If you've ever been to Southeast Asia, you'll recognize it. The ice cream merchant's little music is the most famous and best peddled melody in this part of the world... From Indonesia to Vietnam, from Thailand to Malaysia, it can be heard everywhere!

I can not resist the pleasure of introducing you to the ice cream shop in Gapang Beach, Pulau Weh.

He often shows up strategically in the late afternoon, when the kids hang out on the beach and when the divers have finished rinsing and storing their stuff ...

Success guaranteed.

  1. Cool! 😀 I didn't think I'd ever seen these ice cream vendors during my time in Indonesia, but seeing your video made me remember seeing this, but in a boat version! I think it was on the Bangka side.
    Anyway, thanks, and double thanks for the little music, very "catchy", I think I'll have it in my head all day! 🙄

  2. hello, I'm Southeast Asia 8) too and the little music of the ice cream vendor is worthy of the madeleine Proust, congratulations for this blog, I click everywhere since I discovered it!

  3. @ Hélène from Mauritius: You're welcome ! I fell back on the sequences by sorting my photos last night ... and suddenly, I did not resist the pleasure of riding in the wake, so I was happy to see them again. Delighted that you liked it too!

    @Malene: If you'll see, by dint of dragging in Southeast Asia, inevitably, you will fall on the heady little tune of the ice cream ... The worst is when you start to hum in spite of yourself.

    @nensee: Yes, that's it: a madeleine Proust !!! Welcome to my Little Bubbles Elsewhere, then, and a good click-and-click ride ...

  4. The ice cream man, a usual image in my city! Very interesting video 😉 I hope to read your next articles about Vietnam soon 🙂 Good luck 🙂
