Adjustable/very comfortable shoes
Miscellaneous: My latest arrival here has just reminded me that the humidity causes a lot of fluid retention in my feet and legs until my body adjusts after a few weeks.
Ensure you bring shoes with an adjustable strap or ones that are very comfortable with some extra room in them if you are likely to be affected by it as shoes get so tight and uncomfortable otherwise.

Evian Mineral Water Spray
Miscellaneous: I take a can of Evian spray with me every time I fly. It is not only useful for cooling off when out in the heat, but sometimes I find the air on the planes to be so dry that my throat and nostrils begin to burn and my skin and hair dries out. I just spray the Evian into the air and onto my face for instant relief.
The small, light and inexpensive can fits into any bag easily. A travel must-have.
Luggage and bags: Bring minimal clothes. You can get many bargain items at phuket town (not the beach areas though, .... typically about 50% dearer)
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Just wear what u like most. a pair of sandals may b appropriate when u go to the beach
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Good to bring some basic supplies. Not that u cant get but language barrier exists. Most Thai speak very little English.
Photo Equipment: Lots of walking ..... carry something simple. I regret taking my SLR. Plenty of photo shops so dont worry bout films, battery n processing labs
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Unpredictable rain. Carry a big plastic bag, just in case. While travelling from Phuket to Hat Yai, i kept my bag in the bus luggage compartment. The bag was half soaked by the time i arrived in hat yai.
Miscellaneous: Near the beach areas, food is comparatively expensive. Buy bread and jam at one of the many sundry shops near songthaew station (marketplace) in Phuket. Budget hotels tend 2 b a bit far from shops. 7-11 convenient stores can b found at all major beach destinations
- Budget Travel
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Being a beach resort, swimming gear goes without saying; along with one's own goggles for swimming at own leisure (instead of renting snorkelling mask etc).
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: An essential "medical" supply would be anti-seasickness pills for those prone to it and maybe some medicated oil to sooth headaches due to the speed of the boats.
Photo Equipment: A shock-/dust-/water-proof (up to maybe 15metres) camera would come in handy for those underwater moments. Otherwise, an ordinary digital one would suffice.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Insect repellant is a necessity! Where there's a beach, or maybe forest, there's bound to be vampiric insects that prefer my blood type. Sun screen/block lotions would also be compulsory.
Miscellaneous: Lastly, a relak attitude would definitely help!
Luggage and bags: an empty suitcase
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: what you have on at the airport, and your own undies.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: all personal products are expensive in thailand so bring your own, and alot of sunscreen for the day and insect repellant for night.
Photo Equipment: camera and heaps of film, or memory cards.
Miscellaneous: duty free bourbon, thai bourbon isn't the nicest.
Luggage and bags: Take a small bag only and a empty one to bring home everything you buy
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good pair of walking shoes and sandals is about all you will need for your feet.
Cotton shorts, skirts shirts is all you will need.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Make sure that you pack all your Medical supplies with you, they may not be avalable
Photo Equipment: Take all your film with you as its a bit espensive to buy there but developing is pretty cheap.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Towell is about all you will need here on the beach.
Miscellaneous: I found that because of the humidity i sweated a lot between the legs, one way to solve this was to buy a pair (severel pairs) of fisherman trousers made of cotton and not wear any jocks, worked for me.
All You need is
Luggage and bags: Rucksack
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: T-shirt, sandals,shorts
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Tothbrush, the medical care in Thailand are exellent!
Photo Equipment: Camera ofcourse and loads of film
Miscellaneous: Money (Credit-cardmachines everywhere), Buy all you need in Thailand, dont bather to bring a lot of stuff from home, buy a new suitcase or two and fill them with whatever You need
Luggage and bags: An empty suitcase if you intend to shop!!!!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light casual clothes and sandals. Leave the makeup, heels and designer jeans at home!!!!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: All readily available. In fact toiletries and pharmacuticals are very cheap in Thailand. If you use regular prescription drugs yiu may be able to buy them over the counter at a fraction of the cost at home. My sister uses special psoriosis cream which is very expensive but was able to buy several tubes over the counter for less than 1 tube at home.
Photo Equipment: Take what you need with you.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sarong for the beach you can wear it over bather, use it as a towel to either dry yourself or put on your bed. A 101 uses.
Miscellaneous: If you need to see a Doctor as we did the Wattana International Clinic was very good it cost me approx $US20 to see the DR and a prescription filled for antibiotics. 78 Taweewong Rd Patong 66 76 341 344 excellent service.
Miscellaneous: Where ever you go in the world, I would highly recommend keeping a 'travel journal' whilst you are on your holiday. I found it to be very handy when recalling specific events on your travels, especially a few years later when hunting down info for VT.
This travel journal was given to me for my 21st birthday, a week before I left for Thailand. I also stuck a lot of receipts and little bits and pieces from the trip in here.
Miscellaneous: I take sugar lumps on holiday for the monkeys and elephants...they love them and you get great photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: T-shirts is essential... and more bikinis!!!! I didnt bring enough bikini so i bought some there... anyway, bikinis are cheap there..
Slip Slop Slap
Miscellaneous: In Phuket the day's heat can reach into the high temperatures and the sun can burn you to a crisp so dont forget your hat, sunscreen and close knit clothing so you do get burnt through the material.
