6 Smart Packing Tips for Female Travellers

Do you ever get accused of bringing your entire closet every time you travel? Most busy Singapore women really find it hard to fit all of their essentials in just a single bag, which is why they end up with a luggage bag, a hand-carry bag, and a purse. But female travellers don’t need to worry anymore. Here are some useful tips that any female wanderer can do to quickly and efficiently pack their essentials into a single luggage.

  1. Go on layers and wear convertible clothes

Wearing uncomfortable clothes is one of the things that you should avoid when travelling. Instead of packing your favourite college hobo sweatpants, pack some of your most comfortable clothing pieces for your long flights and long travel days. Go for cotton shirts, pants and skirts, as well as layering pieces like cardigans, which you can re-wear over and over again, and a good pair of thick black leggings. Leave your fancy outfits at home, unless you’re attending a wedding or a conference.

  1. Use a backpack with a small canvas tote as your carry on

Travelling with a backpack is lot easier than dragging a suitcase around. This can be a good travelling hack especially if you’re going to travel outside Singapore, and encounter airlines that have a strict policy when it comes to weight limits. You can use the small canvas tote as an extra bag to hold the things you’ll be using during your flight, such as food, your tab, or laptop.

  1. Pack extra clothes in your hand-carry bag

You’ll never know when your luggage might get lost and if you’ve been travelling for about 24 hours already, not being able to change into clean clothes might become your breaking point. Avoid such situation by packing extra set of clothes in your hand-carry bag. Just pack one light cotton dress, your undergarments, or socks, depending on the climate of your destination.

  1. Just bring three pairs of shoes

Shoes are heavy, and takes a lot of space and weight in the luggage. Instead of bringing all pairs of shoes that you own, just stick to three pairs. If your destination has a warm climate, bring your flats and flip-flops. It would also be wise if you’ll wear your boots on the plane if it’s the peak of winter season on the place you’re headed to. For a rainy weather, pack a pair of waterproof shoes.

  1. Keep some extra money in your suitcase

Being mugged or pickpocketed is one of the worst things that could happen while you’re travelling. A good way to avoid or cope up with such situation is to divide your money, and keep some of it in your suitcase, away from wallet.

  1. Bring portable batteries or a USB charger

If you keep all your important details in your gadgets, such as flight details, maps or directions to hotels, then your portable USB charger isn’t something that you should miss out on your packing list. Keep these items in a separate Ziploc bag, so that you’ll avoid rushing to charging outlets when your battery drains out.

For women, packing for a flight is a stressful task. But following the aforementioned packing tips will definitely make a big difference in your packing, and even save some space on your hand-carry bags.
