Virtual tour of the infamous and notorious Trainstreet in Hanoi, stunning close-up views. Click here ▶ to see highlights and guide. (From Wiki)The traffic in Vietnamese cities is famously harrowing, motorbikes zooming perilously between cars. There is one street in Hanoi where traffic is not a problem: a small residential lane between Le Duan and Kham Thin near the Old Quarter. A high speed train hurtles between the buildings twice a day.Dominated by the tracks, the lane where the train runs is incredibly narrow. During most of the day, locals treat the tracks like they would any other street. Children play there, people bicycle over the wooden ties. But when they feel the rumbling of the engine, they jump back into their houses or press themselves flat against the walls of their homes.This is one of Hanoi’s more dangerous attractions, as the trains will not slow down, even if someone is on the tracks. While the train street is a photographer’s dream, visitors should do as the locals do and get out of the way when the train comes. The trains are scheduled every day at 3:30 pm and 7:30 pm, and they come from the south.Date recorded: November, 2019Weather: ☀️⛅☁️ 27C | 81F-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lets connect or support and receive updates of the travel places to be viewed in upcoming videos:Support me on【Paypal】https://www.paypal.me/WanderlustTVSupport me on【Patreon】https://www.patreon.com/Wander....lustTravelVideosFoll me on 【Instagram】https://www.instagram.com/wand....erlusttravelvideos/F me on 【Facebook】https://www.facebook.com/Wande....rlustTravelVideos/#W #Hanoi #HanoiTrainstreet------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Gear I use to record and edit videos (use links to receive discount and I receive a small commission): GoPro Hero 8 Blackhttps://amzn.to/37B9h8pGoPro Hero 7 Black (backup)https://amzn.to/2SDzmQaFeiyu G6 Gimbal Stabilizerhttps://amzn.to/2P6wqt7GoPro Karma Grip https://amzn.to/2SG9gMdZoom H4N Recorderhttps://amzn.to/325s7UfSandisk 1T Portable SSDhttps://amzn.to/3bQdngjRavPower Travel Routerhttps://amzn.to/39KxafbGoPro Accessoire Travel Kithttps://amzn.to/2SGaLu8Techsmarter 30000mah Power Bankhttps://amzn.to/38Iif54Improve your YouTube channel with TubeTubbyhttps://www.Tubebuddy.com/WTVAffiliatePromotion
