INTERVIEW VIETNAMESE | TRAFFIC JAM | KẸT XE | LEARN VIETNAMESE WITH SVFF

Vietnam’s traffic jams only take place regularly in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. People in Vietnam seem to be used to traffic congestion, and even skip it if they go elsewhere.

There is no fixed rule for the time the traffic jams to happen but it is worst during the rush hour when everyone is in a hurry to get to work or come back home. Apart from peak hours, the time between 9 am to 10 am and between 3 pm to 4 pm also witnesses long lines of vehicles, mainly motorbikes, struggling to get out of narrow streets. Whenever it rains, the traffic jam gets more terrible with the joining hand of flooding. Taxis are extremely hard to catch or wave during the downpour. However, it only takes about 30 minutes on average for a standstill and 2 hours to get through the worst, not really bad compared to that of other countries.
