Hi, I am going on an Avalon Cruise on the Mekong River in February. Unfortunately, there are some issues at home and I need to be able to access the internet at least once a day. I have read that reception is spotty. Does anyone know of a sim card I can get for my phone where I could get texts along the way? Or, are there internet cafes at the ports? Thanks!

Any population center will have cellular service. But in between, there may be no service at all.

I think ATT offers international service in Vietnam. If an ATT customer, you will pay either $30 or $60 extra for 1 month international service, and you get unlimited texts, a bit of data, and calls at 50 cents or $1 per minute.

Unfortunately, T-Mobile does not have their great international service in Vietnam. But it is available in Cambodia.
