Cross the Street with a Local
Last Thursday’s tip was about not relying on the person in front of you when crossing the street, especially in cities like New York, where locals are almost always in a hurry and often take chances by jaywalking. However, in cities like Bangkok or Ho Chi Minh City, where traffic is a completely different animal, it’s best to cross the street with a local (stand as close to them as possible) as they know exactly how their systems work. Watch this video on how crazy the traffic is in Ho Chi Minh City to see what I’m talking about.
