I have been to Vietnam many times and have never gotten lost. Each time I went, I had a tour guide who knew all of the best places to see, as well as everything about the culture. It's always a good idea to travel with someone and not go alone.

Most areas will have guides which is great but this is still good information to know. I have gotten lost in my own country so I would imagine it can be scary being lost in another country thousands of miles away from home.

Anytime I go anywhere, I always make sure to have GPS on my phone and if for some reason I can't use it, I have a digital and physical map of the general area I will be in.

The best thing to do if you get lost in Vietnam is to get help from a local or a stranger. You never know when you might run into someone who can help or even someone who just wants to be helpful!

But if that doesn't work out and you still can't find your way back to your hotel, try asking for directions at a restaurant or bar. They often have maps and business cards available for their guests, so they may be able to help guide you home!

I got lost once in Japan and was not sure what to do. Thankfully they have enough areas with English where I could ask for help. I was able to find people who could passively understand me and I them. it helps to know some of the languages before going to any country that speaks a different one from you.
