How to prepare on your trip to Indonesia
THINGS TO BRING FOR YOUR TRIP TO INDONESIA
It is between 29 and 32 degrees all year round in Bali, and between 24 and 26 degrees in the evening by the sea. Light clothing is therefore sufficient. However, remember to take a light jacket if you go up in the heights, it can be cooler (21 to 22 degrees in the mountains). If you come during periods of rain, bring a raincoat, or you can buy a poncho on site. Also remember to take a bag pack, practical during visits (shoulder strap style, banana etc.).
Remember that to be able to visit the temples you have to cover your shoulders and legs. You can also buy sarong on site. There is also no need to bring towels; all hotels will provide them to make your Bali vacation more enjoyable.
You can possibly bring a flashlight, especially if you plan to climb Mount Batur which is one of the activities not to be missed during a stay in Bali. Here, the streets are rarely lit and night falls around 6 p.m.
All hotels have an inexpensive laundry service. Think practical, leave some space in your luggage for souvenirs when you return to remember your Bali vacation for a long time.
These will be of great help to you, just like soothing creams if you get bitten. You can also buy them on site.
If you choose sports routes during your trip to Bali and Indonesia, consider taking sports clothing (lycra type etc.). For Ijen or Batur volcano hikes, a pair of good tennis shoes is enough.
Protective sunglasses and cream are essential. You can buy hats on site. You can buy hats on the spot. Think of a practical bag during the visits (shoulder strap style, banana etc …).
It is not necessary to bring towels, all hotels will provide them. You will have the possibility to buy sarong on the spot, it is practical and it does not take up space. Remember, to visit the temples you have to cover your shoulders and legs.
There is a free porter service in all hotels. Bring a flashlight (especially if you plan to climb Mont Batur).
In Indonesia the standard voltage is 230 V and the frequency is 50 Hz. You can use your electric appliances in Indonesia, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220 – 240 V (as is in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa). Manufacturers take these small deviations into account. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100 V – 127 V (as is in the US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a voltage converter in Indonesia. You can also consider a combined power plug adapter/voltage converter.
