Saigon is indeed one of those places where to be more careful. If you like to go, just go, but keep an eye out. That is what I do and I did not run into problems (yet...........:)). Be aware and you should be fine. There are many other people who are careless and they are the prime targets. If I was a thief I would look for easy victims and I always see plenty.
Be especially aware of the motorbikes. They go anywhere into any direction, including on the pavements.
Have a nice trip!
