8 Top Packing List Items for Pattaya - The Best and Most Needed Items for Budget Travelers

Continue reading for the eight top packing items for budget travellers and backpackers exploring the coastal city of Pattaya in Thailand.


A Travel Sheet

This particular item may come as a surprise to many, but for those experienced with backpacking, a travel sheet is practically the norm. While luxury travellers will have no use for a travel sheet, budget travellers and backpackers will find it particularly useful when they have to hunker down in an unclean hostel.


A Waterproof Phone Case

A waterproof phone case will come in handy when you travel in Thailand because rain here can be quite unpredictable. The last thing you want happening is a sudden mid-day shower that catches you off guard and soaks your phone. Make sure to have a waterproof case on hand in order to avoid such eventualities.


An Underwater Camera

An underwater camera will also be quite useful in Thailand, particularly if you plan on visiting the coast or an island. Many visiting the country hopes to experience the wonderful and stunning marine life in Thailand, and an underwater camera will help you to capture some of those stunning moments and preserve them for prosperity. An underwater camera will also be quite safe during sudden downpours as well thereby making it a great addition to your trip.


A Backpack or a Knapsack

It is important for budget travellers and backpackers to get a good and sturdy backpack instead of bulky luggage. When travelling from one place to another, it is easier to carry a backpack or a knapsack and such an item is also easier to keep safe. Get a good one which has zippers that can be locked and a sleeve for a laptop or a tab if you are travelling with one.


Passport Pouch

A passport pouch is an essential travel item when travelling in Pattaya. Such a pouch will help you keep your travel documents well organised and safe. This will be especially useful when exploring crowded places in Pattaya such as the Sanctuary of Truth, the Walking Street or the Jomtien Beach when pickpockets may be aplenty. The pouch can be used to hold your travel documents, cash, as well as credit and debit cards and you, can wear the pouch safely underneath your clothes.


Activated Charcoal Pills

While you certainly won't need activated charcoal pills when staying at a resort such as AVANI Pattaya Resort & Spa, for backpackers and budget travellers, these pills can be quite a blessing. Activated charcoal pills are known to absorb various toxins in your body and thus, you will find that they will help you maintain your health during your tour of Thailand.


A Travel Adapter

This is probably one of the most useful things to carry when travelling in Thailand. While you wouldn't really need one when staying at a Pattaya beach resort, a travel adapter will ensure that you are able to charge your phone and any other electronic devices you may carry. A travel adapter is also a smart choice given that there are different power outlets in the country.


A Quick – Dry Towel

This is a particularly useful item for budget travellers because not all hostels will provide you with an individual towel. Avoid having to lug around a large bath towel by opting for a lightweight and small quick-dry towel that will almost certainly come in handy during your trip.
