Traffic in Vietnam can be chaotic, and visitors should be cautious when crossing the street. Take heed from the locals and learn a tip of two about how they avoid oncoming motorbikes, tuk tuks and cars.

Vietnamese street food is world-renowned and definitely worth trying during your time in the country. However, it’s important to be cautious about consuming street food which can lead to food poisoning.

Try to visit stalls that look clean, and where the food is cooked fresh in front of you. If possible, avoid eating raw vegetables and fruits to ensure that any bacteria is safely removed through proper cooking.
