  1. Hey Rob, for future videos with this mid-shot set-up, please consider locking the focus on you in manual mode, to avoid distracting auto-focus fluctuations. Thanks.

  2. Hi Rob, great! Just discovered you and loving your vlogs. I would also add to your list a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife or similar with:
    large blade
    nail file
    nail cleaner
    bottle opener
    screwdriver 5 mm
    wire stripper
    can opener
    screwdriver 3 mm
    reamer, punch and sewing awl
    Phillips screwdriver 1/2
    universal wrench M3, M4, M5
    wire crimping tool
    wire cutter
    nut wrench
    adjustable opening

  3. The other thing about “water shoes” is the are good now, when you’re out in town and get a downpour that floods the street. Fording streams and fording flooded streets are pretty much the same. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Cotton buds are easily available in 7/11 in travel pack size, but if you use them at home in large pack size scoop enough out and bring them with you, cheapest way. Not sure what some of the products were for being British but paracetamol, not ibuprofen, is a must and if you suffer from hayfever bring your own brand that you use.

  5. Hey Rob, I have a question for you. The last time we were in Thailand, my daughter plugged in the hairdryer from Japan, and the entire floor went dark… WTF!?

  6. Iโ€™ve heard other people say you should bring condoms from home because the ones over there are slightly smaller. Is there any truth to that?

  7. And for guys who’s using there phone alot I recommend to bring a powerbank and sunglasses because they will need it in Thailand and perfume because its expensive in Thailand and hats and a little bag that you can carry around when you go out to put your money and your small bottle of water and other little things you want to take it with you whenever you go out because guys when you go out in Thailand you will never wanna go back to your hotel until the end of the day this is my experience in travelling to Thailand

  8. thumbs up keeping busy i can see, great item list. About suntan lotion speaking with several Thai women i’ve said people come here to get the shade you are naturally. Where you women apply lotions and creams to achieve a much paler skin tone. Side note are the two scenarios due to advertisment???

  9. Travel essentials for the hypochondriac, alternatively take a shit load of money buy what you need as and when needed and help the Thai people that rely on tourism and boost their local economy.

  10. Hey rob enjoy all your videos thanks .One thing you should pack is a pen nothing more aggravating then when on the plane and you have to fill in your immigration document so pack a pen/ Biro take care rob

  11. I use a fanny pack for money, passport, and papers. I wear my shirt over it. Maybe everything in a zip bag just to keep things dry.

  12. That drink is Lonkero and my plan was to take 2 boxes (48 cans, under 20kg) with me last week to LOST resort, butโ€ฆ next flights reserved end of November 2020 and March 2021. Hope that then I can bring more that Finnish drink with me.

  13. Donโ€™t forget to bring a lot of โ€œpatienceโ€ to Thailand. Youโ€™ll need it when faced with โ€œThai logicโ€ and extreme โ€œsaving face.โ€ 555

  14. Have you done a video on cell phones and what to do if your provider from America is going to be cost prohibitive to use in Thailand?

  15. What I didn’t find in Thailand was heel plasters. I got big blisters on my heels and didn’t find any plasters for that. I only found ordinary plasters. So bring that to.

  16. Condoms !!! Several boxes of condoms. Because asian condoms are very small, even their largest ones don’t measure to western condoms. This is a must.

  17. Love the background, definitely, an improvement on the door hinges ๐Ÿ‘ , Yes, the essential sun creams such as the Nivea’s of this world are way overpriced in the Land of Luxury Taxes. Looks like the Thais consider this a luxury item as well. Maybe we should start taxing their rice and Nam Pla. Imodium is great advice, you never know when you’re going to get caught out. Neck Pillow – good Tip. Electric wall socket adaptor also a good tip. Deet Mosquito repellant – essential. Great Vid for the Newbies, Thumbs Up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  18. Imodium can be found at any pharmacy, although I prefer Pepto-Bismol to anything liquid sold in Thailand. Same goes for cough medicine, bring your fav, the ones in Thailand aren’t as tasty. Cough drops are fine in Thailand.

    I prefer a sling bag over a larger backpack for carrying essentials; however, most people are likely to have a backpack as their personal item on the plane. A small umbrella and cheap poncho are good too. The umbrella is also good for those who don’t want too much sun.

    I carry a small fanny pack that fits on my belt. It holds my phone, extra money, and a few other small items (including ear plugs for those places that play their music extra loud).

    I also bring a smaller wallet with only a few essentials in it that fits in front pants pocket. Don’t need those store credit cards, library card, etc. in Thailand.

    One more thing (although never had a problem), I repack my meds in smaller containers and bring the latest set of paperwork to prove they are legit. Saves a lot of room in the carry-on.

  19. I was the same when I traveled to LOS first, I just took an educated guess but missed out on a few of the essentials you described (I had to learn the hard way), but after 20+ trips, I keep a bag semi packet with the things I don’t need at at home, so I don’t need to think too hard if I buy a last minute ticket. Whilst Imodium is a must, I only take them in advance as soon as I leave for the taxi (whether I need them or not) the last thing you wanna do is sh*t yourself during transit to LOS. I found a globally available product called ‘Travelan’ which is a pro-biotic and fixes the runs problem before it starts when eat street or dodgy food (just taken 20 minutes before you eat), it is not prudent to take Imodium every day for your holiday as you will be constipated, the whole point of taking a dump is to get rid of waste, not keep it cooped up inside. Sterilising wipes are an excellent suggestion, the cleaners have fook all time to properly clean your seating areas for the flight, so I guarantee your tray table and hand rests is full of germs so a quick wipe is essential (especially now)

  20. Guys, I have good news!! Today, May 1st, at about 5 pm, the PM of Thailand has announced that “Sales of Alcoholic Drinks” will finally be permitted from May 3rd forward, but for takeaways only, no dine-in is allowed. Yayy! Finally you can drink beers in Thailand!

  21. The flip flops. I donโ€™t wear the thong flip flops. I wear the slip on type and I still have a pair that I bought at big C when I was there in 2015. Yes 5 years old and they are still alive.

  22. Your quantities are a little bit small but excellent list actually! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ† I carry large sizes and keep in check baggage

  23. Rob. Started off as a great item but you keep forgetting you’re talking to people around the world and many of the brands you’re knowingly talking about are USA brands only.
    Please try to remember to also call items by their genetic names such as paracetamol and such like.
    Now go back and do it again without the speech impediments and squirrels! ๐Ÿ˜

  24. Hey Rob, great vids and thank you! About that lesion on your lower eye lid that began about 3 weeks ago. Have you had that looked at? Hope so, take care my friend.

  25. Brilliant list Rob. I’ve been to Thailand 8 times and I’ve now added a couple of extra to my list. Great work mate ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Good list… although I have yet to need a plug adapter after 8 trips. Snacks for the plane would be a good add. I personally buy a lot of those personal items on arrival as the cost isnโ€™t that much more and I just have to carry less. I whole heartily agree with the over the counter meds. Nice to not have to find a pharmacy at 2am when you have it coming out both ends. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. And always take a photocopy of your Passport, (front page + Visa page if applies) and keep it in your wallet, you don’t want to be walking around Bangcock with your passport in your pocket.
