Traveling with too much luggage can be a burden therefore bring as little as possible. Additional clothing, if needed, can always be bought on the way.
T-shirts and shoes are inexpensive, but it has to be mentioned that shoes from size 10 upwards are quite rare and will cost the same as in Europe. You can buy tailored trousers for approximately 300Baht upwards.

Almost every hotel provides towels so just bring two spare ones. Mosquito nets are available in many hotels and
guest houses and will be given on request.
It doesn't matter if you travel with a backpack, a travel bag or a suitcase: we always recommend to bring a spacious shoulder bag or a day pack. It is useful for short trips. Your main luggage can be also deposited in most hotels and even for a longer periods of time. They may charge a small fee.

Alarm clock: Some buses leave early in the morning.
Sleeping bag: In some hotels or guest houses a sleeping bag might be more comfortable to sleep on. Or just a bed sheet will be sufficient.
Sewing kit: To sew on a button is very quick. To find a needle and thread takes usually much more time.
Plastic string: Useful for hanging laundry and to fix the mosquito net.
Plastic bags: Various sizes. For dirty clothes and to keep dry when traveling by boat, to protect your camera, money and
