Packing Light For Bangkok

I am flying to Bangkok, Thailand this evening, and will be spending several days there. I plan to fill my coming days with plenty of great local Thai food and of course shutter therapy at the locations that I will visit. I am currently writing this article from the airport waiting for my flight!


I have decided to use a small camera bag by Manfrotto (not sure which model this is, but it is very small). I am including the following items into the bag:

1) Olympus PEN E-PL9 
I just wanted to go as light as I can, using the PEN makes sense!
2) M.Zuiko 7-14mm F2.8 PRO
I did not want to use this lens but I admit when I arrive at some of the most beautiful and majestic temples in the world in Thailand, I will regret not having this lens. Hence this would be the only PRO lens in the bag.
3) M.Zuiko 17mm F1.8
I plan to do a lot of street shooting while in Bangkok, but I also realize 17mm is not my favourite lens. This is the "just in case" lens, and why not, since it is so small?
4) M.Zuiko 25mm F1.8
This will probably be my most used lens for this trip. I even had an idea to do everything with just 25mm lens. Who knows, that plan may just happen.
5) M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8
Portrait of strangers in Bangkok streets, maybe?
6) Plenty of SD cards
7) 3 batteries (one is in the camera)
8) Beyerdynamic Byron BT
Can't survive long without high fidelity audio

I am on a holiday and I will not be shooting anything too seriously. Hence the minimalist setup. I would have left the 7-14mm behind but part of me wanted to do some awesome landscape shots too.

I have no fixed agenda laid out for this particular trip. I am travelling with a friend so we will do some touristy things and eat a lot of food surely. I also have an Olympus photo sharing session on the coming Wednesday, 9th January 2019 at Olympus Store in Central World shopping mall.

I think this will be an adventurous trip! I am extremely excited and I cannot think of a better way to start the new year 2019.
