    Hi,

    We've heard that it's now the flood season in Saigon. Is it safe to travel? We've heard quite a lot about deadly floods in Saigon.

    Thanks.

    I think you just like asking questions here on Travelfish.

    I 'googled' "flood Ho Chi Minh City" and the only articled revealed for 2009 was:

    http://www.chinapost.com.tw/asia/vietnam/2009/01/13/191780/High-tides.htm

    Looking historically, it showed (for example):

    http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/world-news/flash-flood-kills-four-in-vietnam_10047822.html

    http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/HAN107401.htm

    Both these events were far from Saigon, and the deaths were the result of some very silly actions.

    I'd have thought that if Saigon was a 'deadly' place, there would have been several such articles on the google list

    If you want to listen to fear issues by other people, I'm sure you've got enough brains to go and use google to make up your own mind.

    Cheers
