Packing Necessities For A Weekend In Galle

Everything you’ll need for a stress-free trip.

The Galle Literary Festival begins tomorrow and many of you are probably heading down south for the entire length of the event or just for the weekend. Hello, sun and sea! Packing can always be a bit of a nightmare, whether it’s for a couple of days out-of-town, a business trip or a month overseas. We’ve got you covered on what essentials you need to take. Soon you’ll be packing like a pro in no time!

Choose Proper Luggage

If it’s for just a day or two, we’d definitely recommend a bag that’s easy to carry; preferably a duffel or backpack. Planning to do a fair bit of walking? Then it’s a good idea to stick with a backpack. The straps will distribute weight evenly across your shoulders and save you from any aches.  

Take A Water Bottle

The heat can get pretty bad and if you’re planning to spend time in the sun, it’s always best to stay hydrated. Grab a lightweight, refillable bottle before you hit the road. You’ll thank yourself for it. Promise!

Protect Yourself From The Sun

On a similar note, to avoid any nasty sun strokes, burns or headaches, pack a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. 


We know you’re going to hit the beach if you’re heading to Galle! So ladies, don’t forget your bikinis.

Zippered Plastic Bag

Stuck with a wet swimsuit after jumping into the ocean? Pack a zippered bag – any plastic bag will do, really – and you’re good to go. This is also a lifesaver when containing leaky liquids, like contact lens solution or body lotion. The spills won’t ruin your bag and clothes.

A Sarong

You can wear this large piece of fabric traditionally, draped across your waist and tucked into the folds, or in a host of other ways. Wear it as a scarf or dress; spread it out as a blanket on the beach; roll it into a pillow; fold and knot it into a bag and so much more. 


Of course, you don’t want to forget your camera or phone to capture some amazing memories with your friends or S.O. So make room for it in your bag and remember to pack chargers and adapters so your device doesn’t die on you!
