has anybody used lockers/storage units/etc. to keep their gear/purchases while traveling in SE Asia? how expensive is it? how long can you rent them for? where are they?
im bringing my climbing gear which i will want periodically but dont want to lug it around, plus if I do any long term trekking id feel more comfortable if my stuff was under lock and key.
I have left baggage at several GHs while visiting other cities/countries. Never had anything go missing. At most decent hotels/GHs, they have a locked room for bag storage. Take a look at the one where you stay and decide if you are comfortable with the arrangement. Have a strong bag with good locks and trust your fellow man to be honest.
I do not know of any other options. The BKK airport has paid bag storage, but that is not much help if you are quite a distance from BKK. Good Luck.
thanks again mike... youve been a big help since i started planning my trip. if you find yourself in SEA in the next 8 months sent me a PM; id love to buy ya a beer
