With fall approaching, you might find yourself dreaming of holidays gone by, or even planning your next vacation. Most of us tend to take our vacation during the summer, but if you are someone who takes regular vacations, you probably agree that knowing what to take with you can be the biggest problem when packing. Whether you may be thinking about taking a spontaneous fall trip or are planning in advance for next year, it’s a good idea to consider what kind of things you’ll need to take with you or buy once you are there. If you’re not prepared for what a new country has to throw at you, you could find it ruins your entire trip. Consider some of these ultimate vacation destinations and what you’ll need to check off your packing list before you go.
If you’re planning a vacation in the east, India is a destination that has a lot to offer. The experience you have will vary depending on whereabouts in the country you go, as reading an India travel forum will tell you. You might spend the week attending parties on the beach in Goa, trying local cuisine in Delhi or living in luxury in Kumarakom. However, wherever you go in this vibrant country, you will need to take a few certain things with you. Although it is a country used to welcoming tourists from all over the world, some areas of India are more conservative than others. Therefore, it’s a good idea to invest in some slightly more modest clothes to bring, in case you find yourself in any of these areas. Whilst you’re out there, avoid drinking the tap water as in some places, sanitation is poor and it can make you ill. Instead, buy bottled water every day; multiple bottles if you can. Drinking lots of water will also mean that you avoid the dreaded ‘Delhi belly’ and it will also help you cope with the hot climate too.
China is full of history and culture but is also extremely modern. Therefore, you don’t really need to think about bringing lots of standard amenities with you. You can also afford to pack fairly lightly for a trip to China, as hotel laundry services there are some of the best in the world. However, if you are staying in a big city, you will need to be prepared for a lot of air pollution. Even if you don’t normally use them, take some eye drops with you, as the smog in the air can make your eyes dry and itchy. Also consider taking lip balm and nasal spray for your own comfort, for the same reason.
Spain is one of the sunniest places in the world. Therefore it’s not hard to see why it’s such a popular holiday destination for millions of tourists every year. In fact, many popular destinations have over twelve hours of sunlight during the summer months. For this reason, sunscreen, sunglasses and hats are absolutely essential. Plus, sunscreen is incredibly expensive in Spain, so if you’re only going for a short break it is better to take your own.
