Flood season in Saigon now?

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:

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
