While traveling abroad may have you thinking about with your accommodation, flight details, and itinerary, there is one subject that both new and seasoned travelers struggle with every time – packing. Yes, a lot of the minor hassles of a trip arise when people haphazardly pack their belongings. To help you pack smarter for your next getaways, here are some baggage tips …
… on choosing luggage
For most trips, especially quick ones, only a single bag will do. A heavy-duty case or a reliable, water-resistant backpack that can readily fit into the overhead compartment space of an airplane is best. With the single-bag mindset, travelers can easily add one more bag to carry all the travel documents, and a laptop if necessary.

… on packing clothing
For clothing, the rule of thumb is – the denser, the better. If it can be rolled, roll it. If it can be folded, fold it. This ensures that the space in the bag is maximized. Some people even use Ziploc bags and put out the air for a better fit. Ideally, clothing should only take up a third of the space inside the bag.
… on electronic gadgets
For many diplomatic missions, many people take along their laptops and mobile phones. That’s it. However, some people who believe they’ll be having some leisure time to themselves bring their high-end cameras. This is okay if a person will be shooting professionally. If not, phone cameras are enough for souvenir shots.
