What’s the best way to get around Ho Chi Minh City?
It may be scary at first, but the best way to travel is on motorbike taxis- you can even hire a driver for the whole day. If you want to explore the city yourself, you can also hire your own motorbike. Otherwise, walking is a good option as well, but be careful when crossing the street. It can be quite the feat for those not used to disorderly traffic.
