There are certain preparations that should be made before you travel to Bali (or anywhere) to prevent the occurrence of adverse events, and to ensure that you and your family are prepared in the event an adverse event occurs. Ensure you complete the following before your travels -
We had our "My Trip To Bali - Fly It Quiet Travel Activity Pack" ready to go! This activity pack includes several activities for our son to complete on the plane on the way over and while we are on holiday. Activities are designed to help kids learn about the place they are travelling to. Topics include traditions, food, flag, culture, art, animals and more. There are drawing, Q&A, true & false, dot to dot, word find and lots of other activities.
Because the flight from Perth is so short (just over 3 hours), some airlines do not have in flight entertainment.
So make sure you pack the iPads, iPhones, Nintendo DS, Leap Pad and any other of their favourite entertainment systems. And don't forget their headsets too!
