Hello travelers!

I will be traveling around Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia... after exploring the countries a little bit i am planning to find an English teaching job. My questions are what do i need to bring with me...(what is hard to find in Vietnam). i also heard it is very hard to find non bleaching creams, lotions etc... do i need to bring my own one year supply... OR where can i find the non bleaching products...

:)Thank you

Thailand, Cambodia and VN all have the large superstores like Tesco Lotus, Carrefour, Big C. You will be able to find western lotions in all 3 countries.

Hi Angelina,

1. Finding a job as an English teacher in Vietnam is not hard as you think. Here is some good English training center, school in Hanoi, Vietnam you may find a job.

I have a Canadian friend who is teaching English in Hanoi Open University, maybe he could give you some tips to find a job as an English teacher.

2. Vietnam is amazing country with a lot of world heritages and wonders (both natural and cultural).

If you travel to Hanoi, dont hesitate to contact me, I could be your tour guide for a city tour. :)

All the best,
