Items and carrying luggage


The temperature in the Mekong Delta is pleasant so you don't need to bring too warm clothes as traveling to Sapa or Dalat. Just bring some casual clothes and a jacket to avoid the sun. Western terrain is quite dusty so you'd better wear colored cloth which is easy-washing, do not carry the white cloth to avoid being easily soiled in the process of moving in Indochina areas.

Sandals or shoes

Choose the ones which are easy-going and convenient because you will have to move a lot on this tour. You should not wear high heels to avoid difficulty moving in the Western river. Also, the canvas shoes are not proper that will be easily damaged and cause discomfort. Instead, let's use rubber sandals, slippers, or waterproof shoes.
