Bali bound? The Island of The Gods is a fabulous tropical destination which deserves an equally fabulous travel wardrobe.
No matter how much time you spend on planing your itinerary, the best holidays start with a well-packed suitcase.
Located close to the equator Bali’s daytime temperature varies between 20 – 33°C all year around. Given the tropical climate your best bet is to stick to lightweight fabrics such as cotton, linen or silk.
Bali’s exotic atmosphere calls for floaty dresses, kaftans, scarfs and sandals. Relaxed resort-style outfits are the way to go for both daytime and evenings.
Make sure you pack enough swimsuits and bikinis, especially during the wet season when clothes tend to take longer to dry.
And most importantly, given Bali (Seminyak in particular) is a shopping Mecca, make sure you leave plenty of room in your suitcase for your new purchases!
On a side note: The predominant religion in Bali is Hinduism. Tourist areas such as beach towns usually have a relaxed dress code. However, it is recommended to respect the local culture when visiting non-touristy areas. Make sure shoulders are covered with a scarf and wear mid-length skirts or trousers.
