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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!

Congratulations, Graduants! After years of grueling work and many sleepless nights studying, you're finally graduated! Taking photos to immortalize one of your biggest achievements in life is a necessity, but sometimes you might feel that taking the same old poses at the same old locations might be boring. Worry not, for we have compiled five ideas for your graduation shoots this year!
You spent days, nights, months and years in this space studying and working, but (most-importantly) you made new friends in the campus that would last forever. What better way to make the memories last forever than to capture your graduation shots right there at the place where very corner holds a special memory of your journey together.
As much as you spent your days in the campus, there must be nights and days where you walk and explore the city where you study, especially if you're studying overseas or in a different city. Walk down memory lane through your favourite shopping streets or the city's famous restaurant alley and capture your graduation photos in those spots.
Especially for you who go to school in world-famous or historic cities, you might want to take your graduation shots at the city's famous landmark. A picture speaks a thousand words and nothing tells a better university-life story than a picture (or lots of it) in London's Tower Bridge and Big Ben, NYC's Brooklyn Bridge and Liberty Island, or Tokyo Tower. Trust us, the picture will turn into a treasure to show your children in the future!
Friends are always needed to help you go through the rougher times of your college life, and capturing your graduation together with great photos is always a great way to make your friendship more memorable. However, as much as you enjoyed your time with your squad, there are always times when you had to fight your way through classes and lectures on your own. Celebrating your success in going through that and coming out on top with a solo photoshoot is not a bad idea!
By the time we graduated, we must have realized that our journey through college would never be possible without the support and love of our loved ones, be it our parents back home, or our significant others that supported us day to day, near or far. Celebrate your graduation by taking great photos with these most important people in your lives!
Wherever and whomever you want to take your graduation photos with, let SweetEscape capture the moment for you! We capture any occasion, any time, anywhere by connecting you to a growing network of photographers in 500+ cities around the world, and your photos will be ready for download in 48 hours after the session via the SweetEscape app and our website. Book your session today and let's #MakeLifeMemorable!
