Will be doing Thailand, Laos, Cambodia & Vietnam. No set itinerary but I enjoy hiking.

I choose trail running shoes in the end - great compromise, I even trekked to Everest base camp in them!

Hiking boots definitely, if only to protect against leeches.

I am happy to have my hiking boots with me… but of course it depends if you plan to do a „real“ hike in the jungle, it can be super steep and I was very happy to do it in real hiking boots…

It depends on the hiking trail, is it rocky? Is it slippery? I have hiking using normal sneaker many times but the terrain was easy

I ended up getting some trail shoes as many hikes will involve walking through/over rivers so you need something sturdy that will dry quickly! My normal trainers wore out quick. Crocs or plastic type sandals would be good for some very wet walks (Khao sok national park) when your literally wading through mud and water but not good where there's leeches
