Following my Cambodia Adventure tour, which ended in Ho Chi Minh City, I stayed in Vietnam for two weeks, traveling north to Hanoi through Hue and Hoi An, with a stop in Halong Bay.

Here is a list of basic first aid kit contents for international travel. I recommend bringing Western medications with you, since you might not be able to find them easily on the road. You can then incorporate any local, natural cures you find along the way (When I came down with a terrible rash in Cambodia, lemons were the only thing that relieved the itching!).
I have always been skeptical of group tours; however, at the 11th hour I decided to join Intrepid Travel‘s Cambodia Adventure tour, which led me for from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City, making five stops in Cambodia along the way. It was a fantastic 12 days, and I can’t imagine having done it any other way. Here highlights from the tour, as seen on Instagram.
Ladies, this one’s for you! Here’s the list of what I brought in my backpack for almost eight weeks in Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia).:
“Stuff your eyes with wonder. Live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that. Shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.” (Farhrenheit 451)
