Since July 31, domestic tourists have been welcome to revisit the island getaway destination for some sand, culture, and food.
The coronavirus pandemic has reshaped many of our lives thus Harival’s vacation tips hope to remind you of some fun things to do in Bali when you finally decide to visit.
“Right now there are many hotel promotions that allow you to design your trip by choosing where you go and where you stay.”
Kompas.com has curated the travel influencer’s vacation tips on how to best unwind in Bali.
Harival expects the number of tourists arriving in Bali to surge during the end of 2020 thus he recommends travelers book their hotels and flights in advance.
The travel influencer further suggests looking into entrance ticket promotions on some of the tourist attractions on the island to get the best deal.
When it comes to flight tickets, Indonesian airlines have already offered incredibly affordable prices, he added.
“You have to prepare it now. Pay it now. That way you’ll be more relaxed by the year-end while remaining attentive to applied health protocols. Once you are certain that you want to go on a vacation, then there’s nothing wrong about going through with it.”
With so many things to do in Bali and places to see on the island, Harival recommends that travelers start their day off with a morning exercise.
“I always exercise in the morning. I wake up at 5am, eat breakfast then exercise. I do it every day to maintain my stamina. You need strong stamina before exploring around.”
Visiting Nung Nung Waterfall is one example that will take up a lot of energy due to the many staircases adventurers must pass.
Bring your own medication
One of the more essential vacation tips offered by Harival is to ensure you remain healthy and fit throughout your trip thus the travel influencer reminds would-be tourists to bring their own vitamins and personal medicine.
Moreover, Harival advises that the medicine be placed in a special pocket or bag that is easy to reach.
Carry a trash bag
If you are wearing a one-time use mask as you explore those various interesting things to do in Bali, then it is advisable to carry your own trash bag.
“Do not throw away your face masks and start littering. Bring a trash bag for non-reusable face masks. If you litter, you will make the environment unsanitary.”
Adhere to health protocols
One of the vacation tips Harival stressed is the importance of adhering to Covid-19 health protocols from pre-departure to post-arrival and during the remainder of your trip to Indonesia’s island destination.
Tourism industry players on the island have prepared handwashing stations and impose social distancing measures.
Nonetheless, you should also carry with you a hand sanitizer, wear a face mask, and maintain a distance from other visitors.
Take a Covid test
Indonesia’s main airport Soekarno-Hatta International Airport offers rapid Covid-19 tests priced at $5.81 (Rp 85,000) at its Airport Health Center at the Skytrain Shelter in Terminal 2 and at Arrival Gate 5 in Terminal 3.
Although the airport provides 24-hour Covid-19 testing, Harival reminded island visitors that there are other testing areas.
“I take my Covid-19 test at a hospital or clinic. My concern is that there would be a long queue at the airport so I prefer to do it elsewhere. It is more expensive, but I feel comfortable and safe.”
