    Hey guys!
    I'm planning for a holiday this April to Bali. Just wanna ask if it's a good idea to bring my vape in my hand carry bag. Just a VTC mini, TVF4 and 1 battery. Is it a good idea? Can I bring it back here at Australia without any problems? I appreciate any comments. Cheers!

    Never had a problem with taking my vape gear to Bali & back.
    Last tiem I took a box mod with spare 18650 batts in battery boxes, over 100ml of juice split into 4x 30ml bottles & a spare rebuildable atty, with replaceable coils spare for the other atty, all in my carry on luggage & back up pen style batts.
    If there was going to be an issue, I'm sure that would have drawn attention.

    Similar experiences on 2 trips so far.
    Theres a couple of vape shops around bali, and if you are around denpasar, check out Gods Vape. Its kind of a local place, they speak very little english but they have a nice selection of goodies and pretty well priced

    Thank you guys! It's really good to try some local brews. I've also read about Gods Vape, maybe I'll stop by if I have time to spare.

    Not hard to do in Bali, so many little "stores", short streets going everywhere, cars driving on any side of the road they choose, Bintang cheaper than water.
    It all gets quite confusing, especially because it's hot & you need to drink a lot to keep your fluids up, so because Bintang is cheap it's the drink of choice! LOL

    At last check (last March/April) - around 20-25,000 rupiah for a bottle?
    that's around $2-$2.50
    Might be slightly different now, but that's what you'll pay in fairly low key spots. Restaurants and trendy bars will be 40-50k ($4-$5).

    It's a decent brew, everywhere seems to have it nice and cold, really takes the edge off in the humidity. I miss Bali.

    Last I was there (2yrs ago) it was around 15000R for a king brown (don't bother with the stubbie size bottles). 20-25000R at the more expensive market stalls but if you know where too look you'll get it cheaper.
    Water by comparison was up to 6000Rupiah for a 300ml bottle lol
    Of course in the cheaper stores water is cheaper than that but it's a favorite joke in my family that Bintang is cheaper than water in Bali, which it is depending on where you buy each.

    Also you are allowed to walk around drinking alcohol, so when out shopping etc or on the beach I always had a King Brown of Bintang in my hand with my PV in the other, until I invested in a king brown size beer cooler & turned it into a lanyard & had "Bintang Hands Free" :D
    I'd just buy 1 bottle at a time (unless taking them back to the hotel), finish it then walk into the next shop & buy another & literally every 2nd or 3rd shop sells Bintang.

    Going to Bali soon and guess what; we booked a place based on other criteria and yesterday I was exploring the area on Google maps and there is a vape store that just opened up about 4 doors down on the same street! Also found out they sell Swedish snus retail in another cafe less than 2 km away! Hello, nicotine heaven!
