Tips for Visiting Lombok and Wonderful Indonesia

Always bring some sun protection, an umbrella or raincoat with you as the weather is unpredictable. Please be aware of the changes in weather especially in some areas. Bug repellent is also mandatory to avoid uncomfortable bug bites.

ATMs can be found easily, especially in tourist areas and big cities. When you are exploring the remote areas of Indonesia, it is better by having some cash in Indonesian Rupiah. Remember to only change yours in the legal money changer to avoid scammers.

Most public places are offering WiFi in Indonesia. But if you want to explore the neighborhood, picking up a local SIM Card is necessary so that you can conveniently be connected to the internet. You can buy it once you arrived at the airport or get one at a SIM card shop near your hotel.

Please be mindful of the dress code when visiting Indonesia. Modest clothing is a sign of respect when you are in public places, while a swimsuit is acceptable in swimming pools and beaches.
