Safety Precautions When Traveling in Vietnam

According to Canadian government site travel.gc.ca (last updated in November 2019), there are a few safety and security precautions visitors should consider in Vietnam:

  • Pay attention to safety at crowded tourist destinations to avoid pickpockets and basket snatching. Make sure that identification documents such as your passport and travel documents are always kept in a safe place.
  • For maximum safety, avoid motorbike taxis. Do not share taxis with strangers.
  • At the airport, choose reputable taxi companies or shuttle services provided by your accommodation. When possible, get driver information before your trip.

Avoid becoming a victim of gambling. This type of fraud usually starts with a friendly invitation to go to someone’s home who is interested in travelling or studying in Canada. While waiting, a few games will take place, and even though the starting stakes are low, many tourists have lost more than a thousand dollars in one afternoon.
