Travel Tips
  • Always bring an overnight bag on board inter - island flights for at least one day need. Since sometimes the check in luggage may arrive one day later.
  • Don't connect the inter - island flights with international flight in the same day. A one night transit in Bali is advised.
  • Bank Notes: Bali has better exchange rates than on the islands visited. Anyway there are networks of Banls and ATM (automated teller machine)in every capitol towns on the islands.
  • Hat, sun glasses, mosquite repelent, good walking shoes and sun protection lotion are worth to bring along
