Asia Packing List

Regional Variations

The weather in these locations is hot, but also very humid. For this reason, we recommend bringing clothing that is lightweight, loose fitting, and quick drying. It will rain sporadically, so we recommend bringing a light, water repellant jacket or poncho that you can easily pack away when you don’t need it.

Location-Specific Variations

Temperature: Hot, Humid, 80°-95°

Checked Bags/Sightseeing: You’ll have access to your checked bag before your sightseeing weekend, so you can split your stuff up however you’d like!

Our Pro-Tips:

  • There are lots of bugs, so bring plenty of bug spray and anti-itch cream. These mosquito repellent bracelets are a great option for added protection.
  • You will fall in love with your waterproof sandals (like Tevas or Chacos) during your trip. However, make sure you still have close-toed shoes for the worksite.
