BALI TRAVEL FAQ
Do I need a visa to visit Bali?
US Citizens do not need a visa to enter the country (for tourist travel under 30 days).
What airport do I fly into?
Denpasar Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) is the international airpot you will be flying into. Remember you can lose up to two days with the time change and flight time, so double check your arrival date and retreat start date.

Daily Bliss Yoga will arrange shuttles from the airport to Soulshine.
What is the electrical currency/outlet in Bali?
Bali electricity runs at 230V. Adapters will be necessary if you are bringing any electrical items. We use the European plug (two round pins). We have adaptors for you to borrow and all our rooms have at least one American adaptor to plug directly into. You can also easily purchase adaptors once you arrive.
Do I need any vaccines?
Traveling outside of you home country can expose you to bugs your body might not be used to. The odd case of “bali belly” (diarrhea) is not uncommon. Packing an anti diarrhea pill can put you at ease. It’s always nice to check in with your family doctor or local travel clinic if you need any information on vaccines or medications to bring with you. We’ve got some great pharmacies (“Apotek” in Indonesian) and an awesome health clinic nearby Soulshine Bali in case you need anything.
Is there Internet access on property?
We offer free Wi-Fi through out the property. While we know its important to stay connected with friends and love ones, sometimes the unexpected storm can slow down or cut out the Internet temporarily.
What will the weather be like?
Because we are located near the equator, Bali tends to have fairly stable weather with the ‘wet’ season occurring between November and March and the ‘dry’ season between May and September. The sun still shines bright during the wet season. It is generally always hot with temperatures hovering in the mid to high 80s and up.
What should I pack?
We recommend light clothing that breathes but can also protect you from the sun. Being near the equator, our sun is hot and can burn much faster than what you might be used to. Sleeves or a light jacket is also helpful in the evenings if you decide to take a scooter ride. We’ve got great natural bug spray and SPF 25 sunscreen, but don’t forget to pack your own if you have your favorites.
What is the currency?
The currency here is called Rupiah. You can bring your own currency over and convert it, or use atm machines to withdraw Indonesian currency. ATM withdrawal fees vary bank to bank, so make sure you check in with yours to get all the info. Many restaurants and stores take credit cards. Don’t forget to let your bank or credit card company know you are traveling!
