Something that wasn't mentioned that I think helps a lot is to bring one of those small hand fans. I have one that I can plug into my phone and it has helped me a lot when traveling to places that get super hot. They also sell ones with built-in water sprayers too.

I have seen some sold in shops at airports before around different areas so it is always an option to grab one after the fact but best to bring you own just in case!

I don't mind the heat so much, it is the humid air that gets to me. I can be in very high temps but if the humidity is not high, I am fine. But I have heard some months are terrible humid in Mekong Delta!

I learned a lot about this location reading this post but not very much information on beating the heat, per say. I mean this location sounds amazing. Not one I had considering visiting before!

I think of of the best ways is to stay hydrated. Your body will run cooler the more you drink. Just don't overdo it as too much water in a short period can make you sick!
