Ho Chi Minh City (previously Saigon) in Vietnam, and the rain is like standing under a power shower ! However, that's when it comes. There's plenty of dry times between the hard heavy showers, which tend to last an hour or two, and I found you had a few minutes warning before one starts, which is just enough time to find suitable shelter. Apparently there are 37 types of rain that you can experience in a monsoon shower, but it's all so wet, so just move out of the way ! By the way, the word "monsoon" was first used by the British in India. These are all taken from points of shelter during the storms, and feature the always prepared bikers who still zoom around in the heavy rain.
