1.0 Traveling in Vietnam
We get it. It is scary when you travel alone. Especially when you go to a country you know nothing about, but you do not have to worry about anything when it comes to Vietnam!
Yes, it's safe...
Vietnam is a relatively safe country to travel, even for women traveling alone. Many travelers are pleasantly surprised by their experiences in Vietnam concerning crime and personal safety. Nevertheless, there is still an increase when it comes to minor crimes. If you know them and know how to prevent them, the chance of becoming a victim is small.
Don't feel paranoid
However, do not feel paranoid after reading the crimes. The criminal level is far behind Western countries and violent crimes against tourists are rare. If something happens, report it to the nearest police station. This is necessary for your insurance.
