Small Bag for Essentials

When planning on spending most of your time on your feet exploring, you will need to carry some essentials. This will help you spend your entire time out and not having to run back to your hotel. The bag should be small and light, so there will not be too much strain as you explore. There are bags for both men and women to create an easy experience.

Once you have your travel bag, next you will need to buy and/or pack a few essentials. This will give you everything you need for the day, eliminating the need to have to go back to your room—saving you time. Some of the key items to put inside your bag include:
  • Camera (unless you plan to use your phone)
  • First aid supplies
  • Gum
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Medication
  • Phone backup battery charger with cord
  • Poncho or small umbrella
  • Snacks
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Wallet (RFID versions can help prevent theft)

Comfortable Shoes

When planning a sightseeing trip, you may be on your feet for several hours at a time, for several hours per day. It is crucial to have a good pair of comfortable shoes to wear that day. If you cannot purchase a pair of shoes, you can at least buy inserts that will give you the support you need.
