Trip Preparations and packing list


It is essential to respect the local customs/traditions with the clothing that you pack. Please respect this and pack modest clothes.  You will be asked to change your clothes if these guidelines are not followed. This is extremely important!

Please note there are no laundry facilities on this trip, however you can hand wash your clothes if necessary. Most people make the mistake of bringing too much clothing.  A suggestion: Avoid nylon and other synthetics which can be very uncomfortable in hot weather.

Travel light – you are away for one week. Pack only one bag/suitcase to check in and one carry-on bag/backpack. Best to have identification tags on your luggage.
