Travel To Saigon, Vietnam

By Jose Maurette Garces

Whenever you go and travel somewhere there are always going to be dangers lurking around every corner, and as such it is best to remain savy and in control at all times. When you are away from your home town and country and are not familiar with the customs of a new country it is important that you do not get caught out. As such here are three tops tips on staying safe if you travel to Ho Chi Ming city in Vietnam.

The first danger is something of a double pronged affair and this is something that the locals will tell you about if you ask about what sort of situations to avoid as a tourist. Down at the waterfront you will commonly get large groups of young people on their motorbikes cruising around. Whilst they do not necessarily mean harm to tourists they can be quite wild and travel in large packs.

You should also remember that motorbike taxis are also something that can be very dangerous. You may see some people with large grazes on their bodies and these are those who got away lightly. When you travel on the back of a motorbike taxi make sure that they give you a helmet or do not get on at all.

The second main thing that you have to think about will be the level of safety that you have in your hotel. This will not be about you personal safety but that of your belongings being stolen. This will vary massively from place to place but it is always a good idea to put your valuables into a safe that the hotel have behind the reception desk when you leave the hotel for the day.

The last place to be wary of is certainly somewhere where you could be injured and this is when doing something as simple as crossing the road. The streets in the city are so busy that often finding somewhere to cross safely can be a nightmare. As such you should look to keep an eye on the local and study their tricks. Most will simply gently get in front of the traffic and keep going as the cars drive round them.

These are 3 top safety tips when travelling to Ho Chi Ming.
