Set up a plan
Before getting on a tour, you should have an accurate idea about where you will go and what you will do.
Since Vietnam and Cambodia are divided by the Mekong river, you can easily travel from one to another place by waterway or airport. Both countries have a variety of beautiful destinations. So you should look for some advice from the Internet to decide on an itinerary that suitable for your hobby, time and budget.
For first-time travel, we suggest participating in private tours in Vietnam and Cambodia. They will offer you a well-designed schedule. Hence, you don’t have to worry about the places to visit and your accommodation during the trip. You should also consider tours that are suitable for your time and budgets to have a remarkable journey.

Vietnam and Cambodia are the tropical countries that may have different weather, you should take a look at the weather forecast to know what will be in your luggage. If you go to the mountainous area, it might be a little bit cold and suitable for thicker clothes and shoes. While you will need shirts and shorts at the beach to enjoy the sunny weather.
Another tip is that you should avoid bringing unnecessary stuff. You should leave rooms for souvenirs since they are cheap and funny gifts for your family and friends.
A camera, your mobile phone, iPod, personal papers are the essential things. You can try to cut down on clothes and other stuff since you can spend a small amount of laundry at the hotel or purchase inexpensive clothes and accessories at the market.
Bring cash with you
One of the must-try things in both Vietnam and Cambodia is street foods. While walking down the street or market, you will find many delicious snacks that only available in market stalls and street food vendors. They, as well as souvenirs shop, are the small stalls that only take cash. So make sure you have money with you to not miss out on those things.
You can withdraw cash from any ATMs in the country or get to foreign banks to exchange into local currency. However, you should only bring enough and remember to keep your money in a safe place to avoid pickpocketing.
Prepare for health issues
When you travel to Vietnam and Cambodia, you should prepare yourself. The change in weather and many-hour flight may exhaust you. So only went on a tour when you feel totally healthy. Or spend at least half a day in your room to recover after a long flight.
It is a common issue that you will be caught in food poison or digestion problems when traveling abroad. You should ask your doctor before the trip to know about your health status and the food that you should avoid during the journey.
Some tropical insects may be the destroyers on your trip. Remember to bring insect repellent to keep mosquitoes and other creatures away from you.
Vietnam and Cambodia are tropical countries with a hot climate. You will have the chance to enjoy the beautiful golden sunshine and the atmosphere that you might never experience before. However, there is something you should know when traveling around Vietnam and Cambodia.

Especially when you must walk for a long time, it is recommended to wear layered clothes so you can take off your coat when it’s getting hot.
Don’t forget to bring water with you since you will be thirsty during your trip. Avoid going outside between 10 a.m and 2 p.m since it is the highest-temperature time of the day. A handy umbrella will also help you with both the sun and sudden showers.
