What should I pack when moving to Subic Bay?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Subic Bay to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Subic Bay, it's important to pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. Include items like shorts, t-shirts, and sundresses, as well as a light jacket or sweater for cooler evenings. Don't forget to pack a good pair of walking shoes and sandals for the beach. Swimwear is a must, as Subic Bay is known for its beautiful beaches and water activities. Also, consider packing a hat, sunglasses, and plenty of sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Bring along any prescription medications you may need, as well as a basic first aid kit. It's also a good idea to pack insect repellent and any necessary vaccinations for tropical diseases. If you plan on working or studying, bring any necessary documents, electronics, and work materials. Pack a power adapter for your electronics, as the Philippines uses a different plug type than many other countries. Don't forget to bring personal hygiene products, although most of these can also be purchased locally. Lastly, pack some comfort items from home, like your favorite snacks or books, to help you settle into your new home," explained one expat living in Subic Bay, Philippines.
