These Beautiful Kodachrome Slides Show People Riding Motorcycles on the Streets of Nha Trang, Vietnam in 1969

Nha Trang is a coastal city and capital of Khánh Hòa Province, on the South Central Coast of Vietnam. It is well known for its beaches and scuba diving and has developed into a popular destination for international tourists, attracting large numbers of backpackers, as well as more affluent travelers on the Southeast Asia circuit; it is already very popular with Vietnamese tourists, with Nha Trang Bay widely considered as among the world's most beautiful bays.

The most common and well-documented street view of urban Vietnam is that of a crowded crossroad with tons of motorbikes. But back in 1969, people in Vietnam rarely used motorbikes for transportation. So these Kodachrome photographs below taken by Flickr's member ElectroSpark in Nha Trang, Vietnam from 1969 are amazing and rarely seen. They features motorbike transporting of Nha Trang people in the 1960s and 1970s.
