What to wear in Vietnam - Clothing tips

Vietnam is not a country that has so many rules and regulations related to how to dress but you are supposed to pay attention to some following tips to enjoy your journey to the utmost.

April, May, June, July, August, September and October are hot and wet, so be sure to pack a lightweight raincoat and/or travel umbrella.

November, December, January, February and March are hot and dry.

Light, comfortable, easy to launder clothing is recommended. Winter months in Hanoi and rainy season in the central region can get cool so a sweater or light jacket will come in handy. Good walking shoes and sandals that can be easily removed are recommended.

Before entering temples and homes, generally it is polite to remove your shoes. Look to see if there are shoes at the door - if so follow suit. Slip-on shoes are the most convenient footwear. Wear long skirt/pants or trousers when visiting the Ho chi Minh mausoleum in Hanoi as access will be denied for men or women with bare knees and shoulders.

If you do not want to bring much clothes and intend to buy them in Vietnam, being under the impression that clothes in Vietnam would be cheap, well, it's time to wake up! Clothes in Vietnam are only cheap when you know how to bargain and where to buy clothes with fixed prices.

A Vietnam Tour offers a wonderful way to discover the very best of Vietnam with the flexibility to make it work for you.
