No matter which far-off exotic location it is that you plan to go, you should always pack first your important personal effects. Your passport, credit cards, ATM card, cellphone and a couple of ID’s. Make sure that you only have enough **cash **to last for the entire trip bringing too much is not really a good idea. Just use your credit card and ATM for real cash emergencies so that you will not be tempted to overspend. Keep all your personal effects in a separate, smaller bag inside your luggage or just carry them with you for safety purposes.
