Handy tips for Vietnam safety travel
Knowing handy tips to travel “safe and sound” in Vietnam should be on your must-to-check before arriving in this beautiful land.
According to the Report of 2017 Competitiveness Index in Travel & Tourism by World Economic Forum, the “Pho” nation ranked the 57th among 136 countries in the category Travel Safety Index by nation. This was because there is hardly a possibility of terrorism acts in the country. Vietnam is a relatively safe country for visitors, including solo female travelers. In fact, given the country’s recent history, many tourists, particularly Americans, are pleasantly surprised at the unexpectedly warm welcome from locals. That said, petty crime is on the rise – though it’s still relatively small–scale and shouldn’t be a problem if you take common–sense precautions. Generally, the hassles you’ll encounter will be the milder sort of coping with pushy vendors and over–enthusiastic touts and beggars.
Below are some travel safety tips you would like to know before coming to this culture-rich country.
Prepare yourself to be approached by vendors and scammers
Bargain, bargain and bargain please, but do not over-argue
Don’t mess with Vietnam Dong
If you don’t want to try driving a motorbike, do not try
Make sure your food is well boiled
But they are still not included cleanness. They are healthy – YES – very healthy because this country doesn’t offer you a fast food culture. Don’t try yourself to eat like a local way sometimes as your stomach might be in trouble. The locals get used to it. So small tip here is when you want to try a new dish, please make sure the main ingredients are clean and boiled. Ask the seller to re-boil if you are unsure, they will do it with a smile on their face, don’t worry.
Keep valuable things with you
Dress neatly and bring along a water bottle when being out
Talk to other travelers
Above all, please stay in your mind that this is Vietnam, a developing country, and things don’t quite work as you are may get used to. Don’t be paranoid about your safety, be aware of your surroundings and proactive about your own safety. Just go with the flow and enjoy your journey with a focus.
