Crossing the street in Vietnam can be difficult sometimes, especially when it’s the first time you visit this country.
You should cross the road at places where there are signal lights, road markings, or overpasses and tunnels.
In case there are no signal lights, no road markings, overpasses, and tunnels for pedestrians, you should observe both sides of the road, listen to the sounds of cars, motorcycles, and think about the time.
You need to look left to avoid the vehicles, go straight to the middle of the road, turn to look right to avoid motor vehicles from the right-hand direction.
Currency conversion & Places to exchange money
When visiting Vietnam, you don’t need to exchange VND at your home town, because you can get a better rate in Vietnam.
Most banks are now licensed to buy and sell foreign currencies.
However, the procedure can be complicated, so you should exchange your money at gold shops instead.
