Travel Advise?

23 Feb 2011 Danny asked


Hey I was wondering if you guys know if we needed any type of vaccinations for the Asia Adventure tour? Also in regards to what kind of footwear we should bring? Any other stuff we should know to pack for the trip?

    Vaccinations, malaria tablets, etc. are recommended but you don’t have to have them. I went on the Asian Adventure tour last year and I didn’t take anything. FYI there are some side effects to taking malaria tablets (nothing major but I wasn’t feeling that great when I took them back in 09)

    In terms of footwear I just wore thongs / flip flops pretty much every day (even when we went out at night and riding the bike). When we did the tubing in Vang Vieng I just went barefoot.

    You’ll need pants to visit the temples but apart from that you can just get around in shorts / boardies and a t-shirt. It can get a little cold on the boat going down the Mekong if you go in winter like I did but apart from that the weather was warm everywhere we went (that was January)
