What should I pack when moving to Haiphong?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Haiphong to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Haiphong, it's essential to pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. Include a mix of short-sleeved shirts, shorts, and long pants for various occasions. Don't forget to pack a raincoat or umbrella as Haiphong experiences a rainy season. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, as well as sandals or flip-flops for more casual settings. Pack a hat, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Bring any prescription medications you need, along with a basic first aid kit. It's also a good idea to pack insect repellent and any preferred over-the-counter medications, as they may not be readily available in Vietnam. If you plan on working or studying, bring any necessary documents, electronics, and work materials. Don't forget your chargers and consider bringing a power adapter, as the outlets in Vietnam may be different from your home country. Pack toiletries, but remember that many items can be purchased locally. However, if you have specific brands you prefer, it may be best to bring them with you. Bring copies of important documents, such as your passport, visa, and driver's license. It's also a good idea to have digital copies stored securely online. Lastly, consider packing a few comfort items from home, such as favorite snacks, books, or photos, to help you settle into your new home," wrote a member who made the move to Haiphong, Vietnam.
