size of backpack

Postby i_schneider » Mon Dec 31, 2012 8:30 pm

i'm doing the cambodia & laos mekong trip. I have an 80L backpack but i think it might be too big. Any suggestions on a good size to take? 15 days long, and laundry services available. Thanks in advance.

Take nothing larger than a 60 litre. In brought a 45 litre backpack for one month traveling in that region and had plenty of room for souvenirs. You can buy things extremely cheap there if you need to.

I second that...I too take a 60L backpack regardless of how long my trip.
DO THE RIGHT THING ...all the time, every time!
