What to pack when travelling- a must remembering list

First aid kit

What if you are travelling through rocky island and accidentally fall on rock? Or, you are amid a desert and accidentally fall victim to any sickness? Can you imagine the horrible experience that you will be facing without a first aid kit?

Therefore, you should always keep this kit box with you. Even when you are sure that there are available health care centers around your touring spot, don’t ignore the kit.


If you ask us what is the most vital element of today’s what to pack when travelling list, medicine will be our answer. No, we aren’t meaning that you should take the whole pharmacy with you. Instead, we suggest you to pack at least fever and diarrhea medicines.

Why to have these two?

Well, see you are going to a completely new environment where weather may differ. This often causes fever to some tourists. Again, in the new place, your food habit may divert or cooking spices might be different. This often causes stomach issues to some tourists.

We hope, you have had your answer, haven’t you?

Water purification system

We know, we know that you might be wondering how we can recommend you pack such a gigantic accessory.

Actually, here, we aren’t suggesting you to pack your regular size water purification system that you use at home. Instead, our recommendation is to take any travelling water purification system available in the market.

Such a tiny purification system may come to your work while travelling through deep- forest, desert, and hill tracts.

Sun-glass and sunburn moisturizer

If your touring spot is such a place where there is scorching heat of sun, you mustn’t avoid these two. Sun-glass will be much helpful in protecting your eyes from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. On the other hand, sunburn moisturizer will protect your skin so that it doesn’t get burnt.

In case, you are a person who cannot go a second without optics, you should take specially made glasses. Moreover, you should have additional optics for emergency.

Mobile charger and power bank

A common scene of travelling is- tourists not having mobile charger or a broken one asking others for it. Such an embarrassing situation!

This is why we couldn’t but include this to our what to pack when travelling list.

Again, it might happen that you are in such a spot where there is no electricity for charging your mobile. Here comes power bank to bring you off the nasty situation. Therefore, packing power bank with mobile charger is a must.

Brush and comb

You know something- most of the tourists forget these two everyday needed things the most. Ya, you can buy these at any time as these cost the least. But, what if you are on tour in a completely deserted place like desert or hill tract? You are going to miss these two very badly, bro!

Moreover, most of the time tourists are unsure regarding where they might be in the course of the tour. Hence, you should assure the pre-packing of these two cheap yet significant accessories.

Compass and hand light

A compass and hand light are must taking accessories if you are going on an adventurous tour. For example, if you are going to explore any place like deep forest, hill tract, dilapidated houses, you must have these two with you.

Why such strong emphasis?

In reply to this question, we would like to confirm you that without hand light your exploration may remain incomplete. On the contrary, without a compass, you might face difficulty in locating yourself and connecting with others in an emergency.

Language book

Let us assume you to be an Englishman who suddenly decides to pay a visit to Japan where literally none understands English though you understand Japanese a bit. So, what will you do? Should you cancel the plan?

Our sense says you shouldn’t because as a tourist you mustn’t know Japanese very well. Instead, you can have a Japanese language book and use it whenever sharing words with any local personality.

Reading material and music player

You may be surprised to find these two in the list of what to pack when travelling as you are going on the tour just to get rid of such everyday stuff. But, our point is- what is the guarantee of your tour being ace? Can’t you frequently feel bored in the course of travelling?
