In most Asian hotels (budget) they don't give you towels to use, and if they do you only get one and not always a high quality one. Packing towels is bulky and the ones that dry fast aren't much fun to use. What I do is take a hand towel and use that, and also a sarong to dry myself as these are much easier to dry and also to fold up and travel with. Some towels look so nasty that you don't want to use them, so from a hygiene perspective I would recommend taking a towel with you to Asian countries unless you are staying in a 4 or 5 star hotel. Do you take towels with you, or don't mind the hotel towels?
