Packing. It can be a pretty time consuming process. You have to figure out what you need – and how much you need. One of the most common travel issues? Over packing. Many of us (even experienced travellers) tend to bring far too many items with us on vacation. That leads to bulky heavy suitcases. That can be a real problem. Especially now that most airlines are cracking down on heavy baggage. Anything over the limit will cost you money. Not exactly a great way to kick-start your trip to Cirebon. Not to worry! Just follow these super simple packing tips. They will make sure your Indonesian vacation goes off without a hitch.
Think About How Long You Will Be There. The most important thing to do? Think about how long you will be in Cirebon. You can find hotels here that will accommodate long trips as well as shorter visits. So take a look at your options. You might wind up at the beautiful Swiss-Belhotel Cirebon! Once you know how long you will be visiting…you will know how much you need to pack. Do not bring more than you need. Aim to have enough outfits for each day you are there. Then pack one extra. Just in case. If you are planning to go to a nice dinner during your stay? You might want to pack something appropriate for a night on the town as well.
Ditch The Dark Clothes and Choose Something Light. Indonesia is known for its warm weather. Scratch that. It’s hot weather. That makes it extra important for you to pack light. Literally. Choose lightweight clothing instead of heavy or bulky pieces. It is also a good idea to stick to lighter coloured clothing. Wondering why? Dark fabrics (like black or brown) absorb more sunlight. That makes them feel warmer. Light fabrics on the other hand reflect more sunlight. That helps you stay cooler throughout the day. Even if the weather is scorching outside.
Have The Right Footwear For Cirebon Attractions. The footwear you bring with you matters. Especially if you plan on visiting one of the local attractions. Say you plan to spend time at Sunyaragi Cave. You will need sturdy and comfortable footwear. This will make the walking much easier. So be sure to pack one practical pair of shoes in your suitcase. Then bring along some sandals (just in case you want to go to a water park or spend time at the pool) as well as a pair of shoes for evening. These can be a little dressier depending on what you have planned.
Make Sure You Have The Appropriate Extras On Hand. Now for the extras. There are certain things you will need if you are going to spend time in Cirebon. Like bug spray, nausea medication (in case you get queasy on the bus or in a cab), tissues, hand sanitizer, a wall adaptor (to charge your electronics), and sun essentials (like hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen). With these on hand? Your Cirebon getaway will be absolutely flawless from start to finish.
