If you’re poorly prepared, air travel can be challenging. But there’s no need to worry. Follow these handy hints for a comfortable start to your vacation in Hat Yai.What to pack in your hand luggage:
A plane ride can be a great experience if you take the right gear. Firstly, you’ll need toiletry items, such as toothpaste, a toothbrush and some deodorant, a clean set of clothes and a good read. Next, make room in your carry-on bag for your electronic gadgets, chargers, medications and perhaps a cozy neck pillow as well. Lastly, be sure to take your passport, travel documents and some money.
Check carefully that you don’t have sharp or pointed objects hiding in one of the compartments of your hand luggage. Other restricted items include explosive or flammable goods, such as fuel and matches, and gels and liquids in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
Comfort really should be your highest priority when deciding what to wear during your flight. Consider your footwear choice carefully too, as swollen ankles and feet are a common side effect of flying. Slightly roomy, flat shoes are your best bet.
The serious condition known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a potential risk on long-haul flights. It results from blood clotting due to poor circulation. Walking around the cabin and doing regular foot and leg exercises in your seat is a great way to prevent this occurring. Wearing a quality pair of compression tights or socks may also help.
The answer is — be prepared. We’ve rounded up some useful tips for a hassle-free trip through airport security. Watch out Hat Yai, here you come:
Your boarding pass and travel ID will need to be presented to security personnel. Keep them within easy reach so you don’t hold up the queue.
The X-ray machine is up next. Empty your pockets and remove anything that is likely to set off the scanner’s alarm. This includes items like headphones or earphones, as well as heavy jackets or coats. They’ll all need to go on the X-ray conveyor belt.
For just a few minutes, you’ll need to unplug from technology. Your laptop, phone and any other electronic gadgets will need to go through the scanner.
Any gels or liquids, such as shampoo or hand cream, that you want to take on board must be no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). Also, they all must fit inside a quart-size (one liter), zip-lock bag.
Lightweight sneakers are a clever footwear choice as you’re less likely to be asked to remove them when passing through security. Hiking boots and other heavy shoes are often subjected to additional screening.
Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp objects like a pocket knife or tools, put them in your checked baggage. They won’t be allowed in the cabin.
