Nobody likes dipping their toes in the water. This is a problem that is especially prevalent in locations that are susceptible to flash floods. So why not include rain boots, a must-have item of rainy-day apparel? Rain boots will undoubtedly be a useful addition to your rainy-day wardrobe if you want to escape the trouble of waiting for the heavy rain and flood to stop.

Ziplock bags

When traveling, always have a few waterproof plastic bags with you. Your valuables, such as your cell phone, chargers, power banks, credit cards, and cash will be protected from moisture and other damage when traveling in these plastic bags.

Extra Clothes

Since we’re talking about you being wet, it’s not difficult to visualize yourself getting wet. This is when a new set of clothes will come in handy. Extra footwear is also required. You shouldn’t be afraid to wear flip-flops because you’re in a tropical country. They’re not just a summer favorite; they also come in handy throughout the rainy season. 

First-aid Kit

Since the pandemic is still going on, a first-aid kit is needed. Add additional face masks, alcohol, hand sanitizer, and tissues to your bag. Basic medications are beneficial to have on hand because the rainy season increases our susceptibility to colds, flu, and cough. Never skip a vitamin dose; prevention is always preferable to cure.

Regardless of how well you prepare for the rain, there is always a danger that you will get soaked. Therefore, during the rainy season, always pack a towel. Towels made of microfibre are best since they dry quickly and are very absorbent.

You can minimize the hassles along with this rainy season by planning. It is preferable to be extra prepared and dry than to be wet afterward regretfully.
