Offline maps

Download an offline map of the area as soon as you get some wifi so that you have some directions if you get lost.

Carry plastic bags

They can come in immensely andy if you have a pair of wet clothes or some used garments that you would not want your other clothes to touch.

Flexible adapter

Roll up

To save space, roll up your clothes while packing, or wrap them around your valuables for added protection plus space-saving.

All about hygiene

Carry your own sanitiser, mask, paper towel and toilet roll for maximum protection, as not all places may have a proper bathroom setup.
