2 pairs of 3/4 pants, one onsie, 3 dresses, 2 skirts, 2 bralettes and 10 pairs of panties, 7 tshirts, 4 shorts, a mini towel, 2 fancy outfits, jeans, one long sleeve shirt, a hat, 3 bathing suits, 4 pairs of socks

+i threw away a long sleeve yellow cardigan and one pink tshirt

-i bought another long sports pants, a pink dress, a long sleeve shirt, a turquoise sports set composed shorts and a shirt


Jewelry is only 3 pairs of earrings, a watch and a few necklaces and rings, nothing expensive! Anti malaria, diarrhea and throat medicine also advil and aspirin. A hairbrush,plasters for feet, elastics, other cremes from Korea, sun creme, shaver, electricity adapter and charger, makeup palette and nail file, disinfectant, face powder, 2 perfumes + toothbrush (not on photo) +a little lock and key for lockers in hostels


Flip flops, more fancy flip flops, hiking sneakers, everyday shoes


2 pairs of sunglasses(later i lost one and the other one broke), my passports and bank cards, insurance and vaccine documents in a folder, a notepad from my sister to document anything on my mind, 2 pens for immigration forms, epilator, a little purse, wet napkins+ a bigger orange purse (not on photo), eyebrow tweezers

Here you have it guys:

  1. You really need the pens!
  2. Learn by heart your passport number, it is asked all the time
  3. No need at all to buy sim cards at destinations, use the wifi
  4. Bring a raincoat
  5. Bring a traveler towel
  6. You don’t need regular pills like Advil or Tylenol, they also sell them over there.¬†You don’t need Malaria pills, save your money
  7. Buy an international adapter!
  8. Mosquito spray, wet napkins, sun protector are useful
  9. You can bring another fancy dress, but not that many cosmetics-the sun makes everyone Hot! You don’t need a hat.
  10. Bring More warm clothes
