Today’s post is a mix of what to pack and wear for Bali trip plus a Look Book of what I wore.
I do not know about you but I find planning and packing for a trip excites me.
Note: First thing to consider especially if you’re going to a country with a different religion than yours is, to check if there are clothing restrictions. As for Bali, it’s Hinduism.
Based from what you can find online travel sites and blogs, you can pretty wear anything (I prefer to still choose clothes decent enough). I am just putting it here as well and this might be one thing you need to do and check whenever you’re preparing for packing list.
This was a summer trip so I am really thrilled with what to bring with me.
A high-quality backpack/bag –It’s good to bring a backpack to put all your essentials. Big enough to put everything yet something that’s of high quality. For a 6-day trip, You can get away with a backpack and a 15kg luggage. If you’re a light packer you can opt for a hand luggage only.
Quality Footwear – I think sandals are the best ones you may take on this trip especially when you’re going here during the summer. I wore sneakers for my airport outfits.
Travel adapter – To be honest, this is the one we did not prioritize. The hotels where we’re booked doesn’t have international plugs (unlike Singapore and Taiwan). So to save yourself from the hassle, better have/bring your own before flying. We managed to buy one from a convenience store and we also used the adapter that came with our pocket wifi.
WHAT TO WEAR
In terms of wardrobe, I already have pegs in mind. I decided that I wanted a no-BS wardrobe; light weight, easy to wear, and pack.
Note: If you’re going during the summer (we went at the end of May to first few days of June), then I think these would definitely help you when you pack for yours.
Jumpsuit or Maxi Dress – Aside from these looking great in photos when in Bali, they are also very versatile from temple visits to strolling around Ubud Market or even when you ride that swing for your IG feed. Weather during May to June is humid so it’s best to bring clothes made of breathable fabrics and something you wouldn’t have a hard time moving into the whole day. Short Dress – Another favorite piece I bought was a dress. Something that’s printed and with an elaborate design is definitely perfect.
Long skirts – Same pointers as that of Jumpsuit and maxi dress.
Denim or cotton shorts – Always make room for these (at least 1-2) in your suitcase for alternative options.
Swimsuit – You’re going to Bali, so you definitely need to pack this. I suggest 1 piece and a bikini.
Colorful accessories – Everyday, I switch from different earrings to spice up the whole outfit. I also bought me 2 sunglasses.
Here are the outfits I wore during our 6-day trip to Bali:
