Ho Chi Minh Safety


by @wlavell |  | 4 comments

I am considering moving to Ho chi Minh to work on some projects for several months. I was all set to go until I was reading about the issues with bag snatching and reading blogs about getting robbed. I lived in manila and Iloilo for awhile and in the Philippines and had no issues but I was also younger and more care free.

It seems like a good place to get started. But could anyone comment on the issues with safety.
I just really need a good cheap place where I can be really productive for 6-9 weeks and really take my programming skills to the next level. I was hoping I could do that in ho chi minh. But perhaps it is not suitable, I also donโ€™t feel like stressing out about my bag all day as well.

I did chiang mai this time last year and it was good but I also got bored after awhile. Would Da nang or hoi ann be less stressful in terms of bag snatching?
