4 Indonesian Islands That Are Better Than Bali

Indonesia is an amazing country that’s long been a favourite for backpackers. It offers incredible beaches, beautiful jungles, volcanoes, and some incredible cities. The blend of modern living in the big cities and rich cultural and historical heritage in the countrysides draws so many visitors to Indonesia every single year. But a lot of them end up going to the same place. Indonesia is made up of over 17,000 tiny islands, the most famous of which is Bali. It’s the typical backpacker location with buzzing beach resorts and secluded countryside to explore. It’s easy to see why so many people flock to Bali every year. The beaches are beautiful and there are so many amazing things to see there, but what about the rest of the country. Bali might be great but it’s certainly not the best Indonesian island. If you only go there and nowhere else, you’re really missing out on some of the incredible things that the rest of the country has to offer. If you’re planning a trip to Indonesia and you’re only looking at Bali, here are some other great islands that you should definitely add to your itinerary.

4 Stylish Travel Footwear You Must Own!

If you know me, you know that I love comfort over anything else. But now that I also have to look good for the gram, I have to sacrifice that just a teeny-weeny bit on my travel footwear! I tend to carry only one or two solid sandals for walking and a one pair for those fancy nights when I have to go to a party or dinner. So, here we are. These are some of the best travel footwear that I carry:

  • Basic Brown/Black Sandals:

Now, let me warn you these are pretty hard to find. I’m not talking about the flimsy sandals that they sell which are just looks. I’m talking about the solid pair which you can walk miles in. The material is super soft and comfy, like leather but not leather. I have brown ones from Forever 21 which have survived in pouring rain, 10 km walks and just anything in between. Like the one I’m wearing in the photo below. Of course your travel footwear need to be trendy too!

  • Basic Sneakers:

This is a no-brainer. But ALWAYS carry one pair of stylish, basic black or white sneakers with you. When your flimsy, stylish sandals are unable to take the load, these travel footwear are life saviors! Because of my love of all things black, of course I have black sneakers from Puma. But never under-estimate the power of a solid sneaker when on a holiday!

  • Fancy dinner date sandals:

Yes, of late I have been carrying these too. Since my long & flowy evening dresses don’t look good with either of the shoes above! I usually carry block heels as they are comfy, look good and I can walk miles in them! I usually carry either my grey block heels , gold block heels (which goes with anything!)

  • Closed-toe sandals:

I usually don’t like these personally as I love wearing open sandals at all times, but these go really well with all kinds of dresses too. They give a formal look but since they are flats, they are super comfortable!
