    Clothes with Hidden Pockets

    by Aptypo Updated Sep 28, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: There are various ways in which people carry money and important documents in hidden pockets in their clothes. Another option is cotton UNDERWEAR WITH POCKETS to store the buffer cash. Tailors in any part of the world will sew a small ZIPPERED POCKET inside the front of your trousers.

    Bra

    by Aptypo Written May 9, 2003

    Luggage and bags: Sometimes bras made the headlines. When Madonna's famous pointy bra - designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for her Blonde Ambition tour - fetched more than four times its expected value and went under the hammer for a massive £14,100 at a Christie's auction in London. When a survey by Marks and Spencer was published confirming that more than 90% of British women are currently wearing a wrong-sized bra. The study found that more than half of the 2,000 women measured are a bigger cup size than they thought making the national average 36C... Let's draw a conclusion: Bra can for women be a good place to hide money!

    Luggage and bags: For women, I highly suggest carrying a small messenger bag. You can find the perfect size in the men's department at Benetton, H&M or other metrosexual stores. The don't look touristy like backpacks, but they also don't look like targets for a purse snatching, as you can wear them across your chest. I manage to stuff a lot of souvenirs, beret, gloves, etc. into mine to keep-up with the ever changing weather from morning to night.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Get a rain proof, tailored, trench coat that comes with a warm, zippered lining that can be removed. This coat carries me from warm, rainy days to cold, snowy nights anywhere I go in the world. Then, buy some nice leather, riding boots because they are stylish, won't hurt your feet too much after 8 hours of sightseeing and keep your feet and legs dry from the rain and snow.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring little packs of tissue paper. Some tourist spots run out of toilet paper, or the bathroom matron hands you such a small wad, you don't have enough. It also helps for runny noses, impormptu napkins or to wipe down wet, bus seats.

    Packing List

    by mocca Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Just take what you always take when traveling.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Shorts, shirts, shoes, sandals, pants, sweaters, jackets. Mexico lays on a high altitude, so it can get cold at night.
    And also bring some fance clothes if you go dance the salsa or merengue

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Diarhea pills are a must like anywhere in the tropics. And just add all the normal stuff you always carry around with you, and if you have astma, bring extra stuff for it, or avoid Mexico city because of the smog

    Photo Equipment: Wide angle lenses are the best to take because it is an city, also a 100-135 lens will be handy for photographing people, and unless you go out the city and in the nature, leave your tele lenses at home.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In general, everything imported (made outside of Mexico) is very expensive here. More expensive than if purchased back home. Things that are made in Mexico can be good deals here, but don't come here looking for bargains in clothing. Clothes here are either cheap and crappy or nice and very expensive. Same goes for shoes, though you can find some ok shoes that are made in Mexico for a good price. Also, save your shorts for the beach. No one really wears them on the streets here. Bring some nice clothes if you are going to nice restaurants as most men will wear a jacket for dinner.

    Luggage and bags: Don't forget to bring a jacket when in Mexico City or anywhere in the mountains, it can get quite cold as it is high.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good walking shoes are a must, the cobblestones are uneven. There are holes in the streets and sidewalks so always look down when you walk. One woman tripped and was lucky to not hurt herself.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I don't leave home without my Pepto Bismol.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Adventure Travel

    Miscellaneous: If you have a large group and are planning to rent more than one car – it is very important to pack a set of walkie-talkies! Locals are not shy when driving and your group will get separated within the first two minutes. We had to drive two cars for about 10 hours and these were lifesavers!

    Things for Packing

    by Aptypo Updated May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Items that enable you to bring along the other items as effortlessly as possible. A very important list. Are you ready?

    CLOTHING
    This list describes clothes most of us are quite likely to bring with us. Comfortable clothing, think layers so that you can take off and add clothes as the weather changes throughout the day. Outerwear as necessary, a lightweight rain jacket for late spring, summer and early fall; a heavier jacket for other months. An outfit for a special evening at a nice restaurant or the theater. If you're spending more than a day in Mexico City, check out the entire list for other necessary items.

    Unisex Clothes

    by Aptypo Written May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: UNDERWEAR
    Can be obtained very cheaply in many towns, but if you prefer the western style, you'd better get a basic set of these at home before you go. Definitely stay with cotton, or possibly silk, if you can afford it.

    Socks

    by Aptypo Written May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good quality SOCKS can be a blessing. Wool is best. If you are hiking, be sure to bring a lot of socks in case the weather is bad. Remember that if it is hot summer at your travelling destination, then you are unlikely to use any socks at all! Also useful for hinding money.

    Shirts

    by Aptypo Written May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Its soft, lightweight fabric wicks moisture and dries quickly. Well-placed vents help keep you cool. Roll-up sleeve tabs to convert from long to short sleeves in seconds. The machine washable shirt also provides 30+ UPF sun protection with an adjustable sun collar, hidden security pocket and pleated chest pockets.
    There is almost no place on the globe where you can be without a good warm SHIRT. Bring one or two tough flannel shirts, but leave them at home if the travelling destination is really hot.

    Shorts

    by Aptypo Written May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: This is a must unless you travel in cold climates. SHORTS can double as SWIMMING TRUNKS. Don't use SPORT SHORTS made for running, since their length may be too short to be considered decent clothing in some places.

    Shawl

    by Aptypo Updated May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wrap it around your shoulders for extra style or a bit of warmth, or slip it over your head when culture or weather requires some cover. Its large classic checkerboard pattern dresses up even the most basic outfit. Hand washable, line dry or dry clean.

    Track-Suit

    by Aptypo Updated May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A light TRACK-SUIT works in two ways: both as something you can wear when you are washing your other clothes, and as good clothes when it gets cold. They take up a lot of space in your backpack though.

    Raincoat

    by Aptypo Written May 15, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It takes up a lot of space in your luggage. Leave it at home, unless you are heading for cold climate. Some people prefer a RAIN JACKET or PONCHO. It packs very small, is light, and doubles for a ground sheet or simple tent. You can buy one at many camping stores.
