Hi, Dyanne. Thanks for sharing your tips! I've also bughot a few items at the Goodwill shop including shorts with velcro pocket flaps. They came in handy in Central America. And YES to the antibacterial wipes!! Very important. LOL re: the less than hygienic w.c.'. Yup!What inspired this post, by the way (just added this in), is being stuck in Turkey with nowhere to get cheap reading glasses. Was not fun. I had to fork over $40 to a fancy eyeglass place since there were no cheap places in the area. I'd even asked locals to help me. Since then, I've always packed 3 pairs of cheap readers from the dollar store. Lucky that you're living in SE Asia. I can imagine things are super cheap in Vietnam! I saw that with some items (but not all) in Indonesia. Depended on where, of course. In tourist areas, prices were high, of course. I had considered buying my malaria pills in Indonesia, but I got them here. Fortunately, my insurance covered most of it (if it hadn't, I wouldn't have). And I'm glad I did because of where I went first (Pekanbaru) a city that few tourists go to (would have been too hard to shop since no one spoke English) and then the village of Payakumbuh. I didn't have a good feeling about the pharmacies there even in the city section. Very iffy. So I think that in this case, I made the right decision. Of course, if I'd started my trip in Lake Toba, Yogyakarta (great pharmacies there!) or Bali, I would have bughot locally. Or if I'd needed them in Panama, certainly, I'd buy in Panama City. Re: the generic Tylenol and antihistamine, I'm cool with paying a dollar here. As long as I recognize the generic brand and the date is good (and the package is intact), I'm comfortable.
