ASIA Travel

As frequent travellers many of us will always have one eye open for products that offer the latest in technology, personal grooming, or other such gear that can help us on our travels.

After all, we spend what seems to be half our lives in airports of different qualities all attempting to lure us into spending our hard earned cash, and more often than not, new technology can help us to save on the amount of things that we need to carry.

With this new section of the website we will be reviewing some of the latest products to hit the streets and some that are still to come. We will be looking at some of the best travel gear for you, some fashion ideas, the latest in hardware such as mobile phones, cameras etc., the latest in Duty Free sales and many other cool gear for the leisure and business traveller.

Many of the travel gear we feature are products we use ourselves, so we have every confidence in promoting them.

Travel Tripod/Monopod Combination

Whether you are a professional photographer, or just enjoy taking pictures while on your travels, the Sirui N-2004 tripod/monopod combination is a perfect choice.

The Sirui N-2004 tripod weighs 1.6 kg and folds up into a neat little package that measures just 46 cm in length. It comes complete with a well made case with shoulder strap and passed handle.

When fully extended the tripod has a maximum height of 1.65 m (excluding the ball head), and one of the legs detaches completely to give you a strong monopod when you need one.

As you can see from this HD video, the Sirui N-2004 is well made, sturdy and comes with all the accessories you need. A great way to lighten your load when travelling! Read more about the: Sirui N-2004 Travel Tripod/Monopod Combination.

The Kindle

Our favourite travel tech gadget of them all is the Kindle.

The Kindle has replaced the need to carry heavy books when travelling, and it can house over 1,400 e-books so you never have to worry about running out of things to read while you are on the road.

Depending on where you live, the Kindle is often connected to your Amazon account, which means buying new books has never been easier, and despite a few authors charging too much for their e-creations, many books are cheaper than in the shops and often free!

Shaving Oil

You may think it a little strange to have shaving oil on a travel gear / tech page, but Nuage Shaving Oil lasts for about one month and is just 20ml, so you can easily carry it on an aircraft. It costs only £1 in the UK.

Why carry larger, heavier shaving gels/foams when you can travel lighter with shaving oil?

 Of course it does not have to be the brand we highlight, most shaving oils are in very small, light packaging, though not necessarily as cheap as the £1 that the Nuage Shaving Oil costs.

Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 with ICS

Samsung Galaxy Note

As soon as this phone, or phablet as some like to call it, came out, we just new it was going to be a hit! Regardless of whether you buy the original version, or one of the faster and newer versions, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a perfect travel companion.

Not only are they fast to operate, they are large enough to make surfing etc enjoyable.

The S-pen that it comes with is more useful than you may imagine, and the ability to write on pictures and make notes really does come in handy at times.

More to come. See also our guide to Buying Electronics when overseas.
