First up- apologies if this is in the wrong forum. Mods, feel free to move it!
I leave for 10 weeks in SE Asia very early on Wednesday morning- 4 weeks in Thailand, 3 weeks in Laos and 2+1/2 weeks in Cambodia.
Has anyone got any last minute tips for me, or suggestions as to must haves (that I might've forgotten)?
I think I have the main items covered- have a decent backpack, a few changes of clothes, my camera, my travel insurance, my guidebook and enough local currency for the first week!
A lot of people seem to say the less you bring the better, but I hope I haven't made any glaring omissions as its my first time....
Thanks you guys. Just about packed all the necessaries, although I did manage to leave my camera at home :(
Have been here about 10 days and its safe to say anything I didn't bring has been very easy to come by. Staying beside a huge shopping centre in Patong, Phuket definitely helped!!!
Buy a cheapo camera while you're away - some of the best pics I have are from giving my camera to local children and letting them snap. You get a totally different perspective. And because it's a cheap one, you won't be worried about them damaging it (although mine never has been).
