I am considering a trip to Ho Chi Minh City this coming February. My main concern is street crime.
I spent 20 plus years in the US Navy and am fully aware of all of the recommended precautions to take while walking the streets of cities like HCMC. But while there i would like to wander around with my camera and take pictures of the people, buildings, markets, etc. My camera is not a point-and-shoot that I can carry in my pocket but a fairly expensive DSLR that I must wear using a neck strap.
If I do this, what are the odds that I will return statesides with my camera?
