i usually just ride between d7 and d1. but there were times i have ridden to Long An province, where i work. around 1 hour by bike. it was also when i was caught by police paid twice, once 200k once 400k.
The reason i only ride in D2 due to lesser traffic.
Also that vietnam is left hand drive i keep checking the right first instead of left, use to right hand drive road.

Not daring then travelling time need to add double liao..

Taxi driver also very fierce, swerve here and there just to gain one car length infront..

sometimes ride really will dulan. u see them cut your front without even checking. but this is normal to them.

there was once this mother with 2 kids cut my front and hit my mirror then she chua tio and gasped and stare at me like it's my fault.

in general it seems the one behind need to anticipate the one in front. doesn't matter if you're going in a straight line. the bike cut into your front also must siam. which actually is a bit stupid, cos if i siam i also not check then i siam into another bike then it causes a chain effect isn't it? bound to have accident at some point. which in turn explains the high accident rate in vietnam i guess...

first time i go those crowded roundabout also scared. but then again, it's like crossing the road, just that we're all on bikes. just slow down and look when is the right time to inch forward, when is the right time to stop and give way.

Haha... I do all these nonsense stuff too.. ride up the pavement, against traffic direction, back lanes and paying off the police when i was stopped at a road block. I also ride fast with my laoya bike and hit an old aunty who pushes her bike cart across the road when green! Paid her 70k when she disappeared and appeared after the collision, holding a big bag of panadol tablets.. 70k is about $4.
