For Safe and Secure Vietnam Tourism: 9 Points to Know!
1. When crossing the road:
Check the left and right carefully and always follow the pedestrian crossing. If you do not have a pedestrian crossing, you need to cross the road slowly, but if you step by step you will avoid the bike.
2. Bags, valuables, etc:
Keep it in the front pocket for easy management. Don’t look at your phone on the road or while riding a bike to avoid robbery.
3. Vietnamese banknotes:
Average exchange rate 1 yen = 200 Vietnamese Dong. Remember the color of each currency so the trick does not get lost.
4. Seasonal clothing items:
It is always hot in Sai Gon, so what you should bring is summer items. If you travel in Northern Vietnam in the winter, it will be very cold, then thick clothes are the best choices. Check the weather forecast before you leave as well as bring an umbrella and sandals in case it will rain. Consider wearing appropriate clothes when visiting local houses and pagodas or temples.
You can use technology taxi services, such as GoViet or Grab. You will be informed of the exact amount to pay before agreeing to make the trip. If you want a regular taxi, choose big reputable companies. Try to avoid unbranded or private taxis.
6. Drinking water:
Do not drink directly from the tap.
7. At least six-month validity passport:
You need to make sure your passport is valid for 6 months after you arrive in Vietnam. The Customs officers in Vietnam are very strict about this.
8. Buying a phone SIM when you arrive:
If you use a SIM phone, you can install a Vietnamese SIM to use. Sims can be purchased at the airport or outside.
