Traveloka X Shopee: Balik Kampung in comfort with these 10 travel essentials

By Shopee Malaysia

Raya is just around the corner, and we all know what that means! Aren’t we excited to balik kampung and indulge in the never-ending selection of Raya cuisine, each relative and neighbor promising their rendang is better than the others or their kuih raya are simply out of this world?

For others, Raya is the perfect time to travel and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. However you’ll be spending the holiday this year, here are the top 10 items to make your next journey as comfortable as it can be.

Zip It, lock It!

Luggage Padlocks: Travel with a peace of mind. Get padlocks for all the luggage bags or suitcases that you want to store out of sight. Don’t let your dream vacation turn into a travel nightmare to see your valuables stolen or worse, to have somebody stashing illegal items into your suitcase!

All Covered Up!

Passport Holder: Don’t you think your most important document needs to travel in style too?

Pick a passport holder or cover that stands out, is easy to dig out from your bag and above all, protects your passport from small accidents like a spill or food stains. We don’t want anyone to cry over spilled milk here.

Make yours special by putting on a unique cover so that it also stands out from the rest. Makes it easier to find too, don’t you think?

Keep It Clean!

Wet Wipes: Ladies, your make-up should be on your face, not the pillow or your partner’s shirt sleeve. So, after a couple of hours of traveling, free your skin from cosmetics that can clog your pores and trigger pimples just before Raya!

For the gents, you’ll learn that these magical sheets will make your travel a lot more convenient too, especially when washing hands while stopping at an R&R or if the plane’s bathroom is constantly occupied.

Music Doth Soothe the (Hungry) Beast!

Earphones: Keep your tummy distracted with Raya songs, as long as it’s not about kuih raya or ketupat!

If you’re traveling with family or friends, earphones allow each of you to enjoy your own preferred music selection without offending anyone when you’re listening to ABBA or Modern Talking. Happy listening!

This Music is Relaxing; I Think I’m Getting Sleepy…

Neck Pillow: Take a nap while traveling so you’ll arrive at your destination looking fresh and well-rested. The inflatable ones can be as comfortable as the cushioned ones too!

Just find which one works and you’re set for a nice lovely nap.

Sunshine is Not a Friend of Mine!

Eye masks: Music? Check! Neck pillow? Check!

Still can’t sleep? Whip out the eye mask that you brought along and voila! Welcome to the dark side, my friend! And snooze away…

Sunny Side Up!

Sunglasses: Sunshine, lollipops and rainbow! What more can you ask for? Oh, yeah, perhaps a good pair of sunglasses to stop you from squinting in your travel selfies!

While you’re enjoying the sun, having the right protection for your eyes is also essential to ensure your eyes stay fresh throughout your trip.

Ready, Set and Snap Away!

Phone Camera Lens: Play around with your smartphone and attach different lens to get the perfect camera shot for your Instagram.

Clip on these camera lens on your phone and bring out your inner photographer. While you’re at it, don’t forget a selfie stick to snap the biggest, most cheerful wefie with Atuk, Mak, Abah, Brother, Sister, Cousin Ali, Third Cousin Wani’s triplets and the list goes on!

Juice Boost! Never run out of power

Power Bank: Let’s get real, can you really travel without one? There’s always somebody to text, call and share photos with especially during this festive season.

So, charge up so your gadget will have the same boundless energy as you do when you go open-house-hopping.

Stay powered up when you’re out and about with a large powerbank and always have enough juice to keep you going.

Before I Wake…

Universal Travel Adapter: Done for the day? Make sure you recharge all your devices because tomorrow is another Raya Day for all of us. A nifty travel adapter prepares you for whatever plug point you encounter.
