Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City

Regional Travel Advice
- Travellers arriving in Vietnam are advised to be careful with the type of transportation they use to travel from the airport to their destination. There have been reports of taxis charging extortionate amounts or diverting tourists away from their destination to cheap “hotels”. Visitors are encouraged to use a reliable pre booked service.- Foreign visitors have to register their presence with the local police. Individuals staying in hotels will have this done for them (be sure your passport is returned once it is taken for registration).- Travellers should dress conservatively when in public areas. Avoid shouting or getting into arguments with locals, as this is considered a grave insult and can lead to dangerous situations.
