What 7 Things Do You Always Pack When You Travel?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Never travel anywhere without my bumbag lol... it's flat so goes under the t shirt / vest.

Oh how I have been mocked for it but I'd lose my marbles without it.
You never have any problems getting your bumbag full of marbles through customs?

Nope. Big difference between a Bum Bag and a Money Belt.

There's another choice: the money pouch, which can hang around your neck as well as go around your waist.

2. safari jacket (pockets and more pockets), plus hiking shorts/cargo pants for even more pockets

3. combination notebook/namecard holder w/pen

4. phone with 1500+ tunes (Aerosmith to ZZ Top), plus external battery pack

5. money clip full of "small money" (avoid taking out wallet)

6. kettle, ground coffee, cup and caphe phin filtre, and a roll of paper towels (for spills and tidying up)

7. tweezers

The one I use:Pacsafe coversafe secure waist wallet features a slash proof wire reinforced belt concealed buckle and removable water resistant pocket. Some of these belts also have RFID blockers as well. I have a small RFID blocker pouch which fits inside.
