Motorcycle, Ho Chi Minh City: 26 reviews and 34 photos

by xuessium

For many first arrivals to HCMC, crossing the streets in HCMC is a most daunting frightening task as the flow of motorbikes never seems to stop....and they really never do (as nobody really cares about traffic rules). The trick is, WALK ACROSS SLOW AND WITH CONFIDENCE. Most of the drivers do not really bike fast, so they will steer clear of you. Traffic will just part aside around you. There's a mutual understanding between pedestrian and motor-bikers. Don't let the avalanche of motorbikes scare you.
