When you arrive in Bali as a student, it’s important to make sure you have a few essential items in your bag to make life easier for you and to be prepared for anything that can happen.

1 – Copy of your Passport and documents. 

First of all, make sure that you always have a copy of your passport and your visa with you. In the event of an emergency or the need for identification, these documents are of the utmost importance.

2 – Nutritious Snacks.

Having a few nutritious snacks readily available during working hours is a wise choice to address any small gaps in between. Opting for dried fruits, energy bars, or apples can be a smart and healthy source of quick energy.

3 – Cash for Emergencies.

Additionally, keep some cash on hand in case of emergency or if you find yourself at a place that doesn’t accept credit cards. Make sure you have small cuts for your ongoing expenses.

4 – Basic Medications. 

Don’t forget to carry a first aid kit with basic medications like pain relievers, anti-stomach medications, antihistamines, and bandages. In the event of minor medical emergencies, it might be helpful to you.

5 – Sunscreen & Sunglasses.

Given that Bali enjoys a hot and sunny climate, it is crucial to take good care of your skin. Make sure you have sunscreen on hand to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. The use of sunglass will provide additional protection.

6 – Water Bottle.

Maintaining hydration is crucial since dehydration can be a problem in a hot climate. Carry a refillable water bottle with you so you can stay hydrated throughout the day. You can easily fill your bottle up at the available drinking water stations. We provide a reusable water bottle upon your arrival. 

7 – Hand Sanitizer.

Have antibacterial hand sanitizer gel or antibacterial hand sanitizer wipes on hand to maintain good hygiene. This will help you to protect yourself from germs, especially while you are traveling or visiting public places.

8 – Rain Jacket.

Carrying a rain jacket in your bag or trunk is a wise precaution to take in Bali, given its unpredictable weather conditions. Having a rain jacket readily available can provide you with protection and help you stay dry during unexpected rain showers, ensuring you’re prepared for any inclement weather.

9 – Mosquito Spray.

Keep mosquito spray with you at all times. Bali is known for its mosquito population, and having a mosquito spray readily available in your bag can help protect you from mosquito bites and the potential risk of mosquito-borne illnesses.

10 – Hat or Cap.

Finally, remember to bring a large-brimmed hat or a cap to protect you from the sun and help you stay cool while traveling.

With these essential items in your backpack, while interning abroad in Bali, you’ll be prepared to handle any events that arise. Simply remember to modify this list according to your personal needs and the activities you have planned while visiting Bali.
