Tips for your journey to Bali:

  1. Try to explore as many local things as possible. Bali is a really nice island so don’t just sunbath on the beach but go and explore!
  2. Respect their religion and if you go to some temple try to behave as they want you to do. You should have covered shoulders and knees when visiting some religion site.
  3. Try to be careful as much as possible. These destinations are not very dangerous but these are also not the safest ones so don’t leave your wallet everywhere and behave safely. You can get robbed very easily when you don’t behave safely. People of Bali are really nice people but there are some individuals which are trying to rob the tourists all the time.
  4. You should definitely see some local dance show. It is part of their traditional culture. The best place for seeing this is Ubud – the cultural centre of Bali.
