Red and Blue is really a holiday colour

  • Clothing that adds colour and practicality to your wardrobe is a must.
  • A few pieces here and there that are isolated in nature and theme are useless.
  • Your choices should overlap into various combinations so you have so much more to wear, at the end of the day.

Planning Well Ahead For A Tropical Holiday

  • Before you set off on an exotic island trip, jot down some of the things you are planning to pack, according to the weather conditions you will encounter and the activities you will be participating in
  • Packing too many items that you will never wear is also not a good idea, either.
  • Plan some colour schemes for clothing and shoes.
  • Too many colours equals too many clothes and shoes.
  • A basic colour scheme can be added to easily.

Some Important Items To Pack In Your Travel Bag

The one thing that people forget is how hot a tropical beach will be!

1. Remember to take a couple of pairs of sunglasses, in case the one is mislaid or breaks.

2. Sunscreen and enough of it , especially waterproof ones. Some people are allergic to the perfumes in some of the lotions, so test before you go on holiday.

3. Hats and peaks are a must. Natural fibres are best as they will keep you cooler.

4. Sarongs in a variety of colours are useful for the beach. Many of them you will be able to purchase at the local markets.

5. Soft cotton tee shirts in light colours are a must for your shorts and skirts.

6. Plenty of underclothes..who wants to do a lot of laundry?

7. Lovely flowing shifts for cocktail evenings or show's at that tropical beach cafe.

8. Good shoes for walking and flip flops, for that hot sandy beach.

9. A wind breaker can help ward off the flash tropical showers too.

10. Your bathing costume and another bikini in case you swim twice. Lovely big beach towel for your lazy day on the beach will be so useful.

11. If you have prescription medicines that you take / Don't forget to pack them along with a prescription, in case you run out.

12.Remember your camera or your cam corder for the fabulous scenic shots to take back to your family and friends.

Hats Are A Must

♥ Sun protection is so important when visiting a tropical paradise. A good wide brimmed hat will give you the shade you need from the hot noon day sun.

♥ The problem with wearing a peak is that it does not cover the top of the head , where the protection is most needed.
