  2. Follow the checklist above when packing and getting your things in order.
  3. Create a backup your photos on a computer or memory stick as soon as possible to avoid losing them.
  4. Bring an extra camera battery.
  5. Pre-plan your outfits to avoid running around trying to pack everything at once.
  6. Save your hotel room number and its address on your phone.
  7. Pack an umbrella.
  8. Separate your sources of money to avoid someone stealing all of your money at the same time. For example, keep your cards in your shirt pocket, cash in a bag etc.
  9. Ladies, always pack a shawl or sarong. Walking around in a swimsuit isn’t appropriate everywhere.
  10. Wear noise cancelling headphones on the bus, perfect for long journeys.
  11. Roll your clothes when packing.
