Learn Vietnamese in ho Chi Minh City - Live in Vietnamese

 

Have you experienced this when living/travelling in Ho Chi Minh City?

Nobody walks anywhere in Vietnam if they don’t have to. Foreigners who actually profess a desire to stroll somewhere for fun are generally met with a mixture of incomprehension and disbelief from locals. This lacks of local camouflage and obvious economic factors make it very difficult to walk around town without being constantly assailed by taxi, cyclo and xe ôm drivers. 


If you’re still keen, DON’T expect to be able to work down street pavements in most Vietnamese town and cities: there are generally employed for parking cars, motorbikes, and bicycles, displaying wares for sale, cutting hair, playing chess, hanging out, etc. 

 

You will soon be forced to walk in the street and take your chances with the traffic.
