I love this list! I just went to Vietnam and have some of the same items. I would add a rain poncho, because it rains a lot there. Also, I highly recommend renting a motorbike while you're there. It's such a fun way to see the country!

The one thing I HATE about Vietnam are the dang bugs! It makes it so annoying to go anywhere in the early morning or evening cause I get bit up. Bug repellent is no joke for real. Make sure you bring plenty!

Would scarves be enough? I do not like hats. 

I have not been to Vietnam since I was a young girl but I am going later this year!

@askaboutme You can use a scarf but it will not protect your face from the sun. I would invest in some big sunglasses at least if you do not want to wear a hat. Depending on the time of year, the sun's heat can be HARSH.

My only qualm with your list is that I would really add some kind of water bottle. The tap water isn't safe to drink, so you need bottled water.

@thanggalang I agree with this. Most people who go and drink from the tap end up with stomach issues because they are not accustomed to the water there. Having one with a good filter is ideal. Or you can buy bottled water there.

Anytime I go anywhere that is hot and humid, I always bring a filtered water bottle, a fan for my phone (those plug-in ones that use the phone battery), a hat, and some thin cloths that I can tie around my wrists. I make them wet and do this and it keeps me much cooler. I learned it from my friend's father who works as a construction man.
