    I have been flying frequently for the past year, personally there will come a time where you will be sick of it due to the jet lag and the moving a round. Short distance is not too bad but for long distrance travel, things gets a little tiring. And in Singapore context, reporting back to sing office is a must to most ppl, therefore you work from 8am - 5 pm over there and get back home to call back to singapore office like maybe 11 pm, sometimes teleconference with the sing office can last till maybe 2 am when u are oversea and u are expect to be fresh in the office again the next day.

    When u are back to the office in singapore, report is a must and like most of the ppl mention, now a days company is timing your every move and trying to cut cost and minimise your stopping over time between countries when you transit.

    So travel working might not be as glamourous as what most think, the worst is the family sickness that you face oversea. Sleeping might be problem when u oversea when someone in singapore call u in the middle of the night cos of the time difference.

    So u have to be mentally prepared when u take it up. There is always two sides to a coin depends on how you flip it.

    But generally, most MNC will send their ppl out for exposure at least. Check out the papers for requirements.

    I am project engineer too and I did lots of travel. But I never bring my gears during business travelling since almost no time left for slacking. Also because I always traveling to ulu ulu places, 7-14 hrs trip with car to customer site is a norm. Almost everynight I need to go pub with my collegue for drinking or to company our customer if I am staying near to City. But most of the time I stay at guest house or small hotel near the site to save travelling time. My job is very tough but I love it.
    I believe most of us will not bring our camera to this kind of environment: http://us.f2.yahoofs.com/users/4115d...wrKvDBtNPvws8d

    I got small compact camera from my company. It's a very old sony digicam 1.3 mp without zoom.
    This place is okay, but it makes all your equipment smell fishy, once back to SG I spray all my things with parfume.

    I am a Sales and service engineer, so got to travel much around southeast asia. However, always make it a point to look-see-look-see.

    Was in Vietnam for work too recently, but luckier. Got this from the 33 floor building:

    Is that Hanoi? I've been to Hanoi but no time to explore the city.
    Vietnam is a good place and friendly people....just becareful with their seafood. You may get something that totally different what usually eat here.
    Did you get chance to the travel on road? the drivers there have special hand signal to warn other drivers of traffic police ops.
    I will going to HCMC again before CNY.

    Was in HCMC on the last day. Crazy traffic there. They horn so much! Didn't know so much abt their seafood or hand signal cos was there first time. Anyway, i always drink mineral water and eat fast food in such countries unless some local ppl bring me for local food.
    Thx for advice!
