The Ultimate Vacation Guide Series: Nature Lovin’
An escape into the woods, surrounded by Mother Nature and all it’s glory? Sign us up and take all our money! But in all seriousness, some time away from the hustle and bustle of technology can do you good, so what better place to start than in Asia? If you’re up for an adventure, here’s what you need to put in your checklist.
#Checklist 1: Activewear

Since you’ll be doing a whole lot of hiking, walking and maybe even extreme sports, your usual T-shirt and shorts will do you no good. Invest in proper activewear that’ll suit your needs, as every type of activity requires different materials. A good sportswear will protect you, and they won’t tear easily. Besides, a lot of them are so comfortable that you can even wear them casually!
#Checklist 2: SPF Products
Ladies, if there’s one thing we constantly stress about, it’s that you need SPF to protect your skin. Yes, even while indoors! It’s important to carry SPF with you at all times (especially under the sun) because it shields your skin from UV Rays, thus avoiding any damages or sunburns. Lucky for us, there’s a variety of choices now, which includes SPF make-up and toners, so there’s no excuse for you to skip this step.
#Checklist 3: Caps

Just like your skin, your head needs protection too. Yes, we’re aware that caps can’t stop rocks from falling on your head as you go mountain-climbing (ouch), but they can protect you from the sun. Too much exposure under the sun might give you a headache, and we don’t want you to get sick on your vacation. There are cute ones available, and they add extra points to your OOTD game.
#Checklist 4: Sneakers

Your activewear, SPF products and caps should always be accompanied by sneakers! Pretty self-explanatory here, since covered feet are always better when it comes to activities in the sun. You wouldn’t want dirt, rocks or mud on your bare feet! And if you’re planning to go swimming in the waterfalls, just bring an extra pair of socks and then you can continue on your trail after.
This is optional, as it really depends on where you’re headed. While some places allow you to swim in just tees and shorts, proper swimwear will do wonders. One-piece swimsuits are your best bet if you’re planning to swim in nature, as they won’t fall off easily. (You can keep the bikinis for OOTDs later)
