With a new vaccinated travel lane opening with Indonesia on November 29, we’re giving you our exclusive guide to one of Singapore’s favourite destinations in the country: Bali

Yes, it’s true: Bali is going to be open to vaccinated travellers from Singapore this November.

Earlier today, Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) announced new vaccinated travel lanes (VTL) to several new destinations, including India, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and, of course, Indonesia.

Applications for short-term visitors and long-term pass holders will start on November 22 for travellers from India and Indonesia. Fully vaccinated returning Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents do not need to apply if they are travelling via the VTL.

Being one of the most popular (and therefore, most missed!) destinations for a holiday, Bali will definitely rank high on Singaporeans’ list of travel escapes. If you need travel inspiration for the Island of the Gods, we’ve got you covered. From secret dining spots recommended by insiders, to the chicest ways to explore Bali’s coolest enclaves, to the best resorts to rest and relax, this is Tatler’s guide to the best of Bali.
