Miss Universe Thailand Chalita Suansane told us she brought eight suitcases to the Philippines for this Miss Universe competition and she definitely’s not the only one. Miss Universe Cayman Islands Monyque Brooks also told us she brought seven bags. You can never be over prepared!

2. Pack a suitcase just for shoes

You’re probably bringing a lot of shoes to the Miss Universe competition. As Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach says, bring a suitcase just for your shoes!

You can pack your National Costume or ship it! Miss Universe Malaysia Kiranmeet Kaur Baljeet Singh told us she used one and half suitcases to pack her National Costume. However, Miss Universe Barbados Shannon Harris said she shipped part of her National Costume to the Philippines, because it was too big to take on the plane.

4. Make a packing list

Make a list of everything you want to bring ahead of time to ensure that you don’t forget anything!

Be prepared for both rain and shine during a trip the Philippines. Also, it is currently quite warm in the country! Expect high temperatures of around 85°F/29°C for the rest of January.

6. Bring essential items on the plane with you

Don’t want to risk something valuable (like an expensive evening gown) being stolen? Bring it on the plane with you in a garment bag or your carry-on bag to ensure that it arrives safely!

7. Bring something that reminds you of home

For example: your country’s flag! Hang it in your room at Miss Universe with pride.
