HERE A COMPLETE packing list :

What kind of trip you’re about to embark on whether it’s trekking a mountain, or inter-railing Europe, so we’ve tried to include items that cater to every kind of trip!

When it comes to packing, the best way to pack a backpack is to save space. Our top tip is to fold your clothes efficiently. Remember: Heavy stuff at the bottom, stuff that leaks goes in plastic bags and things you’ll need as soon as you arrive at your destination (like toiletries) at the top. Roll your clothes up rather than fold them if it takes up less room.

This guide will also work for suitcases for air travel too, not just backpacks. Don’t forget anything – and happy travelling!

Here’s a quick rundown of the main essentials to pack before you leave the house:

  • Passport
  • Phone charger / portable phone charger
  • Money
  • EU adapters
  • Flip flops (for the hostel bathrooms)
  • Water bottle
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • sleepers
  • Medicines / painkillers
  • Any paperwork you may need

Things To Know When we Travel Abroad

  • a language barrier : Travelling somewhere you need to know some basic word for that region so that it will help little bit .
  • cell service : the lack of creature comforts like reliable cell service are all things you have to think about when planning an international trip.
  • a portable charger : never leave without my portable battery charger.
  • an RFID-blocking passport case : put passport in a case that has an RFID blocker so it can’t get scanned and my info won’t be stolen.
  • Jet lag tablets : Take one during take-off, every two hours (when you wake up if you fell asleep), and at landing.
  • a waterproof phone case : bring a waterproof phone case if I am going to a beach destination or know I will be doing activities around water.
  • A money belt : Not the most fashionable travel accessory, money belts have the reputation of being lame or silly. But if you’re looking for a way to keep your valuables safe and out of sight during a vacation.
  • some protein chocolates carry if you need so.

What to Pack for Flights: Carry-on Essentials

A comfortable flight begins with being prepared. Here's my ultimate list of carry-on travel essentials, and a handy packing list to help! | what to pack in a carry-on bag | #TravelTips #PackingList #carryon #avgeek #packingguide

“How do you survive such a long flight?!” is perhaps the questions I’m asked most.

In my opinion, your comfort on a flight begins with how you pack your carry-on luggage. Inside contains everything that will help you pass time and stay comfortable.

After an airline lost my luggage last year I created a rather complicated carry-on routine, but for the past few months, I made a conscious decision to improve my habits and minimise my bag.

Now, my in-flight essentials can be thrown together in just a few minutes and suits both the domestic traveller or international long-haul flyer. Here are the items I pack.

Here’s my must have Carry-On Travel Essentials:

A comfortable flight begins with being prepared. Here's my ultimate list of carry-on travel essentials, and a handy packing list to help! | #TravelTips #PackingList

THE ESSENTIALS

When you aren’t flying, it’s a smart looking day-bag with plenty of space for the office or study.

Travel Wallet – Something to fit all your cards, multiple currencies and – maybe – your passport.

Large purses are still on trend right now, so many stores should stock larger models which will easily allow you to slip your passport into for safe keeping!

Cash, bank cards – If you leave these at home you might not be smiling!

Passport, ID – Enough said. (I use a  Passport Cover for extra protection and the perfect place to store loyalty cards or back up travel money cards!)

Phone (and charger) – I have an iPhoneX which I love (or should that be iLove?) but I never leave home without a good charger because, let’s face it, the battery life is pretty average when you are snapping and shooting your holidays!

Should you forget the charger, be sure to ask someone at the hotel’s concierge. You never know who left a charger behind and didn’t claim it… More on my favourite portable charger below!

Travel Documents – I like to print out all my documents and store them in a folder or plastic pocket as a backup should something go wrong. For my current trip,

FOR COMFORT

Long flights are taxing, so stay comfy with these easy to store items.
I pack all of this, plus one extra outfit and some extra underwear, inside a packing cube to keep it neat and save space. Trust me, if you lose your suitcase you’ll be thankful you have these few items!

Onboard Suitcase – I don’t know about you but lugging a heavy carry-on bag around the airport drives me mad and just adds to the shoulder or back pain (something you don’t want when you’re embarking on a 5 or 15+ hour flight!)

Flats, thongs/flip flops – Take your feet out and relax but remember to bring socks or slip-on shoes in case you want to go to the bathroom!

I usually wear my Minnetonka moccasins onto the plane because they’re lightweight and easy to slip off during security, but as a back-up, I keep a pair of Havaianas in my hand luggage for convenience onboard (and for any potential swimming or beach stops!)

Socks – For your comfort and sanitary reasons, keep some socks on your feet in flight.

Scarf – Planes temperatures fluctuate and they’re either extremely hot or cold. If they’re cold, there’s nothing better than cuddling up in a scarf. Bonus, it can be used as a pillow, eye mask or blanket!

Cardigan, jumper – Same reasons as a scarf. Cuddle up in a nice jumper and keep away from those germy travel blankets! Cardigans are also a nice lightweight alternative to your jacket and can be worn in all weather conditions!
I LOVE Country Road’s range of cardigans and am wearing

Track pants – For long-haul flights, I always bring a pair of track pants or pajama bottoms. Keeps your day clothes from getting wrinkled and smelly, and you stay comfortable in-flight.

Sunglasses – Especially great if you’ve had an overnight flight to somewhere sunny,

ENTERTAINMENT

Even on long-haul flights some airlines don’t provide you with any entertainment option or offer limited or modified programs. Bring your own items to keep yourself occupied, especially if you aren’t a big sleeper!

Headphones – After a long search for the perfect travel headphones I think I have found them. I’ve been using Bose headphones for the last four-or-so years and love them.

I was a massive fan of their earlier model (the Bose QC25s) and was skeptical about upgrading to their newer cordless + Bluetooth model, but grateful I did! They are perfect for travel and everyday life.

Being cordless (they do come with a cord to use if the battery runs out or if there are issues connecting to a device with Bluetooth) means you don’t have to worry about tangles, they’re easy to sleep in on planes (and I regularly do), perfect for working out in, and the sound is just superb; I feel like I’ve got surround sound all the time!

My only gripe is that you do need to bring the cable and connector to be able to use these with in-flight entertainment systems, and some of the older systems can be a bit funny finicky about them.

iPad, tablet, Kindle – I’m going to be honest here: prior to 2018, I used to travel with my iPad, Microsoft surface tablet or Kindle/eReader all the time, but with the increasing size of phones

Regardless, I am a big fan of downloading a few books, a podcast or two, and some Netflix or Stan (an Australia streaming platform) episodes to watch onboard on whichever device I do choose to travel with.

Laptop – As I work when I travel, my MacBook Pro comes with me everywhere I go. Be sure to invest in a good protective case, like the Herschel Supply Co. case I have, or a good bag to store it in; there’s been one too many occasions I’ve had ham-handed security drop my laptop and the thick padding has saved my laptop from being broken beyond repair.

Notebook & pen – I’m old school. I love having a notebook and pen in my bag. The notebook is great for when my phone or tablet runs out of battery, writing down emails or phone numbers of new friends or for writing notes. The pen is handy in any situation, especially when it comes to filling in landing cards!

I love these travel-themed notebooks by Rifle Paper Co. or a plain black A5 Moleskine notebook.

Books & magazines – While tablets and Kindle‘s save on space, there is nothing like the feel (and smell) of a printed book. I usually try to bring one with me on every trip.

If I’m on a long-haul flight you’ll always find some magazines in my bag for when I’m too tired to read a novel. If you know you’re going away soon, save some back issues of your favourite mags to ensure you have plenty to read. I usually try to save a few editions of Luxury Travel MagazineHarvard Business Review or Time (Trust me, the articles are fascinating!) If I need something a little lighter, you can’t beat some celebrity goss with Famous.

Portable battery charger – Stay powered up wherever you go!Portable Power Banks. Lightweight (218g), sturdy, they come with two USB slots, which means I can share it with my travel buddy. Pay the few extra dollars for the 10,000mAh. It charges my iPhone 5-6 times before it needs recharging.

Camera – Keep your camera secure and pack it in your carry-on, no matter the size.
DSLR’s can be considered bulky and heavy; if you’re looking for a camera that’s a smaller size, consider an Olympus OM-D or, for video lovers, try a GoPro HERO7 

BEAUTY

Planes and climate changes can sap the moisture from your skin so it’s super important to hydrate!
Don’t forget to pack it in a suitable clear TSA approved make-up bag.

Lip balm – Pucker up and use a hydrating lip balm on your travels.

Roll-on deodorant –  keep spotting travel-size aerosol deodorants but there is nothing worse than choking on the fumes when spraying it on in the tiny airplane bathrooms.

Hair ties & brush – Is it just me or does your hair go either full-on banshee or static and frizzy after a flight? To look your best, pack the pint-sized Tangle Teezer and some hair ties in your carry-on. Even with my long thick hair, the Tangle Teezer makes easy work of knots and frizz, before flight.

Toothbrush & toothpaste – I don’t think I need to explain why I’ve included this one (if I do, try smelling someone’s breath after a 15-hour flight – ew!)
If you don’t want to pack a toothbrush & paste (some airlines still give them to you on the plane), consider packing some Listerine Pocket Cool Mints. These tiny wafers dissolve on your tongue and will leave your breath minty fresh.

Make-up – Keep it simple! Onboard I bring the bare essentials which allow me to pull off a day or night look, just in case of delays.

Face wipes – Airplanes are one of the few places where you can skimp on the full face cleansing routine and go with the easy makeup wipe option. .

Rollerball perfume – I smell pretty average after a long-haul flight thanks to the passage of time and all that stale air. To mask any funky odours, I have a discrete rollerball stored in my bag.

Dry shampoo – I’m not a fan of dry shampoo (okay, I haven’t tried it but nothing can beat a shower) when travelling

ODDS & ENDS

Those little things that can go a long way!

Tissues – Snotty noses, mopping up messes, and able to write your number on to pass to cute guys… yep, tissues are essentials!

Dettol Sanitising Wipes – These are one of my holy grail items and I take them everywhere, both at home and abroad.

Wipe down dirty tables, sanitise cuts or scrapes, or just clean sticky hands. In Singapore and Malaysia, you can use these – or a packet of tissues – to ‘reserve’ a seat in Hawker Halls. Buy them in bulk and keep a few packets in your luggage as back up.

Pandol/Tylenol – Headaches, muscle aches, and a myriad of other reason. It’s not fun trying to ask where the pharmacy is when your head or body is hurting.

Vitamins, Melatonin – Stay healthy and remember to pack these into your suitcase or hand luggage. If you struggle with jet lag, speak to your Doctor about getting melatonin (you want to source it from a compound pharmacy because regular pharmacies melatonin tablets contain only a small amount per capsule).

Foldable Water Bottle – Tiny airplane cups that create land waste, be gone! I’ve been alternating between my Vapur foldable water bottle and slightly more fancy and durable Swell water bottle for a while now and love both!

Also, great for saving money on bottled water if you’re going to be doing some adventure activities or city sightseeing, or when hiking as Vapur folds down to such a tiny size and Swell can handle being jostled around for hours!

Snacks – 15 hours is a LONG time to survive on only airplane food. Bring your own snacks from home to keep your tummy happy.

You can also try pepes be pasih which is a fish dish wrapped in banana leaves and as the staff speak English this is a good choice if you are new in town and want to sample some of the local delights.

World’s Best Places to Visit

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Tour & Travel
With a world full of fascinating destinations, choosing the perfect vacation spot can present a challenge. That's why U.S. News used expert opinions, reader votes and current trends – and evaluated sights, cultures, scenic beauty, food scenes and more – to compile this list of the world's best places to visit. 

South Island, New Zealand :

New Zealand’s South Island brims with majestic landscapes at every turn, from dramatic mountains to fjords to glaciers. Here, you can explore Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Area, or gaze at the starry skies at Mount John Observatory. You can also indulge your inner daredevil in Queenstown, explore two of the most accessible glaciers in the world on the country’s west coast or sample delicious food and wine in the Marlborough region.

Paris :

Every day, the magnetic City of Light draws visitors from around the globe who come to see iconic attractions like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. But what travelers really fall in love with are the city’s quaint cafes, vibrant markets, trendy shopping districts and unmistakable je ne sais quoi charm. Get lost wandering along Paris’ cobblestone streets, or grab a croissant and relax on the banks of the Seine for hours.

Tokyo :

Simply setting foot in Japan’s cosmopolitan capital is an experience within itself. A city known for its bustling streets adorned with flashing neon signs, Tokyo offers visitors a little bit of everything. Foodies won’t be let down by the city’s fresh sushi and hearty ramen. Budding photographers and adrenaline junkies will love taking in the sweeping panoramas from the top of the Tokyo Skytree. Shopaholics will find plenty of must-have designer products in Ginza. And for history buffs, Tokyo offers centuries-old temples and shrines to explore.

Phuket

Located in southern Thailand, Phuket offers something for everyone, especially budget-minded travelers. Everything from accommodations to spa treatments to boat tours come with a low price tag. For stunning scenery, check out the limestone cliffs of Phang Nga Bay and lounge on Phuket’s gorgeous white sand beaches. Other must-sees include Wat Chalong Temple and the Big Buddha. Once the sun sets, take part in the island’s lively nightlife scene.

Grand Canyon

Measuring roughly 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and a mile deep, the Grand Canyon offers plenty of outdoor activities for everyone from day-trippers to adventure junkies. Hike along the national park’s popular Rim and Bright Angel trails for unparalleled vistas, cool off with a whitewater rafting excursion down the Colorado River or view the dramatic Arizona landscape from above during a helicopter tour .

Yosemite

Year after year, millions of visitors travel to California’s Yosemite National Park to stand in awe of natural wonders like Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. Take in the panoramic views from outlooks like Glacier Point and the Tunnel View. Hit the hiking trails early in the day to avoid crowds looking for the perfect photo-op. To save money, skip the hotel and camp out for the full experience (just be sure to book your spot well in advance).

Great Barrier Reef

The globe’s largest coral reef system – and one of the original Seven Natural Wonders of the World – touts incredible scenery, whether you view it underwater, from the air or by boat. At Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, you’ll find more than 600 islands and 1,500-plus species of fish. Though plenty of diving and snorkeling spots can be found along Queensland’s coast, to escape the crowds, take an excursion to the Whitsunday Islands.

Costa Rica

From volcanic mountains to verdant rainforests to stunning shorelines, Costa Rica is a Central American gem. Explore the beaches along the Nicoya Peninsula, hike along Arenal Volcano and spot exotic wildlife in remote Tortuguero National Park. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, go swimming next to some of the country’s waterfalls or zip lining through its rainforests. Just make sure you plan a visit during Costa Rica’s dry season, or between mid-December and April.

Cancun

Cancún is nothing if not resilient. Consider the debilitating effects Hurricane Wilma had on the region in 2005 – drowned shores, destroyed storefronts and capsized boats. But now, this skinny “7”-shaped barrier island in southeastern Mexico is once again a go-to spot for beaches, golfing and nightlife. Cancún also remains one of the most affordable vacation destinations in the Western Hemisphere, especially if you book a cruise. 

Tulum

In the past decade, Tulum has grown into a coveted vacation for luxury travelers; however, it still tempts bargain hunters who remember when this tucked-away jewel of Mexico’s east coast was more of a secluded getaway. Here, you’ll find some of the best-preserved Mayan ruins in the Western Hemisphere, ruins that have the cerulean waters of the Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. And there are other out-of-this-world wonders, including several cenotes (or underground water-filled caverns) and bioreserves. As an added plus: Tulum continues to be the tiny, quiet alternative to the other Riviera Maya resort areas during the spring break season.

Cozumel

Cozumel’s clear turquoise waters and powdery sands coax travelers from cold winter climates to this roughly 185-square-mile island off the Yucatán Peninsula. Cruise ships are a constant feature of Cozumel’s coastal views, and the atmosphere on this charming island is often interrupted by tourist chatter. In fact, Cozumel’s charms are so effective that the shopping plazas along the waterfront stay congested much of the year.

Miami

Take a number of diverse cultures, add a strong dose of the arts and a splash of ocean water, and you have Miami. Looking at the fantastic art museums and the blossoming gastronomical scene, you might find it hard to believe that just a century ago, this colorful Floridian city was covered in swampland. Once developers rushed into the area, one of the most popular tourist destinations and spectacular city skylines in the country was born. Today, with South Beach before you and the Everglades behind you, you can walk through the bustling streets past historical homes with Spanish words and Caribbean music floating into your ears.
