Exercise normal safety precautions

Is Travelling Around Vietnam Safe?

Vietnam is a relatively safe country, with many Australians receiving a warm reception from locals. However, there are several minor safety concerns that travellers should be aware of. With a bit of planning, precaution and common sense, your trip to the country can be smooth and incident-free.

  • Theft. One of the major safety concerns for all foreigners is petty theft. Pick-pockets and other petty thieves target tourists on the streets. To ensure you are not a victim, always exercise caution while walking on the streets and keep your jewellery, cash and valuable documents well hidden. Wearing flashy jewelry or carrying a bag with you could be unsafe especially in overcrowded streets. Be sure to lock your belongings in a safe or to always lock your hotel room to avoid getting robbed.
  • Pushy merchants. Be on the lookout for aggressive vendors. Although they pose little threat (they are just trying to sell you chewing gum fruit or other commodities), some travellers find this practice intrusive.
  • Scams. Scams are quite uncommon, though it helps to be sharp and attentive to your surroundings to avoid being ripped off.

Other than those few security concerns, the country is a safe destination, and you can have a lot of fun visiting and experiencing the many sites Vietnam has to offer.
