I'm bringing one big backpack and a smaller one
Travel pillow is a good idea
I also went out and got some alcohol based hand sanitizer and mosquito spray. My friend was in Vietnam and he said he was being eaten alive by mosquitoes in a shop in Hoi An. So i guess a small repellant for your day pack would be good
Maybe a leather covered shoe, because we'll be there in the hot season (monsoon) so we'll probs have some showers, they are a little more water resistant than canvas ones
that's all I can think of

Cheers for the tips, especially the mosquito spray. though when I read you went out and got some alcohol... I got all excited for some reason :P but yh hand sanitiser's good too. :roll:

from what i've seen on the weather is that it'll be between 30-38C but heavy thunderstorms too, so i guess im just going to pack all summer clothes and some armbands just to be safe

Armbands?
I hear the weather is pretty bipolar though....like fine, then pouring, then fine all within half an hour

Sorry that's the British word, I think i mean water wings or floaties, im not sure, either way I now know there was no point me saying it :lol:
If that's the case there really isnt much I can think of to prepare for it, i'll just embrace it, whatever the weather.

If ur almost ready then I'm sure uve read through the itinerary a couple of times. What place are you most looking forward to seeing?

Ohhh that makes more sense now!

Honestly mate....I couldn't pick destination or activity. I was reading through it excited by every day. I checked out this blog written by a girl who did you tour a few years ago. It was pretty positive!
Do you have any favorites so far?

I know what you mean dude, it all looks so good, there isn't 1 day i'm not looking forward to, but in Cambodia it would have to be Angkor Wat and in Vietnam just all the new things to try, like the ridiculous food and get a budget tailor-made suit.
And that's what i've been doing as well, you know, when not revising :P i havn't heard 1 bad thing so far

Well I've just completed my visas, all the ones i need to do beforehand, and ive got my malaria pills, just gotta get some clothes, toiletries and sun screen - I can't wait to get started!!

Ive heard Pho is awesome too, cant wait to go there. Do you have any plans after the tour, I know the ending is probably the LAST thing you want to be thinking about (i apologise) but are u just flying back home afterwards?
