Lady travelling alone in Ho Chi Minh (THE SAFE TIPS)

Tips for Solo Travel

Buying things in the market

Ben Thanh Market is one of the most exciting places to visit in Ho Chi Minh City. It’s a chance to truly get stuck in with the locals and test your bargaining skills.

Some Tips To “Survive” In Ben Thanh Market

Do not leave money or valuables in your hotel/hostel

Always keep laptop, camera, cash and so on…on your person. Better safe than sorry.

Do not carry any valuables in an opened pocket

Suddenly, an unknown person approached and bumped into you and you think that is a very normal thing because the street is very crowded and bustling until…you realize your belongings took wing.

Let’s smile

Until now, I do not have many opportunities to travel to broaden my horizons but I know for a fact that you would always find numerous big smiles on the welcoming locals’ faces. Let’s smile because not only make this life more beautiful, but also bring you to become closer to others.

Socializing with the locals

 If you head towards Bui Vien Walking Street on the weekend, you would see that Vietnamese people sit on one side and foreign tourists would on the other side. One street but has two different worlds. If you want to find out why the majority of women in Vietnam desire to have a fair skin, how to say “cheers” in this country and leave Vietnam with a head full of memorable experiences…so let’s join with us, it would be “wicked” awesome.

Be careful when traveling by taxi

Taxi scam is quite popular in Vietnam and such a real concern for many tourists. Some taxi drivers could rip you off and charge you at a very high price. They might choose a longer path or go around to maximize the price on the meter.

In this case, you should be careful when you get into a taxi. Only choose reliable taxi brands such as Mai Linh, Vinasun. If possible, let’s take some pictures of the taxi’s plate or the meter and confirm to the driver about the shortest path to your destination (We highly suggest you to use Google Map). Last but not least, make sure you have arrived at the right destination before paying and getting off the car. Nowaday, Grab (like Uber) is very popular, you can use it also.
