Before each journey, most people study the weather of their places to know what to bring and what to leave at home. Clothes are very important but do not bring it as many as possible. Pick essential clothes that you actually need. For examples, you are exploring temples, do you need to bring shorts and bikini? Try to collect carefully which is the best for you in your trip and bring it together.
Don’t put them into your checked luggage in airport. When you reach your hotel, include them in a safe place or have receptionists kept them for you.
If you are musicians and need inspiration to create the one-of-a-kind feeling, music instruments such as guitar, brass, trumpet, and bowed strings are necessary. However, if your journey is to discover and enjoy the new destination, put all of them at home. They are not necessary to go with your trip.
Of course, each hotel provides you all of them: shampoo, body lotion and hairdryer. Yet I am sure that you also really love to use your favorite brand, so bring the proper size container to use as you are at home.
