    i have no idea what to pack everyone keeps saying pack light but its a bit hard when ur a girl lol!!! r u guys bringing suit cases or backpacks ?

    I recently found a backpack with wheels, so im gonna call that a WIN and i am not packing light. Haha. I think its usually 50/50 for people bringing backpacks or suitcases.

    People say pack light for asia so you can buy stuff there, but My last contiki was so busy that i never had time to shop lol! So i figure ill just bring everything i need so i dont end up wearing dirty clothes by the second week.

    I’m bringing a wheeled suitcase… and I don’t think I’ll be packing light either – it’s definitely not something I’m good at haha.
    Don’t worry at all about traveling solo! I did a Contiki a few years ago by myself and had the best time!! There were actually quite a few solo travelers and you’re with the group the whole time, so you just meet awesome people from all around the world!
    Only a few days to go :)

    Hey guys! I am headed on the Asian Adventure on July 22nd, and as i was looking for others on these forums i cam across the fact that you did the same trip not too long ago! Would love to hear about! What are some of the highlights? things to look out for? Can’t wait for my trip, hopefully theirs nothing but amazing things! Looking forward to hearing back! :) – GREG

    P.S. In the end? What’s my best move? Suitcase or backpack?
