"Packing List" Indonesia Packing List Tip by siung2

Indonesia What to Pack: 47 reviews and 31 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: indonesia is a tropical country with hot weather, so it is not necessary to bring your jacket. but you can bring it if you are going to Mount Bromo or climbing a mount.

during rainy season (November to March) don't forget to bring your umbrella or raincoat.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: i think it is not imperative to bring medicines in indonesia, unless if you are traveling in forested areas in sumatra, kalimantan, or irian. if so, bring a malaria medicine (usually primaquine - taken from 1 week before departure until 2 week after getting back home).

Miscellaneous: don't drink from uncooked water - it's not safe. and you'd better not to eat home-made chilli ('sambal') or tomato sauce, otherwise you can get stomach ache. but it is OK to have bottled sauce, such as 'saus tomat ABC' etc.
