SUNSCREEN **
[be wary of sunscreen in many south east asian countries, china and central asia as it may be a skin bleaching lotion often used by locals girls to whiten their skin, though they are packaged very similar to normal sunscreen. rumour has it that some can cause permanent damage to the skin or at best make you look like michael jackson, and no one wants that!]
