We asked people living in Indonesia to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"I have only 1 wish that I've brought along with me which is sufficient supply of medicine that my family are use of taking. As for, wishing that I had left behind are as follows: 1) Personal items that all of our friends gave us. 2) Furnitures that we bought and treasured for so many years. 3) Books that I've been holding on for so many years," said a member in Jakarta, Indonesia.

"When moving to Indonesia, prepare to pack clothes appropriate to the climate of the area you are moving to. Be sure to also pack items such as sunscreen and insect repellant to protect yourself from the sun and insect-borne illnesses. Additionally, important documents such as your passport and visas should be packed in an easily accessible place. Other items such as toiletries, a flashlight, and first-aid supplies should be brought along as well. Electronics such as laptops, phones, and chargers are also essential items to pack before your move. Furthermore, items for entertainment and for making meals such as books, board games, cookware, and utensils are important to include in your move," remarked another expat who made the move to Indonesia.
