TIPS & REMINDERS

๐Ÿ”บBest month to visit Bali?
July to August โ€“ Peak Season
May to June โ€“ A good month for visiting, the annual rains have stopped
April โ€“ Dry Season
November to March โ€“ Rainy Season
๐Ÿ”บBooked our flight via Airsia for Php7300 RT
๐Ÿ”บAs much as possible, book your trips and hotel ahead of time while you’re in the Philippines to save money.
๐Ÿ”บAs of March 2019; 1 IDR = 0.0047PHP
๐Ÿ”บHave your peso changed to USD then to IDR. Never exchange your money at the airport! Just ask your driver to drop you off at any money changers in major places where rates are good. Donโ€™t forget to bring extra cash, Bali is really cheap with so many great finds! They also have banks if you need to withdraw some cash.
๐Ÿ”บWe stayed at Ozz Hotel in Kuta Bali โ€” walking distance to Kuta Art Market where you can find cheaper souvenir shops, handicrafts and restaurants.
๐Ÿ”บInclude The Edge to your itinerary, really worth it. Make sure to have a reservation, they do not accept walk ins https://www.oneeightybali.com/.
๐Ÿ”บ Do not forget to rent a pocket wifi/sim to stay connected. We booked our 4G Sim card via Klook for Php371 with 6GB Data.
๐Ÿ”บBring universal adaptor as most of their hotels have round hole sockets ๐Ÿ”Œ
๐Ÿ”บFood in Bali? So good yet so cheap. Eat at their local restaurants for very affordable price.
๐Ÿ”บAlways bring water, most of the restaurants and fast food chains in Bali do not provide service water. Their tap water is non-drinkable.
๐Ÿ”บFor souvenirs like Rattan Bags, it’s cheaper in Kuta Art Market, always ask for discounts and bargain 5x. We got big Rattan Bags for like 350-500 pesos.
๐Ÿ”บAlways bring umbrella/hat, sunblock and insect repellent.
๐Ÿ”บDon’t be shy to make several poses for your photos. Everyone does it.
๐Ÿ”บBe a responsible traveller. Respect and appreciate their culture.
๐Ÿ”บAnd lastly, whether you are travelling alone or with friends, I highly recommend to hire a private car with driver. You can follow their itinerary or create your own.

Overall, I spent more or less Php 25,000 for the whole trip (inclusive of airfare, hotels, tours and food). It wouldโ€™ve been lesser if you are in a larger group.

Bali, Indonesia is so magical. A perfect paradise ideal for everyone. The sights you will witness, the memories you will earn, the photos you will save, the people you will meet and everything about this island are without a doubt priceless experiences that money canโ€™t really buy. I will definitely go back and bring my loved ones.
