What to pack for Portugal
A Portuguese phrase book
Though many travellers can manage a few words next-door when visiting Spain, Portuguese basics are not as widely known. Pack a Portuguese phrase book so you can attempt conversations and courtesies to the praise of locals.
A sun hat
Enjoying over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, Portugal’s warm and sunny climate calls for an oversized hat. It’s also the perfect way to complete your outfit for a day at the beach or taking guided walks of the cities.
An appetite for seafood
Visiting an alfresco cafe for an abundant seafood meal is a daily – sometimes twice daily – occurrence on a Portugal trip. With reasonable price tags, pack an appetite for seafood and prepare to indulge.
A camera with a wide lens
Known for its remarkable countryside and beautiful beaches, a wide-angle lens will see you perfectly capturing the landscapes of Portugal.
Little markets and hole in the wall cafes may not accept card as payment. Carry euros on hand so that you never get stuck or miss out on a unique souvenir.
