The art of crossing road in Vietnam

I’ve always heard about how scary it is to cross the road in Vietnam. You really need skill and lots of guts. Recently, I discovered that there’s actually quite a number of Youtube video documenting this phenomenon. You can try searching for “crossing vietnam” or “crossing Hanoi”. You’ll be amazed by the number of videos on this.

I’m so glad I live in a country where motorist obey pedestrian crossings sign.

I’ve never been to Vietnam. But I heard from friends that in order to cross the road in Vietnam, you just need to walk across slowly. Don’t make any sudden movements. The motorbikes will find a way to go pass you. Having lots of guts helps too.

Have you been to Vietnam? How do you cross the roads there?

    cool that people actually do videos of this! I was there some years back… took a while to pick up my guts and just do it.

    Here’s a tip: For your first time, stick close to other viets and cross when they do :)
