What to pack
Anyone moving to a new and unfamiliar country would be apprehensive about not forgetting anything important. Here is a helpful list of things any prospective resident of Vietnam should remember.
-At least three work-appropriate outfits.
-Light, summer clothing for the hot weather (hotter days can push 40 degrees celsius).
-For Hanoi, warm clothing for the winter season (temperatures typically drop to around 10 degrees celsius during the daytime).
-A high-SPF sunblock.
-Sunglasses or a brimmed hat.
-A good raincoat and waterproof shoes/boots.
-Appropriate voltage and outlet converters (please refer to the following website for more information).
-An ample supply of any preferred cosmetics or toiletries. A quick search on www.lazada.vn , one of the country’s larger online retailers, can let you know if the product is available in Vietnam.
-Indigestion medication such as Pepto Bismol or Imodium. A quick diet change may have some effects and these brands are not readily available in Vietnam.
