Thailand: What did I pack?
So, I’m going to Thailand!
In this post I will share with you some of the essentials that you need to remember to pack on your next trip to Thailand, Southeast Asia or any other warm beach destination that has the same climate range as Thailand. Firstly you have to excuse the fact that I am the type of person who would rather have everything I need than just the bare minimum so this list will be comprehensive. Get yourself a cup of tea and let’s go through the list of items I have in my Thailand suitcase. Also I made a video watch it at the end!
So if you follow me on Instagram you would know that I love fashion and beauty so it’s a real challenge not to pack all my cutest outfits without going over the luggage limit. Luckily for me, i’m flying Emirates and they offer 2 x 23kg checked baggage which is a lot!
Anyway, I just made sure I took a couple of outfits, so no random t-shirts that can’t be paired with a specific skirt or pair of shorts or anything like that. See the list of items you need to take with you, and hey, if you forget something you can always buy it when you get there!
Thailand to-pack clothing list:
- Slip-on shoes x2 pairs
- Cozzies (two bikinis,a one piece and an extra bikini top)
- Towel? (i’ll buy a sarong there, it dries quicker and will be lighter to carry around.)
- Cover-ups (lots, I’ll pretty much double these up as dresses)
- Shorts (x3 pairs)
- Vests (x4 )
- Dresses (x3 including one nice one for dinner)
- Comfortable sneakers (in black, for hiking)
- Warm top and leggings (coz yo never know and to wear on the flight back)
Luggage and Tech
I don’ t really plan on taking too much tech and bags. First of all, I was told to be careful with small sling bags in Bangkok because there is a reputation of bag snatchers and backpacks get slit if you aren’t careful.
That being said I will take a leather backpack with me, coz it’s more convenient, I will probably carry it on my back in Phuket, Krabi and Khao Lak and when I move to Bangkok I’ll have to be extra vigilant. My backpack is from Rowdy by the way, I think they’re amazing and affordable. Because I plan on shooting a look book(yay! look out for it), my boyfriend will take his camera with him and I will use my phone and my Instax Mini camera and that will be it! Here’s my list of luggage
- Trolley (obviously for all my checked baggage)
- Backpack (to keep all my stuff during the day)
Toiletries & Other
- Waterproof makeup
- Hand Sanitizer
- Meds (pain pills. tummy tablets, flu meds,)
- Insect repellent
- Plasters (in case you get hurt)
- A map and copy of Lonely Planet Thailand
- Wet wipes
Winenot! As long as it’s in the checked baggage and wrapped carefully it’s fine to take along. Lol actually wine is very expensive in Thailand so we plan on taking just two bottles to enjoy as we relax by the pool or wherever is nice 🙂
