Steps one should follow while booking a Bali Holiday package
Check Visa rules as per your nationality !
A tourist visa for most countries is on arrival for Indonesia for 30 days . You can check the link below where you can see if you come in on an arrival visa facility or not . If not, one needs to check with the embassy and apply for a visa.
COVID made 2020 the worst year for tourism and Hospitality industry .Another bad thing it does to world was it badly disconnected world with each other .
Though with the invention of Vaccine we have noticed leniency in the restrictions but govt rules and restrictions should be checked before planning any travel to any part of world at least in 2021.
Covid restrictions to enter to Indonesia
Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of travel. If not, you will be restricted and will not be allowed to board a flight . Better be cautious 🙂
There should be a page left on your passport where the checker can put a stamp on it. We have seen cases where people were denied boarding just because of this small issue.
Your travel dates should not match with Nyepi Day ?
On Nyepi Day, the day when Balinese people fast and keep silent for 24 hours. Almost all services in Bali are closed on this day and no one will even talk to anyone. In some parts of Bali, it is even not allowed to put the lights on in the room.
LestacWorld recommends not travelling on Nyepi day.
Look for the flight and book the most convenient one ASAP
Though we always recommend to get the flights booked via professionals to be away from any hassle later but , if one is looking to search flight online then these factors may help –
1) Check flights from your preferred departure city first and even if you get a good option , check from other departure airports near your preferred ones . Sometimes there can be a difference of 200 USD per person depending on the airport:) Who doesn’t want to save this much money?
2) Check if you are getting low-cost carriers or quality airlines . Some of the examples of LCC airlines are Scoot and Air Asia flying to the airport of Bali . These airlines might not be able to provide the same level of comfort as one may get on Singapore Airlines, but they will definitely save a lot of money .
The decision totally depends on the individual.
3) Check if the airline you are going to book is providing free check-in baggage or not. Usually low-cost carriers provide cabin baggage only on this route.
4)Always check if the fare you are getting on the first step is the same on the last step or not . Most of the travel websites, in the name of the taxes, ask you to pay at least 20–25 USD more on the last page of booking.
Name details on flight and passport should always be same ?
It is of Utmost importance that the name and other details should exactly match on what is written on your passport .
If there is even a small mismatch in the name , you can be denied boarding .
Check for activities you want to do in Bali
As we have already mentioned 120 things to do in bali in 2021 above , you can decide your preferences and plan your itinerary accordingly.
Though it is always recommended to get the help of travel executives as they know each and every aspect of the tours .
Also read – Checklist to travel to Bali
Last but not least , reconfirm flight timings , Hotel reservations and tour activities at-least 2 days before travel.
We have seen cases where people with unconfirmed reservations messed their trips 🙂
Frequently asked questions on things to do in Bali
Mirrors Club , Potato Street, and Jiggi Boat in Gili Trawangan are a few of the best party places in Bali .
One should wear long clothes before entering any temple in Bali . Sarong is the traditional cloth which Balinese people wear before entering any temple .
Masks are not only compulsory in Bali but around the world as well. One should never take the risk of not wearing a mask, even if it is mandatory or not.
There are restroom facilities almost on every beach in Bali . Most of them are paid but not really up to the standards .Though you won’t always get the cleanest option, with a few compromises, it is manageable .
One should always keep this in mind before getting wet on the beach.
Yes, there are a few online apps providing cab on demand services like Blue Bird or Uber , but these facilities are not always reliable and might prove to be expensive .
If one wants to roam in the radius of the city, then it can be a good option 🙂
Almost 30% of Bali’s tourists are Indians, and they usually prefer vegetarian meals . This has made Bali develop its taste for Indian vegetarian food also . Though there are many vegetarian restaurants in and around Bali, it still depends on the area one is travelling to .
In a few areas, it is very easily available, and in other areas, it is difficult to find.
Well, with the increase in the number of tourists arriving in Bali, the authorities have realised the scarcity of water for the locals.
Water is getting more expensive day by day in Bali . LestacWorld’s recommendation is to buy a big bottle of water once from the local market and keep it in the hotel room . Buying small bottles will make it more expensive and hotels might charge you more than the actual price .
