Wet season in HCMC - top tips before move in.

Hello to the community,

I'm just moving to HCMC this Monday.

I've been living in Spain, Norway & Poland for the past.
In December the temperature drops to arround -30 C (not in Spain), so this year I'm on a runaway to try something totally new!

I've been reading some articles about the wet season but could you give me any tips:

- Should I take any heavy jacked, or a regular summer ones & a few hoodies are enough?

Any overall pre-packing tips from your end would be great - what's the MUST have to survive the first few weeks.


The wet season is nearly over, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It doesn't rain all day, it's usually just a storm and that's it.
