But do not let you be stressed because of thinking of holidays such as thinking about the situation in a tourist destination, how much money will be taken in order to meet all the needs, where to stay, where to go, use what transportation, what equipment will be brought, etc.


1. Cellphone / Tablet
This one tool seems to be inseparable from everyday life, both at work and on vacation. Its function is very much, among others, to facilitate communication, easy to find information, can be used as a guide, etc. But don’t let you vacation but the eyes are always on the gadget. That’s redundant !!

2. Camera
However the trip will be a beautiful memory when documented. Inheritance of grandchildren

3. Power Bank / Charger
It’s not really cool when our gadget holidays run out of batteries. The narcissistic event will be disrupted by it. Always charge all your gadgets at bedtime.

4. Toiletries
To maintain the freshness of the body wherever you are.

5. Sunglasses
The function of sunglasses in addition to appearance is to maintain the health of our eyes from the dangers of ultraviolet light. Living in a tropical area like Indonesia should have become a habit to always wear sunglasses when the sun is hot, especially when we are on the beach. Sunglasses are very effective in protecting the eyes from ultraviolet radiation. The rays can be very damaging, even if they hit the eye in a short time.

6. Self identity
Complete your identity such as KTP, KTM, Passport, etc. Its function can be to stay at hotels, rent cars, rent motorbikes and others. Don’t forget to take a photo copy of all the identities, if at any time needed.

7. Hand Sanitizer (Hand Sanitizer Gel)
Always keep clean, one of them is by washing your hands frequently. If we cannot wash our hands, the use of hand sanitizer can be used as an alternative to eliminate germs. You should not be quickly attracted by labels that promise the ability to kill germs by 99.9 percent. Try checking the packaging label, and find out how much alcohol concentrate contained in the hand sanitizer. Make sure the content is more than 60 percent. Most products only contain about 40 percent, and this is not effective enough to kill germs.

8. Sunblock / Sunscreen
In hot or cold weather try to keep using sunblock to avoid the negative effects of sunlight. Sunblock which is more widely known by the public has the function to reflect UVB from sunlight. While sunscreen has more functions, that is to prevent exposure to the skin by UVA and UVB rays. The use of both is indeed better for protecting the skin, but the formula will make the skin feel oily and sticky.

9. Drug / first aid box
Bring enough medicines such as dizziness, toothache medication, revanol, bethadin, bandages and cotton.

10. For women, don’t forget to bring a bandage.
