Great Experiences for Schoolies in Bali

kuta-bali-schoolies5Most students are always ready to start planning their Schoolies week as soon as it goes on sale. For those who participated in the schoolies in Bali event they often wouldn’t even consider spending schoolies week anywhere else. It certainly is easy to understand why when you consider just how awesome Bali truly is.

Kuta certainly becomes the hot spot and the most favoured area although there are lots of things to see and do during the schoolies break. The majority of young people who participate in this event have spent a gruelling year hitting the books and they are ready to just enjoy all that life has to offer them through a schoolies in Bali adventure.

kuta-bali-schooliesIt is a common scene to see students start watching the news to see what is going to be said about Bali and how it is preparing for the on rush of eager schoolies. With this being such a favoured location amongst the students, the residents of Bali start preparing for their arrival far in advance.

Although you may be thinking of the non-stop fun, and putting the famous Bali sunset club as your first place to hit you need to keep in mind that the hotels are soon filled here. You can just imagine the big disappointment you will be facing if you don’t book your accommodations early. You may be new to researching schoolies in Bali and aren’t too sure where the best place to stay at would be. You can avoid the risk of disappointment and not having to worry about doing a search for a place to stay by letting a travel agent look after all that for you. At the same time you can have all your travel arrangements looked after by them as well.

Chances are you are going to be going with other schoolies so you may want to encourage them to make all their arrangements at the same time as you. That way you will be more likely to be able to travel together and that’s half the fun of a schoolies week.

kuta-bali-schoolies3There will be a lot of parties going on and for safety factors it’s always wise to attend any of the Bali functions for schoolies in a group. There will be plenty of drinking and some people do tend to get a bit carried away with this that can lead them to trouble. For the most part though, a good time is had by all. Even though you will soon become part of the crowd you are still in an unfamiliar place so it’s wise to stay with your friends.

If you begin to tire of the party scene you may want to check out if there are any schoolies events being held during your schoolies in Bali week. These are usually alcohol free events yet they are really popular when they are available.

Try to plan your time so you enjoy the day as well as the nighttime events in Bali. Also if you are up for shopping then you are sure to find some great deals waiting for you.

In addition to speaking Balinese/Indonesian, most people in Bali speak English reasonably well, especially those who are linked with the tourism industry (eg. hotel staff, taxis, shop staff). You will have no issues with communication in Bali.
No. When you are shopping or purchasing things in Bali you will find that the prices are generally lower than what they would be in Australia.
Enjoy the amazing food available in Bali. The food includes all the normal stuff you would expect (remember that Australians are one of the main visitors to Bali!) It would include things like Pizza, Chicken, Steak, Pasta, Fish and Chips, Wedges, Seafood, Burgers, Fresh Fruit. Basically, all the things you would be used to in Australia. In addition, there is the local Balinese food available, Italian food and other European and Asian food. Meals are quite cheap in Bali.
Yes. There are so many food outlets available that you are very likely to find multiple options for your dietary requirements and because most of the Balinese are Hindu, most of them are vegan or vegetarian, so there are plenty of vegan/vegetarian foods available.
You don’t need a passport to make a booking, but you will need one before you travel. You get them at the Post Office. It’s a good idea not to wait too long after making a booking to start organising your passport. Try not to leave it any later than 2 months before you travel.
Yes, you do need a visa to get into Bali. This is done on arrival in Bali and costs $45.00. The departure tax is also paid at the airport on your way out and is around $20.00.
Yes. The electricity supplies the same voltage output. You will just need a universal adaptor to be able to plug in your electrical items. You can get these from most convenience stores, online, or at the airport when you’re departing Australia, they are usually under $20.00. It’s also a good idea to bring a power board in addition to the adaptor (so that you can plug in multiple items at once if necessary). These adaptors are also available in Bali if you forget.
Bali is in the same time zone as Western Australia (UTC +8)
Please consult your doctor regarding immunisations.
The local currency in Bali is called Rupiah. Although this varies, you can currently get 10,000 Indonesian Rupiah with $1 Australian. You can exchange your money whilst still in Australia or at the airport when you arrive in Bali, however, you can also exchange money at the local money exchange shops within walking distance of the resort. Count your money carefully, some money exchange stores tend to miscalculate. The best option is to use your Australian ATM card, some of them work in the ATMs in Bali and will give you the local Rupiah Currency. Almost all Australian ATM cards work if they have “Cirrus” or “Maestro” written on them.
Bali is a unique and an epic School Leavers experience. Booking an official Sure Thing Schoolies package takes your experience to the next level of awesomeness.
Absolutely. This is a must to ensure you that have no problems at check-in. It will also ensure you are at a “Verified” School Leavers Resort – these resorts must meet guidelines of safety, prime location, good rooms, School Leavers friendly staff and it also ensures that you don’t miss out on the genuine School Leavers experience.
Just like the hottest concert tickets… The schoolies hotel rooms get snapped up nice and early, the earlier you book, the better it is for you. To get things rolling, contact schoolies@surething.com.au and let them know how many people are in your group. From there, they will send you an itinerary of the best available rooms and will give you details on how you can make them yours!
