Ho Chi Minh (Part 2)

AFTER SEVERAL HOURS SHOPPING in the Ben Than Market, it was already evening... time to walk back to the hotel to rest for awhile and then adjourned for dinner... While walking back, all of us started to snap pictures about the traffic jam over there... I really must salute the drivers in Vietnam, really must honour them...

There are 3 million motorcylists 300,000 cars in Ho Chi Minh City, so it seems....cant imagine how they drive round the city.. we being the pedestrians do not get abused by them when we crossed the roads, no doubt they keep horning at each other but then no flying fingers or abusive words come out from them... fantastic drivers...











see our treasures?? haha..very happy lot ...

now i wonder how we managed to cross all those roads... anyway, peace unto u all..

  8. Very chaotic traffic right! When my friend crossed the road, she kept screaming haha, she said the best is to close the eyes and cross! It's always so stressful to cross the roads, and the place is very polluted. However, despite the unlawful traffic, we didn't see any accidents at all!

    And wow! You people must have enjoyed yourselves shopping! I can see "da bao xiao bao"! :D
