As you travel through Vietnam you’ll likely want to visit some pagodas and temples. It is expected that you wear below-the-knee skirts or trousers when you enter these sacred places so make sure you include these in your packing. Although it gets quite hot in Vietnam, people usually dress conservatively day-to-day, so take this into consideration when choosing what clothes to bring.
No doubt you’ll be doing a lot of walking, and maybe even joining us on a trekking adventure, so bring some appropriate footwear. A pair of thongs/flip-flops is also a must and handy for a variety of occasions.
Here are some more items you should pack.
- Travel adapters
- A lightweight waterproof jacket
- Insect repellent
- Diarrhoea medication
- Any toiletries that you’d normally take on a weekend away
Here are some items you may like to consider packing.
- Quick-dry towel
- A jumper (depending on the region and time of year you are visiting)
- Ear plugs/sleeping mask
- Books, stationary and other appropriate items to give to students and people in need. Of course, many of these items will be available in-country for you to purchase if you wish.
There are lots of packing tips online. If you haven’t gone on holiday in south-east Asia before and aren’t sure what to bring, there are many travel bloggers posting their must-bring items (and their packing techniques) specifically for Vietnam.
When you book a tour with YESD we’ll provide you with some extra packing information relevant the tour you choose.
