Packing for Asian Adventure

I was just wondering if there was any specific items that people would recommend bringing on the Asian Adventure tour. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi Christina,
    I am going on the Asian Adventure as well. I haven’t been to Asia but everyone I’ve talked to says LOTS of bug spray with a high DEET%. Light clothing, good sandals for hiking (skip the runners its too hot and humid), a lot of people I know put together a first aid kit which is a good idea. I’m packing really light in terms of clothing, stuff is so cheap there anyway.
    Hope this helps,

    Charmaine

    I did this tour last year – It was amazing, you’ll love it :)
    Defiantly take bug spray!! Wouldn’t really worry about a first aid kid. Hydralite was pretty handy so you don’t get dehydrated.. something for your stomach if the food doesn’t agree with you (they can be a life saver).
    You can wear thongs pretty much anywhere, that’s all the people on my tour really wore. Light long sleeved top and pants, you’ll need them for the temples.

    & make sure you try the street food in Bangkok, so so yummy :) :)

    Having been to Africa many time and the Amazon last year, I swear by Ultrathon as a bug repellent. It’s a lotion instead of a spray so stays on for much longer. You can usually find it in REI or other outdoor stores.

    Back things for hot weather. Sun could be very hot in Asia. something comfortable for walking, swimming gear (lots of swimming).

    Small amount of bug repellent will do it as you can purchase more of it in Asia. Sun cream is also handy.

    Have fun Asia is great.
