Photo Equipment: I still don't like to bring Digital SLR Camera in my travels as these cameras as to bulky and cumbersome to operate and you must change the lens often and since I'm not a professional Photographer, prefer to bring a pocket ultrazoom camera that you can combine taking pictures and videos at the same time like an Olympus SZ MR-31 and a water proof camera like the olympus 810 tough for the beach and water sport pictures. Bringing point and shoot camera is still the best option for the traveller and having a pocket ultra zoom camera is the best! also bring extra camera batteries and charger as you don't want your camera to lose power while taking photos and videos as these memories are priceless only of you have records of them, so keep on shooting pictures and videos with plenty of memory space and extra battery power.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: This is a must if you are Going on a Muti Island Tour in Phang Nga Bay more so if you plan to be in the center of the many beach activities that are available in the beaches in Phang Nga Bay area and will go on daylong beach bumming or swimming. if you have a fair complexion and is afraid of getting sun burned or having an accidental tan when walking around the hot Phang Nga Bay area, then it is best to bring sun block lotion or spray with you that is small and portable so that you can splash it easily to your face, neck, shoulers and hand! you can do this every 2 hour interval to lessen the chance to get a sun burn or a tan. if you are here in phuket for more than 4 days, then bring a larger container of sunblock! as you would use it more often! ir just buy at the convenience store around Phuket.
