What to bring in Vietnam?

We will list out some of the most necessary items for your Vietnam packing checklist:

  1. Good Footwear: Vietnamese streets are pretty slippery and lumpy, especially in rainy season (from May to November in the South, and from April to September in the North). If you plan to visit Vietnam at this time, it is better to prepare a pair of non-slip shoes.
  2. Torch: In some areas, the electrical system is not stable, power supply can be cut down at any time. If it occurs at night, a torch or bunch of candles can be saviors in the night.
  3. Insect repellent: Because Vietnam lies in tropical zone with high humidity all year round, therefore, it creates favorable condition for insect including mosquitos, lice, fleas, etc. to reproduce. If you got bitten by these insects, you can have high chance of getting transmitted disease.
  4. Electrical adaptor: As the shape of socket and voltage vary amongst countries, you will need to bring adaptor to connect electrical devices.
  5. Medicine Kit: including gauze, anti-diarrhea, antiseptic solution, etc. When you come to a foreign country, it is possible that you will get affected by strange food, or weather. So it is better to prepare yourself with proper medication.

Above is our guideline to help to prepare and enjoy your trip in Vietnam. We really hope that you will have your best time here!

Best Regards,
