Should I get a feather bed mattress topper? Twist: Vietnam.

Recently, my company opened an office in Ho Chi Minh city. For the first few business trips that we took over there we stayed at a nearby hotel but as the trips got longer and more frequent, it made more financial sense to get a corporate apartment.
I haven't been there since they got the apartment, but my boyfriend (we work at the same company) said that the bed is hard (as beds typically are in Asia). I'm wondering if it makes sense to bring a featherbed topper with me on my next trip over and keep it there.
So here's my questions:
How is a featherbed going to fare with humidity?
Today its at 80% humidity. There's air conditioning indoors, but its only on when people are home (about 10 - 12 hours a day) I don't want mold to become a problem.
Am I going to be able to travel with a featherbed? I'll need to get on a plane with it. Is it possible?
Does sleeping on a featherbed make it warmer than not sleeping on one? Again, back to the weather...
Should I just buy it in Vietnam? Would I be able to find it at a reasonable price?
In my experience, I had trouble finding things that I otherwise thought would be easy to find (contact lens fluid) or they're really expensive (iPhone 5 is $1,000! Okay, that's an extreme)
Are there alternatives to featherbeds that I should consider?
Thanks for reading and your comments!
