Your students’ educational travel program is approaching fast; itinerary, visas, and documents are all arranged – now it’s time to pack! To help you get started, here is our ultimate packing list for a school travel program to Asia.
Water bottle (1 litre capacity). Across all of our trips, we encourage students and participants to reduce their use of single-use plastic. Filtered water is supplied by Khiri Campus and will be readily available on our programs.
A good daypack big enough to carry personal items such as a water bottle, camera, hat or sweater.
Fleece/sweater for traveling. Busses and trains can get quite cold from the air-conditioning, plus during the winter months the temperature may drop and become quite cool, so be sure to check the weather conditions of the country you are visiting.
Comfortable walking shoes, such as trainers. These are better than boots as they dry quicker if you get wet.
Sandals/flip flops are useful for downtime, or if you will be near water.
2 Long trousers. Cotton is fine, but lightweight synthetics are better for hot, humid or wet climates.
2-3 Long-sleeved shirts to protect your arms from the sun and insects in some climates, and to keep you warm in others.
Lightweight travel towel.
Lightweight waterproof jacket.
Underwear & socks (obviously).
Sunscreen or sunblock.
Personal bathroom supplies.
Any personal medication.
Hand sanitiser gel.
Pens, pencils, notebook, travel games and camera as needed.
Chargers for electronics.
It is important to dress in a more modest manner while traveling in Asia; short skirts or shorts and tank tops are not appropriate for visits to religious and culturally significant sights, so remember to pack clothing that covers the shoulders and knees.
As for your suitcase, we recommend to avoid hardshell luggage or suitcases due to the uneven surfaces or non-existent sidewalks. Soft backpacks or duffel bags that you can carry are better; they are easier to travel with and to fit into luggage compartments.
If you and your students will be participating in one of our service learning programs, Khiri Campus offers a few more packing recommendations:
LED headlight or flash light.
Belly bag or a small backpack that you can put your valuable or personal items in, to bring with you to the project site.
Comfortable working shoes.
