How to Avoid Bali Belly?

Mostly Bali Belly can be avoided. Our tips and tricks to avoid Bali Belly are as follows:

  • Never drink the tap water
  • Wash your teeth with bottled water
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Keep an antibacterial hand sanitiser with you to use before eating
  • Stay hydrated

What to Do When You’ve Got Bali Belly?

  • Norit is charcoal tablets that can be purchased from local minimarts and pharmacies. Lots of people swear by this as an excellent treatment to rid Bali Belly
  • Red cordial is another treatment for Bali Belly which is used by avid Bali travellers
  • Lots of bottled water
  • Imodium or maxolon can work a treat as well (you can get this from your local GP before you leave)
  • When travelling with children we always advise to take some sachets of electrolytes with you to keep them well hydrated if they happen to get Bali Belly

Please seek advice from a doctor if your symptoms persist or get worse. Here’s a list of medical and emergency contacts in Bali, in case you need it. 

Make sure you always travel with travel insurance – medical bills can be very costly without it!

Here’s to a Bali Belly free holiday for you all!
