Crime levels are low in Vietnam and you need not have any major
concerns about wandering the streets at night. The only significant risk
entails bag-snatchers and pickpockets. I’ve heard many tales about
thieves on motorbikes whereby two guys on a bike approach you from
behind and one of them grabs the strap of anything you are carrying over
your shoulder – so be wary of that.
The pickpockets to be wary of
also approach you on a motorbike but they tend to be women flaunting
their charms. A group of them might pull up to you and start groping you
in an intimate fashion; the next thing you know they’re darting off
with all your valuables in their possession!
Street Food in Vietnam is excellent.
Corruption exists just as it does elsewhere, but you will get the
impression that it is completely absent. Unlike Thailand, where police

westerners tend to like is not as wide as in some Asian countries.
you have already tried Vietnamese food that was prepared in a different
country, and been unimpressed by it, you may well find that the
home-produced variety is much better. Vietnamese girls are almost
universally skilled at cooking and, early in your relationship, you’ll
no doubt be invited to some home-cooked delights. If that invitation
entails meeting her parents then you should accept it; meeting the
parents has all the same implications in Vietnam as it does in Thailand

find a country with friendly people and stunningly beautiful scenery
that can rival any of the most beautiful scenic destinations in Asia.
