Asia definitely has a lot of pull when it comes to grabbing the attention of travelers from far and wide. With the vast history that plays into its culture and food that is promised to every tourist who comes to visit, it is near impossible to avoid adding an Asian country to your travel bucket list. Unfortunately, just as widely as it is enjoyed due to its low cost of living, there are many issues that can work to make the trip an unfavorable one. With some of the items listed below, however, many of Asia’s downsides can be kept at bay so that you can maximize your enjoyment while exploring what its got to offer.
One thing you may quickly take note of, especially if you are by the countryside or in the neck of the woods, is that washing and drying machines are few and far between in Asia. Luckily, with the Scrubba Portable Laundry System Wash Bag, washing your clothes is not only convenient but also a breeze due to its efficiency in cleaning clothes in minutes.
While seeing an umbrella in North America on a sunny day may be an oddity, Asia tends to be teeming with umbrellas even on a bright and cloudless day. Umbrellas are revered for being able to protect against the elements, be it the blazing sun, howling wind, pouring rain, or freezing snow, and the Travel Umbrella will have you covered for all of that.
Unless you are traveling in the fanciest of the hotels throughout Asia, it is safe to say that your pre-booked accommodations will not be able to fulfill your request for your bed to be fitted with silk sheets. Fear not, however, because with BRAVE ERA’s completely compact and lightweight Mulberry Silk Travel Sheet your skin will be kept smooth and wrinkle-free while having the best sleep ever.
The tropical climate throughout many parts of Asia may be perfect for summer dresses and shorts, but that also means it's mosquito season practically year round. Rather than smelling like layers and layers of harsh-smelling DEET all day long, try the Mosquito Repellent Bracelet to keep those pesky insects away.
It is near impossible to go traveling without a bag in tow for all your valuables and in case of emergency items. The Mengar Foldable Water Resistant Backpack works with you to make your journey in the east more manageable by being compressible and water repellent so that your sensitive documents don’t get soaked.
Asia has a plethora of cuisines to flaunt in your face, but unfortunately, with a lower standard in sanitary inspections, it is no wonder that North Americans tend to easily get sick while on tour. Nature’s Way’s Activated Charcoal can be used as a preventative measure and alleviation of oncoming symptoms when you start feeling sick by cleansing your internal tracts and absorbing toxins.
Asia is definitely known for being one of the fastest in the advancement of technology, so it would simply be impractical to travel without an additional power source to keep you hooked up all day. The Anker PowerCore+ Mini is not just a portable charger, but one of the most compact external batteries available, leaving you with no excuse not to pack it.
If music is what you need to get your groove on, look no further because Scosche’s Boom Bottle Portable Speaker has got you covered. Being weatherproof and wireless means that you can bring it with you to practically anywhere — even places your phone may not be able to, without disconnecting you from the beat.
Nothing is more annoying than opening up your luggage to find everything that you have worked so hard to fold and neatly place has completely shifted and created a mess of things. TravelWise’s Packing Cube System allows you to organize your belongings in a sensible way, so even if you were to be inspected, opening and zipping up your luggage again would be a breeze because you would know exactly where everything is.
One thing Asia is NOT known for is the quality of water, and that is where a LifeStraw Personal Water Filter may be handy, even when traveling within the city. It is able to filter up to 1000 liters of contaminated water, removing a minimum of 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria.
