Morning Rush Hour in Hanoi

Here is a short video clip to give you an idea of the morning rush hour in Hanoi. Take a look at this junction, and see if you can figure out the different traffic lanes and who (if anyone) has the right of way.

It seems like utter chaos, but somehow it works. And I can tell you that crossing the road as a pedestrian at these junctions is an experience.

    1. I did cross that junction. There’s a knack to it – same way that the bikes gradually force their way across. You just have to have eyes in the back of your head 🙂
