This post aims to provide practical advice on things that we need to buy before visiting Cambodia and other countries in Asia such as Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos etc.
There are a lot of things you can buy on local markets in each country. You don’t have to carry everything. For example, I saw some people still recommend to buy toilet paper. It is insane. These days, you can find almost what you need during your trip.
What I am going to recommend are the things that you might not find in local markets in some country.
Let’s start our recommendation!
The thing might go bad during the trip. We recommend that we buy the travel insurance from the company that covers developing country such as Cambodia. We recommend World Nomads because of its reputation.
You can contact them 24/7. In case you have a serious accident and need to go to hospitalize in Thailand or Bangkok, it is covered. Make sure you choose this option when you purchase.
It’s good to have first aid with you while you travel.
You will feel safe and when it comes to having an emergency need, you got it in your luggage.
This little box contains everything you need.
Portable Mosquito Repellers
There are mosquitos at night in some places. If you need to stay outdoor for some occasions, it is good to have this portable mosquito repeller.
There’s no messy sprays or oily lotions. You just turn it on, the mosquitos gone. It can protect up to a 15-foot surrounding area.
It is not expensive.
Cambodia is hot. Your skin can get burned without sunscreen. It’s good to protect your skin while you visit the Angkor Wat temple or lay down on the beach at Sihanoukville.
This sunscreen is formulated with clinically-proven Helioplex, an advanced sunscreen technology with superior broad-spectrum protection from skin-aging UVA rays and skin-burning UVB rays. Fast-absorbing and waterproof, this non-oily formula is non-comedogenic and PABA-free.
When you need Cambodia food, sometimes you need to use your hands.
Not often but it is good to have this little small thing that can clean up your hand before and after eating.
You can find it in the local market as well. But it’s good to buy some in case you don’t have time to buy while traveling with tour operators.
You can buy pure water everywhere but sometimes when you go to the province it is hard to find the very good quality of pure water.
Buy one or two of water bottles to fill in the water before you leave the hotel.
Reserve them in case you can’t find the good water for yourself or kids.
We use 3 types of power sockets: type A, C, and G. It’s good to have your own adapter that can connect to any power sockets.
I would recommend buying this Poweradd World International Travel Adapter Kits. It will save your night. You can charge multiple devices at the same time.
