Not every place abroad allow incomplete attires whether for men or women. Bali too is not an exception in this case.

Further, even if this point slips out from your mind, you will remember it again when observing lots of shoes placed outside homes and temples.
3. Do Insist On Blue Taxi
No doubt, with a destination that receives tremendous tourists every year, there are lots of conveyance options like scooters, bicycles, automobiles, vans and of course public transport. However, if you are willing to hire a rented car then it is always recommended to get blue taxis, which are renowned for their ultimate honest services. These could be identified with “Bali Taxis” marked on them.
4. Do Look Both Sides While Crossing
Well, there are countries that strictly follow traffic rules. But while being in Bali, you cannot expect people following such rules. Though, they keep an eye to avoid road rage while riding, but they often get into the wrong side of the road. Hence, this is always important to look on both sides while crossing a road in Bali.
5. Do Practice Some Basic Balinese
Undoubtedly, while exploring any abroad destination, it is not easy to understand or communicate its local language. Even Balinese too is not simple for outsiders, but visitors could learn some quick and basic language to express their gratitude to the locales. Some of these words include:
- Hello- Swastyastu
- Thank You- Suksma
- I am Sorry- Ampura
- You’re Welcome- Rahajeng Ruah
- Good Morning- Selamat Pagi
1. Don’t Use/Consume Drugs
Drugs is easily available in Bali. Many locales can walk to tourists to sell the drugs. Well, this is one side of story. The consumption or purchasing drugs in Bali can lead to serious criminal consequences. Drug is an offence in Bali and Balinese law does not tolerate usage of drugs by any means. Moreover, the rules are same for the residents and for the visitors.
2. Don’t Touch Anyone’s Head
Balinese people consider head as sacred part of body and hence they do not like anyone to touch their head. Hence, even if there is a small kid, one should restrict touching his/her head.
3. Don’t Get A Tattoo
Do not rely on tattoo artists at Bali even if you cannot resist while spotting a tattoo studio. There are many tattoo studios, which use textile chemical dyes and the same are unsuitable to be used on human body. Hence, it is better to maintain a distance than to regret later.
4. Don’t Surf Without Information
Beaches are alluring spots for tourists. And Bali even has some great beaches for surfing. However, one shouldn’t trust quiet waves every time while opting for surf. Always gather information from local surfers as they have good experience of the sea. Also, never overlook or neglect the red flags on a beach as the waves may get stronger in those areas.
Believe it; choosing Bali tour packages for your honeymoon could be more memorable, provided if the above do’s and don’ts are considered thoroughly.
