2) Take a torch with you especially if travelling to Lombok,  Sumbawa (black outs are regular), Flores, Nusa Lembogan & The Gili

3) Take a little rope for a clothes line or use a leg rope, not all resorts offer drying racks.

4) If travelling with small children take museli bars and snack food with you.  You can buy everything in the Carrafour but if its something they must have take it.
