What to Prepare for an International Trip

April 9, 2013 1:11am CST
Hi guys. I am going on vacation to Singapore next month and I would be going alone. This is my first international trip and I am not sure what to pack, what things could be useful to bring, etc. Please give me advice. I will be staying with my cousin who lives there for 15 days.

If you are bringing electronics like your laptop and phone make sure you pack a power adapter because the plugs there might be different to the ones in your country. Find out for sure otherwise you might be without for those 15 days. Take your camera of course, I always take mine on the plane and not in the suitcase. Make sure you check your baggage allowance from the airline so you don't pack too much and get extra charges. Otherwise just pack suitable clothes

hi, bunny. have a nice trip and i hope you enjoy your stay in singapore. before you start packing, check your ticket regarding your baggage allowance. make sure that you do not exceed this since extra weight is expensive. you are usually allowed up to 7 kilos in your hand carried luggage. do not put liquid items there. singapore has a warm climate so you need to bring summer clothes and footwear. since you will be staying with your cousin, you can do your laundry in her house so you do not need to bring plenty. do not forget your toothbrush and toothpaste. i think your cousin will provide you with the other toiletries. sometimes those who live abroad would request for some native foods. if you're going to bring some, pack this very well and put it in the luggage for check in. your passport and money should always be with you. i suggest that you wear a light jacket with a large pocket for the trip so you can put your passport and money there.

I have been to Singapore a number of times. Yes, indeed, it is a beautiful City, many places to see. I see you have received good suggestions and advice for preparing for the visit. I would just add one. Be prepared for rain. Just about every evening, it rains.

I think Singapore is a safe and clean country, so you don't have to be worried about your trip so much. Of course at first you shall pack your passport, airplane ticket, credit card, cash and wallet well. You don't have to bring more clothes since it is a tropical country. And you shall also bring a camera.
