Insane POV footage of rush hour in Vietnam
If you're stressed from the traffic in your city, check out this ridiculous footage of a Honda Dream 110 darting through vehicles in Vietnam. Although the Vietnamese people are accustomed to this kind of mess, it's strange for everyone else, including us.
There is no fixed rule for the time the traffic jams start happening, but it is the worst during the rush hour when everyone is in a hurry to get to work or come back home. Apart from peak hours, the time between 9 am to 10 am and between 3 pm to 4 pm is also filled with long lines of vehicles, mainly motorbikes, struggling to get out of narrow streets.
When it rains, the traffic jam gets even more horrible with the joining effect of flooding. Taxis are extremely hard to catch or wave during the downpour. However, it only takes about 30 minutes on average for a standstill and 2 hours to get through the worst, which is not really bad compared to that of other countries.
Still, just by watching this video you can tell that if you are not a local, Vietnamese traffic would be a hellish, confusing nightmare for you. Utter chaos, don't you think?
