  • Passport with all relevant documents (visa, vaccination records, etc.) and an extra passport size photo
  • A piece of paper with the following information: Your passport number; Family contacts from your home country; Your bank phone number in case you lose your bank card; Address and phone number of your embassy in Vietnam; Emergency numbers (police, ambulance); Your hotel phone and address (if you have booked in advance)
  • Emergency kit and insect repellant
  • Camera and battery or charger
  • Medicines if you have an existing prescription
  • Your travel guidebook
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen: SPF 45 is enough for the harshness of the hot sun in Vietnam.

  • Underwear: bring a lot
  • Swimwear: if you plan to go to the beach
  • Shoes: if you plan to do a lot of walking, bring a pair of walking shoes. Flip-flops are also a popular choice. However, you should wear sandals if you want to visit temples, museums and mausoleums.

Here is a list of what you may or may not want depending on your needs:

  • Mobile phones, laptops and corresponding chargers
  • Travel Diary
  • Toilet paper or tampons, if you’re really loyal to your brand
  • Read the document
