[Photos] 1960s Saigon: Fruit Vendors, Honda Cubs and Bò Bía Galore

It's as true today as it was in the 1960s: to experience Saigon life, head to the streets.

In this collection of old photos, shutterbug Rick Parker took a special interest in the daily lives of Saigon's residents. From a family of four squished together on a red Honda Cub to cheery ladies selling cut fruit on the street, Saigon in the late 60s – rendered in the distinctive under-saturation of film – appears as an idyllic paradise in these snapshots.

Take a stroll down Saigon’s streets circa 1966-1967 through the photos below:
