what to bring for few months backpacking in Asia

Packing list

After one month of drinking marathon in Prague I couldn’t postpone packing my stuff anymore. Therefore i made a list of items, which I’m bringing along.

The main goal for me is mobility. That means i took all necessary/basic things for survival. I should be able to fit everything in one 35L-40L backpack. I wanted to avoid 2 packs for the city/location changes and walking. The small backpack will be used for small trips only. I am very proud of this idea as it could be quite simple to carry around 1 mid size bag πŸ™‚


  • 5 underwear
  • 3 socks
  • 5 T-shirts
  • 2 shorts
  • water/wind proof jacket
  • sandals
  • swim shorts
  • shirt

Extra useful tools:

  • plastic water stopper for sink (washing my clothes)
  • plastic spoon/fork
  • water filter SAWYER just in case
  • swiss knife
  • sack for inside the sleeping bag (just for safety and hygiene – i don’t have sleeping bag)
  • pack of cigarettes for bribe if necessary
  • first aid kit
  • earplugs and eye mask
  • hidden bags for money and passport
  • electric socket extension
  • second wallet
  • head-light
  • lock

Is there anything else you would take to Asia with you? I will find out soon whether I am missing something πŸ™‚
