Now that you have planned your trip, purchased a cheap airline ticket and have decided what to bring and what NOT to bring, know how you will pack your luggages, save space, prevent wrinkles and have a safe luggage, here are better ideas on what to wear and what not to wear when travelling.

What to Wear
  •  Comfortable pants and shoes during the flight  
  •  Black or brown colour for easy coordination of your wardrobe 
  •  Disposable underwear for men and women 
  •  Convertible, zip-off pants to save room in your backpack 
  •  No need to purchase an entirely new wardrobe.  You may want to leave Hawaiian shirt and  beach shorts at home depending on your destination 
  •  Light casual wear is always practical when touring around the city
  •  Bring warm garments during rainy days or when visiting mountainous areas where nights can be  cool and chilly
  •  On hot summer months, it is best to wear a hat, a pair of sunglasses and sunscreen
  •  Expect to get wet on your trip to island hopping and other boat activities, so wear shorts and  sandals
  •  Always carry a shawl or scarf in your bag if you are entering a place of worship
What Not to Wear
  •  Flashy jewellery as there is no need to impress anyone that much on your trip abroad. Better  leave valuables at home
  •  Religious jewellery like crosses and necklaces
  •  Stay away from bold colours, loud patterns. You don’t want to draw unwanted attention by  wearing a neon shirt, do you? This is one mistake I made on my latest cruise. I brought a couple  of shorts, although they are light but matching bright coloured shirts. I did not wear any of  them out in the city tour 
  •  Inappropriate clothing. It is advisable to wear conservative dresses in countries that holds  deeply on religious customs (e.g. Middle East) 
  •  The following should not be worn in churches, mosque, temples and other place of worship:  For Women; short sleeved shirts, shorts or capri, mini-skirts, tank tops, bra tops. For  Men;  Sleeveless shirts and shorts
  •  Revealing clothes for women (tight pants and cleavage-bearing necklines)
  •  Extremely high-heeled shoes
