Our top packing tips:

1. Bring Solid colours that you can easily mix and match

2. Always keep you passport, credit cards and money in the same spot.

3. Select outfits that you like, that fit and that you can easily mix and match

4. Bring accessories to jazz up your outfits and make them look different like scarves, jewellery, sarong, a hat, etc.

5. Bring multiple ziplock bags for liquids, and plastic bags for dirty clothes and shoes.

6. Try to limit what you bring with you and travel with carry-on luggage only. (However do research baggage allowances per-airline carrier for each trip.)

7. If possible take less clothes and more money.

8. Don’t pack “maybe” clothes. Bring clothes that you will wear for sure.

9. Bring with you or purchase at your destination a small collapsable shopping bag that folds up to nothing that can hold your extra purchases if needed. This bag can also be used as a souvenir for a friend once you get home.
