Supplies to bring

In the Netherlands, everything is available and you can buy it easily, but when you first arrive, a checklist for you to refer to will make it easier for you to prepare. I will share with you some of my experiences as follows:

+ Clothes: you don’t need to bring too many clothes, bring what you really like, in accordance with your own style. There are also many clothing stores here, with many different prices and quality, and the sale seasons are available almost all year round, so about the price you can rest assured, watch the sale to buy beautiful clothes at a reasonable price. cheap. You should bring home clothes, a few pairs of jeans because the size of these pants can be a bit difficult to buy because European and Asian bodies are also different, Light jacket so you can wear it right away, 1 piece Thick coats are for those who come to the Netherlands around February because the weather is quite cold at that time. Winter clothes I should buy in the Netherlands because of better quality but also more suitable for the climate. You shouldn’t bring too many thick sweaters/sweaters, as there are fireplaces everywhere in the Netherlands, so you only need a thick coat when you’re out and about, while indoors you can still dress modestly but still warm. You can prepare 1, 2 beautiful party dresses for girls, 1 long dress, and 1 vest for boys to wear on special occasions.

+ Shoes and sandals: Buy yourself about 1-2 pairs of soft-soled sports shoes, it’s good, because you will have to walk a lot. Bring an extra pair of slippers (sandals, flip-flops, honeycomb sandals, ..) because sometimes you will have to look for eyestrain without seeing it, due to the Dutch habit of wearing soft, fabric sandals. in the house, rather than wearing plastic slippers like families in Vietnam.

+ Sockets, power sockets: The Netherlands uses 220V electricity like in Vietnam, 2-pin power sockets are round, slightly indented. You should bring 1.2 power sockets to use, or 3-pin to 2-pin converters if needed.

+ Electronics: Girls should bring a small hair dryer. You can also bring a Mini iron if you use it often. As for other electrical items such as study lights, kettles…you can absolutely buy them in the Netherlands in secondhand markets, which are also very cheap or some houses are already available to you.

+ Medicines: Some basic medicines such as antibiotics, cold medicine, headache medicine, lozenges, stomach pain medicine, .. should be prepared but should not be brought too much because it is easy to cause difficulties at customs. . These basic drugs can also be purchased at a few pharmacies but are very expensive and many require a doctor’s prescription. Those with chronic diseases should also prepare the medicines they need along with a doctor’s prescription to prevent being asked when entering the country.

+ Dry food: According to experience, you should bring dry spices that are difficult to buy in Europe such as: soup powder, bring a little rice paper / rice paper rolls, a little dried bamboo shoots if you like, shiitake mushrooms, wood ear, etc. … These items should be carefully vacuumed and placed in checked-in suitcases. You can also bring some instant noodles in case you can’t cook rice or are unfamiliar with the food in the first few days.

+ School supplies: You should bring a calculator, a small English-English dictionary, or a specialized dictionary because some exams allow you to bring an English-English dictionary into the exam room. . Notebooks, Pens, you can bring a few if you like or you may not need to bring them because these are also quite diverse and cheap to buy here.

+ Cash: Before you go, you can open a Mastercard, Visa can make international payments to take away in case and can spend while waiting for the bank card as well as waiting for the school to transfer the money. Cash according to my experience, you should bring about 1500 – 2000 eur depending on your needs, you should pay attention to change money denominations from 50e or less because higher denominations are difficult to spend.

+ Others: Those who are nearsighted can bring 1 pair of glasses in case they are lost or broken. Bringing a scarf, beanie, gloves, umbrella, raincoat… is also an option you should consider.
