like tanks. Hanoi folks can’t stand them. Cyclos are the most civilized, polite and convenient vehicles. Cars are closed and too fast, you can’t see a thing, he said. He said he dream of seeing the leisurely cyclos coming back to Hanoi streets along with peace in the country.

He had to dream it because the cyclo’s fate is uncertain. As a means of public transport, during the socialist reforms, they had to become public property. Moreover, the changed social attitude made the passengers feel uncomfortable sitting while another person worked and sweat. It felt like exploitation, although well-paid exploitation.So the cylcos soon became mostly cargo carriers. They were redesigned to be sturdier, with less comfort, the cushion replaced by a wooden bar, the arms widened to support bulkier things and two hooks added to the footrest to facilitate pulling uphill.

The cyclo got its fame during the American bombing of the North Vietnam. It became an efficient aid for production and battle. It carried goods where motored vehicles couldn’t go. It evacuated people. It carried the wounded to hospitals. It carried arms and ammunition to battle fields. It even carried American airplane wreckage along the streets to boost the spirit. The cyclo has its place in the museum of wartime Hanoi.

cyclo-2-wow-factor
Cyclos in Ha Noi

Then came the Doi Moi. Many notions changed. Life’s demands became more and more diverse. Foreign tourists now come in waves. Our folks have more means to play with antiques-cyclos included. They are renovated, shined to be used for betrothal ceremonies. A betrothal procession on cars looks rich, but spiritless, while playful young boys and girls, carrying colourful trays and boxes of offerings and fruits, together with serious seniors, on open cyclos, in bright day light, merrily and orderly moving along the streets… Nothing can be sweeter than that.

The image of those processions immediately caught the eyes of the tourists, and the cyclos became an iconic means of transport of Hanoi, just like the horse-drawn carriages around Xuan Huong Lake in Dalat, or the brightly red double-decker busses of London. In recent years, long processions of cyclos wandering in the streets of Hanoi, mostly around the old quarter, became a familiar and cheerful sight.

Hanoi streets are not only tighter than those of London, but also much more crowded than those of Dalat. That’s a headache which has many times made the city’s authorities want to ban the cyclos to ensure smoother traffic. There was once even a plan to eliminate them completely. Many have expressed regret if that will really happen one day.

It reminded me of Nguyen Tuan’s story again, and his conversation with a Saigon cyclist. He asked, ‘In the war time were you afraid of the Americans?’ ‘No, they don’t pay, I kick their butt.’ ‘Afraid of hunger?’ ‘No! Hard to get rich, but if you are not lazy, it’s not hard to get by.’ ‘Then what are you afraid of the most?’ ‘Change of street names! Loss of orientation!’ he said.

Not only the cyclists, but everybody is afraid of the ‘loss of orientation’. But that’s exactly why we still have a glimpse of hope that the days of the cyclos are not over.

5 Wow Caves to Explore In Halong Bay

Until now, there’s no certain number of caves formed by 1969 islands on Halong Bay. Some of them are very famous while the others are less well-known or even unknown. The famous ones are the big and approachable caves in the centre of the bay, where you can explore by yourself during your private Halong cruise. Below is the list of 5 famous caves you should note to explore before travel to Halong Bay

1. Trinh Nu Cave (Virgin Cave)

trinh-nu-caveThe Trinh Nu Cave or Virgin Grotto is situated on the island range of Bo Hon 15 km south of Bai Chay Beach, the center beach of Halong city. To young couples, it is considered the symbol of truly love, a romantic place for taking oath of love. Entering Trinh Nu Grotto, you will find in the middle of the grotto a stone shaping a lying-girl with her long hair hanging down, looking to the sea with the eyes full of vain hope. Situated opposite to Trinh Nu Grotto, Trong (or Male) Grotto has a stone statue of a boy who turns his face to Trinh Nu Grotto. One still hears his vain scream in tune with the wind blowing into the cliff somewhere. The legend tells once was a beautiful fisherman’s daughter, whose family was so poor that it was in the service of the rich administrator of the fishing zone. He forced the father to give him the girl as a concubine. However, she refused as she already had a lover who was on the high seas catching fish to prepare for their wedding. The administrator, angered by her refusal, exiled her to a wild island until hunger and exhaustion. On one frightening night, amidst terrible rain and winds, she turned to stone. The image of the girl painfully waited in vain for her fiancé turns the cave into a sacred place for those who are in love

2. Sung Sot Cave (Amazing Cave)

hang-sung-sot-3Among the biggest and the most beautiful caves of Halong Bay, Amazing Cave welcomes a lot of visitors every year. Although the cave is getting more and more crowed of travelers to enter to be amazed, it’s worth for sightseeing as a symbol of Halong Bay. Ascending to the grotto, the way is covered by trees and foliage, offering lush landscape into the mountain. Sung Sot Cave is on the same island with Trinh Nu cave. The path to Sung Sot is quite steep and is lined with shady trees. The formations in the cave inspire a lot of interesting imagination of human and animals in varying poses. The sightseeing tour into the cave is just like a tour to witness the heaven with huge spaces revealed after narrow lines. Visitors come from surprise to surprise, that’s why It is named as Surprising or Amazing Cave.

3. Luon Cave

vinh-ha-long-hang-luonLuon Cave, the familiar destinations for most of kayaking tours on Halong Bay is famous for its green complex of in-mountain waters and islands. Here the cliffs stretch vertically out of the pure blue and smooth water. On a rowing boat or a kayak, passing through the pretty entrance, you come across a tranquil round lake, surrounded by luxuriant trees and high dangerous stone walls. If you are lucky, you will meet the naughty and lovely monkeys run to and fro in groups. In the lake, many species abound: shrimp, fish, and crab. This is perfect place to let your mind free and enjoy the extreme peace of the magical bay.

4. Thien Cung Cave (Paradise Cave)

dong-thien-cungSituated to the south-west side the bay, Thien Cung Cave is one of the most magical caves as its name. The way leading to Paradise cave is a perilous one, covered on both sides by thick forest. Passing a narrow gate, you will see the grotto’s 130-meter-long girth open up. Travelers are astonished by the very animated and splendid beauty which is made from stalactite. Especially, on the east wall of the grotto, there is a grandiose and imposing picture with characters of heroic tales. Once visiting Thien Cung Cave, you will have a sensation of just having seen a unique, meticulous, interesting fine-art museum which is created by nature; the pictures are beyond imagination, ability and intellect of the human beings.

5. Bo Nau Cave (Pelican Cave)

hang-bo-nau-wow-factorThe last name in the list of most popular caves on Halong Bay is Pelican Cave, a vaulted grotto covering 200 m2. Its wall features lots of stalactites and stalagmites in amazing shapes. At the entrance are three stones, looking like three fairies with their heads close to one another. Two men appear to be playing chess, with the third serving as a referee. Turning southward, Bo Nâu Cave enjoys cool wind. Standing there, one can hear the murmur of the sea all year round.
