Twin bicycles boom in Da Lat

The whole Da Lat City has been full of twin bicycles, people of the flower city now like using the bicycles to tour around the city. Having got up in the early morning, the people call one another to go by bicycle.

Those who cannot sit on a bicycle urge each other to see people cycling around Xuan Huong Lake. Many people spend VND 10,000 renting a two-saddle bicycle to cycle.

The tendency of using two-saddle bicycles to view the city instead of motorbikes in Da Lat is making the city cleaner and quieter with less dust.
Young people, instead of singing loudly at karaoke houses or spending time at cafe internet cafe like travelling on twin bicycles to view the scenery of the city. For obese women, cycling is a good means of losing their weight.

The maker of the twin bikes is a farmer Do Huu Khuong in Bui Thi Xuan road near Doi Co Lake. However, the idea of bringing the twin to Da Lat belongs to an 11th grader named Do Thi Thu Hang from Bui Thi Xuan Senior Secondary School.

In order to earn money to help her parents, Hang got the idea from the cyberspace to use the twin bicycles for foreign tourists to rent. Hang got 15 bikes made and opened a shop for rent. Several weeks later, there were 30 shops like Hangs in Da Lat.
