An Unlocked Cell Phone so that you can use an Indonesian sim card and have internet access without relying on local wifi.


Backup Charging Bank for your cell phone since you’ll be using it as a camera, GPS system, and general travel genie.


A Camera since Indonesia is super photogenic. I use a mix of my Nikon D810 and my  Samsung8 smartphone these days.


A Great Day Bag so you can carry what you need with you (like your camera, snacks, water, sunscreen, cash, etc). My current favorite is the Pacsafe Citysafe, which is especially great for Asian cities because it has many anti-theft features.

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance!

Before you leave for Indonesia make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road. I pay for World Nomads, and I happily recommend them. It’s especially important to get travel insurance if you’ll be hanging out in cities or resorts where tourists can be the victims of pickpockets. 


I have been a paying customer of World Nomads for travel insurance for three years, and I happily recommend them.  If you get sick, injured, or have your stuff stolen, you’ll be happy to have the ability to pay for your medical bills or replace what’s stolen or broken.
