2. Pack your chargers
Are you addicted to your electronic devices? Make sure you do not forget to pack your chargers in your luggage. It could be really important things because it can allow you getting wifi or else if you are lost in Vietnam. If your chargers are common such as Ipad and Iphone you can bring only one cable for both.

3. A notebook and a pen
It can be useful especially if you organize MICE events. You can write down what is important in your event, write some contacts and so on. It does not take so much space in the luggage so it is good stuff to bring. With this, you can write every single thing that could be important: money spent, stuff you need in the supermarket and so on.

4. Travel pillow
Yes, we all know the difficulty of finding a good position to sleep in the plane or in the car. Impossible is the word. So if you don’t want to walk as an old man during all your vacations try not to forget your pillow. This can prevent an accident, as when your head falls little by little in your neighbor’s shoulders during your deep night. And it’s not expensive, be a little more respectful with your back which suffers during all the trips.

5. Take some snacks
Even if you can find some snacks there, it is always good to have some from your own country. First, you can eat some snacks during the trip (which can be really long). Second, it prevents you from buying some Europeans snacks in other countries which are really expensive. It nearly doubles the price that you can pay so be smart and take some snacks for your travel. As well, maybe when you will be missing your country, the taste will remind your home country and it can make you happy.

6. A good pair of sandals or flip-flops
Sandals and flip-flops are not only made for going to the beach. Actually, they are a good protection from infections that are frequent in the humid part of Vietnam. Even during the typical rainy day, those kinds of shoes are the best because they are not sensible to humidity.
