If you have done that, next, find out about the weather, transportation, places to be visited, documentation used, where to cook or eat, and the outfit during the trip. Lastly are emergency contacts, the nearest hospital, and others. If this is completed, your vacation is not disturbed by things you should have prepared. The simple case that frequently happens is finding out the location of your hotel is far from any restaurant.

Prepare All Documents
Document preparation is also crucial both for group and solo traveling. Here are some tips:
- Prepare several hard copies of your identity for security reasons.
- Please put them in difficult places for others to reach, such as your inner bag or in your shirt pocket.
- Transfer some funds to the various accounts that you have.
This is done for prevention so that you still have your identity and money in case your bag is stolen. Remember to also prepare the softcopy to email, Google Drive, or send it to your closest family at home.
Because you are on a solo vacation, packing is also a concern because you cannot share your belongings with others. Take as needed, and don’t overdo it. If you are vacationing at the beach on Sumba Island, bring beach clothes that match the number of days on vacation, not too many or too few. Personal medicines are also recommended to bring.
Update Social Media or Live Location
For security purpose, updating your social media while on vacation is a good idea. If this is completed, you can be monitored by family or friends even from afar. For example, taking pictures with horses on the beach or selfies in front of Bali Hotels. However, if you find it troublesome and more private. You can share your live location via Whatsapp or any messenger privately with your family or friends and let them know where you are as often as possible. If your vacation spot is relatively quiet, we advise you to come to the lodging or hotel on time. This is to prevent crime, considering that you are unfamiliar with the site in a foreign area.
