Sunscreen & Bug Spray

As mentioned before, the sun is almost constantly shining in this part of the world and to keep from getting sunburnt, be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen. There are also a lot of mosquitos and to avoid getting bitten and being miserable, you will want to bring strong bug spray.

Comfortable Shoes


There is almost a guaranteed chance that you are going to be doing a ton of walking while in Vietnam. While you are exploring the streets, you are going to want some very comfortable tennis shoes. If you head to the beaches (which you should) then you will need some comfortable sandals. If you are into hiking or trekking then get some comfortable and durable shoes for that!

Medical Items

Medical Items

Though you always hope accidents won’t happen while on vacation, it is always best to be prepared. Be sure to pack a mini first-aid kit with all of the essentials including Band-Aids, tweezers, disinfectant and any prescription medications you need.

Women’s Personal Hygiene Items 

If you are a woman heading to Vietnam for the first time you may not be aware of the differences that come along with the feminine products such as tampons and pads. If you feel more comfortable with the ones from your own home country, then be sure to pack plenty when you are getting ready to head out to for your Vietnam adventures. Remember that it is always better to bring too many than too little.
