Travel Light by Packing Right

Preparing your luggage is one of the most important things that you need to do when you go on holiday. Some people may find this quite stressful. But it will be more distressing if you get help up in the airport due to excess baggage. If you want to avoid such situation, find out how you can travel light without leaving any essentials behind through the following tips.

  1. Bring only the necessary items. These are just the basics but they are the most important. These would include:
  2. toiletries (e.g. soap, shampoo, deodorant, lotion, toothbrush, toothpaste, make-up)

    clothing appropriate for the weather in your choice of destination

    first aid kit

    wallet (cash and credit cards)

    comfortable shoes

    documents (passport, identification card, plane tickets)


  3. Do not bring too many clothes. You should only pack enough apparel that will last through your entire holiday. If you are going on a cruise, take at least one formal outfit that is suitable for fine dining. You should also pack a couple of swimwear if you will be hopping from one beach resort to another.
  4. Use the space of your luggage wisely. You can put all the little things in a pouch to avoid clutter. Pack the liquid items separately from those that are dry. Also, it is advisable that you roll your clothes instead of folding them. Doing so will help you save space and reduce wrinkling.
  5. Choose the right suit case. If you are just going away for a couple of days, consider using a carry-all rather than a huge travelling bag. Carrying a big pack can tempt you to bring too many items. Also, choose one with lots of compartments so that you would not have to use another pouch or other smaller bags.
  6. Pack the important things like passports, wallet, and plane tickets in a separate pouch. Make sure that they are accessible but secured. You should also keep a small amount of cash for quick purchases.

Now that you have an idea on how to lessen your burden with regards to baggage, you also need to ensure that you will be staying in a sophisticated, yet comfortable accommodation. That way, your vacation would be totally unforgettable. You can browse through this website and check out a fabulous villa that you can rent in Phuket, Thailand.
