Hello,

Thank you for your post. Vacanitations are not madatory nor are they required by law to be completed, however I highly recommend discussing the issue with your primary physician before you make any decisions.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to email customerservice@uniworld.com

Thank you,
Katie (community manager)

We have just returned from this trip and were told a Hep "A" was the only thing required.

Welcome to Uniworld's Community Center.

We don't have a dress code on the ship as we want you to be comfortable.

For the Welcome and Farewell Dinners, we recommend a cocktail dress or blouse and dress/capri pants for the ladies and for men, a dress shirt, and slacks.

Please review our cruise guide for other recommendations: http://uniworld.com/Before-You-Go/Cruise-Companion

Should you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at customerservice@uniworld.com or 800-733-7820.

Best,
Anne (community manager)

Hi there, just back from the Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong Tour. Suggest u also check with your Dr. However, I can tell u sanitation and food handling is not the same as in Canada or the US. The River Boat, hotels and all restaurants that are included on the tour are ok.

Hope this helps.

If u want other tips on this trip just ask.

Hi Candi, we r just back from this wonderful trip. First c ur dr for recommended shots. We even took the malaria pills. Depending on the weather these items r a must have: baseball cap/hat; sunscreen; Off Deep Woods bug spray/wipes (put on before u go out) take the wipes with u); good walking shoes - no flip flops for tours - no real sidewalks. Sandals/flip flops for the boat. Capri pants (no jeans - too hot) no short shorts; Will need longer shorts (below the knees and 3/4 t-shirts/tops for some of the temples. This is what worked for me - travel jersey knit Capri pants, exercise tops, long cotton over blouses and cotton underclothes. Why - u can rinse them out in hotels or boat and they will dry overnight. Men - t-shirts (not polo shirts too hot - will not dry overnight - again cotton shorts - not jeans). U will be going thru two or three sets of clothes a day. There is laundry service available - however clothes r washed in hot water and everything dried in order to meet the turnaround time. Evening wear - Caribbean type clothes. Just a couple of outfits. The River Boat is very nice. Drinks on board are complimentary - not top shelf alcohol - but good enough - drink of the day - $4. each. Vietnam u need their currency - Dong. ATMs all over. In Cambodia US dollars. Bring small currency. $1s, $5s and $10s. A lot of tipping. No Internet on the River Saigon. Bring a backpack and snacks from home. Don't bring a big purse and downsize your wallet. Also if u can bring school supplies - pencils, notepads. pencil sharpeners, coloring books for the kids in the villages. BTW most bathrooms are western - however, also be prepared with TP and hand sanitizer. This is an amazing and educational trip. If u need more info just ask. Happy travels.

Would love more info regarding this tour. My husband & I and another couple will be taking this tour January 10 - ( 15 days). When did you go? How was the weather, food, ship? Do you recommend any excursions? What did you do about laundry? Any info you can give would be appreciated! Thank you!

Thanks for this information! I'm a little worried about the trip but also looking forward to it - if that makes any sense. This is pretty outside the box as far as any other trips that we have taken before! What kinds of clothes do the men need for visiting the temples. Good sturdy tennis shoes advisable or do we need hiking/trail boots? How many outfits did you take?
