You’ve likely heard this advice, but it is worth reiterating to pack lightly. Southeast Asian cities are crowded and chaotic. Wheeling around a suitcase is not feasible on the jam-packed, uneven sidewalks; especially not during the rainy season! Instead, invest in a sturdy, lightweight backpack for your essentials. Another perk to packing lightly is it leaves extra space for the souvenirs you know you’ll want to buy!

What you pack should also depend on the time of year. The northern regions of Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos can be quite chilly in the months of November-April with temperatures reaching the low teens. In contrast, from May-October is the rainy season and you are likely to be caught in a monsoon. Your umbrella will be no match for the heavy rains of SE Asia so swap it out for a quality raincoat and a good pair of shoes. Locals will be seen sporting ponchos that you can buy on the side of the road for under $1.00.
