Travel Bag –Picking the right travel bag is important which is light weighted yet durable and multipurpose too. The bag should be big enough to carry your entire list of necessary items such as your clothes, travel documents, medicine kit, wallet, toiletries and so on. Try to choose a bag with pockets, they are of great help in withholding things. You can go for either rolling bag or simple duffle bag as per your needs.

Short dresses, hot pants, tees are perfect options for women whereas half pants; tees or jeans will work for men. Do not forget to keep your swimming costume, when travelling in summers and staying at hotel with pool. Make sure you pack your beachwear, flip flops, sun glasses, if travelling to beach destination. Make your clothing simple; do some research on weather of the destination and do not pack.
Medicines – Now a days everything is available at the hotels and nearby market but still it is better to carry all required medicines along with you. Just make a small bag containing first aid kit with few necessary pills. This may include basic medicines for fever, cold and cough, headache, stomach upset, band aid, gastric medicines, ENO or any other medicines as prescribed by the doctor. No one wants to ruin the trip due to health issues, therefore must include medicines in your packing list.
Electronic Gadgets – A Smartphone or digital camera is must to capture lovely moments of your trip. Consider packing portable charges, power adapters, and phone chargers as well. And pack USB cables and extra batteries too; it can be of great help when you run out of battery. Headphones are good to keep for listening to your favorite songs or watching movie in plane or train. Take a go pro in case you have any adventurous or sports activity in your things to do list.
Fashion Accessories –Try to take only required cosmetics and fashion accessories to make your outfit stylish during the trip. Pick your favorite lip shades that will complement all your dresses, beautiful pair of earrings or neckpieces, few rubber bands or hair pins for your hair. Remember to pack nice sling bags and shades to complete your look.
Footwears – Carry extremely comfortable shoes for your trip. Pick your footwear wisely depending on where you are going. For beach vacations, pack sandals and flip flops. Hiking or athletic shoes if going on the trek. Packing stylish sneakers or closed toe shoes is also a great idea. Make sure that whatever you pack, it should be comfortable, should not hurt your feet.
Travel Documents – Often people forget about keeping passport, visa documents and other travel documents while packing for a trip. Imagine yourself at Airport, searching for the passport and visa documents; sure to miss flights. To avoid such cases, get your travel documents in order – travel insurance, identity proofs, residence proofs and any other formality as per the need.
