If you are soon to be jetting off to a tropical paradise for a much-needed break, there is much to organise, and it is very easy to overlook something important. We have compiled a checklist to ensure that you have everything covered.
- The Best Accommodation – Nothing less than a Phi Phi resort sea view, which is really breath-takingly beautiful, and you can book online.
- Sunscreen – If you have fair complexion, you must be really careful about exposure to the sun. Take more than enough sunscreen and make sure you always apply this prior to going on the beach, as the cool wind tends to make you forget about the sun and before you know it, you are burned.
- Swimming & Snorkel Equipment – Phi Phi Islands are the best places for snorkeling, with a diverse selection of marine life in crystal clear tropical waters, and if you’d like to do some scuba diving, there are schools on the islands. If you don’t own a mask and flippers, order them online, as they are expensive at the resort, and yes, you do need flippers as they make swimming along so much easier.
- Mosquito Repellent – The mozzies are unforgiving in the tropics, and they seem to like European blood, so make sure you have either spray or cream and always apply it prior to going out in the early evenings and mornings, when the mosquitoes are out in force.
- SD Cards – You will be taking hundreds, if not thousands of images, not to mention the video clips, and you don’t want to run out of storage space. You can buy 64Ggb SD cards for only a few dollars and a couple will be more than enough to capture the highlights of your holiday.
- Device Charger & Power Adapter – Thai electricity is 220V, so make sure you have an adapter and chargers for all your digital devices. Search online for a universal power adapter kit and that will work wherever you go, ensuring your devices can be charged.
- Medication – If you are taking any medication, make sure that you have more than enough, and it is an idea to check that your medication is not on Thailand’s restricted medication list. Most travellers carry a small first-aid kit, just in case, and it doesn’t take up much space in your luggage and might come in very handy.
With your flights and the resort booked, you can look forward to a relaxing time in a tropical paradise and recharge your batteries.
