What to wear?

I am leaving for Viet Nam in the next week and was wondering if someone could tell me, if it is appropriate for females to wear sleeveless shirts?

Is that Brampton, Ontario?

The Vietnamese are somewhat conservative BUT they make allowances for ong Tay (Foreigners).

However, they do appreciate NOT seeing tank tops ( or bare bellies) anywhere than the beach.

Colettes are acceptable most everywhere.

When visiting religious buildings (mosques, pagodas, churches) remember conservative - including the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (actually especially).

Before you leave, pop over to CanTire and get a can or two of Deep Woods DEET spray and don't forget that sun tan lotion and femine napkins are hard to find here. You'll need a hat, too.

I assume you have your VN visa - needed to gain access (if not Bangkok or Cambodia are great places to get one).

Wow, that was a timely tip. I had rather assumed it would be on sale everywhere and far cheaper than then in europe.
