Posted from within Vietnam.

I was in a bicycle, my backpack in the basket in front of the bike.

When I was riding, two guys in a motorbike passed next to me and they took my backpack. I followed them.... but I didn't have a a chance with a bike.. too fast.

I lost important things.

Of course now I think ... "I'm so stupid, how can I bring my backpack in the basket of the bike"... But I didn't expect something like that. Nobody told me.

Of course I'm in a terrible mood now.. like a nightmare. I'm not enjoying the trip in this moment, and probably I'm not going to do it in the next days.

Somebody told me that there is a theft mafia here. They work on the street, beach, even in the hotels. So the best advice is, never ever leave your belongings out of your hands.

Please take care.

Exact same thing happened to me in Krabi a few years ago -- sorry to hear about your bad experience.
