Pretty much the worst road ever. Just yesterday I was forced to make a quick sojourn down its marked, manic stretch and witnessed one of the worst accidents I have yet scene in our fair capital. Blood, carnage and vehicle parts everywhere. Both lanes had stopped entirely and people had actually gotten off their motorbikes and out of their cars to watch the poor man bleed out onto the pavement. A fine, fine scene.

Obviously accidents happen everywhere, but Sartre had it wrong: this road is hell, and such events only further illustrate this belief, time and again.

Dusty, noisy, crowded and too many holes on the road, these words are for Truong Chinh road. Yes, riding on Truong Chinh is a battle.
Please don't be so upset, because its name means "long march". Please follow the link to know more about Long March:

You've just chosen the right way to feel how hard the revolutionary soldiers had to do.

This would rate as one of the worst roads to travel on in Hanoi, it could be a tight battle between De La Thanh, but I’ve tangled more so with Truong Chinh. Having first moved here I lived down on Nguyen Trai and worked over on Giai Phong, a mere 2km drive, “easy” I thought. Easy had I been wearing a gas mask, brought a book along, perhaps a portaloo and a few hours more patience.

During peak hours, this road is no fun in both directions. While commuting on your way to work, you would have time to go visit the Air Force museum (which is ok I hear, if aircraft are your thing), because otherwise you will slug along one small wheel rotation at a time. On the very worst occasion this small stretch of road took me almost 2 hours, due to a heavy morning downpour which once subsided resulted in traffic chaos.

I’d suggest new hanoians to choose their housing carefully, as putting this road between yourself and work/favourite pho joint/loved ones could result in the deterioration of what you hold dear, as you slowly descend into some form of expletive inducing maniac.

I have since moved, but if you insist on battling Duong Truong Chinh, i have heard of secret passages through the maze of alleys between nguyen trai and giai phong if you are brave enough (although most never make it out), or alternatively drive up into Tay Son, turn right and head back down Le Duan, or walk and laugh at the traffic, while you slowly die in their fumes. Best of luck.
