4 Ways to Take Care of Your Health on Holidays

A healthy person always enjoys their life more than a sick one, no matter whether they are on holiday or working. But when you go on holiday you feel like the universe owes you a good time and it is totally spoiled if you fall sick. Advice from Easy Bali Villas says that you have wasted both time and money if you can’t enjoy your holiday, so here are 4 ways to take care of your health while on holidays;

  • Mosquitoes are rife in Bali as the constant rain causes many puddles that easily breed mosquitoes. These are the kind that carry malaria, so make sure you get vaccinated before you leave for Bali. Sleep with a mosquito net over the bed if you leave the windows open. Take insect repellent with you and use it often, especially when out in the countryside or when walking along the street at night. Mosquitoes can be anywhere and everywhere.
  • Take out travel insurance because getting sick in Bali is no laughing matter. You may need to be flown home to a top hospital for treatment, depending on whether you are sick or injured and how badly. This can cost a great deal and cause much stress if you are ill-prepared. Hospitals in Bali are not the same as in Australia and you may need quality care to even survive. With insurance you can get it.

10 Ways to Stay Safe on Holidays

When people go for a holiday the last thing on their mind is running into danger. However, when you are far from home in a strange environment or in a culture like Bali that is not familiar it is easy to run into danger or trouble without even recognising it.  And even if you do, it is not always easy to know the best thing to do to minimise the danger and so the results may be worse than they need be. Here are 10 ways to stay safe in Bali.

  1. Let someone know when you are going and when you are due back. Let them know what your itinerary is and if you change it, work out some way to let them know. Contact them often while you are away so they know you are safe.
  1. Make copies of all your important papers such as your passport, visa, travel tickets and so on. Then if you lose them you will be able to prove they exist.

4 Ways to Enjoy Family Holidays

Family holidays are sometimes an exercise in patience for the parents, but especially the mother because she seems to be the one that the little children turn to for comfort or anything else that they want. Here are some tips to help make that family holiday in Bali more successful, so that everyone can enjoy themselves.

Accommodation

If you want to enjoy a family holiday in Bali, it is essential that each parent has some free time and to get this you either have to split up and go alone while the other one babysits, or hire a babysitter. According to Luxury Villas Bali if you have the kind of really nice accommodation that offers affordable babysitters, it will make things easier. But it is also essential to choose accommodation that is not restrictive like a hotel room is. You don’t want to have to creep around the room while the littlies have their afternoon nap or go to bed early. Villas are much easier on family life, allowing the little ones to rest peacefully in their own bedroom while the parents enjoy more freedom in the living rooms and just outside near the pool, where they can still hear the children if they are disturbed.

How to Take a Break from the Humidity in Tropics

According to holiday experts Easy Villas, since it has a tropical climate, hot, wet weather can be expected in Bali. Often, the humidity is at 80-90%, which makes it a bit sticky for some people. Luckily, there are ways to take a break from the humidity in Bali, so you can enjoy your holiday more. Here are some of them.

  • Book your holiday for the winter months. Bali doesn’t have a winter as such, but during our winter, their season is not as hot and so not as humid.
  • Rest under the fan in one of the beautiful villas during the hottest part of the day, or spend an hour or two where there is air-conditioning.
  • Visit the highlands. Even if you just go for a day tour during your holiday it will give you a break from that sticky heat. Staying overnight will enable you to enjoy a good night’s sleep as the temperature goes down considerably then.
  • Avoid Christmas holidays in Bali. Not only is it lots more expensive, it’s hotter and more humid. The ideal months are May June and September, with April and October still being okay weatherwise. In these months the weather is kinder and so are the prices. July is school holiday time and very expensive.

6 Great Beaches For Holidays

There is no doubt that the beaches are some of the best attractions of Bali, especially for Australians who are known to be beach lovers. If you are going on a holiday to Bali, it is only natural to want to check out the beaches, no matter if you are a teen keen to go surfing or parents of a younger generation that loves to play on the beach and paddle in calmer waters.

Then there are all the other fun, water-related activities that you can do in and around the water and the beaches. So if sparkling water and long stretches of white sand are on your holiday agenda, here is a list of 6 beaches tourists love, but there are many more.

    • Nusa Dua beach is surrounded by luxury hotels as well as palm trees and wonderful gardens. It is safe as a beach can be for toddlers, with calm water and no currents likely to drag them out. The water is crystal clear for those who love to snorkel and if you are into surfing you can catch bigger waves at either end of this beach.
    • We hear a lot about Kuta beach because it is a very popular destination, especially for surfers. It’s not so good for swimming as the waves are too big, but there are plenty of beach parties and clubs that offer entertainment at night. Find it a bit further along the city line than Nusa Dua.

12 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Holiday

Bali is a popular destination for Australian tourists because it offers an exotic location with lots of beaches not too far away from our own shores, which means you don’t waste precious holiday time travelling.  It also offers much in the way of different cultures and food, bargain shopping opportunities, different and exciting things to do and see and lots of fun for everyone.

But just like a holiday to any other part of planet Earth, a holiday to Bali should be well-planned and organised to get the most out of it. It would be a shame to miss out on something you really wanted to see or do because you forgot to include it, or ran out of time to get there. So here are 12 ways to get the most out of your Bali holiday.

  • Do your research early on and decide what you want to see the most. You won’t be able to fit it all in, so choose carefully. Write it down so you don’t forget.
  • If you are going with your partner, take it in turns to choose what to visit; that way you will each have a fair share of things you like.
  • Keep away from the local alcohol as it is much stronger than any other kind. If you intend to get drunk, designate one of your group to be the responsible one and look out for the others. Two would be better.
  • Learn a little about the laws of the land and make sure you obey them.
