Summer Travel Guide: Bali
With Bali, the most important thing to remember is keep it light. With Bali's tropical climate, endless beaches, and lush forests and rice paddy fields, you'll want to ensure that you stay cool and comfortable while enjoying the gorgeous terrain. Opt for sportier slip-on espadrilles and flats over cute summery wedges because the unpaved roads can be unforgiving. Lightweight, natural fabrics (like worn-in cotton and linen) work best in the heat, and you'll benefit from keeping a chic cover-up or maxi dress on hand — especially if you find yourself in one of Bali's many sacred Hindu temples, where a little modesty is required. If you're all about surf, sand, and sun, then plan on practically living in your bikini. Translation: invest in a swimsuit you love and that can be worn again and again.
