The Complete Packing List for Bali (+ FREE Travel Checklist)

packing list for bali

In nearly a decade of globe-trotting 47 countries I can safely say Bali is one of – if not the – best travel experiences I’ve ever been fortunate to have.

We’ve been twice over the years and we’ve done almost everything in Bali, including: exploring breathtaking waterfalls, trekking to the peak of a volcano, wandering enormous rice paddies, soaking in natural hot springs, swimming with manta rays, trying (and failing) at surfing, sunbathing on gorgeous beaches, and visiting the markets of Canggu.

So you may be wondering what to pack for Bali?

In this guide I have you covered on all the essentials you need to bring for any Bali itinerary, plus recommended travel items and my favourite gear that I trust, based on my travel experiences over the years.

Near the end of the post I’ve also included what NOT to pack for Bali, and a section about dress code in Bali, especially Balinese temples with their strict guidelines.

The Complete Packing List for Bali (+ FREE Travel Checklist)

Travel Documents

Firstly, here are all the important travel documents you can’t leave home without, plus important banking apps and cards. Bali is one of the few Asian countries that doesn’t charge hefty ATM withdrawal fees, so you don’t need to bring much cash. Plus, petty theft is common in Bali so its best to heed caution. 


1. Passport and Itineraries

Take a photo of the photo page (2nd page) of your passport and save it on your camera roll. Get a photocopy made and bring it with you. Store this and all your important travel documents in one secure place, such as this travel wallet for women | men which will hold your passport and all your documents.

2. Travel Debit Cards

Bring at least a couple of travel-friendly debit or credit cards so that you always have access to cash. Just remember that cash is king in Bali. I always bring 3 cards just to be safe, they are:
The above three come with super useful banking apps that are very user-friendly and easy to use, as well as packed with features, as well as being extremely secure.

3. Driver License

If you’re planning to rent a car in Bali, you can use your driver license (if you’re from the US, UK, EU, or have an international license). It can also be used as a valid ID, so you can leave your passport at your hotel/Airbnb.

4. Travel Insurance 

For added security and peace of mind, don’t leave home without good travel insurance by World Nomads. Take it from me – what’s the worst that could happen? Well, I once got electrocuted in a Mexican hostel – I flicked a light switch in a dark bathroom and felt a sharp burn travel from my finger all the way up my arm, as if it caught fire (you can read about that in this post).

Think I just had a freak accident? What happens if you’re out in Bali and your appendix suddenly bursts? I cannot stress enough how important travel insurance is.

Travel Gadgets & Electronics

Now onto more travel essentials that ensure you’re connected to power and have access to the internet during your trip, plus gadgets to keep you entertained on long journeys – you won’t want to leave home without these:


1. Pre-paid SIM Card

A question I get asked often is: is there internet in Bali? The answer is yes – there are plenty of internet cafes and wifi hubs on the coastal regions however it does get limited the further you go inland. For this reason, a 30-day 7GB SIM card package is ideal – it works well for me. You only really need it when you’re traveling during the day, far from town or the hotel.
Travel tip: be sure to keep your original SIM card in a secure place such as the Passport Travel Wallet (it has a SIM card pocket designed specifically for this purpose).

2. Multi Plug Outlet / Universal Travel Plug

What plug adapter do I need for Bali? Bali uses 230v plugs with round pins, the same as EU countries. I recommend bringing this versatile All-In-One Universal Travel Adapter Plug. It also comes with USB ports providing plenty of space to charge all your gadgets at once.

3. 10-Foot Charging Cable

In my experience many places I’ve stayed at had power outlets that were a little too far from the bed. So it’s always best to bring an extra long charging cable, like this one for iPhone, or this one for Android. 
Travel Tip: bring a second, shorter cable, like this one (iPhone) or this one (Android), that’s more convenient for charging from your power bank on the plane.

4. External Battery (Power Bank)

One of the most essential travel gadgets, an external battery (also called a power bank, portable battery charger or portable charger), can be a lifesaver when you cell phone battery is about to die on a long flight. Plus, there’s no guarantee you’ll find an outlet in a lot of places (or at least a reliable outlet). This 26,800mAh Conxwan PowerBank is reliable and affordable whilst packing a lot of power.
If you prefer a smaller model, the Keymox PowerBank is lighter and more compact whilst still packing plenty of juice.

5. Wireless Noise-canceling Earbuds

For comfort and convenience, you’ll want to grab yourself a pair of these Wireless Noise-Canceling Earbuds w/Bluetooth for traveling by air or on the road. Not only are they pretty decent with rave reviews on Amazon, they’re quite affordable too. Bonus!

6. Trtl Travel Neck Pillow

One of my favourite carry on essentials, these are not only perfect for flights, but for traveling around Bali too. If you’re traveling across the island with a Bali driver, it will be much more relaxing when wearing the Trtl neck pillow, as the roads tend to be quite bumpy and poorly maintained.

7. Windproof Travel Umbrella

A windproof travel umbrella has a double function: it not only keeps you dry during Bali’s afternoon showers (particularly inland and up north), but it will also keep you in protected from the suns rays. The RainMate Compact Umbrella is a very lightweight option that is easy to open as well as carry around.

8. Bendy Tripod Phone Holder



No doubt you’ll be planning to take some amazing photos at the most instagrammable spots around Bali, like I did. This bendable tripod phone holder is the easiest way to capture stunning and insta-worthy snaps. It’s small and compact, lightweight enough to carry around all day, and fits into your daypack neatly with minimal space.

9. Compact Digital Camera

For the avid photographer and those looking to take superb quality pics, a decent compact digital camera is an absolute must. My favorite over the years is the Ricoh GRIII ultracompact camera, which features 24MP, 28mm F2.8 Lens and a touch-screen LCD display. It has remarkable image-stabilization which makes it perfect for whipping out and snapping pics while on the go. You can even attach external lenses for zooming in, as well as an external flash gun.

10. VPN (Virtual Private Network) 

A Virtual Private Network (aka VPN) is quickly becoming an important travel essential these days. What are they? VPNs allow you to establish a secure connection over a shared connection. So when you’re using free WiFi (eg. in a coffee shop), you’re connected to all the other people in that cafe, on that same network.
The problem with being on the same open network as others is that you’re exposed to potential hackers who have easy access to your information – such as your login credentials, bank card info, and other private things on the device you connect from – whether that’s your phone, tablet or laptop.
Enter the NordVPN – it disguises your connection, so your precious information is invisible to anyone looking to hack an unsuspecting user’s device.

Bali Travel Safety Items

A question many people ask is: How safe is it to travel in Bali? The answer to that is, Bali is no more dangerous than most other places, in fact, your main concern when traveling in Bali is pickpockets and theft of valuable belongings. The following list has everything you need to ensure you don’t encounter those situations:


1. Travel Money Belt

This is super handy when you’re walking around tourist hotspots with cash and other small valuables – I recommend keeping these either stashed away in your hotel/airbnb, or stored securely on your body in a money belt.

The Complete Packing List for Bali (+ FREE Travel Checklist) 2

2. Anti-Theft Book Bag

These have similar features as the anti-theft purses, the main zipper on these is in the back, making them impossible to open when you wear it on your back. Whether you decide on the cross-body bag or the backpack, it makes your daypack in the city slash-proof. This is really an extra-precautionary option, but will deter pickpockets and is great for peace of mind.

3. Anti-Theft Travel Purse

If you’re after the ultimate theft-proof purse, I highly recommend the Anti-Theft Travel Purse – it consists of five measures of theft prevention including:

  • Slash-resistant straps: straps with stainless steel wire inside, protects against grab-and-go thieves
  • Slash resistant fabric: the whole bag is made with a slash-resistant mesh barrier inside for extra layers of protection
  • Lockdown straps: the strap lock secures bag to a stationary object, protecting against grab-and-go thieves
  • Locking compartments: locking zipper pulls that prevent pickpockets from getting into your bag
  • RFID blocking pockets: protects against electronic identity theft with RFID blocking card slots and pockets

4. Small Lock

Be sure to bring a small lock for any hostel stays in Bali, so you can securely store your valuables in the lockers provided.

6. Security Travel Scarf

This stylish Security Scarf features a hidden zipper and pocket for that extra layer of security. With this security scarf, you can store some cash, a credit card, your cell phone, and even your wireless earbuds inside the hidden compartment of the scarf and nobody would be any the wiser!

Eco-Friendly Travel Packing Essentials

These days most of us try to do our bit for the world around us, and with air travel, we become more conscious of our carbon footprint. So with the items below, you’ll be making a difference in protecting wildlife, nature and the environment.


1. Lifestraw Filter Waterbottle

Since the tap water in Bali is not safe to drink, your only option is to buy bottled water (which wastes a lot of plastic), or bring a reusable water bottle that has a filter so you can fill up from a tap or river and drink perfectly-clean, fresh water. I always bring my trusty Water-to-Go Filter Bottle with me for this reason. Use the code GIVEME15 at checkout to get 15% off your order.

2. Reef-Safe Sunscreen

If you’re planning to swim on the beaches of Kuta and Sanur, see manta rays off Nusa Penida or snorkeling on Gili islands,  consider wearing the eco-friendly Badger Anti-Bug Mineral Sunscreen (SPF 30) to help protect the environment.

3. Eco-friendly Bug Spray

There’s loads of bugs in Bali, so you’ll also definitely want to cover up this eco-friendly REPEL Insect Repellent, and not only ‘cause it’s environmentally friendly, but avoid getting a blown-up arm from a Mexican mosquito infection, which actually happened to me in Mexico. The bug spray is plant-based, DEET free, and smells of lemon and eucalyptus.

Travel Tip: Bali’s numerous convenience stores stock bug sprays and sunscreen, but they are ridiculously expensive because they know tourists will be forced to buy it if they don’t bring their own.

4. Anti-Mosquito Bracelet

Don’t fancy covering up in mosquito spray? Or looking to double up on protection? You can get yourself one of these mosquito-repelling bracelets which also does the job. (They are also DEET free and water-proof.)

5. Reusable Shopping Bag

Bali is finally reinstating its ban on single-use plastics, and aims to be plastic-free by the end of 2022. As such, you’ll want to make sure you have a couple of these reusable tote shopping bags that you can fold up into a tiny pouch, perfect for travel. Once folded, you can clip these little pouches onto the side of your purse or daypack, so it’s there ready to be filled with Balinese souvenirs, groceries and/or crafts.

Toiletries & Medicines

This list features essential toiletries to take to Bali. Something I get asked often is: do I need medicine for Bali? Well, there are lots of bugs and in particular mosquitos (especially during the Oct-Mar rainy season). You’ll also want to avoid the dreaded ‘Bali belly’.


1. Dry Shampoo

For those who don’t want to wash their hair on vacation, or looking to save luggage space, the Baptiste Dry Shampoo works a treat.

2. Dry Conditioner

Those with long hair will understand the inconvenience of getting sea salt in your hair. The Moroccan All-In-One Leave In Conditioner can be easily applied to your hair straight after a swim, plus it’s compact and convenient to carry around in your beach bag.

3. Hand Sanitizer & Pouch

This feels more like a mandatory essential item these days. To ensure you use it throughout the day, get a sanitizer pouch that clips onto the outside of your purse or day bag, so it’s within easy reach. Sanitizer Bottle Keychain Holder

4. Small Pack of Tissues

When traveling around Bali’s rural areas, villages, gas stations and highland regions, you may notice that toilet paper isn’t readily available in the bathrooms. It’s always a smart tip to carry a small pack of Travel Tissues with you on your person, and they’re handy for numerous things.

5. Facial Oil Blotting Rice Paper 

Bali has a tropical climate with hot weather all year round. These sustainable Face Blotting Sheets with Natural Rice Powder are a quick and convenient way to dry sweat and oil, whilst making you feel instantly refreshed and looking shine-free.

6. Hangover Cure Tablets

Planning to party hard? Bring some hangover cure pills with you and take one before you hit the bars. The Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier contains antioxidants, herbs and homeopathic ingredients that ensure you won’t be hungover the following day, and missing out on precious vacation time. And don’t take my word for it either – it’s a bestseller on Amazon with over 96,000 positive reviews.

7. General Medications

It’s relatively easy to get hold of medicine in Bali so don’t feel the need to pack the whole medicine cabinet. However its well worth bringing meds for headaches, cramps, allergies, as well as upset stomach meds like anti-diarrheal, Tums, and Pepto.

8. Massaging Shoe Gel Inserts

This is more of a travel hack – if your vacation will involve lots of walking and hiking like mine do, you may risk suffering aches and pains during your trip, especially if you do a lot of walking on day one of your trip. These super handy massaging gel inserts will keep your feet comfortable and protected from blisters, as well as from muscle pains and cramps in your legs.

Bali Beach Packing Accessories

Now for a list of items specifically for the beach, but also useful for water sports activities like snorkeling with manta rays, and other outdoor tours/excursions:


1. Beach Bag

A good beach bag is perfect for storing all your beach essentials for days spent sunbathing by the sea. It also neatly folds away into your backpack.

2. Waterproof Phone Case

Who knew a cheap waterproof phone case could be such a great investment? My favourite is this one – not only does it protect your prized possession in the water, it’s easy to use and doesn’t steam up/blur the camera lens, and it can fit almost every popular phone model.

3. Microfiber Towel

Perfect for the beach or poolside, the Rainleaf Microfiber Towel is an absolute must for any Bali packing list. While they do feel a bit weird, they are lightweight and dry super fast, so you’ll never have to worry about stuffing a soggy towel in your bag.

4. Long-sleeve Rash Guard

When you’re in the water – whether surfing in the sea or snorkeling with manta rays, a rash guard will help protect your skin from sunburn, cuts and grazes. O’Neill does superb rash guard for both men and women.

5. Underwater Camera

The good news about underwater cameras is that they are not as expensive as they used to be, which is brilliant for budget travelers. In fact, you can buy a pretty good one like this one by Akaso – not only does it have rave reviews, it’s actually quite cheap! I seriously recommend bringing one of these if you plan to go snorkeling, Mexico’s shores are absolutely insane with everything from turtles, whale sharks, and one of the world’s largest coral reefs.

6. Beach Coverup

For the ladies (or indeed anyone feeling particularly stylish) – a Beach Coverup is a great item to add into your packing list for that extra protection from sunburn when not in the water.

7. Other Beach Accessories

Finally, don’t forget to bring beach flip flops, a decent sun hat, a headband, and a snorkel. Plus, it’s wise to bring inexpensive polarized sunglasses – seriously, the amount of times I’ve lost my sunglasses over the years, and bringing designer sunglasses sets yourself up as a target for thieves. And lastly, if you’re going on any excursions, you’re gonna need a pair of water shoes for Bali, and a dry bag.

Clothing / Attire for Bali

For the image conscious and those looking to save packing space, it’s well worth having a capsule wardrobe for your Bali vacation so you can interchange and mix up items of clothing, in order to don a different look each day.


1. Flip Flops

An absolute must for beach vacations or even in the case of a murky hostel shower. These trendy looking pair for women and men by Havaianas are super popular.
The Complete Packing List for Bali (+ FREE Travel Checklist) 7

2. Swimsuits

Chances are you’ll need a swimsuit if you’re heading to the beach, staying at an all-inclusive resort, or surfing on the beaches. Bring at least a couple so that you always have a dry one ready. This women’s suit and these men’s trunks are tried and tested bestsellers.

3. Sarong Cover up

Now for one of the most important clothing essentials you’ll need in Bali: the sarong – both men and women will require one when entering sacred sites such as temples and holy baths, and it’s really versatile so you can wear it as a coverup for the beach or walking around the markets and villages. The Back From Bali Sarong for women and men is perfect for Bali, with 20 different designs to choose from.

4. Light Jacket

While Bali is known for its tropical and humid climate, you should definitely pack a jacket if you’re heading inland or up the mountains. In the central mountainous regions it gets a little chilly in the evenings. My favourite jacket is the trusted Columbia light jacket (mens / womens) which is comfy, light and always keeps me warm.

5. Rain Jacket

Bali is known for its sudden bursts of afternoon showers, and when it rains, this versatile North Face jacket (mens / womens) will not only keep you dry, but will also keep you insulated from the cold. If you’re doing volcano treks, you can wear this jacket over a fleece/warmer jacket.

6. Sandals

Sandals are an essential item for Bali so you’ll want to make sure you have a decent pair that last many years. For women, these Tevas are comfortable and fashionable and have great reviews. For men, these sandals are affordable and have a strong and sturdy sole.

7. Hiking Boots

A strong and reliable pair of hiking boots will serve you well for all your trekking and walking activities on Bali’s volcanoes and everywhere else, for years to come. These Columbia men’s and women’s hiking boots are some of the best around, though if you’re on a budget and don’t want to compromise on quality, you can get a pair of Quechua hiking shoes for men / women.

Luggage/Baggage and Packing Items for Bali

Finally, here’s a list of the packing items and baggage that I use to encase and carry all my stuff when I go on vacation. A question I get asked often is: Suitcase or backpack for Bali? Personally I prefer a backpack as it suits my Bali itinerary – involving a lot of moving around between regions and staying at many different places.

Also, it’s well worth investing in a trusted brand to ensure you have reliable gear that will last you years of travel.


1. Backpack

In 9 years of travel I find the clamshell type of backpacks the most convenient for quick access to everything inside your bag, without having to waste time rummaging through it. The Tortuga Setup Backpack (mens / womens) is one of the best out there. Not only is it affordable, its also very durable, weather-resistant, and comes in either 35L or 45L sizes.

2. Hardside Suitcase (if not the backpack)

Prefer to wheel around a suitcase instead of wearing a backpack? Worry not – Amazon Basics does a 30-inch Hardside Spinner that fits neatly into the overhead and it’s got 36,000 reviews to boot. A suitcase is perfect if you plan to spend most of your trip in 1-2 places or on a resort.

3. Daypack

The daypack is super useful day-to-day on your vacation as you don’t really want to be wearing your larger backpack other than for flight days and traveling between cities and regions. You can’t go wrong with the Osprey Daylite Daypack, that comes in a range of colours, it’s a hugely popular option loved by backpackers and travel bloggers alike.

4. Travel Laundry Bag

This is a must-have item for keeping your packing organized and reducing risk of lost clothing on your travels. It’s always wise to keep your dirty laundry separate from your clean laundry, plus, you’ll need a laundry bag to hand over to the laundrette when you get your laundry done during your trip.

5. Space Saver Packing Cubes

Another must-have packing essential, these packing cubes are a smart way of keeping your clothes well organized in your backpack whilst also saving tons of space, and giving you peace of mind. The Space Save Packing Cubes come in three different sizes, so you can put your pants in one, and shirts in another etc. The double zipper design ensures the pack shrinks down as small as possible when filled, leaving you with plenty more bag space for all your Bali souvenirs and new clothing.

Travel Tip: if you really want to save space in your backpack, use these compression bags. They suck air out like a shrink-wrap, and you’ll be amazed by how much space is left!

6. Hanging Toiletry Bag

Another one of my fave travel hacks is this hanging toiletry bag. It’s really useful for storing your toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, shampoo and conditioner, face wash, trimmer, bug spray and sunscreen, and it saves space in your backpack.

7. Travel Medicine Kit

Sometimes it’s better to be safe than sorry on your travels by planning ahead and bringing along basic medicines like paracetamol or ibuprofen, motion sickness pills and sleep aids. However, if you don’t want to buy those, the travel medicine kit packs them together neatly.

What NOT to pack for Bali

What can’t you bring to Bali? Below are the 4 main things you absolute need to leave at the door before you depart for Bali:


1. Don’t bring expensive jewelry and designer label clothing

Wearing flashy jewelry and branded clothing will make you stand out like a sore thumb for thieves, and even if you don’t get robbed, you’ll get quoted unreasonably high prices on everything from scooter rental, accommodation, day tours and so on.


2. Don’t pack too many clothes

Bali’s climate is very warm and pleasant with predictable weather, so you really don’t need to bring a lot of clothes. Besides, there are lots of cheap clothing readily avail able in Bali’s markets if you really need something.


3. Don’t bring wads of cash

Bali is one of the few Asian countries that doesn’t charge hefty ATM withdrawal fees, so you don’t need to bring much cash. Plus, petty theft is common in Bali so it’s best to heed caution. Use a travel credit/debit card like Wise, Revolut, or Starling (my favourite).


4. Don’t bring illegal narcotics (drugs)

Lastly and this one is absolutely important – don’t ever bring illegal drugs (cocaine, marijuana, heroin, ecstasy etc.) Indonesia has very strict drugs laws and the country routinely heavily prosecutes (and even executes!) foreign visitors for bringing drugs into the country. Even just small quantities for personal use will result in your spending years in an Indonesian jail.

Bali dress code: What to wear/not to wear

What should you not wear in Bali?

Remember to bring clothing that falls to below the knees – whether it be lounge pants, capris, midi or maxi skirts. That said, you are fine to wear shorts (above the knee), bikinis etc on the beaches and at resorts.

What shoes should I take to Bali?

Just like with most of Southeast Asia, the default footwear in Bali is simply a pair of sandals or reliable flip flops. Most (if not all) temples and some bars, restaurants and shops will require you to take your shoes off before you enter. Flip flops are easier to quickly slide on and off than sandals with straps.

Should I take jeans to Bali?

Denim is ok in Bali, but pants are better suited for Bali’s humid and hot climate. In fact, pants are a versatile, must-have clothing item. You can wear loose cotton pants to the beach, on a trek, or even at a temple.

What to wear in Bali temples?

You will likely visit a temple or two in Bali and since these are sacred places of worship and spiritual wonder on the island, there are strict rules and customs you must adhere to when entering the grounds of a Balinese Temple. I will go through these below.

Everyone must wear a sarong that covers the legs down to the ankles, as well as a top that covers the shoulders and upper part of the arms. Flip flops are acceptable, though remember to dress and act modestly.

Here are the main guidelines for visitors to Balinese temples:

  1. Do not point at things, especially statues.
  2. Do not point the soles of your feet towards the altar.
  3. Do wear appropriate attire – you must wear a long sarong that coves your legs and shoulders.
  4. Do not be loud or disruptive.
  5. Do not stand higher than the priest.
  6. Do not have an exposed wound.
  7. Do not be visibly pregnant.

Commonly Asked Questions

Bali has a tropical climate with warm weather and high humidity. You’ll mostly need just a swimsuit (or two), sundress and flip flops/sandals, though if you’re traveling inland or trekking the volcanoes, you’ll need a light jacket, pants, and some hiking shoes. Generally speaking, you won’t need to overpack for a trip like Bali.

After food, contaminated water is the most common cause of Bali Belly. To reduce your risks of ingesting contaminated water, avoid:

  1. Eating foods washed in tap water.
  2. Ice in your drinks
  3. Wet plates, cutlery items, and glasses
  4. Brusing your teeth from the tap
  5. Getting shower water in your mouth and eyes

Narcotics (cocaine, marijuana, heroin, ecstasy etc.) are forbidden. Indonesia has very strict drugs laws and the country routinely heavily prosecutes (and even executes!) foreign visitors for bringing drugs into the country. Even just small quantities for personal use will result in your spending years in an Indonesian jail.
