If you’re not prepared, travelling can be testing. But there’s no need to worry. Follow these tips and tricks and enjoy a trouble-free start to your time in Manila.What to pack in your hand luggage:
- A plane ride can be a great experience if you’ve got all the right things. First things first, you’ll need basic toiletry items, such as lip balm and hand cream, a clean pair of socks and a good read. Next, make room in your hand luggage for your phone, tablet and chargers, your important medications and maybe a proper neck pillow as well. Last, but definitely not least, don’t forget to take your passport, travel docs and your credit cards.
Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:
- Check carefully that you don’t have sharp or pointed objects hiding in one of the zippers of your carry-on luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive substances, such as fuel and fireworks, and gels and liquids in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
What to wear on a flight:
- Comfort should always be the goal when deciding what to wear on your flight. Consider your choice of footwear carefully too, as swollen feet can be a side effect of flying. Flat, slightly roomy shoes are always a smart option.
- The result of sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clotting condition that can affect some passengers during long-haul flights. The great news is there are ways to lower your risk of developing it. Stay well hydrated, wander through the cabin as much as you can and wear compression socks to help improve your circulation.
