    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Light, easy to manage luggage or back pack. I saw this woman checking out of her room with her boyfriend, and she had a bag big enough to hold half a household. Needless to say her boyfriend didn't look too impressed about carrying it.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light clothing, shoes if you want them but I would suggest something cooler.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A little medical kit always can come in handy, because you never know.

    Photo Equipment: Digital or video camera for all the beach/scenery photos.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sunglasses for sure and sunscreen is a must.

    Miscellaneous: Beacause of the periodic power outages, maybe some batteries might want to be taken. Especially people with cell phones, compters ect. *****REMEMBER YOU WILL NEED AN ADAPTER TO CONVERT TO 120 VOLT.*****

    Don't bring too much!

    by Loops Written Apr 5, 2004

    Luggage and bags: I could have got by on half the things I took - I took long trousers and didn't wear them - I spent the whole time in shorts and t-shirts, perhaps just putting on a nicer top in the evening. It's not a posh place and unless you're staying at an upmarket place, then don't bother bringing anything too fancy

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I took trainers and only wore them once - unless you are into trekking to the caves or along forest paths, you don't really need sturdy shoes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: you can get most toiletries/sun cream etc in the mini markets they have there.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: We took snorkel equipment, although on the trip to Ko Rok that we went on, it was provided.

    Bring Your Sunglass

    by aniquez Written Dec 14, 2004

    Miscellaneous: Not beacuse of the sun rays or anything, its for you to use when you ride the bike. The road is still very much under construction, you need the sunglass or even better your goggles (lol) or even a mask.

    And please dont wear white shirts ... it will turn red at the end of your bumpy journey !
