Important NotesThings you need to know about this tour
We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in South East Asia so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed.
There are no compulsory vaccinations for any of our destinations and all areas we travel to are very low risk. But if you’re unsure or need advice we recommend visiting your local GP.
There’s never a bad time to travel in Thailand and Vietnam. Most months of the year you will experience both sunshine and possibly some rain. It’s usually quite hot and humid most of the time, but it can occasionally get cold, especially in the north of Vietnam between November and February, so it’s always best to bring a couple of warm layers with your summer clothing.
