Downtown Saigon during Tet, outside the Inside the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica in Ho Chi Minh City
Tet and downtown in Saigon. In places the streets are a safety hazard with people packed in so tight that it's shoving room only for about a square kilometer downtown. It took me and my group about two hours to walk all the way through the crowd. IT would normally take us about 15 minutes to make that walk. Along the way I was nearly pickpocketed and we had to hold onto each other through the crowd to keep from losing any member of our group.

It is illegal to photograph the police in Vietnam but I don't think they mind so much in the case of traffic cops like this. I was "arrested" in Vietnam for driving the wrong way on a one-way street. It was scary but was also painless and I was treated with respect by the arresting officers. I had to pay a small fee before being released and was told that "It's ok because you drive careful."
