Yes, you should. Travel insurance and medical precautions are essential. We do not give specific advice on these matters as we are expert in neither, and individual circumstances differ.
We advise you to tell us the name of the company and its contact details so that we can give notification on your behalf if you are unable to do so in the unlikely event of an accident occurring.
If you are intending to engage in any activity that could be considered ‘hazardous’ in any way, you should check your insurance carefully to make sure that you will be covered in the case of an accident.
While in Vietnam, you can use the free Wi-Fi provided by hotels, cafes, and restaurants, but it can be unreliable when you’re out and about.
To stay connected on the go, you can purchase a local SIM card. Mobile phone networks in Vietnam operate on the same GSM technology as used in Europe, Australia and most of the world, apart from the US. If you have a GSM mobile phone, it is easy and cheap to buy a Vietnamese SIM card and install it in your phone, giving you a Vietnamese mobile number. Your mobile company may also allow roaming via Vietnamese networks, although the fees are often significant. You can easily buy a SIM card at the airport upon arrival, as there are numerous kiosks available. If you’ve already left the airport without a SIM card, you can visit one of the mobile operators’ branch offices, which can be found conveniently in all major cities.
Internet use among Vietnamese has skyrocketed in recent years, and internet access is now ubiquitous in Vietnam. Almost all hotels, restaurants, café, shops now have free wifi for guests. Besides, the option of buying a pre-paid SIM card will give you plenty of 3G/5G to use internet when you are on the roads to travel.
Electricity in Vietnam is always 220-240V. Plug styles vary, but the most common are the two pin or three pin European style plugs. You will also find two prong or two prong one pin North American style plugs, more often in the south, but power is still 220-240V – make certain that your device can accept 240V before plugging it in, or your nifty folding hairdryer might go up in smoke. Many larger hotels can provide plug adapters if needed, but of course it is best to bring any adapters you will need, along with charging cords for any and all electronic gadgets that travel with you.
