Few holiday destinations have a reputation quite like Malia, in Crete. This small town has a big reputation as a key party destination, but just what do you need to make a trip here unforgettable for all the right reasons?
Before you head off on your Malia holidays, you must know what to pack for a holiday. Create a checklist to ensure you have the following five essentials with you when you land.
1: Hand luggage essentials
As boring as it is, you need to make sure you've got all of your travel documents with you. These include your passport, tickets, boarding pass and any holiday information you might have. The last thing you want is to be stranded at the airport after being told you can't board the flight because you don't have the right documentation.
2: The right clothing
It's highly unlikely that you'll get any washing done on your trip, so think about how many outfits you'll want as you will probably be wearing something different in the evening. A great way to determine what you need is to consider your itinerary, the weather and whether there will be any fancy dress events you want to attend.
This is a surprisingly easy one to forget. With the amount of drinking you're likely to carry out, your toothbrush will come in really handy and will ensure you have fresh breath if you decide to embark on a holiday fling or two!
You might think you won't need much entertainment, but there will be times you'll really appreciate it. Magazines, books and your iPod are the top three entertainment items to pack and can be used on the plane or in the hotel room while you're waiting for everyone else to get ready.
5: Your mobile phone
It's important to have a mobile phone with you at all times, but do keep in mind the roaming charges you may face if you use it. Before you go, check to see which provider offers the best deals abroad.
A mobile phone will give you peace of mind if you get stranded anywhere. There may be times when you need to contact others in your party.
These are the top five essentials you should pack for your Malia holiday. If you pack right it will help you to make the most of your holiday. Plan ahead so you don't have to worry about anything other than having a good time while you're there.
