I had a great time traveling around SE Asia with my fiancé! It had been a dream of mine for a while but since it is very different from the surroundings I am accustomed to, I was a bit unsure about how to pack prior to our trip so I thought I should share a few things I learned along the way and wish I had known before.
To put our trip into context, we were away for about six weeks from the beginning of October to mid-November and visited Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Malaysia, with the majority of our time spent in Thailand. Hope these bits help ease future backpackers!
Just to clarify, these are things we did or wish we had done. Tons of people do things completely differently, it’s all up to the preference of the travelers. I’ll admit, the following is a little wordy, but I prefer to look at it as thorough!
