That’s right folks, the end of the year is quickly approaching, which means the holiday season is upon us. A chance for all you stressed-out Singaporeans to get some time away, kick back, and enjoy all that your dream destination has to offer. But what’s that feeling in your chest? That feeling that you forgot to pack something important? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us, even here at Homefix! So from all of us, here’s a guide on some crucial travel essentials to bring to your glorious getaway.
There is no single packing decision for an around-the-world trip more critical than choosing the right travel backpack. This one item will become your constant companion for the duration of your travels! So look for something lightweight, durable, and secure. Ideally, find a pack that is both top loading and front loading, which will allow you full access to everything you pack without tearing apart the entire bag.
Reading a few guidebooks is a great way to get background information on a new destination, information on the local culture, daydream-worthy inspiration for places to go, and practical transportation tips, among other things. Consider downloadable versions and travel apps as well!
A small but hardy combination lock can be used not only to secure your backpack on travel days but also to secure the lockers that are commonly available in hostel dorm rooms. When you’re travelling with a computer and want to leave it in a hotel or hostel while exploring, a good laptop-lock can provide extra peace of mind. If you’re visiting areas infamous for pickpockets, it pays to buy products that will help you hide any valuables that you carry on you.

What do you pack when you set off on a trip around the world?
