    Vietnam is safe. It can be very hot and humid, so cool, loose summer clothing. Mosquito protection with DEET is good. Check with the travel clinic with your itinerary for any areas with malaria risk. Enjoy! I was there a few years ago with husband and 18 month old daughter....:) over 8 years ago

    Mosquito is less at more star hotel, in Ho Chi Minh this is not an issue.

    I travelled as a solo female for 5 weeks back in 2002. I didn't ever feel unsafe on the streets etc, although did exercise the same level of caution I would in any big city (no dark lanes etc). Within a few days of arriving, I went on a the back of a motorbike about 50 kms down Hwy 1 from Hanoi and immediately regretted the decision. The roads are terrifying. After that, I took the train, rather than the buses on Hwy 1. As for mozzies, take malaria medication and good DEET spray. over 8 years ago

    Everything in your plan is alright Graham. I recommend going around hue city by bike or motorbike, it s very interesting and safety because there not many vehicle in Hue and the city is quite small to go around. Also, you can book some city tour by bike or motorbike in your hotel or travel agency in Hue.
