You can buy travel insurance as a precaution. It's a good idea to have it, if not just for the extra peace of mind it provides. Also because of covid-19, as of this year, travel insurance is required for Vietnam.

Specifically, "visitors are required to hold a valid medical insurance policy covering the whole duration of their stay in Vietnam." The insurance must be purchased from an international company and cover "accidents or sudden illness." But I heard from many of my foreigner friends that they don't really check this and was able to get into Vietnam without it.

I never considered getting any as I make use of public transport but there have been times when I had considered it for other things like items of mine being insurance. I travel cheap and light though 9 times out of 10.

I heard about the thing with medical insurance. As far as I know, most places do not enforce this even if they state they do. I have been to Japan before and had a tooth issue. They treated me right away and I paid the standard cost which was MUCH cheaper than other countries. They were apologising for the cost and it was maybe 15% what I would have paid back home.
