Bali Travel Tips

Family Tips

When traveling to Bali we recommend that you don't take too much gear - particularly clothing, as it is cheap and plentiful when you get here. The weather can be hot and the basic clothing to wear is light, cool and casual .This includes going out to restaurants and daily street wear. Take an empty suitcase and fill it as you go. Forget the washing until you get home ( Although in many of the smaller hotels and local laundries you can get your clothes washed and pressed at really good prices).

Carry a couple of knapsacks onto the plane as they’ll be handy to carry around gear during your holiday. Your kids can pack this with some of their favorite things to keep them busy at the airport and on the plane on the way to Bali.

Reconfirm your airline reservation 24 hours prior to departure because airline carriers frequently overbook. Your hotel receptionist will do this for you.

ATM's are the best way to get cash you can get it as you need it. Best to always take cash with you when you go shopping because not all places in Bali accept credit cards. Avoid displaying large sums of cash in public.

It is better for you and your family to catch a taxi when you want to go somewhere. Alternatively you could get a private driver and car.  They will drive you wherever you wish to go.

We all hear a lot of stories about "Bali Belly". The advent of purified bottled water has taken the island by storm. You can buy the water at many of the small supermarket shops around the place and it is relatively cheap. Use it for drinking and brushing your teeth and avoid tap water at all costs.

Most of the good restaurants use it to prepare food and use ice made with purified water in drinks. As with most trips use good hygiene and common sense and you will be OK. When buying bottled water always check the seal is intact and purchase a recognized brand of water.


Most  medical items can be purchased in chemists/supermarkets but you may not be able to understand the labels/directions so it's best to take your own , where possible.

If you have younger children , you may like to consider packing the following :
