7 Million scooters = brisk business for helmetsThis is one of many, many headgear shops. The population of Saigon (yes, even many of the natives still refer to Ho Chi Minh City as Saigon) is rapidly approaching 9 million people and their main transportation is the scooter and most wear helmets. Talk about a niche market!
Fortunately, there are separate lanes for scooters in the city. Even so, crossing the street is perhaps the most adventurous, adrenaline producing sport one can do here.
