I've never been to Vietnam, but this article really piques my curiosity about its sidewalk culture. I wonder how it differs from other Asian countries, and what makes it so unique and special?

I love all the micro-shops and mini markets that are everywhere. And it is true, everyone is so friendly. I can't tell you how welcomed I felt being there. I actually felt more at home there than where I live. People around where I live can be cold.

I'm impressed by the sense of community that's fostered through Vietnam's sidewalk culture. It's heartwarming to see neighbors come together to socialize and share meals on the streets.

I'm blown away by the creativity and resourcefulness of the Vietnamese people when it comes to making the most of their sidewalks. From makeshift kitchens to impromptu markets, it's clear that they've found a way to turn these public spaces into vibrant hubs of activity. It's really inspiring to see!

I like the way you can just take a bike ride or a walk and see so many fascinating little places to shop from. From food to flowers, gifts, and even used goods. It is a lot of fun!

There was this strip, just a small section on a street that had a few shops and a cafe and it was a lot of fun getting some coffee and then browsing he neighboring shops.

Reading this article brought back memories of my own trip to Vietnam. The sidewalk culture is definitely something that stood out to me. I remember sitting on a tiny plastic stool, enjoying a delicious bowl of pho, and watching the world go by. It was a magical experience.

It is true that the sidewalks are mesmerizing, especially in Hanoi, between the small market, the women selling all kinds of good, the street restaurants and the small crafts : key makers, bicycle repairmen, hairdressers (they just hang a mirror on a street wall), etc.
