DO

*
Convert money at a reputable looking money changer shop and independently calculate before changing. Shop around as the rate may vary, check whether the commission is added or not.
*
Put on loads of high factor waterproof Sun Cream especially if you intend to spend a lot of time in the water
*
Drink a lot of bottled water and eat a lot of fresh fruits - do your body a favour
*
Be careful with your belonging at all times. Leave your important documents in your hotel safe and wander around with the copies.
*
Respect the slow pace of processions - don't honk
*
Haggle when buying, except on price-tagged goods
*
Buy "immodium" to relieve bouts of Bali belly
*
Reconfirm your outbound flight.
*
Show your respect by wearing sarong when entering temples.


DON'T

*
Step on offerings in the street - walk around them
*
Attempt to swim outside designated areas on the beach
*
Take drugs. This carry the death penalty according to Indonesian laws
*
Touch people's heads. It's very offensive to Balinese Hindus
*
Enter temples during menstruation.

Forget to put salt on your food and drink water - you will probably sweat a lot
*
Use your left hand in sacking or handing over something to someone as it is considered impolite. If there is no other option then express your apology.

Bali is a province of the Republic of Indonesia. Honeymooners and surfers (and sometimes honeymooning surfers) flock to the island for its beautiful beaches, while active travelers are drawn to hike able volcanoes, rice paddies, and lakes. The predominantly Hindu island has strong spiritual roots, evidenced by its many temples and shrines. As luxury accommodations open at a rapid rate, existing moderate hotels and resorts are playing catch-up with renovations and upgrades designed to lure visitors with western-style comforts
