Stay hy­drated

India Today - - TRAVEL -

Al­ways carry

A light jacket for the flight, com­fort­able shoes, a swim­suit and a com­fort­able pair of jeans that can be styled for dif­fer­ent looks.

Counter in-flight bore­dom

Down­load and save all the read­ing ma­te­rial on your phone.

Five es­sen­tials

A dress that takes you from day to evening, a high SPF sun­screen, a spa­cious bag, dry sham­poo, and pep­per spray if you’re trav­el­ling solo.

Choose lug­gage wisely

Tumi and Delsey make some great, long-last­ing lug­gage. Make sure to add a smart name tag to iden­tify your bag and avoid mix-ups.

Must-have ac­ces­sories

Scarves are a life-saver. They keep you warm and help you cover up if you’re trav­el­ling to a con­ser­va­tive des­ti­na­tion. A big shoul­der bag for your doc­u­ments.

Pack smart

Do a quick weather check and read a lit­tle bit on the cul­ture of the place be­fore you head there.

Best apps to have

TripAd­vi­sor, for ev­ery­thing; Yelp, if you’re trav­el­ling abroad for restau­rant re­views and rec­om­men­da­tions; Skyscan­ner, for the cheap­est flight tick­ets, i-es­cape, for book­ing bou­tique ho­tels or se­cret hide­aways, Price­line or Hotwire (mostly works in­ter­na­tion­ally), for last minute se­cret deals on ho­tels and Ci­tymap­per, for lo­cal trans­port or a lo­cal metro map app for the place you’re trav­el­ling to.

Gad­get rec­comen­da­tions

Noise can­celling head­phones.

Pro tip

Keep your­self hy­drated al­ways.
