Please consider taking along the following items on your trip. This is not a fixed list, but more of a guideline, so feel free to add and remove items as you see fit. Use your best judgment, and pack as lightly as possible. You will appreciate light luggage towards the end of your trip. You may wish to include a small duffle for purchases bought along the way.
(NOTE: No matter what type of trip you are on, the key to dressing is layering. This will allow you to stay warm day or night despite wide temperature fluctuations. Also remember cotton and jeans do not dry easily. Include a few items made of capilene or polypro which wick moisture away from your body.)
Suggested Tipping Guidelines
Our clients always ask us what they should tip drivers, guides, etc. while on their trip. This is very
difficult to respond to because tipping relates directly to your overall experience with each person.
However, here are some travel industry standards that will give you a baseline idea about
Tipping - Travel Industry Standards:
Guide - $10 per person per day
Driver - $5 per person per day
Cruises in Halong Bay - $20 per night
For trekking trips:
Cook: $4 per person per day
Porters and other trekking staff: $3 per person per porter per day
We also suggest you ask your local guide for guidelines on what the local standard is for tipping at
restaurants, bellboys, etc.
