We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Crime rates in Vietnam are relatively low compared to other countries in the region, and certain types of violent crime are comparatively rare. The main concern for travelers is scams and petty theft, although more serious offenses such as pickpocketing, fraud, and bag snatching are becoming increasingly common. In general, travelers should practice common sense and vigilance when exploring the country to ensure their safety," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Vietnam.
