It is nice to escape cold winter season by having a long vacation in a tropical country. But before that, you should know what to bring with you when you are travelling.
The first thing you need to do is to look for a fair-sized luggage. The size of luggage you are going to buy depends on how long you are staying in that country. You can bring a couple of clothes and just rely on the laundry services of the hotel or the inn you are staying. It is better to limit the number of clothes you are bringing with you so you still have room in your luggage for presents and souvenirs.
You would want to bring the following things as well:
1. Light clothes
The temperature in these countries is usually high all year long, with the exception of rainy seasons. Buy clothes with fresh fabrics such as cotton. Do not bring clothes made from wool or even leather. You would not want to feel sweaty and grimy while wearing them.
2. Sensible shoes
A pair of sensible shoes is needed. You would want your shoes to feel light on the feet. But you should also choose one that can protect you from all elements. Make sure it is comfortable. Don’t bring new shoes with you. New shoes are usually uncomfortable at first. You would not want to have blisters on your feet while travelling.
3. Flip flops
You might also want to bring flip flops. Flip flops can keep your feet fresh especially when you are travelling during summer season in the tropics. The leaves of your slippers should be made from comfortable rubber. Make sure you are not allergic to rubber materials.
It usually rains in the tropics especially after a hot and humid day. While you can certainly buy when you get there, you would want to be prepared all the time. You might get caught in the rain while you are finding your hotel.
5. Sun screen
UVB rays are more abundant in tropical countries. Protect your skin from the sun using sun screen. This product should protect you from both UVA and UVB rays to keep your skin healthy and strong.
6. Sun glasses
A nice pair of sun glasses can protect your eyes from the glare of the sunlight. You can keep it in your hand-carry bag so you can just fish it out when you need it.
