      FAQ General

      Planning a trip to Bali is an exciting endeavor, but it's crucial to be well-prepared to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience. One common question that often arises is, "Do I need a visa to visit Bali?" Let's dive into some key details and essential information for your Bali adventure.

      1. Visa Requirements: Depending on your nationality, you may need to apply for a visa in advance or be eligible for a Visa on Arrival. Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months from the arrival date, and don't forget to check your visa status using the official link: Bali Tourism Board - Immigration. Remember, having a return ticket is a must for entry.
      • Staying Under 30 Days: No cost for entry.
      • Staying Over 30 Days: Purchase a Visa on Arrival for USD 35 and extend it before it expires on Day 30, which can be arranged locally.
      1. Arrival Information: Fly into Denpasar Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). Be mindful of potential time differences and flight durations to avoid any scheduling issues.
      2. Electrical Current and Adapters: Bali operates on a 220V electrical system with European-style plugs. Bring adapters for your electronic devices or borrow them from reception. American adapters are available in all rooms.
      3. Vaccinations: No mandatory vaccinations are required for Bali. However, it's advisable to check with your healthcare provider for recommended vaccinations based on your individual health needs.
      4. Currency: The official currency is the Indonesian Rupiah. You can convert your currency or withdraw Rupiah at ATMs. Be aware of varying ATM withdrawal fees and inform your bank about your travel plans to avoid any issues with credit card usage.
      5. Weather and Packing Tips: Bali experiences stable weather, with a wet season from November to March and a dry season from May to September. Temperatures generally range in the mid to high 80s and up. Pack light, breathable clothing for sun protection, and don't forget mosquito repellent for evenings.
      6. Mosquitoes: Bali is home to mosquitoes, especially those that are active during dusk and dawn. Bring mosquito repellent and apply it generously. Organic repellent is available at reception for your convenience.

      Packing List

      Clothing


      While vacationing on an island often encourages skimpy beach attire, the Indonesian locals dress pretty conservatively. You should dress appropriately and cover your knees and shoulders when visiting Hindu temples and sacred sites or when exploring small villages in the island interior. Beach attire is excellent for daily wear other than when dining or clubbing at pricey establishments. 


      Plan on bringing light cotton clothing; jeans will be hot and heavy for most circumstances. High-tech, quick-dry garments will work, too, but don't leave them hanging to dry somewhere they could be stolen.


      You won't need as much clothing as you would expect; keep your packing simple and purchase items locally if you run out of outfits to wear. If on an extended trip, you'll find plenty of places that do laundry for a fee based on weight.


      When packing, separate clothing and other "kits" into sealed modules or cubes in case temperature and pressure changes pop open bottles.


      Shoes


      As with most of Southeast Asia, typical footwear consists of just a pair of reliable flip-flops. Some shops, temples, bars, and restaurants may ask you to remove your shoes at the door. Flip-flops are more accessible to slide on and off than sandals with straps. I wouldn't recommend bringing expensive footwear. You can purchase cheap flip-flops in shops and stalls all over the island. You'll also need proper hiking shoes or sandals if you want to climb Mount Batur.


      First Aid Kit


      Don't let an annoying ailment affect your precious time on the island. Fortunately, walk-in pharmacies sell nearly everything that you'll need -- including prescription drugs -- without the need to visit a hospital first. Pack only a tiny, simple travel first aid kit. (Hopefully, you won't need anything more than ibuprofen after too many beach cocktails)


      Tip: Every first-aid kit should have anti-diarrhea medicine such as loperamide(Imodium), but don't take it unless getting to a toilet isn't an option (e.g., you'll be on transportation all day). Antimotility drugs may exasperate simple travelers' diarrhea by trapping bacteria inside instead of allowing it to pass.


      Money and Documents


      Make two copies of your passport. Diversify your travel documents by hiding them in both your money belt/day bag and big luggage to avoid disaster if one or the other gets lost. Bring multiple credit cards, and plan on leaving one in the hotel safe in case of an emergency. I recommend sending your travel itinerary and flight details to someone in your family. Send emergency contact phone numbers in an email to yourself in case you need to contact banks.


      Bali has plenty of Western-networked ATMs; however, they bring backup cash just in case the network goes down. Consider bringing $100 in case of an emergency. 


      Tip: Keep your passport locked in the hotel safe. Don't carry it around with you out of fear of losing it or theft. 


      Electronics


      Don't bring too many electronics. I recommend a mobile phone and, optionally, a camera. If you opt to bring fragile electronic devices and know how to protect them in a tropical environment, consider bringing a portable battery charger for your phone. A good rule of thumb is to leave non-essential valuables back in the USA.


      Indonesia uses the round, two-pronged CEE7 power outlets that are common in Europe. Voltage is 230 volts / 50 Hz. Unless you intend to carry a hair dryer (don't!), you won't need a step-down power transformer because most modern device chargers (e.g., mobile phones, laptops, etc.) handle the higher voltage automatically. Although many hotels have universal outlets that work with many cord types, you may need a small adapter to accommodate your device.


      Tip: Have a plan for your cell phone before you depart. Call your carrier to find out the details and coverage of using your phone while in Bali. Verizon offers it for only $10 a day if you sign up for their international plan in advance.


      Other Items 


      Along with the obvious stuff, consider bringing along the following:

      Hand sanitizer and toilet paper for encounters with public squat toilets. 

      Earplugs

      Mosquito repellent 

      Flashlight for unexpected power outages -- a common occurrence in Southeast Asia.

      Plastic bags or cases for waterproofing electronics and valuables.


      Souvenirs


      Purchasing what you need on a trip after arrival not only helps the local economy, but it's also fun! Make sure you leave room in your luggage for purchases and unique items that are not easy to find at home.


      You'll find plenty of shopping in Bali, particularly in Ubud, where lots of boutique shops carry unique clothing perfect for the island. Along with stalls and small shops, you'll find several large shopping malls in Kuta with name-brand items. Outside of malls, you will typically need to barter, particularly in tourist shops, to get acceptable prices.


      Rather than leave home with a packed suitcase, consider waiting until you arrive in Bali to purchase some of these everyday items:

      • Sarongs (some Hindu temples require that men wear one to enter)
      • Hats
      • Sunglasses
      • Beach bags
      • Swimsuits/beach cover-ups
      • Evening dresses
      • Flip-flops/sandals
      • Handmade Jewelry
      • Aloe vera / after-sun lotion
      • Coconut oil (a tremendous after-sun moisturizer that is popular on the island)
      • Snacks

      You'll probably want to bring toiletries, sunscreen, and consumables in case the brands you usually use are not available. Beware of the many local toiletries, particularly soaps and deodorants, that contain whitening agents. 


      Although violent crime is not an issue in Bali, the influx of tourists does attract some petty theft. Be mindful when choosing a day bag; backpacks or satchels with famous logos (e.g., IBM, LowePro, GoPro, etc.) announce to would-be thieves that the contents inside are valuable.


      Other Items to Bring

      • COMFORTABLE WALKING SHOES! Don't even think about bringing non-practical shoes. You won't wear them, and they will only take space in your bag.
      • Portable battery charger for your mobile phone
      • Empty garbage bag for laundry
      • Used grocery bags for wet shoes
      • Day bag for day trips
      • Poncho or umbrella
      • tissue pack
      • Hand sanitizer
      • Compression socks (for the long flight)
      • Sunscreen
      • Extra room in your luggage for bringing home souvenirs
      • Dramamine and other essential medications
      • Flip flops for the beach
      • Modest, temple-appropriate outfits

      A Few Tips

      Here are a few tips:

      Please bring a pen for the forms you will need to fill out when you arrive.

      Please bring $40 cash for your Visa on Arrival. You can only stay in Bali for 30 days.

      Please bring little packs of tissues to use in the bathroom while we are out and about.

      Please bring hand sanitizer, bug spray, sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.

      Please bring a little day pack/ bag.


      Do not bring valuables, and for sure do not bring anything that could be taken from a monkey when around monkeys such as Uluwatu Temple and Monkey Forest ( i.e., sunglasses on your head, jewelry, hold your phone tight when taking pictures, have a cross body bag, no food around monkeys)


      Watch where you are walking, the side walks are uneven.

      Traffic is BAD. If you get car sick, please plan accordingly. One of the changes I made was not having us in a vehicle for so long each day.


      Mosquitos are no joke, and we will be staying in Ubud, which is in the jungle.

      When using your credit card, they will ask you if you want IDR or USD- It doesn't matter unless your credit card charges foreign transaction fees, which I don't think many do anymore. Just say local currency. They will also ask for a PIN or Sign, sign if it's a credit card. 

      Please don't forget your vaccination card, passport, or copy of your passport in case you lose your passport.

      If you want to buy in markets or along the streets, you can haggle on the price of things. I can help you with this.

      Please download the XE app to convert their currency easily. 100,000 IDR is just under $7

      If you cancel your trip before the 90-day deadline, 25% of the total trip price is non-refundable, as are any airfare, train tickets, or ferry tickets purchased as part of your trip package due to the strict cancellation policy by foreign carriers (if applicable).

      To say I was forever changed by this trip would be an understatement. This was my second retreat with Walker Wellness and everything was perfect. I always believe the yoga, hiking and gourmet meals will be my favorite part. But I find the people I meet to be the most moving part of the entire experience. I have developed a deeper sense of myself, increased inner peace and lasting friendships. What more could you ask for?

      Phenomenal from start of finish, first-class accommodations in a private home, nestled in the mountains near Zion. Our retreat host/yoga instructor lead beautiful practice in the mornings and evenings, complete with mandala and essential oils. Yoga mats and props were provided. The beauty of having a van transport you to and from the park every day was a huge plus. The food was delicious and nutritious with plenty of options for the vegan or vegetarian. Breakfast was served and dining was serene outside on the deck overlooking the mountains and forest. Lunch fixings were laid out where you assembled, and then were able to put into your backpack and take on your hike. Returning from a day of hiking, we had restorative yoga in the evenings and then were treated to gourmet dinners with healthy and decadent options. The hot tub underneath the stars was a nice bonus after a day on the hiking trails. Sleeping rooms were spacious, showers were nice and clean with good pressure. Snacks were provided and we never were wanting for anything. Every need was taken care of for a particularly relaxing experience, unplugged. Hiking Scout's Lookout and Angel's Landing, one of our retreat members received the lottery and the Narrows opened up on our last day. The beauty of Southern Utah with the luxurious experience that Walker Wellness provides, we were very prepared with the Zoom call prior to the event. I will definitely be back, hopefully to Sedona or Yellowstone. Walker Wellness is the way to go!

      Kudos to Alle(Alley cat💕) a superb yoga leader and retreat guide extraordinaire! I am fresh back from Walker Wellness’s Zion/Bryce Canyon yoga retreat and I have to say it is one of the best trip experiences in my life to date. The yoga was tailored to our group of warm, friendly, and interesting women’s needs. I feel so blessed to have met such a nice group of women! The parks were stunning and the hikes were spectacular! There were plenty of opportunities for photo ops and shopping in the parks and in the quaint town just outside of Zion. Meals were prepared by Amber who was creative and inventive and a smiling face every morning over coffee /tea and breakfast. And just in case meals were not enough there were plenty of yummy snacks available. I will definitely be planning another trip with Walker Wellness! My thanks and praise to Alle and Amber!!
      By Jill D for Zion National Park Hiking & Yoga on May 11, 2024
      The Zion & Bryce Canyon Retreat was INCREDIBLE. Perfect blend of yoga, hiking, nature and community. The food was delicious and nutritious. The facilitator Alle was an absolute delight. I'd highly recommend this experience!
