When you study abroad, of course, you would pack your luggage with all of the best local snacks and food to soothe your tummy when you’re feeling homesick. Apparently, the same goes to fellow travellers as well.
While some may fill up their luggage with different clothes every hour of the day for different occasions — the others, well..
Ever wonder what’s inside the luggage of Asian travellers? You’ll be surprised to discover that there are probably more food than clothes:
1. Sweatshirt, Samyang & SPAM
Raymond Yu from Subtle Asian Traits on Facebook stated that Samyang & SPAM are his top priorities as he returns to Australia for his studies.
Who needs clothes when you have food… right? 😋

2. 5kg Worth Of Instant Noodles & Salted Egg Chips
Our editor Nadia filled up half of her luggage with these goodies for her trip to Amsterdam and guess what?
All of the food weighed 5kg! Yes, it was apparently very máfan and she pledges to never do this again in the future. 🙃
3. A Full Bag of Salted Egg Yolk Chips
Meanwhile, Colin shared that he dedicated his entire luggage to these fish skin goods. Talk about preparing for winter!
As we all know, Salted Egg Chips makes a good snacking sensation when you’re watching Netflix, or for when you are burning the late-night oil to complete your assignments.
4. Not Just Ramen Noodles
Another student, Michelle, revealed that when she visited her family for the holidays, her mom insisted for Michelle to pack light because they’re going to go on a shopping spree.
Our initial thought is for clothes, but apparently, what her sweet mama meant was to stock up lots and lots of Asian snacks for her daughter. Aww!
