Top Things to Pack For Your Bali Getaway – Preparing For An Amazing Holiday

A tropical island paradise that has something for everyone, Bali in Indonesia is a dream destination. Of course, you should give some thought about what you will need to take as well; here are some useful tips on what to pack that will help make your holiday even more enjoyable.


Dry Bags

Be it for sudden downpours, when snorkelling or diving or even when at the beach, dry bags are handy to have around. Such bags offer that extra protection and will keep items like your phone, camera or any travel documents dry. On an added note, having a waterproof case for your phone will also be useful.


Water Filter Bottle

When it comes to water, refrain from drinking straight out of the tap. Of course, many tourists tend to buy bottled water which is mostly sold in plastic bottles that sadly harm the environment. A remedy for this is to use a water filter bottle; while it has its own in-built filter that will purify tap water it is reusable too.


A Travel Guide to Bali

Even in this digital era, it helps to have a good old-fashioned travel guide with you; besides, you may not always have internet connectivity and Google to help with maps or translations! A paperback travel guide thus becomes quite useful be it for a tourist or even someone in search of Bali homes for sale who wants to find out practical information about a particular area.



Effective sunscreen is a must because chances are you will be spending a lot of time in the sun, working on your tan or having fun adventures! Be you at a Seminyak resort by the beach or at residences more inland at properties like Anantara Ubud Bali Villas make sure to lather a good amount of sunscreen; ideally, choose one that is SPF 30 or higher and has UVB and UVA filters.


Shawls /Sarongs

You will likely be visiting religious sites or temples in Bali; in such instances, do remember you need to dress appropriately covering bare shoulders and legs. A convenient option would be to have a sarong or shawl with you to cover up just for your visit to such sacred sites. You do find some temples that rent out sarongs, but this way you have one with you always handy.



Having a daypack is quite useful since you are likely to go on half or full-day excursions and it will not be practical to carry around a huge backpack. Daypacks are light and can store all the essentials you will need for the day be it water, food / snacks, camera, towel or even an extra t-shirt or shorts.


Insect Repellent

Depending on when and where you go to in Bali, you may have to deal with bugs or mosquitoes. In such instances, it's worth having insect repellent with you. Some accommodation options may even have mosquito nets for you to sleep under, though if they make you feel claustrophobic, insect or mosquito repellent is a good alternative.
