  • Don’t flash valuables and cash of leave them lying around .
  • Be careful going out alone after dark in areas that you don’t know . As in any country there is an added risk when you are alone ,especially when it is obvious that you are a tuorist.
  • Don’t leave your drinks unattended or accept drinks from strangers .
  • If you are interding on getting incredibly drunk then make sure you are with people you trust who can get you home sefely . Drunken tuorists are exceptionnally vulnerable .
  • Do Not Buy or Take Drugs . Not only because they affer your judgment but also because there is a high chance that the people you buy the drugs off will immediately tip off the police and get a reward for doing so . Needless to say ,you don’t want a spell in a Vietnamese prison.
  • Trust your instincts ,if something feels wrong then leave the situation as quickly and calmly as you can.
  • Practice safe sex (regardless of whether your partner is a fellow tuorist of a local vietnamses person). Prostitution is illegal and considered a very serious crime in Vietnam.
