Sim Card in Bali And Best Bali Tourist Sim Card

PREPAID SIM CARD IN BALI BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about internet and data connection in Bali is amazing especially if we compare with the Philippines where we were coming from. Bali is an island and most of the places you will have 4G and good wifi connection. Only in a few remote places in the North the connection can be intermittent.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is getting a prepaid sim card in Bali. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime. We recommend you to get your Bali tourist sim card in the airport.  

Since there is no big difference with prices and packages. It’s so useful to leave the airport with your prepaid sim card in Bali to order Grab or checking maps to your next destination. You will have to show your passport if you buy your Bali sim card in the airport or even if you book online your prepaid sim card in Bali.
