Packing for South East Asia + Printable Packing List

When trying to figure out what to pack for my trip of 6 weeks to South-East Asia, it was very hard to find any packing lists. There are plenty for Europe and America, but only a few for South-East Asia. In particular, there’s barely anything for countries like Cambodia.

My 6 week trip would primarily be in Cambodia, but I was also going to have a stop over in Kuala Lumpar, and possibly go to Vietnam and Thailand. I expected that it would be hot over there, but I also had to prepare for the cold weather in Australia for my departure and arrival back in the country.

So the question remained – what do I pack?

Travel Makeup Kit

If you’re anything like me, you like to still look good when travelling. But unless you are a makeup artist, you probably don’t want to be dragging along a full make up kit. It’s even harder to figure out what to bring when you’ve got luggage weight restrictions.

Lucky for you I have perfected a small travel make up kit that is perfect for overseas trips, road trips, or even for a short break. It have all the essentials you need and can easily fit into your hand bag or carry on luggage.

My Travel Beauty Essentials

A little while ago I created a set on Polyvore about my travel beauty essentials.  Here is what I came up with:


Travel beauty essentials


These are items that I have taken with me on previous trips, and items that I regularly use. I think it’s important to take along items that you use regularly when travelling – I definitely wouldn’t recommend trying out completely new products when on the road for a significant time. If it’s just a week, I’m sure you’ll be alright. But more than a week and things might go a little awry… for example you can aggravate your skin or dry out your hair. Or it may not work the way you want it and then you’re carrying around a product you don’t need.

So with that in mind I picked products I used every day. With my list you can see a lot of The Body Shop products. This is because I have used a lot of these products in the past and know that they work for me. Also, the Redken hair product is something that I used to use a lot to keep my hair healthy, so it was considered an essential back then.

Now that it is closer to my trip, I have started to rethink this list and have come up with something a little different… I will be posting that shortly so stay tuned for an updated list about my travel beauty essentials…
