    Is Vietnam a safe destination to travel to?


    A popular stop-off on the well-trodden traveller routes of Southeast Asia, Vietnam is an intriguing and enthralling place, which boasts everything from peaceful ancient temples to buzzing cities. If you’re planning a trip abroad or you’re wondering about including Vietnam in your round the world itinerary, here is some information, which may help you to reduce the risk of travel accidents:

    Is Vietnam safe?

    Like every country in the world, Vietnam poses some risks for travellers, but it is generally considered to be a safe destination for tourists and it attracts large numbers of visitors from all over the world. Vietnam is generally very popular with young travellers looking to explore the world after school or university and you will find lots of budget accommodation options and low cost tours, as well as a host of luxury hotels, modern shopping malls and cosmopolitan bars and restaurants, which are aimed at the more discerning visitor. If you’re thinking of visiting Vietnam, here are some tips to help you stay out of trouble:

    • Be wary of taxi scams: Taxi scams are fairly common, especially when it comes to tourists, who tend to be an easy target. Arrange for a hotel transfer from the airport, rather than flagging a cab at the airport, as they are likely to charge you over the odds and don’t be afraid to ask a cab driver to pull over and get out if you think they are taking you the wrong way.
    • Be careful when hiring bikes and mopeds: Bikes are a good way of seeing the crowded and bustling streets of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, but they can be very dangerous, especially if you’re not an experienced driver. If you’re unsure where you’re going and it’s very busy on the roads, take a taxi to reduce your risk of sustaining travel injuries in a road accident abroad.
    • Go steady on nights out: Vietnam’s main cities and traveller resorts boast a lively night scene, but it pays to go steady and drink in moderation, as there are curfews in place and bars often get closed down by police. If you are out, make sure you leave valuables at your hotel and don’t take a lot of cash with you.
