1 Suncream factor 50 – that sun is hot, hot, hot. I would recommend Ultrasun, which you (honestly) only have to apply once a day, it sinks in fast and isn’t greasy.
2 Jelly shoes – they are waterproof and sturdier than flip flops for excursions
3 Aloe Vera spray and aftersun – you will need it
4 Bite relief cream – you will need it
5 A sunhat – keep the sun off your face for healthy sightseeing
6 Hand sanitiser – so you can eat street food at a moment’s notice!
7 A bumbag – safe, and easy to reach the essentials
8 T-shirts with sleeves – especially for when travelling with a large rucksack, to stop chafing. A little pot of talcum powder is also really useful for these purposes
9 Cover up clothes – most temples require ankles and arms to be covered, and some ask for closed toe shoes – which are also useful for climbing excursions
10 A camera with memory card – because your phone will definitely overheat and turn off!
