I was relaxing at my favorite cafe watching the scene in the neighborhood square when this car pulled up and stopped.
It seemed as if the driver was looking for a place to park, but there isn't any place to park cars here or in most neighborhoods of TP. Hồ Chí Minh. The car then moved on. There are plenty of spaces for motorbike parking parking in the middle of the square, however. Where there isn't a square for parking, motorbikes are parked by an attendant on the sidewalk in front of the cafe or business.
Even though you take the bike key with you, the business attendant is responsible the the security of the bike when parked at the business. You are given a numbered tag that must match the number chalked on the bike seat when you return.
At home, motorbikes are parked inside on the ground floor (usually the sitting room or house business). As more and more people buy cars however, they also park the car inside the house.
You can tell that this homeowner parks a car inside using the ramps on each side of the usual motorbike ramp in the center. Can you imagine an SUV parked in your living room?
Otherwise new car owners have to find off-street parking elsewhere in the neighborhood wherever land owners with extra space rent out parking spaces.
Sites like this one are now prime building sites for new development, however, so this solution is short-term.
