If you are concerned only about those two issues, and about threats only
from those interested in the hardware, not the data on it, then
encryption will work.

If you are also concerned about Government or corporate interest in your
data, then encryption is not enough.

Reams of stuff have been written about precautions to take when entering
difficult countries such as China and the US; a few minutes searching
should find it easily enough.

The best precaution is not to take the data with you at all.
