hindu temple bali
packing for trips is no joke. especially when you’re trying to fit three weeks’ worth of stuff into a suitcase.

i had never been to asia before, so i went in a bit blind with my packing for this trip. now that i’m back from the trip, and i can confidently say that i didn’t forget anything! if anything, i overpacked a bit. i looked at a bunch of suggestions online for what to pack for india and bali, indonesia, so i wanted to make a master list online of everything useful that i found to make it simple for you! for fun, I also threw in my ‘to do’ and list from before my trip.

i used these super amazing packing cubes for my trip, which worked super well because of the varying sizes they come in. there are 3 cubes for clothes, one for shoes, one for underwear, one for laundry, and one for toiletries. totally recommend getting them!

everything I packed fit into my samsonite 24″ suitcase and my away everywhere bag carry-on very easily.
