A day bag is a bag that is big enough to fit in what you may need for a day’s sightseeing (for example a backpack, a shoulder bag, a big hand bag or a ‘man bag’).

Everyone has different styles, some guys will leave the accommodation in the morning with nothing but a camera and a wallet in their pockets. Others like to be prepared for anything and will pack water bottles, umbrellas, cameras, jackets, make up, anti-bacterial wipes, pens, notes, diaries, maps, postcards, cell phones and almost anything and everything else they need into a day bag.

The size of a day bag, if you choose to use one, is entirely dependent on your personal style and what you choose to take out with you on your days in the cities.

Some tours also use overnight bags and you day bag can also double as your overnight bag.
