Hi Guys,

I have been a member of here for 2/3 years and have finally booked my trip of a lifetime!

I was just wondering if you had any advice on what to take clothing/toiletries etc - everyone keeps saying pack light!, how much money i should be looking at taking (very approx), and just for any general pointers really... I work NON stop (haven't had a proper day off since mid of Nov last year!) so i really haven't had a chance to look into everything that i wanted to yet - and i'm leaving with my friend 31/1/13!! So i'm really panicking!

We're doing a month's excursion with STA Travel after we have visited Hong Kong, where we will be visiting Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos, then after that we're hoping to Island hop in Thailand, then onto Malaysia, Singapore and poss Indonesia if time... We have a open ticket.

Thank you very much in advance,

Ella

This site helped me massively to know what to buy for my trip to Asia in February.

Money-wise, it's recommended you take around £800 per month to the countries you're going to. I've chosen to take a travel money card, which has no charges for withdrawing money abroad but there's many options - some banks have decent rates on regular cards too.
Hope this helps.
