Before coming to Vietnam, a lot of visitors worry about Vietnam traffic in common. ” It is crazy” is feedback which was given by many travelers for a few years ago. But don’t worry.

Don’t be afraid of the crowed vehicle row. Just keep calm and go ahead. When you cross a road, especially in a central city, the traffic will crow anytime. Don’t rush. Step by step, you will cross the road without difficulty. Every vehicle will avoid you. Make sure that you don’t gaze at a phone or look at a beautiful girl at that time :)))

*Wearing a helmet when you are on the road

This is really important for you. To avoid any demise, this is not a bit of excessive advice. It will save for you and for others as well.

*Use markup when going out

*Compliance the traffic light rule

Some people joke with their friends that traffic in Vietnam is not like anywhere. You can see some people still keep going when the traffic light is red.

But be careful. They are risked, people. You shouldn’t do like them. Just keep calm. Slower but safer.

  • Public bus: the type of vehicle also is recommended if you want to go around Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh cities central. It is so much cheaper than a taxi or motorbike (estimated 7000 vnđ/ route).

Of course, the plane is the highest qualified vehicle. But as you know, you get which you pay for. There are some popular airlines in Vietnam.

  • Vietnam Airline: The fee is higher than others, but the service is good. The flight time is hardly changed. Not only meals are included in the flight fee but also 20kg as well. I would recommend this airline for the clients. You just need to pay more not too much, but the service is much better than the others.
  • Vietjet Air: This is the airline for anyone who wants to take a cheap fee. It is also a good choice if you don’t have a lot of luggage. But the reality is that this airline usually is delayed. It will be a big issue if you go travel with a fixed itinerary
  • Jet Star: As the same as Vietjet air, this airline has a good rate. The quality is not really better than the two airlines above. But recently, a lot of people trust this supplier.

There are some other vehicle types such as cyclo, bike, ….Most of that will have available if you book through a travel agency. If you need to book a private car, motorbike, biking tour or cyclo tour,…. choosing to Go Vietnam Travel is the best choice.
