Rush Hour Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Series are episodes I'm presenting on the channel that highlight everyday life for the people of HCMC and how they make it through the traffic daily. We'll go to some of the most congested spots in the city so you can see how beyond the initial look of chaos it all seems to function. There are currently an estimated 8.5 million motorbikes in HCMC but the number could even be higher. As the city builds more infrastructure to help keep up with the growth commuters somehow continue to deal with the congestion, sometimes flooding, air pollution, among other things in an effort to improve the overall quality of their life. It's truly remarkable how entrepreneurs have founds ways to help accommodate bike commuters with food carts, markets, and other services you'll see in this series that help keeps the traffic moving. Thanks so much for watching! Any suggestions for interesting traffic spots we should highlight in this series are welcome! *I often get asked what camera or cameras do I use.* I currently use a DJI Osmo Pocket camera and an insta360 One R Twin Edition camera set that includes a dual lens 360 camera I use for drone like shots and other effect shots and a 4K wide angle action camera. If you use the following link to purchase an insta360 One R camera you can get either a free selfie stick or battery with the code in the link. I do receive a small commission if you use this link:
