1. Foldable Duffle Bag

Some people say it’s *just* for safety, but really, foldable duffle bags are a must! You don’t have to worry about it when flying out since it can fit practically anywhere (and it doesn’t add much weight either!). But when you’re already packing before going home, you’ll see that you need the extra space!

2. Compression Bags

Who doesn’t want to dress up really nice when traveling? That’s right—no one. But great OOTDs sometimes come with multiple layers, and it might be a problem for some. If you’re having problems with your luggage space, it’s time to give compression bags a chance—it’ll help you organize and fit more items in your bag!

3. Multi-port Powerbank

Whether it’s to access the weather app or your social media accounts, we’ve become more and more dependent on our gadgets, especially when traveling. That’s why it’s also a must to bring a multi-port powerbank (because let’s face it: one port isn’t enough) and make sure you don’t run out of battery while abroad!

4. Digital Luggage Scale

You know what’s harder the packing? Repacking at the airport! Imagine having to ~re-strategize~ just to fit everything in your luggage--all that amid rushing passengers. And that’s the reason why you need a digital luggage scale. It helps you prepare before you check in your bags and keeps you from paying for the excess baggage fee!

5. Roaming WiFi

Most of the things we do with our phones require internet. And we know data can get a bit pricey, too. So, instead of buying sim cards or looking for WiFi spots abroad, we suggest you just bring your own roaming WiFi like the NEW CherryRoam Pocket WiFi. Not only does it have a sleek and lightweight design; it also boasts of a wide coverage that allows you to use it in different parts of the world. And the best thing about it? You don’t have to worry about unlocking your phone--no need to worry about its compatibility with your telco!

We think many will agree that it takes a while to get the hang of traveling. Even the ones who travel more than once or twice a year encounter issues like lack of luggage space and costly internet connections. But with the right items and devices, you’ll be traveling like a pro in no time!
