Hanoi Warnings and Dangers: 98 reviews and 77 photos


It will be scary and a culture shock to cross the road of Hanoi as there may not be any traffic lights found on those busy streets.

Even if there is a traffic light no motorist really obeys them (except at government buildings areas).

Please be very careful not to dash across the road.

Take the 1st baby step by placing one of your feet off the pavement and onto the road. Just cross and the motorist will avoid you. Do not hesitate or take a step back. All the motorist are very skillful and will horn at you.

The best way to cross the road is to follow behind the locals.

The cars are left hand drive.
