What to Bring

  1. Clothes: Lots of questions especially from parents... Honestly, it is going to be sooooo humid so don't bring jeans or 10 pairs of sneakers etc.  Unless you're going to the gym, sneakers will sit in your suitcase.  Besides your wedding attire, you're going to want to wear almost nothing the whole time.  There are heaps of laundromats that will wash and dry your clothes for $2 a kilo.  T-shirts, singlets, shorts.  
  2. Toiletries/Medicines: Sunscreen is expensive there so I always bring some.  Same with mosquito repellant. I always bring a first aid kit of some sort.  Also, Panadol, neurofen, cold and flu as you need a script to buy Pseudoephedrine...
  3. Alcohol: We always buy duty free from Australia on the way in as wine and spirits are quite expensive... Always great to have a little in room bevy.  1 litre per person allowed into Phuket.
