Choose appropriate clothing and bring a waterproof bag

First and foremost, select clothing suitable for the rainy season. IKEA suggests bringing a lightweight raincoat and waterproof shoes to keep you dry during your travels. Also, be sure to bring a compact and easily stored umbrella, like IKEA's lightweight and functional umbrella. A waterproof bag is a wise investment during the rainy season. IKEA has a stylish and practical collection of waterproof Travel bags, one of which is the PIVRING. With this bag, you can rest assured that your valuables stay dry even in heavy rain.

Proper route planning and accommodation considerations

When planning your trip, pay attention to the weather and choose destinations suitable for the rainy season. If possible, avoid routes prone to flooding or landslides. IKEA recommends using current weather apps and online maps to ensure you choose a safe route. Comfortable and waterproof accommodation is key to a successful trip during the rainy season. IKEA offers creative ideas to enhance the comfort of your accommodation, such as bringing the waterproof SOTNÄTFJÄRIL portable mattress protector or the cozy and warm SANDMOTT decorative pillow.

Maintain health, hygiene, and choose activities

The rainy season can increase the risk of illness. Bring basic health supplies such as medicines, wet tissues, and hand sanitizer. IKEA provides a stylish and functional collection of health supplies to ensure you stay healthy during your travels. If the rain is too heavy for outdoor exploration, choose interesting indoor activities. IKEA suggests bringing lightweight board games or reading a long-desired book. This is a great way to stay entertained despite unfavorable weather.

Plan meals, drinks, and personal care

Plan food and drinks wisely. Bring light snacks and enough drinking water for the trip. IKEA has the BEHÖVD vacuum flask and FJÄRMA Food container, perfect for carrying your favorite food and drinks. Wet weather can affect skin and hair health. Bring personal care products like moisturizer and dry shampoo to maintain your appearance. Choose environmentally friendly and travel-friendly personal care products.

Share your experience

Finally, don't hesitate to share your experience. Use social media or travel apps to motivate and provide tips to fellow travelers. IKEA has an online platform that can be used to share ideas and experiences with a global travel community.

By considering these tips and adding creative touches from IKEA, you can make your rainy season travel an unforgettable experience.
