We’ve all experienced this, especially when we’re in a Western country — after multiple meals of steak, salad, pasta and sandwiches, we find ourselves hankering for a steaming, MSG-laden cup of instant noodles. Which is why it’s not unusual to find Singaporeans packing more than a dozen of them for a long trip.

The answer is revealed in a study by Lowcostholidays.com, along with edibles (and other inedible must-haves) that travellers of other nationalities take with them on their trips. Click through above and see if they are what you thought them to be.
