You booked the trip, you locked in the flights, now… what to pack?
First... clothing! There is plenty of opportunities to do your washing with very affordable laundry services on all of our tours. For this reason, we suggest going with mantra “less is more” when it comes to clothing. Consider packing for 7-10 days and then you can wash items one or two times along your trip.
You can also purchase most items on the following list on your tour for very cheap. Things such as towels get wet, smelly, and heavy and lugging them around is not suggested. These types of items will come down to your discretion if you wish to bring them on tour or not.
Here is our full suggested packing list:
- Pair of long trousers
- Light but waterproof jacket
- Long-sleeved top
- Electrical converter
- Torch / flashlight
- Power bank to charge phones other electrics
- Shoes that are suitable for hiking (boots not required)
- Waterproof shoes if you have them
- Shoes that are easily removed. (Upon entering temples and many buildings you will be expected to remove your shoes as a sign of respect. The easier, the better.)
- A camera
- Insect repellent
- Sunscreen. Lots of sunscreen
And of course, the usual: passport, spending money, adventurous curiosity, positive attitude, etc!
We provide the following:
- Snorkel and mask (if snorkeling included on your tour)
- Sleeping bag and pillow (if camping is included on your tour)
- Towel (provided by accommodation)

Backpack Or Normal Luggage?
Backpacks are preferred and will be more convenient for you but suitcases work, too. You’ll never have to carry your luggage for too long at any one time. Try to find something that’s easily accessible and waterproof if possible. And please bring a smaller daypack for short trips throughout the tour.
