    1. When packing, roll your clothes intead of folding them. It’s a big space saver! Roll them as tightly as you can so that you are able to use less space in your luggage to store the clothes.
    2. Try to not bring heavy or thick clothes if it is unnecessary (especially if you are traveling to warm places) because rolling up thick and heavy clothing is something quite hard to do!
    3. For smaller items that you’re bringing along, you can always stuff them in between the little spaces you can find between your clothes in the luggage. Make use of the side spaces.
    4. To pack shoes, separate them out and place them where you can find the odd spaces in your bag, instead of storing a pair together which usually means you need more space for it.

    5. Wrap up your toiletries in a bag before placing them in your bag. This is so that in case your toiletry contents leak and spill from their bottles, they are contained in the bag and not stain your belongings. Spare some small bottles of your toiletry in your carry on bag if you are traveling by plane on a long distance flight. But do remember that you can only bring on at most 100ml bottles of toiletries in liquid form. Anything above that 100ml limit will be confiscated by the airport authorities.
    6. If you are bringing things like a pen knife, nail cutter, scissors, etc, make sure you do not keep them in your carry on bag. Put them in the luggage that you are checking in as you are not allowed to bring items of such nature on board. If found to be on you, these items will also be confiscated by the airport authorities.

    7. Don’t travel with lots of jewelries on you. You may accessorise but don’t over do it with lots of gold and diamonds.
    8. Take note of your dressing so that you do not appear to stand out in the crowd and attract attention wherever you go.
    9. You need not be overly friendly with strangers. Be polite and friendly, but just don’t encourage to befriend them (go and watch the movie Taken).
    10. Don’t accept drinks from people you do not know when you are out partying.
    11. If you are taking cabs or taxis and have some dispute over the charges (it happens in some countries), don’t argue too much with the driver. Just pay up, leave and learn the lesson.
    12. When in your hotel room, always lock the door and check who’s at the door before opening it.
