One of the best ways to check out Hanoi or Saigon is on foot. A leisurely stroll through Saigon’s District 1 or Hanoi’s 36 Streets is a great opportunity for photographers or street food enthusiasts. However, it can be a bit maddening when motorbikes are parked on the sidewalk and you have to share the road with vehicular traffic. Make sure you walk with purpose and be quick on your feet. Crossing the street is an art form and remember to commit and follow through.
