Crossing the Street in Vietnam & Vietnam Communication

Crossing the Street in Vietnam
Crossing the street in Hanoi or Saigon, or any other city in Vietnam can be an daunting. The traffic is maddening and chaotic, there seems to be no traffic rules, and there is not a working cross-walk in the country. To help you cope with the action of crossing the street safely, here are a few tips that we picked up along the way:
Don't look both ways. In fact, it's better if you don't look at all, lest you lose your nerve. It is also a mistake to focus on the oncoming traffic. If you make eye contact with other road users, you automatically forfeit the right of way.
Don't hesitate. Waiting for a lull in traffic is hopeless, so if you want to get across, just go. And, when you're in the middle of the street, don't stop, keep going. Know that traffic will adjust to you.
Don't run! If anything is going to get you killed in Vietnam, it's attempting to run across the street. Take it slow, walk in a straight line, keep a steady pace, and traffic will flow smoothly around you.
Crossing the street in Vietnam is anything but pedestrian. But if you approach the problem with a healthy dose of newfound confidence you should live to tell the story.


Vietnam Communications
International phone charges are steep in Vietnam and many hotels, especially up-market ones, add extra fees. It is however very easy to pick up a SIM card virtually anywhere in Vietnam. Be sure to unlock your phone before you come or you will find that the SIM card won't work. Many SIM cards are also 3G.
Faxes can be sent from hotels, business centers and post offices. Again, rates vary. To rent a mobile phone call 821-8465 in Hanoi or 824-2382 in Ho Chi Minh City.
A suggestion for making international calls is to log onto or sign up for an internet phone provider, like skype, before leaving home. There are also ones that have been recently set up in Vietnam.
Email and internet is readily available in almost every hotel. Although, a times it can be a little temperamental as the servers tend to be overloaded.
