As someone who has spent 25 years living in and out of a backpack, I’m getting the hang of packing efficiently and packing lightly. It doesn’t matter whether you’re travelling for one week or ten weeks, the amount of clothes you need is pretty much the same. My pack to Myanmar (Burma) weighed 10 kgs and on the return trip it weighed 15kgs. If I hadn’t bought gifts for friends, it probably would’ve only been 12 kgs.
On my recent trip to Burma there was only one thing I didn’t wear and that was my raincoat, although it did rain but the long boat I was in provided raincoats.
My tip for travelling to Myanmar (Burma) is three sets.
- One you’re wearing
- One you’re washing and it’s hanging up to dry
- One is in your pack
