I know this question has been asked here multiple times, but I still want to hear some fresh opinions.
Seems like the majority of people here believe in bringing cash to Bali and exchange as you go. I have never brought so much money in cash anywhere (like, in the thousands of USD as we'll be there for a couple of weeks), so I'm very scared that I'll either lose the money or it will be stolen somehow.
I heard the advice regarding carrying a money belt as well as using the safe at the hotel, but I'm still not 100% comfortable with the idea. Is there any other tips, tricks, or advise you would give to me to be at ease?
Would it be wise to maybe bring just half of the money in cash and then withdraw the rest in a safe atm (attached to a bank)? That way I don't risk losing all my travel money at once? Or are even the atms attached to the banks unsafe?
I just don't want to be worried the entire time I'm there that either I'll lose and/or someone will steal my money or my debit card will get skimmed. Please advise. Thank you!Edited: 01 August 2018, 22:11
