    Be aware that Indochina has some very virulent Sexually Transmitted Diseases which will give you a memento that lasts a long time and costs a lot to cure. SaiGon/Ho Chi Minh City ís a hot spot!

    Theft risk ís high (especially if the female chooses the accommodation-beware pimps); weapons of choice are knives and “funny” drinks. Hide your high value money in an unusual place in your clothing.

    Make a note of the number of any motorcycle used and take a photo ò you and the girl together (for a memento!). (29 years living in VN)
