Medication / First Aid

Making provision for regular prescription is an obvious choice. It is however advised to take small amounts of over the counter supplies which include pain killers, anti allergy medication and nausea medication among other items.


Inflatable Travel Pillow

The inflatable pillow is arguably one of the best inventions of our time. Not only is it light and portable it also assures for a good and healthy rest before you reach your business destination.


Plug Adapter

Imagine reaching your country of business and not being able to charge your electronics, use a hairdryer. A universal adapter is a vital item for any business traveller.


Voltage Converter

Power points across the globe differ in voltage and this might not only be damaging to your electrical devices but can destroy them permanently.

Many electronics have built-in adapters that can handle voltages from 110-240 volts, meaning you won’t need an expensive and bulky voltage converter.


Noise-cancelling headphones

You will thank these when you are trying to get some work done on route or planning to switch off and recuperate before your next business meeting.

Water Bottle

You body will stay hydrated, thus your brain will be more alert. You will save yourself the expense of buying water in another currency and you save yourself the hazard of possibly consuming toxins. These are some of the advantages of carrying your own water bottle.



Do your company proud by staying punctual even in a foreign city by not getting lost.


USB Drive / External Hard Drive

Save that important pitch or company on various devices- in case the technical demon creeps in.


Wireless Mouse

This just makes it easier to carry your electronic devices around- one less cable to carry around.


Extended Life Battery

One does not always have access to power point and you do not want your laptop dying on you just before that major selling point in your business presentation






Travelling for work doesn’t mean you can’t experience everything a city has to offer!

Trough this article you will be guided to get the mosT out of five major business destinations.



Rich and crispy-skinned, Peking duck is Beijing’s signature dish. One of the best versions is at Duck de Chine, an industrial-chic space in the energetic Chaoyang district that’s perfect for a lunch meeting. After dark, head to the 80th floor of the China World Summit Wing hotel to talk strategy at Atmosphere, the city’s highest bar. The views stretch for miles, taking in Tiananmen Square and the mountains beyond.



Need to confer with colleagues before the day begins? Leonhard’s, on the top floor of the Galeria Kaufhof department store near the financial district, serves cappuccinos and buttery croissants on an outdoor terrace.

For a cocktail bar that’s upscale (and quiet) enough for entertaining clients, head to either the Parlour or Sullivan, located off pedestrian-only Zeil street.



London’s modern-Peruvian hot spot, Coya, opened an outpost at the Four Seasons Resort Dubai. It’s now one of the most sought-after tables in a city known for attention-grabbing restaurants. How to make the most of a visit to the Burj Khalifa the world’s tallest building? A 9 p.m. reservation to see the observation deck on the 148th floor, then drinks at the buzzy Privé club in the tower’s Armani Hotel.

Call it a late-night teambuilding session.




São Paulo

At Maní, ranked one of the world’s best restaurants and a go-to spot for a deal-making meal, stylish creatives and young finance types linger over dishes like foie gras bonbons and crayfish moqueca (stew). Keep the evening going at the historic bar Riviera, which was recently revived by star chef Alex Atala. Or sample something from the long list of cachaças (pictured), Brazil’s signature sugarcane liquor, at Empório Sagarana, in Vila Madalena—and then pick up a bottle to bring home.


Las Vegas

Ante up for a dinner at Mix at the Delano where chef Alain Ducasse’s menu has expense-account-worthy items like filet mignon with foie gras and black-truffle sauce. If you want to take things down a notch, try heading north of the Strip, where the bars are more Brooklyn than Vegas. One of the best: Scullery, a light-filled spot serving digestive-based cocktails and charcuterie platters.
