Travel documents are really considered significant than any other item, so one has to pack his travel papers safely. Every single document or paper has its significance, so never miss any of these mentioned materials. Passport, visa, travel insurance and tickets should be given a great care while packing. They should be double enveloped in plastic wraps and should be kept in a safe place in your bag. It's also important to carry a copy of these documents along with the original ones, keep the genuine papers somewhere safe - may be in a safe deposit box of your hotel or give it in your hotel reception. For instance when in Malaysia, the Melia Hotel Kuala Lumpur is one of the best hotels in the city where your belongings will be safe enough. Take the photocopies with you while going out to surf the streets, to sightseeing and while shopping. You should also keep a set of these copies at your home, so that when these are lost you can have them there when needed. Also scan all the documents (especially every page of the passport) and attach them in your email. If suppose you have lost the hard copies, the soft copies in the electronic mail will never let you down.
While traveling to a strange city or country, you should definitely take your identity proofs along with you. Your driving license or employee identity card where you will have a photo of yours stuck will help you in so many ways. So keep these essentials in an appropriate slot or in your back bag or in your wallet for making it more safe. Do not take the originals out of home, just take the photocopies alone.

Medicinal kit and a first aid kit need to be dropped in your main baggage. The kit should have all medicines that would heel wounds, cracks and fire burns. And also take antibiotics to treat fever, cough and flu that may commonly affect anyone while on a different weather condition. Multivitamin tablets will help your body to gain enough energy that you will need for a healthy trip. These supplements act as a substitute for healthy food, as you can't expect energetic dishes in a tour destination. If any of your family members consume a regular drug then take the prescription along. Most cities will not sell you certain drugs without the doctor's prescription.
These are the top significant things to be taken along. Apart from these items one has to concentrate on other things as well. The clothing he wears should suit the climate, the accessories like sunglasses, umbrellas, rain jackets, hats and umbrellas should be taken according to the necessity. Do not take too many things and make your bag bulgy.
