Notes for foreign visitors when participating in traffic in Vietnam

One of the special features that make up Vietnam is transportation in Vietnam. In fact, the traffic in Vietnam is quite messy compared to other countries. This makes visitors coming to Vietnam both nervous, excited, impressed and worried and afraid. People participating in traffic in Vietnam almost do not follow any laws. You will easily see a person crossing a red light, running in the opposite direction or running on a curb. For foreigners, these images will certainly be appalling when they first join the traffic in Vietnam.

Here are some notes for you when you take traffic on the street during a trip to the beautiful S-shaped country.

1 - Be slow if you ride a motorbike

If you want a fun and practical experience with getting involved in motorbike traffic, slow down and make sure you master your speed. Participating in traffic in Vietnam is very confusing, so when you see someone running a high-speed bike, don't follow them. Because most Vietnamese people are used to dealing with unexpected situations that happen everyday when traffic. If you are a foreigner, you are only exposed to the traffic environment and culture here, so do not drive at a high speed because you will surely be in trouble when you cannot handle unexpected situations.

2 - Don't run when you cross the road

If you cross the street, don't see the chaotic traffic that runs quickly across the road, it will be dangerous.The driver will not be able to react quickly if you run across the road too quickly. Walk slowly. Others will avoid you.

3 - Don't step back when crossing the road

Go forward steadily forward, don't back up suddenly when you cross the road. Traffic by motorbike is much different from traffic by car. Motorcyclists may be unexpectedly flickering. Therefore, do not retreat suddenly when crossing the road because it is easy to get into an accident. The driver will not handle it.

4 - Observe carefully before crossing the road

Although Vietnamese people also stop red lights, give way when they are in traffic, but look closely around them before crossing the road or participating in traffic. Because there are always people who don't obey traffic rules. Be careful to walk slowly and watch out for traffic when you want to move across the road.
