Next tip on our list of travel tips is to make sure you exchange currency in advance. Even if you think those credit cards can save you from all your travel expenses including food, entrance fees, and shopping, it’s still important to stack some cash in your wallet.

 

5. Pack clothes that are suitable for your destination

You don’t wear jackets in tropical countries like Thailand or Philippines, don’t ya? Or, wear tank tops to South Korea or Japan on a winter season? You’ll look weird not only to the locals but to other travellers too. Make sure to know the weather when you’re visiting so you know which kind of clothes to pack. Then again, try to pack light if you plan to go on several shopping sprees.

 

6. Bring a backpack or a tiny purse

Adventure travellers and solo backpackers can relate to this! You don’t need to bring your huge, luxurious Gucci bag if you want to enjoy hiking or walking. Make sure you pack a bag or backpack that can store all your basic essentials when you’re out and about. Doing this will spare you from the hassle of lugging around a big bag especially if you plan to take the bus or train.

 

7. Make some local friends

You know what’s the best thing about travelling to different places? You can make many friends! This is why it’s good to practice your English and learn basic greetings. When you make local friends, you’ll surely have fresh news on the latest trends that are happening in their country so you could make more interesting travel plans and ideas the next time you visit them.

 

8. Have fun and enjoy your travel!

Now go and make more memories!

Staying at Le Pirate Boatel

Le Pirate Boatel is located 10 minutes away from the mainland of Labuan Bajo. Its structure and design are both stunning in pictures and in real life. The boat-meets-hotel has 10 waterfront cabins with only curtains to separate you from the outside. Every cabin has a private deck, a hammock lying above the ocean and a swim ladder. The whole boat only offers shared bathrooms for the cabin occupants, 2 bathrooms for male and 2 bathrooms for female. Note that the Boatel employs a barefoot policy to impose cleanliness within the premises of the boat and to make sure that the dirt from the islands doesn’t make its way inside the boat. The Boatel also offers standard services such as breakfast, free shuttle to harbour (only 10 minutes from Boatel to the harbour), snorkelling equipment and Wi-Fi.

Just like any normal Indonesia hotels, the Boatel comes with its own restaurant, bar and sun deck just at the top of the cabins. So, whenever guests need a break from their cabin, the deck serves as an interactive area where the guest can mingle with each other and have sumptuous meals and drinks. And if you are looking to relax and sunbathe, you can stay at their sun deck so you can unwind with the beautiful scenery of the islands and ocean as you get the sun-kissed skin that you aim for. It’s true that there are lots of things to do in Indonesia especially here in Le Pirate where you can experience nature and meet new people at the same time.

 

So if you are looking for a place that will give you a dose of adventure and unique experience then Le Pirate Beach Club Boatel is a place to include in your Indonesia travel guide.
