The Noob Traveler Packing for Bangkok
I finally decided to take the plunge and go to South East Asia for vacation.
It's the second half of Summer break and the plan is for Bangkok. To see the many different things that this gritty gem of a town has to offer. Temples, fighting, museums, tuk tuks, it's all in there.
Speaking of all in there. Packing is always an interesting part of travel. I remember preparing to come to Korea. 2 huge suitcase, 1 medium, 1 carry-on, and 1 backpack. Not enough. Looking back I can only think of one question for myself. "Self, why did you bring all this crap?!" For any of you preparing to come to Korea and wondering what to leave behind, I did a vlog about it. Give it a look before you start packing.
For traveling to Bangkok I went the opposite direction. For a 5 day adventure, my goal was to fit everything into my backpack. Not a travel backpack either. A school-type book bag backpack...thing.
The good news is it's summer so the most minimum clothing is required. Especially considering that I'll be walking around nearly the entire day. I also don't want to try to fit so much into the bag that it's going to give me TMJ issues from straining. The goal isn't to see how small a bag I can bring. It's to travel lightly. No carry-ons or suitcases or anything like that. Just me and my school backpack.
Clothes are not the only necessities. To travel to another country, there are a number of things needed to cross borders. Without getting too wordy, I did a quick video showing exactly what I packed. Maybe it will be useful for some noob travelers like myself.
