One of the most popular places in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, to pose for social media is a narrow street lined with homes and cafes. This is no ordinary street: This is the place where the famous Hanoi street train passes through the city.

For years, tourists have been arriving in droves to watch the train barrel dangerously close to the street, while they sit at nearby tables, sipping tea and coffee. There were also cafes above street level, so that diners could eat lunch overlooking the train as it passed through the street – making all the windows and tables shake.
