The Tampon Situation
Here is an important message for my fellow #menstruating #female #travellers!
Before you come to Bali - check your calender, your app or whatever you use to keep track of your cycle!
If you're due to menstruate during your visit in #bali - do pack those #tampons!!! DO NOT rely on "Everything is cheap in Bali" - because you will be in for a surprise... Tampons (if you actually manage to find them) are #superexpensive !!! In the local pharmacies, general shopping centers or the 24hrs markets they are to be found at ridiculous prices!
And because they are so expensive, they are mainly kept behind the counter and are not even on the shelves together with your other #ladyproducts... The price range is between 100.000 and up to 250.000 Indonesian Rupiah!
Seriously - i checked all sorts of stores for the past 2 days and finally found a pack of 16 (!!!) #digitaltampons (whatever that means) from #helenharper on one of the main roads, but not in #ubud center, for "only" 85.000 INR (A little over 5 Euros) Wooohoooo - Bargain - (still not)!!!
So there you go - pack them. Pack plenty. You really don't want to practice Yoga having to wear those big ass pads!
This actually applies to basically all Asian countries... Be prepared... This is FYI and you are welcome LOL
With bloody love, Denise
