Tips and advice to help you stay safe during your trip
By international standards, Vietnam is a safe country with low rates of street crime and violence. Use this general guide to help you maximise your personal safety during your trip.
Most of these tips are common sense, and you probably practise them in your own country, but they can make a real difference.
In an emergency that requires ambulance, police or fire services dial 114 from any telephone. In the case of a non-emergency crime you should contact your local police station.
We strongly advise that you take out adequate insurance before you leave to cover you for any health and medical issues, and also for theft or damage to your belongings.
