Is it safe to travel to vietnam

Many People asked me: Is it safe to travel to Vietnam? Well, Vietnam is an extremely safe country for travel. Here, rules and regulations are very tight and the police find a very rare case regarding robberies or mugging or sexual assaults.  Though hassles and scams still exist particularly in HCMC, Hanoi, and Nha Trang.  You should care more while you are going to travel with two-wheeler on the Vietnam roads here traffic accident is higher and worst case as well.

You can fine Undetonated Explosives in Many Places

For more than three decades, four armies expended untold energy and resources mining rocketing, booby-trapping, mortaring, and strafing and bombarding wide areas of Vietnam. When the fighting stopped, most of this detritus remained exactly where it had landed or been laid; American estimates at the end of the war placed the quantity of unexploded ordnance (UXO) at 150,000 tonnes.

By the leftover Ordnance, since 1975, more than 40,000 Vietnamese have been killed or maimed. The central provinces are particularly badly affected, with more than 8000 incidents in Quang Tri alone.

While well-traveled rural roads, cultivated areas, and cities and paths are safe to travel staying in these areas may be land you in a danger zone. Never touch any, mortars, mines rockets, artillery shells while you are traveling in Vietnam that area. Such objects can remain lethal for decades. And don’t climb inside bomb craters – you never know what undetonated explosive device is at the bottom.

You can learn more about the issue of landmines from the Nobel Peace Prize-winning International Campaign to Ban Landmines (, or visit websites of the Mines Advisory Group, which clears landmines and UXO.
