Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: thin clothing because its really hot here , an umbrella would be nice because downpour usually from Oct to Mar but nowadays its really hard to predict ( you can also get one here , its very cheap ), comfy shoe with ventilation ( coz you will be sweating a lot )

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Get a malaria injection ( if you want , but this is not really popular here ), the Aedes mosquito which spread Dengue fever has been the new monarchy ever since a Malaria jab / tablet is available.

Note that Aedes usually strike during dawn and dusk time , so put more repellents during that time . Or you can but some mosquito repellent plug in for you hotel room.

All medical supplies can be easily available in leading pharmacies ( in malls )

Photo Equipment: Its cheaper in malaysia , so dont have to bring films etc, camera is also cheaper here

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
