Vietnam has made amazing progress over the past 20 years as the country adopted a more market-oriented economy.  Unfortunately, its infrastructure has not always kept up with the growth.

Many visitors to Hanoi are shocked to see how archaic the electrical infrastructure is.  Electrical wires run everywhere and sometimes look like spaghetti.  By western standards, they appear quite unsafe.
