What You Need to Bring for Your Weekend Getaway
What is more fun than traveling with the people you love for a quick getaway out of the city? You get to explore culinary delights such as in Braga Street of Bandung, feeding animals in the Safari Zoo of Puncak, enjoying the windy day while drinking a good cup of hot choco in Bogor, and so much more! Are you the type of person who likes to travel spontaneously or with careful planning of each place that you want to visit? Well, whatever type of person you are, please don’t forget to bring these essential items to ease your travel and spend good times with your loved ones.
Definitely! This is the first item on the list. Although big cities offer cashless payments, not every part of the suburbs accepts debit or credit cards. Especially when you want to try out local street food such as a bowl of Empal Gentong in Cirebon or an ear of grilled corn in the breezy night of Puncak.
Indonesia has only two seasons, rainy and dry. However, in areas such as Bogor, you probably couldn’t predict when it is going to rain. It is also known as the city of rain if you haven’t known this unique fact about Bogor. Bringing an umbrella during your travels is essential to protect you from the blazing sun or to cover you up in the stormy rain.
3. Hand sanitizers
While exploring some street foods, you might not always find a good place to wash your hands before you eat. Carrying your own hand sanitizers might be handy because you won’t have to look for a restroom to wash your hands.
4. First aid
When you scraped your knee while walking on the pavement, or when you suddenly got a papercut on your fingertip, a first aid kit will come to the rescue. Keeping a proper first aid kit allows you to have the proper supplies that help you to handle an emergency.
Don’t forget to capture the picturesque scenery of Lembang or the aesthetic foods that you had in a cafe in Bogor. Carry a camera with you so that you can relive the moments that you had in some time in the future. Remember to bring the battery pack and your camera has an empty memory card.
6. Extra clothing
You will never know what kind of weather or situations that you will face during your travel. It doesn’t do you harm to bring an extra pair of clothing, right? Especially when you are traveling with young children, you might want to change their clothes after running around the extensive Bogor Botanical Gardens.

A road trip is always about preparing and stuffing snacks in your car that you will enjoy while blasting with your jam in your playlist. Stop by to convenience stores in rest areas to buy different kinds of snacks or cooked meals in small food kiosks.
Last but not least, don’t forget the necessary travel documents such as attraction tickets that you’ve booked online, highway cards, licenses, and so on.
