    Luggage and bags: Luggage and bags are very cheap and good quality so use old cases and bags, then buy new.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear cotton to keep cool. I always wear comfortable sandals as otherwise your feet will get too hot. Sandals are very cheap to buy.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Everything you need is here. I suggest buying tiger balm as it helps headaches, aches and pains, bites and is generally a very handy thing to have. I always make sure I come home with a few jars. The one with the red label is slightly stronger. It is all natural and very safe.

    Miscellaneous: Do travel light as you will want to buy so much. Clothes are very cheap and the choice is superb. Beware though, if you are a large size, you may have difficulty in having a choice as Thai people are small and dainty, so their clothes tend to cater for this. However, go to MBK the large department store as they have large sizes there.

    Wonderful shopping
