Heavenlee helpful HINTS:
* Turkish Towel can double up as a baby wrap on the plane and also be used by the pool we have both kids and adult sizes and lots of colours available. These can be purchased from www.heavenswim.com.
* Visa on arrival is currently US$35 (they also accept $50 AUD, or the equivalent according to the exchange rate, change will be given in IDR). Departure tax is payable if you booked your ticket prior to February 9th (or Feb 25th for Air Asia) and is 200,000 IDR (children under 2 are exempt from the charge).
* We highly recommend to take Mosquito products as there are bad all year round and become worse at sunset and around water. – Wrist bands and patches can be found from your local chemist warehouse store – check out vanillamozi.com, which sell creams and candles which will help keep the mosquitos away – There is a 100mls liquid limit when going through the airport this also includes water for baby bottle, after passing customs you can order some hot water from the cafe. – When taking baby formula its so much easier, safer and lighter to take the boxes which already have the formula in packets which is packaged up per serve.
Most importantly don’t forget your swimwear. Ensure to pack a few pairs of bathers and rash tops and board shorts or bikini bottoms as kids are always in and out the pool, check out our full range at www.heaveleeswim.com
