5 Must-Haves for Traveling in San Francisco
San Francisco is a city of wonders, from the famous Golden Gate Bridge to the huge selection of eateries around every block. It is also a city of micro-climates and suffers a rising number of homeless people.

1. Better to be dry than sorry
2. Always carry extra layers
Being in a microclimate means that some parts of the city may be showering, and the other part of the city may be bright and sunny. On top of having an umbrella handy, always bring an extra layer of clothing in case the temperature drops substantially. It is not unusual to feel 5 degrees colder or hotter just within a few blocks. Don’t be afraid to dish out that favorite jacket of yours when you go out and about for long.
3. Noise-cancelling saves the day
I cannot recall the number of times I’ve been in a situation where some rude person would not stop swearing profusely across the bus, or someone decided that boombox is meant to be blasted in public transportation. Other times were homeless/sketchy people doing questionable behaviors to gain attention. Luckily the Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones WH1000XM3 got me out of these countless uncomfortable situations during my daily commutes. Another good alternative to the Sony WH1000XM-3 are the Bose QuietComfort lineups, specifically the Bose QuietComfort 35 II. Currently I own both of them and these go head-to-head in terms of build quality, sound quality, and connectivity options.
4. Backpack is not the only pack you’ll need. Don’t forget about battery pack!
Note: As of this writing, there is a 20% off coupon available which brings the final price down to $30.33 before tax and handling.
5. Can I borrow a lightning cable? Sorry I only have one for USB-C.
