Roundabout in Downtown Hanoi, Vietnam

Roundabout in Downtown Hanoi, Vietnam

Today’s travel photo is of the roundabout at the northern end of Hoan Kiem Lake in downtown Hanoi, Vietnam. If you’re wandering around the Old Quarter in Hanoi, you are bound to find yourself at this busy roundabout from time to time. In this photo, I somehow captured the most quiet moment that I had ever seen at this roundabout. Most of the time, particularly in the late afternoon, this is just chaos. Crossing the road here is a lot of fun…it’s kind of like a game of Frogger; you have to just walk out into the traffic, find the gaps and hope that no one is going to run you over. It might be scary, but that’s the way it is in any big city in Vietnam. It’s best just to accept it and enjoy yourself 🙂
