From Bali Tips today: shipping important documents or small packages to Bali. You probably won’t need anything from home if you’re on a short holiday, but if you need something quickly and reliably, DHL Bali or Fedex Bali is the way to go. It’s not cheap, but sometimes the difference between available and not available is all the difference in the world. Fedex from California took four days.

I’ve sent small items to Bali from the US using standard mail that have arrived in Bali successfully within 7-10 days, un-tampered with. I once also sent three heavy plastic tubs of books to Bali (what does one do in paradise?…) that arrived unopened, no problem.
However while picking up my books at the Tuban post office near the airport, there was the issue of the powerful-looking young Dutch ladies on the phone loudly to Holland, and quite upset they were too, over having a complete absence of home made cookies in the package they were picking up. I couldn’t help but overhearing, as they were lecturing the poor postal workers about just how much they missed Mom’s cookies, to the point that I was pretty sure that there would soon be new jobs available at the facility. I got myself out of there before I gave in to the temptation to tell them where they could get wonderful cookies in Bali. Anyway, the next time you REALLY need mom’s cookies in Bali, rest assured that you’ve got reliable options in DHL or Fedex.
