In the recent years, petty crimes and scams have been increasing in the popular tourist spots, associated with the growth of foreign visitors.
Such crimes are common, especially in major cities such as Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
So, be on the alert to petty thief, pick-pocket, or purse snatching while you're in the crowded tourist-oriented areas.
The safety and security of guest rooms in quality hotels is adequate.

Be careful while crossing the street and driving/riding in traffic because the road system is underdeveloped and traffic rules are sometimes ignored.
Take only metered or marked taxis while out late at night. Take a new ride if the driver is drunk.
