From the ICC website:

Quote:
Piracy prone areas and warnings
S E Asia and the Indian Sub Continent
  • Bangladesh : Chittagong anchorages and approaches – Though the number of attacks have fallen the area is still listed as very high risk.
  • Indonesia : Balongan, Balikpapan, Belawan, Tanjong Priok (Jakarta). Generally be vigilant in other areas. Many attacks may have gone unreported.
  • Malacca straits : Though attacks have decreased due to increased patrolling by the Littoral States, ships advised to maintain strict anti piracy watches when transiting the area.
  • Singapore Straits
  • Vietnam: Vung Tau
Also, some of the areas in question are politically unstable, like Timor, and have guerilla groups operating openly.

However, personally, I plan on visiting most of the Southeast Asia countries, since I have friends and family scattered throughout them. But I am also of Asian descent, and probably do not look as out of place as some others might.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
