5 Favourite iPhone Apps for Travel in Indonesia

My 5 Favourite iPhone Apps

Haloooooo! Here we are back again to continue with my 5 Favourite iPhone App Series, where I’m sharing with you my 5 fav apps on various different topics each week for four weeks. Last week, we looked at my 5 fav iPhone Apps for learning Indonesian. You can check it out here.

Today to follow on with my 5 Fav iPhone App Series, I’m focussing on my 5 fav iPhone apps for travel in Indonesia. Of course when it comes to travel {anywhere in the world} my go to apps are Trip Advisor and Agoda. I can’t live without them prior to travelling and whilst on the road. Seriously – THE best! I’m sure you’d all agree.

And whenever I travel to Indonesia specifically, I’m always on the look out for a new travel app to download as I think they are one of the most difficult apps to find. There are quite a few out there but when it comes to quality and accuracy, it can be quite difficult to find just the right thing. I’ve also found it almost impossible to find a travel app that covers all of Indonesia. I know…I guess this is quite understandable…imagine developing an app and all the information to cover all 18,000 islands in Indonesia!? Almost impossible, right? If ONLY I had the time and the money to do it! I’d do it, for sure! {It would be a lifetime project ha!}

But let’s get into it.

My 5 Favourite iPhone Apps for Travel in Indonesia

1. Little Miss Bali {By DYNOMIC}

Little Miss Bali App PicLittle Miss Bali is possibly one the most well known travel apps for Indonesia, however be aware that as its title suggests, it’s ONLY about Bali {and mostly the southern end of Bali} and does not cover other places in Indonesia. So, if you are travelling to Bali – this is definitely the app for you and I’d highly recommend it!

Even though I have been travelling to Bali since I was 14 years old and I have lived there for an extended period of time too, I still find the app useful with it’s current and up-to-date info on various topics. Bali is forever developing and from year to year when I am there, I notice changes all the time. One year’s favourite restaurant or bar may not even be there the following year! So it’s great to have this up-to-date info right in your hand!

The Little Miss Bali app contains some of the best personal recommendations for hotels, villas, places to eat, shopping, surfing, babysitting and much, much, more. It will also keep you up to date with Bali weather forecasts, the current exchange rate for the Indonesian Rupiah to the Australian dollar and more importantly contact details for the Australian Consulate and Medical Centres and hospitals in Bali too.

Little Miss Bali is the must have guide for enjoying Bali, don’t leave home without it.
