There are many travel information which you need to know before you leave to travel to any country, for any details please ask your travel consultant, then you will be answered full, but here under is a general guide for any your reference.
Once you arrive at your destination you will rarely ever have to carry your luggage as your guide will generally assist you, but that said DH Travel would still recommended that you travel relatively light.
Try to use a slightly oversized bag. If you over pack your bag before departure you will inevitably find you will struggle to repack everything as well as the first time. This is especially important on faster moving itineraries where you spend just one or two nights at each destination.
If you are travelling as a couple it is also an idea to share bags, at least with your essentials, as if you are unfortunate enough to have a bag lost or stolen, you will not have lost everything.
If your bag is of standard design and colour, use something to easily identify it on the carousel, such as a coloured band or sticker to make it stand out.
Make sure you lock your bag, it will become less of a target for thieves and will be less likely to open accidentally during transit. Combination locks are best as you will never lose the keys!
Small first aid kit with antiseptic and compression bandage
Camera with spare batteries or charger
Torch (some destinations we travel may have electricity outages)
Tissues or wipes (some of the female toilets are not up to Australian standards!)
Female sanitary products, as in less well traveled countries these can sometimes be hard to find.
If you wear glasses take a spare pair as in remote areas they will be hard to replace, but do take a copy of your optical prescription, as in the major cities you can pick up a new or spare pair at much cheaper rates than in Australia!
Ensure your mobile phone is only accessible with a pin code so in case you lose it no one will be able to use it before you get chance to cancel it. Check with your network provider before departure to ensure you will have coverage in all the countries you are travelling to. If there is not coverage you can always pick up a local SIM card, your guide will assist you with this if necessary. Don’t forget your charger and electrical adaptor.
In most parts of Asia when visiting practising temples such as in Bangkok or Luang Prabang you will be required to remove your shoes before entering. For obvious reasons slip on and off footwear is most convenient.
One or two of the more upper class restaurants and bars do not allow males entry in open toed footwear (if it is a restaurant or bar we recommend we will endeavour to warn you in advance).
If you are visiting older ruins and temples such as Sukhothai, Angkor Wat or Wat Phou we recommend you wear comfortable well fitting sports shoes.
When trekking in the more mountainous regions such as Chiang Mai or Kalaw you should wear well worn in, comfortable sports shoes or in the rainy season lightweight, breathable worn in hiking boots.
Apart from the major cites and established beach resorts there is little reason to pack high heel shoes.
When visiting temples, particularly in Buddhist countries you are required to dress conservatively with covered legs and shoulders. Singlet tops should not be worn, T –shirts and short sleeved shirts and blouses are acceptable.
Most of Asia is tropical, warm and humid for most of the year where lightweight natural fibre clothing is best. Destinations that can have chilly spells are best dealt with by dressing with layers as opposed to heavy items so you can peel off as the days warm up and the temperature changes.
For specific advice please ask your travel consultant before departure or your guide.
