Asia Backpacking Packing List

 Four weeks from tomorrow, I'll be boarding an airplane for four weeks in Asia! 

Here's the current plan:
  • Bangkok
  • Ao Nang/Krabi
  • Chiang Mai
  • Siem Reap
  • Phnom Penh
  • Bali
That means for packing, I need beach/island clothes, city clothes, jungle clothes, and temple clothes (gotta cover up!)  All need to be appropriate for sweltering weather and all need to fit in a 27-liter carry-on backpack!

This one is really going to test me.  Here's what I'm planning on bringing:

  • Clothes
    • Bottoms
      • One pair of denim shorts
      • One pair of loose-fitting lightweight black pants
      • One pair of black yoga pants
    • Tops
      • One white short-sleeved t-shirt
      • One black v-neck t-shirt
      • One black tank top
      • One orange 3/4 sleeved top
      • One black sleeveless tunic
      • One denim button-up shirt (to use as a shirt or as a layer for chilly transportation)
      • Two grey workout tops, one sleeveless, one short-sleeved
    • Dresses
      • One black short-sleeved dress
      • One blue short-sleeved dress
    • Misc.
      • Sleep t-shirt
      • Sleep shorts
      • Rain jacket (not pictured)
      • Two bathing suits
      • Underwear, bra, sports bra
  • Shoes
    • One pair Chacos/sport sandals for hiking and water activities
    • One pair of Birkenstock sandals for walking and going out
  • Misc.
    • Quick-dry travel towel
    • Dry bag
    • Day pack (packable if necessary)
    • Toiletries & liquids (may do another post listing these!)
    • Travel gear
      • Inflatable neck pillow
      • Silk eye mask
      • Headphones
      • Phone charger
      • iPhone
      • Ear plugs


I am thrilled beyond belief to be getting this opportunity!  I'll do another post once I'm out there to follow up with what I miss and what I would ditch next time.
