edited April 2014 in - Vietnam

Things to remember:

It's in your best interests not to drink the tap water, especially after flooding!

Avoid cyclo rides after dark.

Dress modestly and appropriately when visiting local dwellings and religious sites, etc.

Leave your valuables behind before a night out on the town, or going to the beach.

When crossing the road – especially in HCMC – always keep looking to the left and right and walk slowly!

 Don't offer money directly to minority people – instead donate to a local charity or offer a small gift, such as pens.
