Roads in Vietnam are very strange if you come from a western country and have never been in South-East-Asia before. Thousands of scooters and motorbikes thrust their way through the streets and at busy times also through the walkways. It is loud and the air smells of twin-stroke engines. Waiting for a gap to cross a street is almost hopeless. But if you have the courage to walk straight through the traffic, you will imagine the traffic flowing around you like a shoal. Walking through the traffic would be deadly on German roads, but works almost perfect in Vietnam. It is fascinating to see how locals handle these chaotic flows on their roads.
