Located just south of the equator line, Bali enjoys tropical hot weather all year round.
Also in the humid monsoon season (October-April), you can expect sun and scorching temperatures for most of the day, interrupted only by brief downpours.
The laid-back, informal, and non-judgemental atmosphere of the island makes it possible to go with just any style.
Hereafter we thought of leaving you a check-list of things you may want to pack for your next trip to Bali, divided into clothing and accessories.
As a rule of Thumb: aim to travel as light as possible!
- Cap or Hat
- Light T-shirts or Shirts
- Sleeveless Shirts
- Light dresses
- 1 Pair of Long Trousers (just in case)
- 1 Hoodie (just in case)
- 1 Pair of Trainers (for excursions or treks, the rest of time you’ll likely use flip-flops)
Better to Avoid
- Heavy Jackets
- Formal Attire
- Expensive Jewelry
- Passport & International Driving Licence
- Suncream Protection
- Rainponcho (can also buy in place)
- Universal Electricity Adaptor
- Small bag for daily excursions (not too big to fit in a scooter)
- Re-usable Water Bottle
- Face Mask (if roads’ pollution disturbs you)
- Beach Towel
- Photocamera / Phone / GoPro
- Medicines (can be buy also in place, pharmacies have everything you need)
- Mosquito Repellent
All in all, packing for Bali is quite easy as you likely won’t need any special or unusual gear.
The hardest part is not to bring too much! I have already been there twice and cannot stress it enough: extra t-shirts, summer dresses, swimsuits, snorkeling gear and much more you’ll find it all on the island, cheap enough to avoid bringing your own from home, don’t overpack!
