Bali Trip Tips: Five Things You Must Pack Into Your Bag When Traveling to Bali
13 May 2019IDEASBY SweetEscape

Summer is here! And inside any list of the go-to places for summer holiday, you can always find Bali among the top spots. The Island of Gods–as it is known by travelers everywhere–is a perfect summer destination, not only because of its perpetually sunny and warm weather, but also because of its beautiful beaches, tranquil paddy fields, breathtaking natural beauty, deep cultural heritage, and awesome nightlife.

Before hopping on the next flight to the island paradise, take a look at our list of five must-bring items that you should never forget to pack in your travel bags to ensure that your summer in Bali is memorable!

1. Lightweight Rain Jacket

Sure, Bali is a tropical paradise with extremely nice weather and seemingly endless sunny skies, but sometimes, especially during the October all the way to late January, Bali also welcomes some tropical rains. These rains sometimes caught travelers by surprise, and those who are enjoying their time in the beaches of Nusa Dua and Seminyak or the rich cultural landscape of Ubud will be drenched. To prepare yourself against this kind of weather, pack in a lightweigh rain jacket into your travel bag. Rainjacket gives you more mobility compared to having to hold an umbrella, and also can be fashionable too!

2. Sunblock & Sunglasses

Bali is all about that 'vitamin-sea' and sunny weather, so you practically can't afford to not bring these two items in your bag! Sunblocks (or sun-tanning cream) will help maintain your skin's moistness and protect you from getting painfully sunburt after a day playing at the beach, and sunglasses are simply fashionable–while also protecting your eyes from the sun ray!

3. Water Bottle

Don't forget to stay hydrated in the heat of Bali! Although minimarkets and street vendors can be found all over Bali, sometimes it is better to bring your own water bottle which you can refill freely at the hotel before leaving! Put in some isotonic, fruit juices, or coconut water to better refuel you throughout your day!

4. Insect Repellant Spray

Being a tropical island means that Bali is also a home of abundant species of tropical animal, flowers and also insects. To make sure that you stay comfortable throughout your journey in Bali, don't forget to bring a small insect repellant spray in your bag to protect you from the bites!

5. Hand Sanitizer

The best way to experience a new culture is by enjoying its traditional cuisine, and Bali is filled with delicious local foods such as Nasi Campur Bali, Sate Lilit, and Ayam Betutu. Experiencing the traditional Balinese dishes sometimes require you to use your hands and not spoon and fork, so to make sure that your culinary experience is enjoyed to the fullest, put in a small bottle of hand sanitizer to use before you eat! You don't want your culinary journey interupted by some unimportant stomachache!

Lexi Gancayco's Healthy Summer
20 May 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Fitness enthusiast and instructor Lexi Gancayco shared her healthy tips to prepare yourselves to welcome summer!

1. How Do You Get Your Summer Body Ready?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Honestly I don't think there's such a thing as a 'Summer Body'. You'd want to keep your body healthy and fit consistenly all year round. But I think how you keep your body consistently healthy and fit is really by having a good balance of consistent work out and a balanced diet; not depriving yourselves of anything but not indulging too much on good food as well.

2. When You Go On A Holiday Sometimes Your Diet and Fitness Regime Got Messed Up. How Do You Maintain Your Fitness During Trips?

Of course when you are on holidays or vacations, you really should maximize the whole experience of wherever you are, so you should not deprive yourselves of any experience–including food–, but as I mentioned before, you should also not indulge yourselves too much. It's all about balance. For example, if you know that you're going to have a big meal that night, do a lot of activities like walking or working out in the hotel for 30-45 mins in the next morning. You should not even do it everyday, doing some workout every other day is enough. Basically, watch what you eat; it's all about balance.

3. Any Must-Have Healthy Food / Drink For Your Travels?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Water! Wherever you go, bring water with you. I had to learn this the hard way because I was on vacation last year and I fainted out of dehydration. I didn't realize that I didn't have enough water. So wherever you go, fill up a water bottle with you, and keep yourself hydrated.
