If you go to non-touristy areas and go swimming, you will see that the locals swim with their clothes on. Although swimming in swimwear is not prohibited, you may feel more comfortable here if you also wear a t-shirt and pants over your swimwear.
Dress shoes/ sandals
When you are in Indonesia, buy a nice sarong. This is the ideal garment in Indonesia. You can use the sarong as a stylish skirt, as a cloth to sit on, as a sheet and as a shawl (for example, if you are wearing short clothes and want to visit a temple). This sarong is also a beautiful souvenir and reminder of your trip when you get back home.

Power bank (on the plane, you have to carry he power bank in your hand luggage and the power bank may not be larger than 27,000 mAh)
Laptop & charger

ON THE ROAD
Snacks (no fresh products because of the customs rules)
DURING YOUR FLIGHT
