Things to Expect

  • Bali’s climate is consistently warm and humid, and exceedingly so during the rainiest months of (November through March), but it can also be sweater weather come sunset on the beach when cool breezes and sometimes stronger winds pick up.
  • Between our daylong island adventures and walks through the rice fields, you can expect to be exposed to the elements at length, so be prepared with a hat, sunscreen, lip balm, and plenty of water. Comfortable shoes are also a must.
  • We may visit several sites and communities that live and dress more conservatively than in the tourist areas of Bali. For this reason, it’s important that you pack at least one or two outfits that cover your shoulders and knees.
  • Though the risk of infection is low, Indonesia is home to several mosquito-borne illnesses, including malaria, dengue fever, and Japanese encephalitis. You can protect yourself by using insect repellant and wearing long, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing. Also, speak to your doctor about anti-malarial medications and vaccinations before you travel.
  • Physical level

    This trip can be enjoyed by anyone who is reasonably fit.

    Problems and emergency contact

    While we always endeavor to provide the best possible holiday experience, due to the nature of travel and the areas we visit sometimes things can and do go wrong. Should any issue occur while you are on your trip, it is imperative that you discuss this with your group leader or our local representative straight away so that they can do their best to rectify the problem and save any potential negative impact on the rest of your trip.

    We recognize that there may be times when your group leader/local partner may not be able to resolve a situation to your satisfaction – if this is the case, please ask the leader to speak to their direct manager.

    You may also choose to provide details in your online feedback, which we ask you to complete within 30 days of the end of your trip. Please do be aware that it is very difficult for us to provide any practical help after the trip is completed, so informing us while still traveling will give us the opportunity to resolve the issue in real-time.

    For general contact details please use the following page:

    For airport pick up updates and issues, please contact the emergency number provided on your itinerary no earlier before the scheduled day of your airport pickup on either phone or WhatsApp. 

    Payment schedule

    You are required to pay a non-refundable $500 deposit at the time of reservation. This non-refundable deposit confirms your Meetup Tour booking and you will receive a confirmation email detailing the terms of your reservation. Once the confirmation email has been sent to you, a contract will exist between us from the date we issue the confirmation invoice.

    Please refer to your booking confirmation for specific dates, deadlines and details regarding final payments for your Meetup Tour. For standard Meetup Tours, the program fee balance payment is due 90 days before the departure date.

    Before you leave

    Important notes

  • An airport pick up is included throughout Day 1 of the tour based on arrival times. It is possible you will wait for a few of your fellow travelers before your transfer to our first hotel.
  • A single supplement is available if you’d prefer not to share a room on this trip. The single supplement applies to all nights of your trip and is subject to availability. There are a limited number of single supplements available per trip departure.
  • Travel is always an adventure and, as destinations reopen, there are a few challenges as everyone gets back up to speed and adjusts to the new normal. Our leaders are experts when it comes to dealing with anything unexpected along the journey, so pack your understanding and flexibility, sit back and relax while they take care of the rest.
  • Food and dietary information

    While travelling with us you’ll experience the vast array of wonderful food available in the world. Your group leader will be able to suggest restaurants to try during your trip. To give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat, generally not all meals are included in the trip price. This also gives you more budgeting flexibility. As a rule our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other’s company. If you have dietary requirements and/or food allergies, please let us know prior to departure.

    Strict vegetarians should be aware that a lot of Indonesian cooking contains fermented shrimp paste (terasi) as a basic ingredient. Chicken and eggs are also common in many dishes. Although there are many vegetarian options available, please ensure you are specific as possible when ordering food to ensure that your meal suits your dietary needs.

    Money Matters

    Spending money is a personal choice, and everyone will have different spending habits and needs. It is best to budget a reasonable amount for things like meals not included, drinks, shopping, optional activities, and laundry. It’s always better to bring a little more than you think you’ll need. Please have a thorough look at the itinerary and at what is included so you will be prepared for what isn’t included. Our Meetup Tour is very inclusive, however some meals and extras are not included. This guide should make budgeting a little clearer.

    ATMs are widely available at the airport and in major cities and towns. We recommend always having a small amount of cash with you for small purchases at places that do not accept credit cards. Credit cards are not as widely accepted as you may be used to, though the more touristic areas may accept card with a 3-5% surcharge tacked on. Visa and Mastercard are the most widely accepted credit cards in Bali. Some hotels and restaurants may accept American Express or Diners Club. Remember to alert your bank that you will be traveling before departure to avoid being locked out of your account while abroad, as they may suspect fraud.

    If you want to bring cash from your home country and exchange it, the best place to do this is at the airport. Please note that USD notes older than 2000, as well as foreign currency notes that are old, torn, worn or damaged cannot be changed in Indonesia. We can not guarantee that there will be time to visit a money exchange place on the tour. The best way to get local currency is by using an ATM with a debit card.

    Tips for included activities and day guides are included. Tips for your driver and guide are not. We recommend $10 per day per person for the guide and $8 per day per person for the driver. 

    There may be times when you find yourself exploring solo. When you’re out by yourself, if you’re happy with the services, providing a tip – though not compulsory – is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it’s of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many SoFe destinations.

    Restaurants: 5-20% of the total bill amount is appropriate if tipping is welcome at the establishment.

    The currency in Bali is the rupiah (IDR). Denominations come in notes of Rp. 1,000, Rp. 2,000, Rp. 5,000, Rp. 10,000, Rp. 20,000, Rp. 50,000, and Rp. 100,000 and coins of Rp. 50, Rp. 100, Rp. 200, Rp. 500 and Rp. 1,000.

    We recommend always having small denominations for tipping and small purchases.

    While travelling with us you’ll experience the vast array of wonderful food available in the world. Your group leader will be able to suggest restaurants to try during your trip. To give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat, generally not all meals are included in the trip price. This also gives you more budgeting flexibility. 

    Our budget for meals not included is around USD $200.

    Climate information

    Bali is generally warm and humid with a tropical climate year round. There are two distinct seasons: the dry season, from April to October, and the rainy season, from November to March. Even during the dry season, you can expect some rain. Temperatures are relatively steady throughout the year as well, typically hovering in the upper 70’s or low 80’s during the day. During the rainy season, it’s generally hotter with strong coastal winds and heavy rainstorms that usually pass in a couple of hours or happen mostly at night. 

    Always celebrated on August 17, this is Indonesia’s national day and marks Indonesia’s declaration of independence from the Netherlands in 1945. Around this time you may experience some delays to transport due to events, or alternative accommodation may be need to be sourced due to it being a peak time.

    The important month of Ramadan will be in progress 22 March – 20 April 2023, and the Eid ul-Fitr festival will be held directly at its conclusion for 3-4 days. Ramadan is a festival of sacrifice where the devout refrain from eating or drinking during daylight hours. During Ramadan, business hours are shortened, including opening hours at some tourist attractions. Alcohol is not permitted during daylight hours and many restaurants will be closed. While you should expect some delays and inconveniences during this period, the month is a fantastic opportunity to travel in a Muslim country and witness this unique period, particularly the nightly celebrations when the sun sets and the fast is broken. Please note that although the Eid ul-Fitr festival can also be a fascinating time to travel it’s a period of national holiday. Most government offices and businesses will be closed and some tourist site opening hours may be affected.

    passports, visas, and entry requirements

    For more than 160 countries, a visa is not required to enter Bali for trips under 30 days. At immigration, you will need to show your passport (valid for at least the next six months and with at least two blank pages left) and your onward or return flight ticket. 

    If you are from a country that requires a visa to enter Bali, please contact your local Indonesian Embassy or consulate for more information on the visa application process.

    You need a valid passport to travel internationally. Most countries require that your passport does not expire for at least 6 months after the date you enter. We require your passport details 45 days before departure. When booking your Meetup Tour, please enter your name as it appears on your passport and contact us immediately if there are any errors.

    We recommend taking copies of the main passport pages and other important documents with you as well as leaving copies at home with family or friends.

    As rules and restrictions are constantly changing, please check your government’s foreign travel advisory and visit the following website: .


    Our tours are comfortable and very inclusive with premium accommodations. This means you can pack a little lighter since the hotel will have a wide range of amenities. Since you will be carrying your own bags to the lobby or at the airport, we suggest packing in a way that is manageable for solo travel. You’ll also need a day pack/bag to carry water and a camera etc. for day trips.

    The following is a general list to be used as a guideline. If you think you need more items, pack them.

    See our in-depth Bali packing guide here. 


    – Day pack: for carrying essentials when exploring destinations.
    – Lightweight clothing: A mixture of covering lightweight clothing and some warm layers (depending on the season) are recommended. It is best to check the weather and seasonal information before travelling.
    For visits to religious sites you will also need to wear clothing that covers shoulders and pants/skirts that go past the knee. Perhaps carry a scarf or sarong for these visits. Modest and covering clothing is also preferable when visiting areas outside major cities that are more conservative.
    – Walking shoes or hiking boots.
    – Sandals/flip flops
    – Sun protection – hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm
    – Insect repellent
    – Waterproof jacket (particularly if travelling from October until March)
    – Warm layers in case of chilly nights.
    – Swimming suits


    – Personal medical kit. Your guide will carry a large kit but we recommend you carry items such as, mild pain killers, adhesive bandages and electrolytes.
    – Camera with spare batteries/charger/power bank: You will have access to power to recharge your electrical items most days, however these are a good backup.
    – Electrical adapter plug
    – Hand sanitizer
    – Water bottle – some hotels may have filtered drinking water to refill your bottle.
    – Money belt or pouch
    – Waterproof bag cover or plastic bags


    – A good book, a journal and music player
    – Playing cards

    Please try to avoid bringing unnecessary valuables, and use your hotel safes to store the bulk of your money, passport, and airline tickets. It’s also a good idea to purchase a money belt or pouch that is easily hidden. We strongly recommend that you photocopy all important documents e.g. air tickets, passport, vaccination certificate, etc. and keep the copies separate from the originals. While not valid, a photocopy makes it very much easier to obtain replacements if necessary.

    In Bali, there are two associated plug types: C and F. Plug type C is the plug which has two round pins and plug type F is the plug which has two round pins with two earth clips on the side. You may also find Plug type G which is the plug with three rectangular pins, but it is much less common. Bali operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz. We always suggest bringing a universal adaptor.

    Travel insurance

    Travel insurance is mandatory on all our Meetup Tours. We require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. If you are traveling within your home country or region please confirm before travel that you are entitled to access the public medical system easily should an accident occur. We strongly recommend all travelers have a policy that also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage or personal effects. For international trips, you will not be permitted to join the group until evidence of travel insurance and the insurance company’s 24-hour emergency contact number has been sighted by your leader.

    If you have credit card insurance your group leader will require details of the participating insurer/underwriter, the level of coverage, policy number, and emergency contact number rather than the bank’s name and your credit card details. Please contact your bank for these details prior to arriving in-country. 

    We recommend that you check your government’s advice in relation to the areas you will be visiting for their latest travel information before departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all areas your itinerary covers.

    on the road

    Group Guide

    All tours with The Solo Female Traveler Network are accompanied by a guide who is with the group for the whole trip. The guide’s role is to be the local expert of the destination and coordinate a lot of the on the ground logistics. Premium leaders are SoFe’s most experienced, with in-depth knowledge and extensive local networks to make it a trip of a lifetime. Your guide will provide information on the places you are traveling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. You can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious, and social aspects. At SoFe, we aim to support local guides who have specialized knowledge of the regions we visit. When not already included in your trip, your leader will be able to recommend a local guide service who can share more detailed or specialized information at specific sites should you be interested in delving deeper.


    We use a range of hand-picked accommodation that we choose based on season, group size, and availability.

    10 nights in hotels, including 5 nights at a villa in Ubud, 3 nights at a hotel in Gili Trawangan, and 2 nights at a resort in Canggu

    Rooms are twin share with an ensuite unless you upgrade to a private room, based on availability.

    The accommodation indicated on the webpage is a guideline. On rare occasions, alternative arrangements may need to be made due to lack of availability. A similar standard of accommodation will be used in these instances.

    In the base cost of the tour, a shared room is included. You may choose to upgrade to a private room for an extra charge as long as there is availability. 

    Upgrading to a private room once in Bali is more difficult and may result in a higher cost than advertised on the webpage.

    Our Bali tour is considered premium accommodation including some villa and resort stays. When we stay in 5 star hotels, the standard may be less than what you are used to in terms of design, facilities, and inclusions. If there is a problem with your accommodation, always alert your tour leader so it can be remedied if possible. 

    Sometimes it is not possible to check-in immediately on arrival at some hotels, especially if you arrive before check in time. We can store your luggage and you can explore the surrounding area.  Standard check in time is 4:00pm.

    Check out is at 11:00am on the last day. 

    If you are arriving early or staying late, ask us about extra nights accommodation, based one availability. You may have to switch rooms at the beginning or end of the tour and extra nights are always single rooms unless you are traveling with a friend or family member. 

    All of our accommodations have air conditioning. Should it not work, we will attempt to replace your room or the unit, dependent upon availability. Some evenings can be slightly chilly in Bali, and most accommodations in Bali do not have heating, nor is it necessary. Bedding is always provided, however if you are extra sensitive to the cold, please be prepared with extra layers.

    Optional Activities

    For this tour, we will offer a selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travelers.  All activities are subject to availability, and may be on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities offered in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. For most, they can either be organized independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested in the Group Meeting and they can assist. 

    Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities that are not offered by us have not been assessed by us, and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organizing these activities. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not operated by us is at your own discretion and risk.


    Your transportation throughout the trip will  be in a private air-conditioned vehicle and a speedboat when traveling to Gili T. 

    a few rules

    • Everyone has the right to feel safe when they travel. We don’t tolerate any form of violence (verbal or physical) or sexual harassment, either between customers or involving our leaders, partners or local people. Sexual relationships between a tour leader and a customer are strictly forbidden.
    • Use or possession of illegal drugs will not be tolerated on our trips. If you choose to consume alcohol while travelling, we encourage responsible drinking and expect that you’ll abide by the local laws regarding alcohol consumption.
    • By travelling with us you are agreeing to adhere to these rules. You must at all times comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and drug regulations of all countries visited.
    • The decision of the group leader is final on all matters likely to affect the safety or well-being of any traveler or staff member participating in the trip. If you fail to comply with a decision made by a group leader, or interfere with the well-being or mobility of the group, the group leader may direct you to leave the trip immediately, with no right of refund. We may also elect not to carry you on any future trips booked.
    • If you feel that someone is behaving inappropriately while travelling with us, please inform your tour leader or local guide immediately. Alternatively, contact us on the emergency contact number detailed in the Problems and Emergency Contact section of this page.


    Most national governments provide regularly updated foreign travel advice on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government’s advice for their latest travel information before departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all destinations and activities on your trip.

    We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while traveling, for the safe-keeping of your passport, flight tickets, cash and other valuable items. Leave your jewelry at home – you won’t need it while traveling. Many of our hotels have safety deposit boxes, which is the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is recommended for securing your luggage.

    Your leader will accompany you on all included activities, however, during your trip you’ll have some free time to pursue your own interests or relax and take it easy. While your leader will assist you with the available options in a given location, please note that any optional activities you undertake are not part of your SoFe itinerary, and SoFe makes no representations about the safety of the activity or the standard of the operators running them. Please use your own good judgment when selecting an activity in your free time. Please also note that your Leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it’s deemed necessary due to safety concerns.

    Seat belts are always provided and must be worn in accordance with local law. 

    Depending on where you come from please note that drivers in this part of the world may drive on the opposite side of the road from what you are used to. Look both ways before crossing any road. Traffic and road rules can be a little more chaotic than you might be used to at home. Road rules may be very different from what you are used to. Be careful and aware that pedestrians do not have the right of way.

    While most of the tour, especially in major cities, will be with your guide and the group, petty theft is common in any tourist area. Do not walk around alone at night if it can be avoided and hold your belongings close on public transportation. Your local guide will give you some safety tips throughout your tour, and we suggest heeding this advice.

    As suggested earlier, please do not bring valuables. Use a TSA approved luggage lock to secure your luggage and belongings throughout trip.

    We suggest checking your government’s advice in relation to the areas you will be visiting for their latest travel information before departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all areas your itinerary covers.

    When not with your guide, we recommend the following:

    • Do not walk in isolated areas or at night by yourself
    • If hotel staff need to enter your room, arrange to be either on tour or in the lobby, so you are not alone.
    • Respect the local customs.
    • Do not hire a driver or guide for tours from the street. Always go with a reputable company or ask us to help you arrange any pre or post experiences.
    • Do not accept any invitations for anything from random people on the street.
    • Always carry your tour guide’s contact information and hotel address with you during solo time.
    • Alert your guide of any inappropriate behavior or perceived risk to your safety

    Street harassment such as cat calls, stares, invitations to get in a car/bar/restaurant/home are common in more touristy areas, but will not be a constant part of your trip. These are our tips for responding to this unwanted attention: Here are a few tips for responding to any unwanted attention:

    • Ignore. Don’t even bother smiling. Just keep about your business.
    • Wear sunglasses to avoid eye contact.
    • Ignore. We mean it, so we said it twice! Ignore them but also ignore your internal commentary on it all. Let it roll off your back and walk on focusing on all the amazing things around you.
    • Dress respectfully and you will find both men and women will respond to you in a more respectful manner.
    • While it very unlikely to happen, do feel free to stand up for yourself if you feel threatened. Jordanian men you do not know should not be touching you at all and if you’re in public, people will come to your aid if you make a fuss.

    You can wear whatever you like in Bali, we suggest loose fitting clothing that protects your skin from the sun. Long flowing skirts are comfortable and respectful to the culture. At religious sites, we will be required to cover our knees and shoulders. Feel free to dress however you like the rest of the time. Short skirts, plunging necklines, and tight clothing should be avoided.

    Please do not enter the water without a life vest and a buddy if you are not an experienced swimmer. Alert the leader and guide to your ability level before participating in water activities. Lifeguards are not on duty and our staff are not trained in water rescue. 

    Be particularly aware of motorbike bag snatching, especially in the bigger cities.

    Only use officially licensed taxi companies you can book by phone, from inside an airport or at stands at major hotels.

    phone and internet access

    There is wifi available in most of our accommodations, but it is not always the most reliable, especially in the more rural areas. We suggest purchasing a prepaid sim card at the Bali airport. This option only works on unlocked phones. Just after exiting the airport, you will find the booths of three mobile phone providers: Telkomsel (simPATI), XL, and Indosat/ IM3 Ooredoo.

    Plans and prices can change but expect to pay between $7 to $8USD for a plan that will provide you 4GB of data. You will require your passport to purchase and register your new sim.

    Alternatively, ask your home service provider for international plans.

    medical and health

    All travelers need to be in good physical health in order to participate fully on this trip. When selecting your trip please make sure you have read through the itinerary carefully and assess your ability to manage and enjoy our style of travel. Please note that if in the opinion of our group leader or local guide any traveler is unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or the rest of the group, we reserve the right to exclude them from all or part of a trip without refund.

    You should consult your doctor for up-to-date medical travel information or for any necessary vaccinations before departure. We recommend that you carry a first aid kit as well as any personal medical requirements as they may not easily be obtained while traveling.

    We do not recommend drinking the tap water in Bali, even in the hotels. All accommodation will have drinkable water, sometimes for purchase and sometimes provided with your room.

    As of January 1, 2023, we have updated our policies to require all travelers to show one of the following upon meeting the group on day 1: Proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or proof of negative COVID-19 test conducted no more than 72 hours before day 1 of your trip.

    Bali has some foodie options that many travelers choose to try. Dishes like lawar merah (a traditional salad of raw pork and pig’s blood), urutan (pig intestine sausages), and freshwater eel, as examples, are common among locals and available in some restaurants. Please be careful when consuming this food, as some travelers have gotten sick in the past. We do not include these dishes on our tour, and our tour leader can direct you to the most reputable restaurants locally, but we do not take responsibility for any illnesses caused by food.

    traveling with a group

    With almost all of our travelers coming on the Meetup Tour solo, we have women from different countries, backgrounds, perspectives, and opinions. This is part of what makes our tours so special and what often leaves our travelers with couches to crash on around the world and even long time friendships. Like any group, especially one consisting of people of different ages coming from all corners of the world, this can also cause clashes in culture and disagreements. We promote an environment of kindness, empowerment, and communication, so certain behaviors will not be tolerated for the benefit of everyone’s experience. Remember too that you have responsibilities to the group. If you are requested to be at a place at a certain time, ensure that you don’t keep the rest of the group waiting. We have found time and time again that the very best trips we operate are those where the dynamics within the group work well – this takes just a little effort on your part.Bullying, threatening, and violence of staff, locals, and fellow participants will not be tolerated on our trips.
