  1. Thanks for this! I’ll be going to Bali next month. My first trip overseas as an adult (thus w/ my own money) so I had no clue how much to bring. Very helpful, though is the overall amount already inclusive of tue air dare and tax?

    • Hi angrypink! Yes airfare, tax and terminal fee in ph and id is included… But note terminal fee increase from 1250 to 1620. You’re welcome, thanks for reading my blogs about Bali! God bless you! 🙂

  2. Thanks again! One more thing. Would it be safe to just budget 20k since our airfare is already paid for? Or w/ 20k, i might end up scrimping on things?
