    Flying Malaysian flag during my trip to Bali

    Miscellaneous: As I guess a momento to this trip is needed, plus we are going to Bali on the Malaysian Merdeka Day holiday, for me, I feel rather proud travelling in a car flying Malaysian flag during 2011 National Day. My Bali Driver was happy to put the flag on his car's dashboard, hope he will collect more flags from his guests of honored.

    If you are planning to stay in budget rooms

    Luggage and bags: get a packet of zip-lock bags at the nearest supermarket. They are essential if you like snacking, and you want to keep ants out of your room/bed/backpack :-)) I always carry heaps of them with me

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: take toilet paper, and soap, as these are NOT provided in budget accommodation. Instead of carrying soap + hair shampoo, I tend to use shower gel which is also ok to wash your hair with

    Photo Equipment: with digital cameras often having very specific batteries, don't forget the charger which came with your camera

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: take a torch (flash light), as power interruptions are not unusual. Also footpath, if they exist, are notorious for being uneven, and often having huge holes in them. So if you walk around after dark, and you don't want to end up breaking some bones, take one with you. (also stops you from stepping in dog poo after dark :-))

    Miscellaneous: take a towel - not provided in budget rooms. Also take a couple of sarongs, as quite often beds only have a bottom sheet, and you might like to cover up during the night. Mosquito coils, or spray, and/or personal insect repellent is something you should definitely not forget. Remember to have bottled water in your room, you can NOT drink the tap water. I use tap water to brush my teeth, but if you have a sensitive stomach, I would suggest that you use bottled water for that as well. before If you use any kind of batteries, please think of the environment and use rechargeable ones, and bring a charger.

    Mosquito repellent!

    by nancy80 Written Sep 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring an umbrella!!! This is an indispensable item in Bali. It will help shield u from the sun & from the rain. Sometimes, u will need it for both cases on the same day.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Don't forget to bring mosquito repellent for ur body as u will need it whenever ur outdoors, especially after dark. Also, I always travel with an electric mosquito repeller & tablets for using while asleep in the room.

    Feeling Hot Hot

    by cokes Updated Aug 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bali is hot so I would suggest you pack light and bring alot of shorts and t-shirts and don`t forget you beach wear.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring lots of sun block as Bali has so many beautiful beaches I don`t think you wanna miss out on it.

    Miscellaneous: If you living in Nusa Dua I would suggest bring some Mosquito repelent as there is lots of stagnant water as they have this park that was made for the people there with little lakes for them to enjoy.
