Best Travel Towel

Putting those normal bath towels you use at home on your packing lists is a big no-no. Being big, bulky, and slow to dry makes them terrible for travel. The last thing you want to do is have to pack up a wet towel into your luggage. On arrival, there’s bound to be a musty stench to deal with. Yuck.

Are Turkish towels good for travel? You better believe it!

Why the Best Travel Towel is a Turkish Towel

In recent years, they’ve grown in popularity as beach/pool towels, travel towels, and even as gym towels (I take mine to the gym!) thanks to their large size, high absorbency level, and quick-drying nature.

What are Turkish Towels?

Even though they are cotton (which is not typically on our quick-dry clothing and travel gear list), they dry fairly quickly.

They’re thin.

The size is not even comparable to pack towels, but since the material is thin, they still pack up small.

They actually cover you up.

Unlike the sticky feeling of other pack towels, like my old faithful from Kathmandu, Turkish towels pat down more like a normal towel given the fluffy thread of Turkish cotton.

They’re soft on your skin.

All thanks to Turkish cotton.

Absorbency is high.
