If you're choosing between a backpack and a case
Bring a backpack if you will be arriving by train and need to get a bus. The temporary bus station is no longer next to the train station and you will need to walk a good distance to get to the buses. Best to do with a backpack and not a case! It's best to bring all kinds of clothes because the weather is unpredictable. Always bring waterproofs. You sohuld be able to get just about anything here. Be cafeful though because to get certain medicines you may need a prescription and you need to be registered with a doctor. You should be able to get any photo equipment here. In the city centre there are many photography shops.
Be careful your gear doesn't get stolen though! If you want to take a stroll, always take waterproofs just in case! Bring a camera!
