Moped Delivery Drivers Of Hanoi – Design You Trust

Moped Delivery Drivers Of Hanoi

From footballs to live fish, delivery mopeds piled high with unwieldy, unlikely goods are one of the Vietnamese capital’s most distinctive sights. As the city plans to ban motorbikes altogether, photographer Jon Enoch captured the drivers at work.

Live fish. Vietnam has the highest number of motorbikes in all of south-east Asia – Hanoi alone has 5m of them, and only half a million cars. Now the city is planning to ban them by 2030 to cut pollution. (Photo by Jon Enoch)


Children’s footballs. “Initially, that level of traffic that never stops is overwhelming to the senses – you wonder how you’ll ever manage to cross a road”. (Photo by Jon Enoch)


Car accessories. “After that initial shock, I began to be fascinated by the drivers and deliveries. Seeing really unusual deliveries, like a huge pile of eggs, towering bags of ice or an enormous mound of flowers, was visually so stunning I started asking people if I could take photos of them”.

Water for office workers. “There is such a skill to loading up a motorbike to this level, and knowing what your limits are, and then on top of that, getting to your destination with a full undamaged load”. (Photo by Jon Enoch)


Eggs. “I had been planning this series of photographs for a really long time, so when I read that motorbikes would be banned I knew I had to fly over and finish this project as soon as possible”. (Photo by Jon Enoch)


Live fish. Enoch travelled to Vietnam in February 2019, during the dry, cooler season, and worked every evening to capture atmospheric images in the glow of the city. (Photo by Jon Enoch)


Ice. “These motorbikes allow small businesses to operate”, he says. “It’s hard to imagine what the city will look and feel like without them”. (Photo by Jon Enoch)
