Tips for Holidaymakers Visiting Bali

 

Best Time to Visit 

Located in the tropical region, Bali has a warm and humid climate throughout the year. The best months to visit this tropical paradise are April, May, June and September. During these months, Bali is less humid and the hotel tariffs are cheaper too! Moreover, many shops offer attractive discounts. July and August are the busiest periods of the peak season.

 

Respect the Religious Traditions and Customs

Religion plays an important role in the Balinese way of life. Balinese Hinduism, an amalgamation of Hinduism and local beliefs, is widely practiced while other religions like Islam, Christianity and Buddhism co-exist harmoniously. When exploring the different holy sites of the island, travellers are expected to dress modestly and behave appropriately. On the day of Nyepi, a Hindu celebration, all the public places are shut down, including the airport. So, plan your travel accordingly. Tourists must avoid criticising the religions practised in Bali as it may hurt the religious sentiments of the locals.

 

Travel Tips for Holidaymakers in Bali

 

Stay Away from Stray and Wild Animals 

While stray and wild animals might appear harmless, they can be carriers of deadly diseases. In the past few years, there have been several medical cases where people have died due to rabies. Travellers should avoid touching animals. Also, monkeys are infamous for their dangerous behaviour. Keeping a safe distance from stray and wild animals is the best choice for visitors holidaying in Bali.

 

Pay Tips at the Restaurants and Bars

The wages in Bali are quite low! Still, the locals work with a smile in restaurants and bars. Tourists should pay some extra bucks, as a token of appreciation, if they have received good service from an eating place. As a common practice, customers leave a tip at the bars and restaurants here. For years, Bali has been a destination where tipping is appreciated but not taken for granted.

 

Shopping

Haggling in Bali seems compulsory! As a general rule of thumb, travellers should not pay more than half of the original offer! Also, shopping with a tour group might not be the best step as tour operators associate themselves with large retail businesses to earn substantial commissions. Travellers should shop independently and in modest markets to purchase the right products at the right prices.
