If you’ve been to Ho Chi Minh City, you know that crossing the street is risky business. It’s a city that doesn’t pay a whole lot of attention to traffic laws, and there’s so much traffic that it rarely stops long enough for you to cross.

The solution? Cross anyway. As one resident told me, the rule is to first make sure there aren’t any trucks coming or anything that wouldn’t be able to swerve around you, and then, always keeping your eyes on the traffic, just walk out into it, keeping a slow and steady pace.

As long as you pay attention, the traffic — which mostly consists of small motorbikes anyway — will graciously swerve around you, and might not kill you right there in the middle of the street. It’s not remotely safe, but it does give Ho Chi Minh City the charming distinction of being the town where just crossing the street is an adventure.
