Rumble / Railway DangerIt’s time to sit down and dedicate this few minutes to this amazing video taken in Hanoi, Vietnam. It’s something you don’t see every day! In this incredible video is captured a train incredibly passing through a tine street in Hanoi.

Imagine a train going in both directions every day outside your house and you have grown nonchalant about it! It's amazing to see how the locals here in Hanoi, Vietnam have adapted to this daily disruption in their lives. This is something truly remarkable! Because we were so fascinated by this amazing video we did a little research about the routine the train does.

Around 3 p.m. and 7 p.m every day, a train hurtles through a series of narrow streets in Hanoi’s bustling, maze-like Old Quarter. Streets are getting blocked, children rushered indoors, cars and bikes pulled to the side of the road just before the train speeds past, with a couple feet of clearance at most on both sides. You can see on the video that the train is mere inches from the buildings.

The railroad tracks take up nearly the entirety of the “train street,” as it’s been dubbed by the increasing trickle of tourists that come to glimpse the startling sight. The train passes the narrow road early in the route that connects Vietnam’s capital to Ho Chi Minh city in the south.

If you ever have a chance to visit Vietnam, make sure to visit this amazing street at 3 p.m or 7 p.m.
