A Packing Checklist for a Beach Vacation – Koh Samui Trip Tips!

There's nothing more beautiful than a beach vacation in Koh Samui where you can just kick back and relax for about a week where you can get a tan and get rid of all your immediate worries and stress. But for it to be a stress-free holiday here is a concise packing list to start you off.


Getting Started

Before you plan on what you are hoping to pack you need to consider the nature of your beach trip. The first point is, of course, the geographical location of the beach. If you are planning a classic beach holiday in Thailand, you need to consider the type of hotel you are picking and what facilities they offer. Resorts like Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort are all-inclusive and even have some great deals that you can make use of. Peruse the websites and pick out the perfect destination.


Check the Local Weather

Remember that endless sunny beach days that seem to meld into each other can quickly turn into cold and chilly rainy days if you don't get your seasons right. So, check the weather schedule for the country you are hoping to travel to and see what the forecast is. Understand the potential changes in the weather and either prepare to go when the weather is fair or be prepared for foul weather when you go.


How Many Nights Will You Stay?

You should know this before you start shopping for Koh Samui hotels. How many nights are you planning to stay at the beach? This would change depending on how much you love the beach, how big your budget is, how many days of holidays you can spend and other factors such as what is there to do in Koh Samui that will entertain you. In most cases, a week is sufficiently enough. Once you know the number of days you hope to stay you can begin making your packing list.


Make an Early Packing List

Make your packing list early so if there are things that you don't have with you immediately you can prepare to buy it or borrow it from someone and give a couple of days for it to get to you. The packing list should first contain all the important items that you never leave the house without. This includes any medication, your spectacles, travelling documents and credit cards. After which, you can switch to your clothes. These will depend on the sort of holiday you plan to spend and the number of days you will be away. For example, the kind of clothes and shoes you need if you are spending the entire duration of your vacation at the beach is different from if you decide to have a business trip or go hiking.


Choose the Right Luggage

Once you've made your early packing list you can decide what to carry everything in. You'll know the size of the bag you require, and you can also pick out what you'll be taking with you for hand luggage.
