Tip 1: Have a Packing List

When you travel, you want to make sure you have everything you need from passports to toothbrushes. Having a packing list ensures you don’t forget to bring anything on your trip. With the HeyTravelista Essential Packing List, you won’t forget anything again!

Tip 2: Download Google Maps Offline

If you have enough space on your phone, downloading Google Maps on your phone will be a lifesaver when you don’t have internet connection.

Tip 3: Know some Basic Words and Phrases to get Around

Locals always appreciate it when visitors make an effort to communicate in their language. Using the Hey Travelista language guides, you’ll be able to find your way around a foreign country with ease.


Tip 4: Scan Important Documents

Scan or take pictures of important documents such as passport, ID, visas, hotel confirmation and address, flight confirmation and itinerary. That way, if you don’t have wifi to readily access all of these documents, you can find them easily on your phone. Or print them out if you think your phone will run out of battery!


Tip 5: Dryer Sheets

Your suitcase could start to smell stale if you’re travelling for longer than a long weekend. Storing shoes and clothes together in a small space will stop your clothes from smelling fresh. To stop your clothes from smelling, put a few dyer sheets in your suitcase.


Tip 6: Download Useful Apps

Every city/country has their own apps for public transport maps, taxi’s and ordering food. You’ll be able to find these apps easily with a google search. Popular taxi hailing apps in South-East Asian countries are GrabTaxi (Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) and Gojek (Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand and will soon operate in the Philippines and Malaysia).


Tip 7: Keep Necessities and Valuables in Your Carry-on

Keep a spare toothbrush in your carry-on in case your flight gets delayed and you are stuck in the airport. Keeping valuables such as jewellery in your carry-on is recommended in case your check-in luggage goes missing or someone else takes it by mistake!
