Can’t wait for your dream vacation to start but hate packing? Most of us can relate to that, which is why it’s convenient to have a checklist that you can easily go through every time you travel to a specific type of destination. The biggest problem isn’t necessarily forgetting to pack the essentials, it’s stacking the luggage with tons of unnecessary items. We have made a list of 6 things that you must take with you on a trip to Bali in order to have the best tropical vacation, so make sure to find space for them on the list you make, too.
A range of SPFs
Never go travelling without sunscreen, even if it’s not that hot. Harmful sunrays go through windows, and they can even damage your skin while you’re in a bus. Once you start exposing a lot of your skin directly to the sun, you need to be careful not to get sunburned because this can cause premature skin aging, melanoma and possibly even painful wounds. It’s best to be equipped with a range of SPF from 50 (if you’re really prone to burns) to 20, and gradually go lower as your melanin gets accumulated in order to avoid burning your skin.
A gorgeous white hat
Besides sunburn, more possible problems that can cause a lot of trouble during vacation are heat strokes and sunstrokes. If you expose your head directly to the sun for a longer period of time, especially if your hair is dark, you’re at risk of battling with these. The best way to prevent such issues is to avoid spending too much time in the sun without proper head protection. A white hat is best for reflecting sunrays, plus it’s a fabulous décor element that adds a sassy touch to your beach style.
The ultimate bikini
There’s no tropical vacation without showing off some skin, so make sure you get the right swimsuit to do so. When choosing your next bathing piece, you need to find the one you feel comfortable in. If you’re not fond of showing too much of your body, then you should opt for one-piece bathing suits. The incredibly stylish high waisted bikini bottoms are an absolute trend this year, and they are perfect for hiding those stubborn love handles. If you’ve got A-cups, don’t go straight for the push-up bra section, but think about some spongeless models that’ll emphasize the elegance of your breasts.
Sneakers are a vacation essential if you plan on moving anywhere but the beach. Walking around the neighborhood, sightseeing and hiking are great activities in case of cloudy days, while you also need sneakers if there’s a sudden downpour. Make sure to take the ones that go well with both sporty and classy combinations so that you can wear them on several occasions.
A stylish fanny pack
The 90s are back with a boom and they’re bringing the most convenient travel essential with them – the famous fanny pack. There has never been a bag more suitable for travel purposes than this one. You wear it close to your body and plus you can always keep an eye on your belongings. Basically, you’re impossible to get mugged. The new models are so classy that you can wear them with high heels and dresses, while you can still find models that suit a sportier taste.
A first aid kit
You always have to pack some things “just in case”, and the first aid kit is one of them. Hopefully, you won’t have to use it, but you should have it nearby in case of an unexpected emergency. Casual cuts on rocks and stepping on sea urchins is not that unlikely to happen, so you should definitely pack tweezers, bandages and patches, as well as a sanitary liquid that contains alcohol or asepsol.
Don’t forget to pack your travel documents and check their expiration dates. Making sure you’re safe and comfortable will guarantee you the ultimate rest you so rightfully deserve.
