VIETNAM #233

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Here are some photos about the traffic madness in Saigon. There is a constant flow of motorbikes in the busy streets of Saigon making going across the road quite an adventure. Nowadays, there are more cars than few years ago which makes crossing the road even more scary then before.

There are very few traffic lights so at one point you have to pluck up your courage, step down on the road and walk slowly across. The bikes go around you and you get to the other unscathed.

********************************

This is the end of the photos from my 2013 trip to Vietnam. Another trip to North East Vietnam is being planned for the end of the Summer 2015.

A new series to a remote destination will start soon.

Thank you to those of you who followed the Vietnam series since the end of April last year.

A well caught image. It vividly recalls our trip there in 2012.

Great photo, soo reminiscent of Asia. Does remind of my wife's home country the Philippines where you also take your life in your hands crossing the road!

An incredible collection, Jean-Noel!
I bet the accident rate is surprisingly low.
Probably due to fact that all of these road users are astutely aware of everyone else.
I'm sure it's down to trusting others and holding your nerve!!
