Essentials for a Move to Asia

When you plan a move to Asia, you may find that you need to stay in a hostel or travel before you secure work and lodging. Because of this possibility, planning a move to this faraway land should always include packing a backpack with necessities.

There’s nothing worse than planning a stay at a hostel only to discover that you have no way to charge your cell phone because you don’t have a voltage converter, or even suddenly realizing that you’ve forgotten medication back home. These essentials should always be high on your list when traveling to areas like Asia or other international countries.

Traveling to Asia

Importance of Travel Locks

Whether you take advantage of a locker or safe deposit box at a hostel, or you simply want to secure your bag at the airport, it is important to keep several thin travel locks on your person at all times. Securing your belongings is very important in a hostel community with a lot of people coming and going. This also means that a locking backpack or bag is going to be important. No matter how many pockets and zippers a bag has, if you can’t lock it then it’s not a good choice for traveling through Asia.


A battery-operated or rechargeable headlamp is an excellent companion when staying in a hostel, and it can be of benefit while riding a train or flying, too. They enable you to see what you’re doing without using a large light or disturbing other travelers. This also comes in handy when you have to read a map or locate something outdoors after dark. More importantly, some hostels have outdoor bathrooms, and your headlamp will help you find your way.

Toiletry Bag and Towel

A good toiletry bag with a handle will keep your most important supplies dry. Fill it with items like extra toilet paper, feminine supplies (if applicable), soap, shampoo, and baby wipes for a quick and portable hygiene kit. This also makes hostel showers quick and convenient.

Always carry your own towel, too; many places don’t provide them. Even if they do, the cleanliness of said towels may be questionable (towels are particularly high-risk for bedbugs). Flip-flops are also an essential item for showering hygiene and will ward off Plantar warts. Avoiding germs is very important. The more of your own items you have on hand, the less chance you have of encountering germs and other unsavory bugs along the way.

Don’t Leave Home Without Your Travel Sheet

Also known as a sleeping liner, a microfiber travel sheet is ideal for helping you feel comfortable. Sometimes just knowing that you’re sleeping on a clean sheet is enough to help you relax. Most come in the form of a lightweight, airy sheet that folds up small enough to pack into a purse, bag, or backpack. Wrap it securely around your body while flying, at the hostel, or even while taking public transit to keep warm and snug.

Alarm Clock

Sure, it would be less hassle to just use your cell phone, but some hostels don’t have outlets near the bed, while others don’t have outlets at all. A foldable travel alarm clock is the best bet if you’re concerned about getting up at a specific time. Resting in a hostel is kind of a gamble, anyway, as they can be quite noisy, and travel is exhausting, so, when you finally do sleep, you could potentially miss a quiet smartphone alarm.

Travel Adapter

Whether your hostel provides an outlet close to your bed or not, eventually you are going to need to charge your electronics. If you purchase an international voltage adapter, look for a device with a built-in surge protector. This will keep you from having to buy new electronics before you even get settled in Asia.
