A decade ago Vietnam was barely on the tourist map, a result of 20years of self imposed exile to the world following the war. However, with the development of trade and the vast improvement in the tourist infrastructure it is now fast becoming a very popular destination.

However, it has very strict laws on harming a foreigner in the country so there are few crimes where travellers will be physically harmed.
