Travel Gear: SCARF

Why does this item deserve an entire entry? One word: versatile. Never leave home without it.

Where to get them: If you’re in Asia, they abound in night markets or in bazaars.

Cost: Between US$ 1 TO 2.

1.     Neck scarf. To keep you warm from cooler weather

2.     Your pass to enter religious places: Instead of having to use the public garments (and sometimes pay for it), this nifty scarf has saved me a lot of times!

Hindu Bali requires a waistband

3.     Sun protection. In the absence of a hat, a scarf will do.

5.     Works well as a shawl too.
